Photo Prayer / September 2016

September 22, 2016


My wife tells me the latest:

A doctor and lawyer with two small children are getting divorced.

A recently-retired man faces aggressive dementia.

A 59-year-old woman falls to her death at a local adventure park.


I have no stories for my wife, only photos to share:

A young woman sits at a train station.

Bright orange workmen surround a backhoe.

A bridge spans the Hackensack River.


How is it that the world, 

so in need of prayer,

is also sublime?
