Let us juxtapose ‘For it shall come to pass’ and ‘all things must pass.’ The former looks forward in anticipation of hopeful events, the latter often connotates relief from unpleasantness. We are funny creatures in our desire for the good and our dread of the bad, when it fact they are both really the same, coming and going, passing in the fullness of time. How we choose to mark our time in the process of its passing (ongoing, infinite and unfathomable) is up to us. Let us be joyful, even in our misery. Let us be the miraculous living manifestations of God that we are. For unfettered living we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
