Advent Wednesday Witness: Fran

  • December 4, 2013

Fran GardellaWhat wakes me up to God’s presence? Morning sunlight reminds me that a new day is beginning and God will guide me through it if I ask for help. Welcoming a new baby into our family lets me know that God wants and loves people in his world. Caring hugs, loving words, shared laughter or tears tell me God is close by embracing me, too. Readings like the 23rd Psalm, beautiful music and thoughtful prayers are God’s special messages. A gorgeous sunset or bright moonlight shining on a snowy backyard, revealing one small rabbit, are signs that God ends my day offering peaceful rest and will watch over all of His creations throughout the night.  God is ever present.

What wakes you up to God’s presence?
