God In All Things

Red Wine and Fish

So what if I want white wine with beef or red with chicken? Our culture tries to conform to the expectations and the “supposed-to’s” of the status quo. Are we trying to be something we’re not?

Perfection

Perfection personified is careful but not cautious. She burned her hands too many times before she learned to pay attention. She discovered that her greatest strengths grew out of her strongest weaknesses. Just like St Paul says: “Whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”

A Song and A Smell

Songs and smells are two of the most powerful recallers of memories. Praying with them lets God into the intimate details of your life. Perhaps those magic “sensual” moments are a way of God revealing something special to you.

A Childlike Pause

The other day at a pond by my house I saw a boy who stopped suddenly to look at the sailboats. Nothing special about them, except the boy was experiencing a moment of God’s presence in beauty.
