Uncomfortable Compassion – TODAY’S THOUGHT, WORD AND HOPE


(August 3)


What better way to share with others who share the daily battle and frustrations with COPD/Asthma than by passing on some daily words and thoughts that bring hope and renewal, because as we all know – without that horizon of hope, our daily renewal of faith and fight can dim in a hurry.

So take, read, meditate and hopefully find some hope to attach to your faith for today – – – – –


THE THOUGHT – from Helen Steiner Rice:

A word of understanding

Spoken in an hour of trial

Is an unexpected miracle

That makes life more worthwhile.


“My mouth will speak word of wisdom; the utterance from my heart will give understanding.”  (Psalms 49:3 NIV)

THE HOPE – on this day we must remember that sometimes compassion feels uncomfortable, especially when we are in the middle of our own battles with an life changing illness, but being and feeling compassionate for others and their plight is as important as nearly anything in our own life.  For showing true compassion for others and whatever they may be struggling with or through, not only gives us a sense of true living within our own battles while also reflecting on to others to them to do the same and possible bounce that compassion back upon us in those necessary times of need.  (Billy Dursens)
