Miracles

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

psalms for passiontide: Maundy Thursday Psalm 116.1,10-17

(This beautiful reflection was written by my friend Kate, and I am reblogging it because it gives me hope that I too can use my chronic illness experience to offer myself to God.)

As I write this I am at present without a voice due to a virus I picked up several weeks ago.  My throat is my weak spot and a barometer to the state…

Lay Me Down to Sleep

We had to put our beloved 15 year-old cocker spaniel Fiona down last Wednesday, and our hearts are broken. She was my darling baby girl and the light of my days. The house is so empty now.

We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. (Irving Townsend)

Good Friday

The person to whom we pray, the man we hope to follow, the one who is risen from the dead, understands us–because he lived a human life, and one that, particularly in his final week, was filled with suffering.

Of course, this is hardly a new insight. The Letter to the Hebrews says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.” (Fr. James Martin, SJ)

A Monday Moment

Here’s a thought to put Monday into perspective 🙂

Something precious is lost if we rush headlong into the details of life without pausing for a moment to pay homage to the mystery of life and another day.
