Whew, I miss my family today!
It's strange business being away from home on such a great day.
Buttttttt to "grow where I'm planted"...
I invited some school friends to church with me this morning and we had a big lunch at my friend Eleanor's house afterwards.
So even if I did miss my mom a lot, at least she gave me her macaroni and cheese recipe to make. :)
Now I have to get back to work.
My final memo is do at noon tomorrow!
I keep scrutinizing over every detail because well...it's my only grade in my writing class.
(Y'all getting the pattern yet?)
I'll leave ya with this:
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for becoming a human being
so I do not have to pretend or try to be God.
I thank you, Lord Jesus, for becoming finite and limited
so I do not have to pretend that I am infinite and limitless.
I thank you, crucified God, for becoming mortal
so I do not have to try to make myself immortal.
I thank you, Lord Jesus, for becoming inferior
so I do not have to pretend that I am superior to anyone.
I thank you for being crucified outside the walls,
for being expelled and excluded like the sinners and outcasts,
so you can meet me where I feel that I am,
always outside the walls of worthiness.
- Fr. Richard Rohr
Oh, and this:
Can I get an amen?
How great He is-
