May God the Father bless you, God the Son heal you, God the Holy Spirit companion you. May God the holy and undivided Trinity guard your body, save your soul, and in the fullness of time bring you to that heavenly country where safely we will enjoy God and one another forever.
Time you enjoy wasting isn’t wasted time.
…living out of the center has taught me that every failure succeeds in some way. It provides the opportunity not only to humble the self, but also to be with the failure of others. If your life or mine were an untarnished success story, an unbroken upward spiral toward holiness, we might never come to understand the human heart.
I think of this often at work. It is a bittersweet realization that I find both internally comforting as well as inauthentically disturbing.
