Hearing Mom’s “voice”

No date, but this sounds like my mother talking

O God, we often wish Life were not such a Mystery. It would be much easier to live if we knew what Life is all about. This is why we often substitute our Answers for your Mystery. It makes life easier that way!

Yet, we know our Answers often destroy your Mystery.

  • We sometimes analyze rather than experience. 
  • We often suspect rather than trust.
  • We even hold back rather than give.
  • We wait to be loved rather than to love.

God, help us trust the Mystery of Living. Help us Lord to allow ourselves to be close to You and one another. Help us to stand away from our constant problem-solving and let your Mystery be a vital part of our lives.  Amen

Mom wrote this definitely. One, she loved to type.  Two, she used paper others would think was scrap…this is computer paper, I forget the proper name and if I go look it up now, the rabbit trail will make me late for work.

Today, I will trust the Mystery of Living. As I peer around the corner of each unknown minute.
