Careful what you pray for--you may get it!

"Conversion happens most often in a slow, deliberate, and mysterious way, like a tree changing colors in the fall. And often you can't see the change in yourself."
Fr. James Martin, SJ, "Jesus: A Pilgrimage"
One thing I've noticed lately, is that, if you ask God to change something about you, be prepared to be changed!  It is often a deliberate and mysterious change, sure enough, but there are times it can happen quickly.  It's as if God is so excited that we are recognizing the need for help to change that God can't wait to begin! God never forces us to change but instead waits for us to see, ourselves, the need to grow.  And God delights in the humility it takes to see that.  Our God is a God of surprises and sometimes we are surprised how quickly we see God's hand shaping us, like clay in the loving hands of the Potter. Today, we rejoice in the beginning of the women's Cursillo, here in Idaho Falls!  Let us pray for all involved throughout the weekend...Love, heidi
