24 This is the very day of the Lord that brings
gladness and joy, filling our hearts with glee.Psalm 118:24 Passion Translation
Today was one of those hectic Mondays where I went totally off schedule – all because I decided to stay in bed for one extra hour. That snowballed into a manic Monday! I worked through lunch, and at one point was multitasking between my iPad, laptop and my iPhone. I also didn’t walk the dog. What was my excuse? “It snowed the night before, and it’s too cold and slippery out!”
I really think the one thing I got right today was reading todays scriptures while I was still in bed (I am being a bad role model here). Another was logging online to participate in my daily morning Mass surrounded by my devices. I had to mentally slap my hands a few times when I heard my iPhone ding with incoming text – “Ignore them” I said to myself. I had this mental image of me in front of God on judgement day – of my hands moving towards my tablet or iPhone. Oh Lord God, forgive me…my flesh is weak!
Partaking in the Eucharist is a daily must for me (virtually these days) – to let the Body and Blood of Jesus spiritually heal and grounded me for the rest of the day.
Alone my flesh is weak, and I thank God for His Grace and Gift of Faith.
Your love for me is something my mind cannot totally phantom
It’s depth and magnitude too much for this mere mortal to comprehend.
I imagine it to be as far reaching as the endless sky above me
As vast and deep as the universe that has no end.
I can only kneel before Thee.
Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me.my little prayer to God Almighty
