Chocolates and books (novels, prayer books and even coloring books) are the top presents I receive from my visitors on a daily basis.
And I appreciate them tremendously.
Personal notes and messages from people I know and don’t know (total strangers) bring so much joy to me as they are very uplifting.
Indeed, the time I spend for reading, prayerful reflections and mental calisthenics has doubled, if not tripled, in detention. I also have more time now to ensure my physical fitness thru regular exercise.
In this light, I consider my present forced circumstance a blessing…
Thank you Lord!
