I have to admit I have been running the live feed of the Chilean rescue on my computer. I have been working on other things all day. I am not glued to it, but time to time I bring it to the foreground to check on the egress of the miners. Every time that capsule appears, I cry.
I cannot help it. I know what it is like to feel hemmed in, closed off, afraid that you are forgotten. I know that these men must have felt all of those things until they knew that their rescuers were on their way…and, that in time, sky and sea would be theirs again.
Thank you, God for the spacious place that is now theirs again, and mine.
