Busy Person's Retreat - Day Two

Good Morning again.

This morning I met individually with my spiritual companion, Sister C.  We started with prayer and a few moments of silence.  I caught her up with my life and all its fascinating (or lack there of) happenings.

We talked about choices and choosing to be clueless to God's plan for me.  We talked a little about God's plan for me.  We talked about trust.  Somehow, we talked about my dissertation.  I have a sinking suspicion God would like me to work on it and finish it...

My assignment:  Isaiah 43:1-4

We ended with Namaste

“Nothing is more practical than finding God,

 that is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final way. 

What you are in love with, 

what seizes your imagination 

will affect everything.

 It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, 

what you will do with your evenings, 

how you spend your weekends

, what you read, 

who you know, 

what breaks your heart,

 and what amazes you 

with joy and gratitude. 

Fall in love,

 stay in love, 

and it will decide everything.”

-Pedro Arrupe SJ
