Feeling Close to God...Yet somewhat alone
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
I have an active prayer life and feel very close to God. Yet there are moments when I feel alone. It is that time alone that gives me time to meditate and reflect. While there are not many people with me at times, there are a host that I can reach out to.
I need to count my blessings, my friends, church family, family, and all those who wish me well. I have several new friends over the last 7 years who have become family.
I reread some Henri Nouwen. I also made plans to visit a mother and daughter in my parish. I want to share communion with them. Today I wrote a prayer for them and attempted to include some of our liturgy from Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. I want the communion to be about Jesus and the promise of hope. With God all things are possible!
I need to write that again...With God all things are possible...my surgery, my care, my husband's caregiving, and so much more. Love and peace make all the difference.
