Dearest Lord Jesus:
It seems more rains are coming today as I watched the rains last night amid dark skies with only a few stars above to accompany the moon. What a sight to behold as darkness enveloped us with the trickling of rains calming my soul while listening to St. Paul:
Brothers and sisters: none of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.Romans 14:7-8
Thank you very much Lord for your wonderful gift of self to us!
Indeed, you are the gift and the giver at the same time.
Thank you for making each of us a small universe, self-contained but not totally complete if separated from you and from others. May we always share this gift of self with others by keeping us one in you and with you.
You are our “deep space”, our “big bang”, always expanding, ever growing, bursting with life and meaning.
May we not be bothered like the Pharisees and scribes when people seek you more than us for we are mere stars leading them to you.
May we search and bring back to you the other dead stars and lost stars of this universe we call life. Amen.
