As some of my readers already know I have been off from working the blog for awhile now. Also, my trusted intern Jenny has her hands full at home and hasn’t been posting or Tweeting either.
Well, first, I am doing much better and was scheduled to come back this past weekend on Saturday. My Confessor came to see me and ordered me to continue my”rest” for a few more days. His order was for a few days of spiritual rest, devoted to things of the soul. Good advice.
I now feel whole with a fresh eye on what is considered my “work”, here at the blog. I learned the being “Always Catholic” means more than formal prayer, spending my day’s fighting for the cause and hoping to be humble enough to share the Gospel. I have truly learned that OBEDIENCE is first in the eyes of God, Our Father. Yes, folks, the “O” word…the “O” word that most of us consider more risqué than the other “o” word. (Sorry, trying to make a point here!)
Look, it was easy for me to be Obedient when my physical body was falling apart (well, not that easy, hah!) but to be Obedient when my Confessor felt that my soul needed that extra “oomph”? Not THAT’S tough…
Well, I did it. I made it through Tuesday and Wednesday waits with open arms. Back to the blog and to all of you whom I love so much. Jenny’s back on Friday when her family’s explosion of Chicken Pox should be cleared up. Yeah, dear Jenny was catching the Sofia workaholic nonsense and Our Lord smiled and thought it was time for her to slow down. Interesting twist: Jenny isn’t down with the Chicken Pox, she’s helping her mom care for 6 of her 8 siblings! Now, THAT’S even a tougher obedience!
Now as I finish this up this evening, I wanted to share the best part of my return to work. So many of you (probably all of you!) have been praying for my health. Well, your prayers were answered.
When my Doctor came in to let me know how well my echocardiogram looked, he turned to me, smiled and said “Prayers work!”
No kidding, Doc.
Great to be back, let’s do this thing!
