Few Days

This was the first time I can ever recall that during Holy Week I felt the loss of our Lord upon his death for our salvation, even though it is yearly enactment to commemorate his life and death. It was different this year for me, it was quiet and solemn filled with thoughts of the loss of life. A sorrow that is only felt when we loose a loved one. Yet he is ever present.

When I took my walk in the woods yesterday I stood for awhile with tears in my eyes looking in the distance and recalling the day when there was complete silence and the only sound was the music of the running water of the brook. Every time I go for that walk and pause and listen I hear the noise of the world, the cars on the road, trains passing through, planes flying overhead. Life being lived. The peacefulness is replaced by busyness. It is in this reflection that I am reminded of God's presence more than ever in my own life, and how much he has given. I will always remember that day and many others that have not been told, the graces and the sorrows in order to understand. God Bless you on this Easter day, for our Lord is Risen, Alleluia
