In His Will is our Peace!

So, let me explain. I've been super busy this week.

We had a Lock-IN for our teen missionaries on Friday. And we abstained from food for 24 hours (Breakfast to Breakfast). This was during. But, we still had a lot of fun. I introduced them to King Sardines - thats a game for those who are not familiar. And, now we're solidified more so.

And, I've been busy doing Confirmation Mass preparation. I have one Lector. I have to call everyone else this week.

And, big news. I am going on a cruise! Hurrah! My mom's birthday present to me. Me and a friend - AR. Yay! I am so excited.

Oh, and my passport arrived in the mail last week. I am ready to travel all over the world.

AND, my favorite Liturgical Season is coming up - LENT. I love love love Lent! The giving up, the doing, the changing, the smells, the sights. Growing closer to Christ!

This Sunday's Gospel (Mark 2:1-12) - 4 friends lowering the paralytic into the house. When Jesus told the man to Rise, and Get Up. There was no pause, no questions, no doubt; HE got up and walked out! What faith. I only pray that when Christ calls me out I will do as He asks without hesitation! For in His will is our peace.

had to add this (just found it on a blog):

"Are we prepared to say yes to His will without counting the cost? [....] Do not be afraid of Christ. He takes nothing away and gives you everything." -- Cardinal Justin Rigali at the MFL 2009

Yes, He gives us EVERYTHING!!

Your cruise sounds marvelous. Have you considered keeping a log/photojournal, "God is everywhere, even on my cruise".
You could note ways in which you experienced His Presence on the Cruise. This might be especially helpful for your teens, who experience so much in today's world.
