Amazing Monday

Wow!  Did we ever have a lot of rain yesterday.   And odd bits of rain too.   Sometimes the rain would be driving into the earth and the next moment the rain would be like a Scottish mist.  Even with all our rain yesterday,   the soil in our front gardens is 100% totally dry.    Just shows how much rain we do need for the crops this year.

Yesterday one of our former Army Cadets called to say he had been accepted into Royal Military College,  Kingston Ontario Canada.  This is an extreme honour as RMC has very high standards.   Congratulations Dustin!   Well done!    He starts his Basic Military Qualifications in September.  Although just like our Reservists,  he presently does not know where he will be going for his Basic Military Qualifications.  Odd that the BMQ Course would not be held at the Royal Military College but there we are.   

Monday retreat.....
Prayer:   Open my eyes to Your word this day O Lord.  Open my heart to Your work this day O Lord.   Open my soul to Your Holy Spirit this day O Lord.  This I ask in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Read:  St. Matthew 13: 24 – 30

Jesus tells another parable about seeds and weeds.   God’s kingdom is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field but while his hired men were asleep,  his enemy sows weeds.   The good seed and the weeds grow up together.     Jesus tells the disciples that in all Churches,  there are good people and not so good people but it is only in the final day of judgment will God discern which are the good people and which are the not so good people.  It is not the disciples’  nor our task to discern who is good and who is not good.   It is the Churches responsibility to sow the Good News of God and to let the Word of God get sewn where it may.

Prayer:  Great God,  move through every part of my body and mind, dissolving all feelings,  thoughts,  and patterns of frustration, irritation, and aggravation.  Please sweep away all impatience,  struggle, and suffering that resides in my consciousness.  Allow me to turn my frustration into inspiration and enthusiasm.  Guide me in the direction where my actions will become actualized and help spread the Word of God this day.   Thank you God!  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
 Many blessings!
