This Moment in Time // #1


Don't we all wish, as we go through life, we could capture and somehow keep in our minds all of the little moments that make us happy?  I'm going to make the effort and do a sense.  Readers, welcome to the new post series This Moment in Time.  

I'll post this new series at random...whenever there's a moment that I want to capture and record.... merely writing down what I'm doing, what I'm thinking about.....just something that I don't want to forget.

Here's the first moment in time that I want record.

What I'm doing:  I just got home from work and am just finishing up baking these muffins.  Delicious!

What I'm listening to:  the Road to Avonlea soundtrack, thanks to Spotify.  I love that tv series and highly recommend it, especially to any Anne of Green Gables fans.

What I'm (or was) thinking about:  How purely beautiful the Eucharist is.  Jesus Christ, our Lord and God, truly Present in the Small Host.  Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.  How our own souls can be a resting place, made holy by the Presence of Jesus.....the Tabernacle of our Souls........a place that becomes beautiful because of the complete Presence of Beauty Itself:  Jesus Christ.

How can words describe this beautiful union between Our Holy, Perfect God and our own humble, little souls?  They cannot.  Words fall so dreadfully short, it's nearly shameful.  With such a thought, a soul can only bow its head and let the Divine Presence speak of this joyful mystery.

My one hope is that I may be given the grace of truly loving this Mighty, Holy God, sitting on the Mighty Throne of Heaven, to the fullness of my being.  This is my one hope.

If I loved This Holy Trinity to the fullness of my being, that means that I would desire never to offend Him through sin, struggling with the greatest joy to overcome vices and attain virtue.  If I loved This Divine, Holiest of Holy Hearts, I would never wish to move my gaze from the end that I so hope for: a place at the foot of the Mighty Throne of the Blessed, Holy Trinity in Heaven.  

I am so grateful that God gave me life!  I'm so grateful that He has deigned to give me this opportunity to love Him in a way only I can.  That is the wonderful thing I've come to realize (partially with the help of different sources) about each individual soul God creates.  That is: each soul expresses their love and adoration for God in a completely unique and different way.  No-one can copy your own expression of love and adoration and no-one can take your place.  How beautiful is that?!  Perhaps you already knew that, but I sure didn't.  Wow!

Please pray for all those who do not believe in our Holy God!

In the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
