Hello Readers!

I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2011 and that this year will be a blessed one for all of you.  Today’s readings are a great reminder for me that sometimes I just need to take a minute to breathe and be thankful for everything God has given me. 

Sometimes it is hard for me to remember that everything that happens happens for a reason, and that reason (while oftentimes unknown to me) is God’s plan, and it always works out in the end.  In today’s Gospel, Jesus wants his apostles to come and rest, because they have done good work.  However, when Jesus sees all the people who are waiting, he feels pity and becomes their shepherd.  This is comforting to me, because I know whenever I am lost, God will make the path clear for me.  While this might sometimes not seem like the path that I want, it always turns out the way it should in the end, and this means that I don’t have to worry every second of every day about where the path of my life is taking me.  So let us take a minute, relax, and admire the beauty of what God has sent into our lives.
