The Better Portion

By Sr. Nun Other

I had a plan for this morning. Rise early and get busy. I woke up at 4:30 to the sound of rain drops riding on a cool breeze, and like Mary (for once), chose the better portion. I listened to the rain’s unique music, and then drifted into a more peaceful sleep. There are moments in time prepared by God to bless us. In my agenda driven mind, I often miss or override their importance to the structure and balance of the day. I force my will, working hard and accomplishing little, because I’m out of sync with God. He sends love our way each day, when we’re open to receive it.
