I tried to live Christmas in the present moment inviting Jesus, who came into the messiness of our world over 2000 years ago, to come again into the messiness of my life, of my memories... to bring His peace, His healing, His hope...
The brightness of the sun on this gorgeous Spring day is nothing compared to the brightness of the Son shining through a person with a pure heart, whose smile and kindness radiates through the darkness of the world, giving a glimmer of hope to so many who lack it... Just being in the state of grace and not even saying a word, we carry the light of Christ in us to all we meet.
...I start the day with beautiful, faith-filled, positive reflections that can help me change my life one day at a time, which is less daunting than thinking of how far I still have to go to work through my defects and grow in holiness in the whole picture. I don't waste time (and get to morning Mass on time now :) ) and I am uplifted and given a healthy challenge for the day.
