Today's the day!

"Our Lord showed me a little thing, the size of a hazel-nut, on the palm of my hand...In this 'little thing' I saw three truths. The first is that God made it; the second that God loves it; and the third is that God sustains it..."
Julian of Norwich, "Showings 5" (as quoted in "Give Us This Day")
Ah, it's Monday morning. Here we go again.  It is so often necessary to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.  Otherwise, what is the point in any of it?  There is no point.  The only purpose of our lives is to love and be loved by God...and that is a fabulous purpose for which to get up and do it all again on a Monday morning!  This particular Monday holds such promise for us!  Today, we will be surprised by God! Today, we have a chance to show God our love and devotion by loving others!  Today, if we are reading this, we are alive!  (If we are dead reading this I have a larger distribution than I thought!) Anyway, let's look upon this autumn Monday as the best, most fabulous opportunity to love and be loved by God. Today is our day!  Love, heidi
