A Gift

After being in such a down mood this week, today I was given a gift. Something I truly needed, yet did not ask for. I was able to go to lunch with my sister and 2 of her daughters (one of them turns 15 on Sunday). It was great to get out-without the kids (Andy was home). I am cherishing time with my sister and her girls-especially before her surgery on Monday, but that was not the gift in today.

After lunch, my sister needed to go home and rest (which is what she is supposed to do between now and the surgery). She asked me to take her daughters over to Confession. I have to say that this Sacrament was just what I needed. It hasn't been that long since I last went, but God knew what I needed. I feel so much better!

confession is so soothing to the soul and gives such peace of mind. I thank God for this sacrament everytime I receive it.

Hi Therese,
God knows the desires of your ♥ even before you say anything to Him. :)

Have a great weekend,

You are so right, confession can definitely make us lighter and fill us with God's grace.
I know you are heavy hearted about her surgery on Monday. It's ok. But you are not alone! Many are sharing your burden and praying right along with you. Wish I could be there for you. I'm there in spirit.

That sounds wonderful!! I'm glad to hear it after your rough week. It's those unexpected, but much needed, gifts that are all the more beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend!

I still need to get my butt in "the booth".
