A Day Off?

Here are links to our readings for the day:

A Day Off?

With a Monday holiday waking up was disappointing to many people today. I mean, you did not have to work today. So, were you able to sleep in? How are you to get any rest if you do not sleep in occasionally? Maybe some of you even took work home just to do today. If you did, ok, but take some time to rest today. God gives us days like today to rest in His comfort. To rejuvenate, invigorate, and to teach us that He is present in our lives if we look for Him.

How do we find the Lord? The quickest way is when we offer comfort to others. Doing special, loving tasks that allow others to find a moment of rest in the Lord. Any number of things can be done. Cleaning dirty dishes, putting toys away, bringing a meal to a homebound person, getting their groceries for them, opening the door for others, saying thank you and please. The list goes on. The list grows longer as we learn to think of others first. If we put ourselves first there is no list. Think about it.

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
