We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest.
– Oscar Romero
What a great truth. I think the same sentiment was also shared by Dory in Finding Nemo: “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” Amen to that! We can only do so much on a given day.
I’ve also been pondering this prayer lately:
It’s one thing to read it, it’s quite another to LIVE it! I’ll be the first to admit, I’m el-stinkaroo at truly interiorizing and obeying those words…but I am trying. I’m hoping that with school being out and a more casual pace, it will be some holy help in walking through each day. I love the part of the prayer that talks about taking “minute vacations”- and I may have mastered that mentally (ha ha) but not yet spiritually.
We recently added a new song to our playlist at 95.5 The Fish called “Worn.” It’s by Tenth Avenue North and I wanted to share it with you. For the tired, tattered, weary and…worn. God bless you.
