A Letter To Myself When I'm Home Alone

This is one of those rare moments you find yourself at home, alone. 

You probably can't remember the last time this happened. 

In the silence your mind is going to begin to race, trying to decide what to tackle first.  

But JUST STOP  for one moment and listen to me. 

You will look around and notice many unfinished projects. Ignore them.

Baskets of laundry. Don't fold them.

A counter piled with dishes. Don't do them. 

Toys and shoes strewn all over the floor. Ignore those too. 

Don't worry about any of these things. They will get done eventually. 

They don't need to be done this very minute.

In fact, you need to learn to be ok with things being un-done.

Right now there's only one thing you need to do: 

Make yourself a cup of coffee. 

Then sit down and drink it, the whole thing, from start to finish, without being interrupted. 



Be still and be quiet.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.

Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.


keep in touch!
