Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated....
No, I'm not dead. At least not literally. It seems that when life, real life, gets busy and overwhelming, the first thing I let go is my writing. Isn't that unfortunate, for the both of us?
The boys will be returning to school tomorrow (I honestly can't believe I ever managed to home school!) Then perhaps I'll make, or take if I must, the time to write again!
For now, a brief thought about the feast we celebrate today: Divine Mercy.
Aren't you supremely thankful that God FORGETS all our transgressions?
Aren't you amazed that he shows us MERCY when we least deserve it?
Aren't you blown away with the thought that Jesus is waiting, eagerly, to BLESS us when we run to Him?
There's one catch.
He asks us to show mercy to our neighbor. You know the one, the guy who's harmed you, the one you can't forgive.
A thought: pray for that person today, the one you simply can't forgive. Forgive him with your will. Show him the mercy he doesn't deserve.
And bask in the mercy that is yours for the taking.
