I couldn’t sleep last night. I was tired, but I started thinking…
Gaston: LeFou, I’m afraid I’ve been thinking…
LeFou: A dangerous pastime.
Gaston: I know!
(Name that movie!)
Sorry..came to my head. Any-whays. I have no idea what started it, but I began thinking about where I am and where I have been and some of the mistakes that I’ve made in my past. And then began to go back through in my mind to where I first started down that road..what could I have done differently? What would I have said/done instead?
And then once I started down that road I was up for AWHILE, recounting things and “making them better” in my head.
But that brought me to the present. Being married to my wonderful husband in our home with our dog in IOWA. And I regret nothing. I wouldn’t have changed a thing because that is what God used to bring me to THIS point.
Prayer from St. Therese of Lisieux:
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow you soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
What keeps you awake at night?
