a quote for the day

Sometimes thoughts, they roll in, from out of 'nowhere' which I think actually is not nowhere but somewhere, and for a very important purpose and reason. I just don't know why yet.

Today I am thinking about Mike Yaconelli. If you don't know about him, he is like a more Jesus-freak'ish version of Robert Fulghum. He died in October of 2003, and though I never met him, and only saw him speak once, I still hear him whisper in my ear from time to time.

Listen.

There are a whole lot of people who are so freakin' busy—they've so
cluttered up their lives—they're at their wits' end. And if they'd only
just stop for a minute, they could hear the God of the universe whisper
to them, "I love you."

  1. One thing I miss about Catholic Mass: during the breaking of the bread, the priest would say:
    “This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Happy are those who are called to his supper.”
    Then the congregation would reply:
    “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.”
    I was (and am) quite convinced that the God I know was saying “the word” all the time and all I had to do was learn to listen. I always prayed to listen better.
    Right on, Mike Y., right on!
