outside Vietnamese church

“My mates were ordained. They’re from Vietnam and after their Thanksgiving Mass, one invited me to attend the other ceremony they were having in Vietnamese, with the Vietnamese congregation. I was hesitant, barely knowing anyone else except them, but I went along anyway. When I got to the church, it was spilling out. People were sitting/standing outside as the sun went down. The entire Mass was in Vietnamese, but it really stuck out for me that in every language, ‘Amen’ is the same.”

one paddle two children

“Children inspire us with their simple way of solving a problem. Only one paddle and two nine-year-olds compelled them to find a peaceful solution or flounder. Such simple pleasures with my grandsons as they enjoyed the great outdoors. One daring, one cautious, each encouraging the other. Both in awe of God’s beautiful creation.”

“Where do I find God today? In spite of the squirrels eating all of the black oil sunflower seeds I fill the bird feeders with, there is that one seed that finds its way into a broken plant pot and blooms for all the world to see.”

Lighted Street

lighted street

“While doing our usual afternoon walk, a smoke of dust caught our attention. My daughter took a shot of a peeking light amidst the trees, fascinated by the rays as they reminded her of the Divine Mercy. When we enlarged the shot, we see the face of Jesus! What an awesome reminder that every day is extraordinary, because God is with us, anywhere, everywhere. We just need to be more receptive to His call. Our eyes, ears, and hearts must be open for the ‘God moments’ like this.”

Submitted by Agnes M. Mercado.
