Today, I praise the Lord for the partner in life he has given me. Living with My Dear Wife, while being committed to God's Will in our lives has been a treat. Journeying with her day by day, is like pealing back the layers of an onion. Sometimes there are tears, like an onion, though they are usually tears of joy, and like an onion there is sweetness as you approach the center.
I praise God for prayer partners, those I meet in the morning for the Divine Office, those I know from meeting over the years, and those I encounter through the internet, and have never met yet. Knowing that we are all one in Christ makes time and space disappear.
I praise God today for giving me the simplest prayer I know "Sacred Heart of Jesus I trust in your love for _____." This simple prayer allows me to put words to trusting that God is in charge, and that he has a plan for every difficult situation and person in our lives.
I praise God that My Dear Wife and I have been able to get outside to our gazebo in the warm sunshine the other day, enjoy a glass of wine together, have some tasty treats, and enjoy the birds and blooms as they show themselves this spring.
But, above all, I praise and thank Him because He is Him and I am not.
