And Moses took with him the bones of Joseph…
Exodus 13:19

The patriarch Joseph had made his family promise that if Israel ever left Egypt he would not be left behind. Just imagine these long years of desert camping and recamping, with the sarcophagus of Joseph ever a part of the burdens. It is a startling reminder that we carry with us those who have gone before us, not visibly, as here, but in our hearts and in the gifts they have left us.

This is a day to pray with gratitude for those who have either mentored us or shared their wisdom with us.
