I love to feel the ocean spray when the wind blows the water in the waves as it often does. Today at water exercise there was a breeze and the spray felt so good even if some were having to clutch their hats. I think we will probably have a storm before the day is over but the rain is what keeps Miami so green. All this has nothing to do with my reflection today on the need we have to be open to the Holy Spirit. We do not know what is pleasing to God in so many little things, but the Spirit nudges us in the right direction, if we are attentive. I am more and more convinced that the Spirit wants to give us whatever gifts and graces we need for the present moment if we just turn to listen to the presence of the Spirit in us.
Then we will feel the spray blown by the Spirit.
