Given the events of yesterday, all my words seem trite. However, I couldn't *not* discuss the horrific events which unfolded in Charlottesville, VA - and, call all of us to action - to become unsung heroes in our own lives.
"I feel a pull to recognize I have truly been blessed - with not just the standard two grandmothers, but including my paternal grandmother, with three beautiful, strong role models who have assumed the mantle of love and the title of Grandma." How a prayer session made me recognize my irrational approach to the relationship with my grandfather's second wife, and a hope I am able to express my love for my second grandmother in a meaningful manner.
This week, I challenge us to recognize the lies perpetuated by Satan. And, immediately turn your thoughts to Christ - Christ loved ALL of you... enough to die for you!
CWBN topic this month is "How my faith helps me worry less." At that moment, I knew I needed to share my favorite prayer (all 5 words), and the devotion coming up the first Sunday after Easter EVERY year - which happens to be this Sunday!
This weekend - between yesterday's Feast of the Annunciation, and today's homily addressing Jesus' role in our lives, I spend some time contemplating the yes I give God in my daily life, and the manner with which I give my yes. My weekly link-up with My Sunday Best!
