Lately I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on how much has changed about me mentally, spiritually, and physically. I did some growing up on my own, grew so much deeper in the faith and with my relationship with God, and gained weight – HAPPY weight…which I intend to lose eventually. I gave my room a makeover in the beginning of summer. I was taken to the hospital twice: once in Florence and the 2nd time around at home. Had surgery for the first time ever. Had my heart broken when my brother was sent to the hospital a week after me. Watched him get married a few days after. Daily Mass became a non-negotiable. Grew apart from some people. Grew closer to others. I’ve been reading a lot more books than the usual. I’ve met some of the most inspiring people ever. I witnessed God move through the leaders of our nation and am still being constantly reminded by the Lord about how crucial the Eucharist is/should be in our lives.
This may already seem a bit lengthy but there’s so much more that went on with my life within these past seven months. And most of them, if not all, I didn’t see coming. Ever since my last entry, I’ve really been trying to put together a blog. In fact, I’ve jotted down several topics I wanted to write about but it didn’t come through for some reason. After reflecting about the things that happened this past year, I didn’t want all of these thoughts to go to waste. Writing this was more of a reminder to myself about how GLORIOUS God has been to me…and the year isn’t even over yet! What happened so far this year were simple affirmations of how my life can be so wonderful if I keep on allowing God’s will to be done. I’m happy because God is so faithful! He’s always been and always will be. Siiiiigh.
Make your heart as happy as mine and listen to this song =)
“If indeed what I am saying is true,
and this is what the Church says,
then our hearts need to start burning
with a deeper understanding of who and what
this Eucharist is.”
TRUUUUUE! More to come of this…
