Just Show Up 365 (Day 103) The fog has lifted…
…and the sun is shining upon the Deitz household once again! Neal came back to me this morning…no he never left…but I could feel that his spirit was once again light and that the hold the steroids had on him was now dissipating. He had two important meetings today and he asked that I pray for him before he left. I said a rosary specifically for the intentions I knew he was facing and when we ended up speaking later in the day he said he felt the Holy Spirit with him giving him the strength and courage he needed. He is positive and pleasant to be with once again.
It is interesting how the mood of your husband can affect the mood of your day. I feel like I’m back too. I’m ready to get moving with what I need to do to promote EXPOSED and make sure the message gets out there to whomever He is trying to reach and I’m very excited to start a new session of Catholics Returning Home tonight! It didn’t even get me down when I spoke on two separate occasions today with people that are struggling on their journey and harbor a hint of disdain when speaking about faith or what living a life by His will might entail. Usually when I come across these deep, honest and telling conversations they are draining and leave me flustered because I wish I could just make them see. But I know it is not up to me. It is between them and God. Today, however, coming fresh into a full resurrected joy I wasn’t plagued by the frustration. Instead, I am at peace knowing that in His time they too will not feel so weighted down.
I’m off to a new adventure of meeting who knows how many strangers that have answered a call within to at least explore what their faith, specifically their Catholic faith, means to them. I love this!!!
