Hang Time

leave a comment »

Sweet Adoration!  I stopped by to “hang” with my Lord, to leave some intentions behind for some people who really need some prayers (including myself).  I just miss Him.  I know He’s always around, but I can’t quite explain just why I feel so much closer to Him near the Eucharist.   Those who know, enlighten me.  In any case, it was nice to give thanks.  I’m glad the Church has this tradition.

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

“For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Luke 11:10)

I sat in Mass this morning and got a delicious dose of inspiration from the three readings that were assembled so well by the Magistrate.  (Genesis 18: 20-32; Colossians 2: 12-14; Luke 11: 1-13) Read the rest of this entry »

What’s Best for Me

leave a comment »

I am in such a state of uncertainty lately. I am tempted to make haste decisions and I am struggling so hard to avoid that. I keep praying for God to illuminate the narrow path a little more brightly, so that I may watch my steps carefully.

In the meantime, I’ve taken up a new mission in my life: to be more spontaneous. I just spent a couple of days this past week with my brother and his family and being spontaneous. I’ve been very open-minded about how I spend my time. I had blogged several weeks ago that I have been finding myself pleasantly surprised by the opportunities that have presented themselves by my just being there.

But being spontaneous, for me, also means watching the wake of destruction I can leave. I don’t intend to hurt anyone, but I am also keenly aware of that I can be focused on a single goal and I may fail to see the bigger picture. I have to put my trust in God and in my friends to keep me mindful of what is best for me.

Spontaneity is Refreshing

with 3 comments

It’s been a long weekend, full of delightful surprises in my social life.  I decided to be spontaneous on Friday evening and take a quick trip to Houston to stay with friends.  It was either that or face four days of being alone, watching sappy DVDs and the World Cup.  I had forgotten how much I love being spontaneous.
