I think LOVE might be my theme for this year..... Today's first reading from Isaiah 54 really touched me, especially the parts about God being the ONE God, and the ending:
Though the mountains leave their place
and the hills be shaken,
My love shall never leave you,
nor my covenant of peace be shaken,
says the LORD, who has mercy on you.
God has love bigger and more permanent than mountains and hills. All I can do to respond is love in my little way, like a pebble by comparison. God's love embraces me so completely, my little love is no longer small.
