The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and
the love of God and
the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with all of us. Amen
2 Corinthians 13:13
Seasons change… Easter has concluded and ordinary time in scripture is upon us through the summer and into the fall. The ordinary activities of life, family and work can become dull and mundane leaving our hearts open to grace of God or the thrill of foolishness. Do not let the dullness of life’s chores leads us away from the true meaning of our life. God is present to us in our ordinary, sometimes tedious activities; driving to work, smiling at a stranger, preparing dinner, doing a hard days work, washing clothes, mowing the lawn, paying the bills, caring for the sick and parenting our children. Each of these moments can be moments of grace, expressions of love and fellowship for our families and honoring each day as a gift from God. It is the presence of Christ that empowers us to faithfully do what is right. It is the love of God that pours out of us so that we may serve joyfully. It is the companionship of the Holy Spirit that inspires, encourages and strengthens us every moment of every day. When we embrace every activity, no matter how ordinary or mundane, with faith, hope and love, we can be sure that the extraordinary grace of Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit are with us. May our life be the fulfillment of God’s Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Dear Jesus, may I seek you as my salvation, my eternal companion and the love of my life so that I may live forever in your peace.
