Looking Forward, Looking Back
Yesterday was my last day at my job. We are moving to a new state and I will be starting a new job in September. It is a better paying job in a nice place and my husband will be in a very good school this fall. I am so thankful for all of the blessings we have received this past year and I know my prayers, one after another, have been answered. It is amazing how I used to be so cynical and felt that life was either only a product of chance, or destined to be miserable. I used to have a very deep seated notion that I didn't deserve good things in life and if things were going well, it was simply too good to be true. These are self fulfilling prophecies, if you expect everything to go poorly in life, chances are things will. I am so grateful to have found the power in hope and joy in my life. Hope and joy awakened in me by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is as if, in opening my heart to God and what the Church teaches, a garden has begun blooming in my soul. Thanks be to God!
