Tonight as I read scripture and reflect, in my life I have done many things I am not proud of. Jesus says … “There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.” How embarrassing and humiliating it will be for me to make known to the world the darkness in my life. Somehow, I think I should be sad thinking about this but I am not. In fact, right or wrong, I am going to rejoice in the mercy of God and trust that He will lead me out of darkness through His mercy.
I have so much to be thankful for and give praise and glory to God. Tomorrow, I am blessed with picking up two of my beautiful grandchildren after work, to spend the weekend with me. I am scheduled to play Mass music on Saturday evening and oh yes, the Dodgers won tonight and made it to the NLCS to play against the Cubs. (I thought I would throw that in there since I grew up a Dodger fan and worked for them for 11 years.)
With all the negatives going on in this world, there is hope in the light of Jesus who tells us just how much we are loved … “Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.”
Thanks be to God!
