As I close 2020, I want to end it in a prayer of thankfulness – to a year of rediscovery, re-appreciation, and reuniting. Thankful that it has given me the opportunity and time to rethink many aspects of my life. I am especially thankful for the time it has given me to draw closer to God. It has been a time for reflection and shedding away all the superfluous baggage I’ve carried with me and stand anew before my God. From the onset, I am thankful for the blessed help of Jesus in helping me carry my yoke, and let go of my fears.
Through His grace, I have a glimmer of what it means to love my children, husband, friends, my colleagues, my neighbors, and my community.
18 I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.Ephesians 3:18-19
Through His grace, I have journeyed home. I am thankful for His birth, death and redemption for a sinner like me.
In closing, I want to share this video by Father Chris Alar in answering what many have asked me since I have journeyed into the Catholic faith. Why is Mary the Mother of God?
May the Hand of God bless you all as you journey into 2021.
