“Be happily and uncomplicatedly Catholic.”
Michael J Sheehan, Archbishop of Santa Fe
I agree with them:
– Joe Difato, publisher of The Word Among Us, wrote, “As you go through your day, you may not see God’s vision for your future. But his plan for you certainly includes aspects of what you are doing right now—and he wants you to be excited about it!”
That’s easy to answer. Just try to get to the bathroom with your eyes closed. After a few nervous steps, open your eyes and say, “WOW! I can see!” Touch your thumb to each finger (we humans are the only animals who can do that) and that’s five WOW!s. Wiggle your toes—ten WOW!s. I’m alive!—another WOW!
Expressing appreciation for a gift is a delightful way of saying. “Thank you.” Doing so is our Joyful Assignment for each morning. And everyone likes to be thanked, even He.
