I always love the First Fridays.
Here is a quote that appeared in our Oakwood Daily News: "Gratefulness is an extraordinary potent answer to many of our deep and far-reaching questions, inviting us to heed its invitation to live gratefully in the fullness of the moment that is here for us now."
I am trying to practice living in the present moment as I am seriously trying to remember to discern and be docile to the Holy Spirit. And that means being grateful - grateful for each moment of life, and very grateful for the daily graces showered on us.
I love the fact that Sister Be Mardel is now 103 years old and still so alert and spreading holiness around her.
I also ask prayers for all those for whom I have promised to pray for and all in need today.
