“A Mother’s Touch”

A wounded soldier returned from Viet Nam. He was in critical condition. He was blind, his mind was clouded, and his body was mangled. His mother traveled over 2,000 miles to be by his bedside. As soon as she entered the hospital room she laid her hands on his brow without saying a word. Instantly he siad, “Mother, is that you? It must be you!” She hadn’t spoken, but he knew the tender touch of her hand.

That’s the way it is with God. We can’t see Him, and yet we feel His touch upon our lives. We speak to Him but receive no audible answer. And yet we leave His presence calmed and consoled as a child.
