"Health is the greatest of God's gifts, but we take it for granted, it hangs on a thread as fine as a spider's web and the smallest thing can make it snap, leaving the strongest of us helpless in an instant, and in that instant hope is our protector..."
This is a quote in the beginning of one of the episodes from Call the Midwife, my new favorite show on Netflix. It's such a sweet show that warms your heart and makes you think about the importance of kindness and awareness of others.
The quote just made me think twice about thanking God for my health and the health of my friends and families. I had a customer the other day who has been sick for years but in recent months has become much sicker and it made me so sad, I was more sad then she was/is to be honest. She has such a positive outlook on life and clings to hope and faith.
To me hope is faith, speaking of hope and faith did I tell you I am converting to Catholicism? It's been a decision on the forefront of my mind for years and I decided to go through with it this year. I attend class once a week from now until Easter Vigil. Last night we discussed faith and our instructor spoke of this simple but profound prayer "God, I believe, but help me with my disbelief." To me this prayer is the definition of faith, without doubt there can be no growth with faith.
I hope you could each take something from my rambling this morning. It's funny how certain things are put into place in our daily lives to trigger our souls. We just have to open our eyes and listen with our souls, I know I need to do this currently.
