Stay awake!

"Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come."

Matthew 24:42

There are so many ways to look at this scripture! We need to stay awake to see Jesus in our midst...the person in line ahead of us...the person beside us on the bus...the person needing an invitation to our dinner table. Another way of looking at it is that we just don't know on what day Jesus will come to take us Home. I think of my cousin Steve, who went to mass one Sunday morning and collapsed on his front porch after he got home. He probably didn't know Jesus would come for him that day in particular. But Jesus did. Our Lord comes to us in many ways, in many disguises. Our Lord will ultimately come for us to take us Home. We don't know when, but that is OK. Not knowing when keeps us on our toes--on the lookout for Jesus in our day. We don't know the day or the hour, but it could be any day, any hour. Let's live today expecting to see Jesus around every corner! Love, heidi
