Lent ……. Day Twenty-Nine

Lent ……. Day Twenty-Nine

“I’ve your heart, your adored Face, Your sweet look that has wounded me.  I’ve the kiss of your sacred mouth, I love you and want nothing more, Jesus.” (“The Canticle of Celine” in The Poetry of St. Therese, 102)
St. Therese of Lisieux

Psalm 145:  8  The Lord is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
    and his compassion is over all that he has made.

Did your favorite Aunt or Grandma ever give you the biggest, hardest, most sufficating hug, ever?   Or maybe she pinched your cheek so hard that it was red for a week.   Sometimes love hurts.   When we feel sufficated by our own demise we need to remember that God is there and that He will sufficate us with His love.   I love the fog because it a visual reminder of how God surrounds us with is mercy, grace and love.   The big difference is that we can show others Gods love for us and for them through our daily actions and we don’t  have to pinch them on the cheek!
