Just the Right Moment
“God is always coming to you in the Sacrament of the Present Moment. Meet and receive Him there with gratitude in that sacrament.” – Evelyn Underhill
I’m tired. Worn out from a busy schedule and a five day headache. Driving home alone from the company holiday party, another couples event. I get a call from my niece Emily to thank me for helping her last weekend with her paper – she got 48 out of 50 and has an “A” going into finals. She wondered about calling because she didn’t want to wake me up, but she was excited and called anyway. And at just the right moment, she told me I mattered when it mattered.
Make a call, send a text – tell someone they matter. You never know the blessing you can bestow when someone really needs it. God’s timing is never early, but always on time.
“It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.” – Eckhart Tolle
