My mom and I started praying a Novena today in preparation for the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is on September 8. Today’s intentions were for marriages and families. I thought specifically about the recent blessings, struggles, illnesses, and causes for celebration. I remembered that God is in them all. Each occasion involves movement like a beautiful dance bringing people and places in and out of our lives. When you look at these events through the eyes of faith, you can see God more clearly. And we are given the opportunity to grow closer to God through them, or further away. My prayer especially for my family is to allow life’s situations to be a step closer to God.
I Found God today realizing God’s presence in every situation in our family.
