I am still riding on the high of being able to receive Holy Communion. It is like a cloak that has settled on me. It makes me warm and feel safe all at the same time.
This morning as I was praying the Rosary what I at first thought was a distraction turned in to such Grace!
I was just beginning the 3rd Glorious Mystery when the thought of my grandparents drifted across my mind. Then this ache started in my heart and spread throughout my chest and then there was a warmness and tears began to fill my eyes and then I could smell them both. Helen and John were there with me. I still am tearing up when I think of them.
They had such faith. My grandpa was gone much to soon from my physical life, but he has always been a guide for me. Someone that I turn to when in trouble. He has always comforted me. Grandma, what can I say? You who quietly professed your faith. You went to daily Mass and yes you took me with you even when I was not so excited about going. But you just kept on with praying your Rosary, attending daily Mass and being a witness to the grace of God.
So what I thought was a distraction turn into another Tender Mercy from my Beloved!
