A beautiful morning

{repost from 5/2021}

“O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are His judgments, and how unsearchable His ways! For who hath known the mind of the Lord Or who hath been His counsellor? Or who hath first given to Him, and recompense shall be made Him? For of Him, and by Him, and in Him, are all things: to Him be glory for ever. Amen.”
Rom. 11, 33-36. Epistle, Trinity Sunday

Goodness what a beautiful morning. Sweet dreams, puppy snuggles during Divine Office, hug from my curly haired mullet 9 year old, rockin’ Peleton run, Mass. I say it a thousand times but the little things are such big things.

Goodness, I love our little church. I just love going to Mass. I walk in and am transported out of this cold world into the warmth of the heavenly embrace. Transported to peace, to future promise, all of it steeped in glimpses between the lines of the liturgy.

I love that our priests are such shepherds. I love that they tag team Confession all morning (for hours, all morning) so that one is saying Mass and the other is in the Confessional. And that I had the chance to both acknowledge and be humbled in my nothingness and united to my Bridegroom, Body Blood Soul and Divinity, in the same hour, in the only place and time heaven touches earth.

I love that I sit in my little pew (usually front row) and watch my boys serve at the altar and I snuggle next to my girls and I am secure in my ark. The floods wage their war but nothing can touch me in there. OK, sometimes the droplets seep in, but I am still protected.

All dressed up because these are my new “date nights.” Veil covering my head because my life is meant to point to Him.

Always reminded He is Author, Creator…no one and nothing is His counselor…surely not me.

Happy Sunday, friends!
