Often times we hear that money is the root of all evil. The bible states that it is the LOVE of money that is at that root. I don’t think anyone can argue with that. However…as I was folding clothes this morning (some of my greatest revelations come to me while doing housework), I thought of how much I love money. Let me explain. Last year, my husband and I started a St. Vincent de Paul conference in our parish. The purpose of this society is to help the poor; the material poor, emotional poor and the spiritual poor. Today, thanks to donations to our parish poor box, I was able to write a check to the landlord of a man who was on the verge of eviction. It was at that moment I realized that this would not have been possible without money, and how much I loved having that money in our conference account! My faith tells me to seek the face of Christ in everyone I meet. Everyday, I ask God for the ability to do that, ’cause some days it ain’t easy! Well, today I saw the face of Christ in money…the money that possessed the generosity and good will of the donor. How wonderful! Imagine if we could live our lives this way? Finding God in the good, the not so good and the unexpected.
I am off to find God in my dust bunnies.
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter, and a spring brimming with hope and blessings!
Peace to all.
