SATURDAY OF THE THIRTY-SECOND WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME
-from the book Wandering and Welcome: Meditations for Finding Peace by Joseph Grant
If this were your last day, hour, minute, or breath, imagine how you might drink in the daylight, taste the twilight, touch the stars, smell the sunshine, delight at songbirds, listen to the look of your loved ones, bow before the sanctity of a stranger, be carried away with astonishment, and be beside yourself with awe at the wonder of it all. Perhaps we engage life in its fullness when we stop asking if we are there yet and live into the unfolding and radical realization that we are always already here. For it is only here that we can really be, wholly present and fully engaged; and no matter where you go, there you are.
