While reading the first reading for today’s liturgy (2 Peter 1: 2-7), I was struck once again by the generosity and extravagant love of God.  Peter begins his letter saying, “May you have more and more grace and peace as you come to know our Lord more and more. By his divine power, he has given us all the things that we need for life…”

I find this message particularly encouraging as I embark on a new week.  As I look at my calendar and note the various meetings, events and travel, I am reassured that I will have all that I need. Even more reassuring is knowing that I will have all I need for the many encounters I don’t know about yet!  It’s almost as though God is saying “Don’t worry. I’ve got your back!”

Mary knew the peace that comes from this promise as well.  It was this that enabled her to pray “God has done great things for me. Holy is his name!”

What lies ahead of you this week that God will be taking care of?

    God and Mary have both been watching over our wonderful daughter Mary Carol for 21 years (this Friday). Rearing children is a journey in faith which is life long!

    I am in the midst of my travels in a month of having no address. Exciting … freeing … scary … a whole mix of feelings here! God is with me on the journey and is delighting me with all the little things one can see when traveling, and with connections with friends. Next I head north to give a retreat … God will be taking care of the details for sure! What a great God we have!
