Today I received an unexpected phone call from my nephew. He started by thanking us for his birthday wishes. From there, we talked about how relaxing vacation time was. He and his wife visited a little while ago and discovered they had an additional day, so they decided to spend it just enjoying the time alone together. We agreed that time away gives you a fresh outlook and perspective. He asked if I had been able to get back to church and we reminisced about the times spent doing VBS. He wondered if I would become more involved in the parish as he knew it meant so much to me. I remembered encouraging my nephew as he grew up and I was deeply touched that he was now encouraging me.
I Found God today in my encouraging nephew.
