Quickie Quote: falling in love …(with God!)

Here’s a quickie quote on this Lenten Thursday for mind munching & heart scrunching…

“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, in falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.  It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. 

Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”  

attributed to Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Grand Canyon sunsetThis is a favorite quote… & so appropriate to contemplate not just during Lent but the whole year through. Kinda challenging, but hey, isn’t that what love does?  challenge us? Especially Love with a capital “L” – the kind God has for us. The kind God IS… & the kind God can BE is us & through us…

grace, peace & LOVE*

      SHERE!! Thank you so much for your comment & encouragement … yes, i do like this pic. ‘Tis an example of ‘waiting’ for s.th… Dwight & i had already spent an hour on an outlook for the ‘sundowner’ at the Grand Canyon… but a few mins after the lovely ‘show’ — the sky lit up like this… & i quickly reassembled the camera for a few quickie shots before the beauty faded all too fast! So amazing…
