R is for Reflection

I know, I already did one for today. But after a conversation with my husband, I remembered this blog-spark that I never got around to writing up, but that really seems to fit.

This is our usual Adoration set-up at church..


Jesus is in the middle, with two candles on either side. The candles are reflected in Him, and then the light is reflected back to each candle.

It reminds me a lot of what marriage is like, ideally. You have two people with God in the middle. A week ago, at our LifeTeen training conference for Europe, one of the presenters said that in his marriage, the closer he and his wife got to God, the closer they got to each other. Because it was his job to make sure his wife got to Heaven, and her job to make sure he got there too. Not in the sense that they had to drag each other kicking and screaming to church or anything, they were ‘just’ each other’s witness of God’s love, and how to lead a Godly, Catholic life. They’ve been married almost 25 years now, and so something must be working out right.

Like this…


But it’s true. My own marriage is so much stronger since we have both become Catholics because it is now rooted in God. I see God’s love for me in and through my husband’s love and caring for me. My husband has been there for me through the bad times, and hasn’t left me, even when it would’ve been easy to do so. Same goes for God. God loves me (and all people) even at our most unloveable. And always will.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
