Ready or. . .

Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our Lord may wish to work in you. It is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one.
Saint Ignatius

Not quite yet. . . or so it seems. . .

A premature sign offers a tiny glimpse of what will soon be.
Some of us are ready–
Some of us are not.
A day will come, maybe sooner, maybe later. . .
there’s no way to tell exactly, when we’ll have to be ready.
You’re either ready or you’re not.
It’s really a matter of choice. . .or not.

For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.
Matthew 24:44

    Nice julie. Some will be ready. Some not. You sure hit the important thing. We choose. And sometimes we choose by not choosing.

    Amen!

    I like Saint Ignatius’ phrase “to be able to enjoy the Lord”! How many of us truly “enjoy” the Lord? What a joy and privilege to rest in the Lord and be at peace. Thanks for this reflection Julie.

  4. Beautiful, my friend. You always drive right into the heart of the matter and with the simplest of “hooks.” Amazing. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤
