Noticing God

Notice. This seems to be the word of the week. It keeps popping up in my mind. Over and over.
Wake up and take notice. Notice God's presence and action in my life.
Anthony de Mello was fond of saying that we need to wake up. We need to stop sleeping through our lives. Grace is always with us, but we are not always aware.
We are often sleeping. (read on at CatholicMom.com)

Colleen, this touched me so much that I had to share it on my blog.
Everything about it is absolutely beautiful.

Colleen,
This is so true. Your post reminded me of another of Merton's quotes: "...paradise is all around us, and we do not understand."
Thanks for sharing this again; it is definitely worth repeating.
