A lot has happened since I last wrote. Not only am I excited for the doors God has opened, I feel God says to me, "You haven't seen anything yet." I cannot imagine what Jesus has in store for me, but I know that is full of LOVE. I feel as though I could burst at the seems with joy (partly due to Advent and Christmas coming up!), and I know that there is more to come.
How can one be so full of JOY, and know that this can't even compare to what awaits us for eternity? For, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Corin. 2:9) It is truly incomprehensible.
So, Advent. I feel as though this Christmas is different somehow. I feel more alive and closer to Jesus than ever, and I have continued to pray to understand deeper the spirit and mystery of Christmas and Jesus coming to us as a little child. So far, as previously stated, I have learned of JOY! But there is still much more to take in.
I am headed for a vocational retreat with a wonderful group of Sisters this weekend. I am praying to stay open and quiet in spirit, listening to hear Jesus's voice. Please, all who read this, say a Hail Mary for me, or any prayer. Know that I am praying for all of you.
Much Peace and JOY! to all of you in this beautiful preparation for Christ's coming.
~One in love with Christ
P.S. JOY is contagious. Spread some around!
