I love this post more than anything else you've written. I have a friend, non catholic yet very religious, who has all but severed ties with some of her family members because she believes they aren't living their lives the way the bible says. (gay, divorced, promiscuous) She confides in me that she loves them but she can't support them because she doesn't believe they're going to heaven and doesn't want them around her children because of the way they live their lives... and then asks me if she's in the right. I always tell her it's God's place to judge right and wrong not ours. I have half a mind to forward this to her because its exactly what I try to tell her. Wonder if I'd be out of place. Hmm... Still. Love this post!

Mary, I've been to confession with this priest - at least I think it's the same one, because he always gives me similar wisdom. Telling me to sit in front of The Blessed Sacrament as long as it takes to feel the peace of God. (I don't think that there are enough hours in a week for that.) I think he's very wise - more than many people think.

I am glad your husband is listening and also seeking wise counsel and also desiring to be in a deeper relationship to God, and yourself too. It is a journey we all take at one point in our lives, and when we do, it is so worth it.

Alicia,

Thank you for your kind words.

Carmen, I agree.

I found that listening to God has brought me many answers. In fact, it has changed my life. I learned this concept of prayer from one of our sisters at Notre Dame. I forgot about it for years, but then it all came back to me. Lately, I have been taught many lessons by God. He works in mysterious ways, but now that I am listening, I get the message. Sometimes it takes a while, but fortunately, He is patient with me.

Well said Steph.
