Reflection for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary time…July 24, 2022

Planning and “God Willing”

Planning is an integral part of our lives, day in and day out.  From the moment we awake to lying in bed at night to review plans for tomorrow.

I was reminded of an old joke about “when I make plans, God laughs.”

Our world was seriously made aware of how quickly and life threatening life could be as COVID arrived and has drastically changed our lives today.

God’s Love

God is all around us and must be included in all the decisions and choices we make, “God willing”.

We pray each day for safety, health, jobs, financial stability—no different than the people in the time of Jesus.

We are deeply loved by God who is very willing to be a part of our lives, deeply and lovingly—I must remember that I do need to include Him—every day in every area of my life.
