Everything is different

I woke up thinking that - thanking God for this new day, praying immediately for an online acquaintance who is most likely dying.  

Everything must change, expectations of how things must be, or should be must be allowed to crumble.  

O my God!  I thank you for Pope Francis who has overturned the tables of our idolatry and ideology.  He has lifted burdens too hard to carry and called down the Holy Spirit to stir up the love of God in the hearts of the faithful, though our sins impede the grace of mercy which so longs to save us - the Lord comes to our help with his mighty strength.

Thank you Lord.  Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything.


  1. Everyday does hold the possibility for everything to be different. It takes an open mind & heart to embrace this possibility. We fall back to the known for comfort. Change is uncomfortable & scary.

    1. Sorry I haven't been around - thanks for your comment. Looking forward to Christmas - hoping yours is a blessed one.

  2. When I was in the flower of my youth I never thought about life as I do now. I wake up now, sometimes thankful, sometimes in a state of anxiety or sadness. I ask for refuge at the foot of our Lord's cross grateful for another day, another opportunity for conversion.
    As 2022 draws to a close, I remain grateful though sad because many sad events have happened here at home. I remember you all and hope your Christmas will be filled with joy. Please remember my family and I in your prayers.
