Prayer does not come easily when I have a cold. In times of “real” sickness and pain, I can at least cry out to Jesus. But mostly I just want to sleep when I have a cold. I’m thinking Jesus understands. I would guess that being fully human means that Jesus caught a cold or … Continue reading Can a Cold be a Sacred Pause?
