The first Friday of each month is Eucharistic Adoration at our church. Today, my mom came over to sit with the kids so I could go. I always begin by thanking God for my husband and each of my kids. I usually ask for guidance as a wife and mother. Then, I sit back and simply listen. Often times I will bring my Bible and other reading materials, but today, I just wanted to open my heart to hear what God was telling me. I didn't walk away with any clear message, but I was moved by the experience. I cried and didn't really know why. As I left the church, I felt very much at peace. I believe that God knew what I needed and gifted me with it. I am thankful for the opportunity to spend this time with the Lord. It gives me strength and clarity to live the life I believed I was called to live. I've said it before and I'll say it again. . .I am blessed!
