Be Here Now

October 23rd, 2012 | Posted by Sr. Marilyn Marie in Uncategorized

Perhaps you also know what it’s like to have one of those “you don’t want to miss this” messages from God.  As I was driving in for an early morning meeting this morning, I stopped at a stoplight on Secor Road.  My mind, of course, was racing through the day’s agenda, what I didn’t have finished yet, and what would need to happen today. I glanced up at one of the electronic billboards to see, in large red letters, “BE HERE NOW.”  I had just come from reflecting on today’s Gospel reading in which Jesus advises the apostles to be prepared at all times for the Master’s return. 

In a world in which we pride ourselves on multi-tasking, I needed a reminder to slow down, breathe, and live in the present moment. On my arrival, I took the time to stop and talk with our receptionist instead of running by, I’m enjoying the flavored creamer in my coffee, I noticed the new buds on my cactus plant. God knew I needed a gentle obvious reminder!

Enjoy each minute of your day today!
