One of the greatest events that just occurred in my life was yesterday the 9th day of November this 2017. My sister had asked me to take a dear friend to the eye doctor on the 10th. She also asked me if I minded giving her Communion as she had not been able to give it to her this week. Sure!!! So she dropped off the Precious Eucharistic Host in the Pyx that was held in a leather pouch with a strap that you could hang around your neck. When I came home and saw it waiting on the table---I became like a kid seeing CHRISTMAS packages all over the room---“It’s JESUS!!!” I grabbed up that leather pouch, kissed It and held it tightly, close to my heart! “I am going to carry You where ever I go until I am able to give Your Precious Body to our friend tomorrow.” As I walked out to the kitchen, a PEACE and JOY came over me so strongly! “Jesus is HERE!” that realization of what a special gift had been given to me, the joy bubbled out of me as I placed the pouch in my pocket so I could do dishes. It has been such a long time since I felt such a joy, and was so happy ---just like the song I had been teaching the group at school. “I got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart and I’m so happy so very happy I got the love Jesus in my heart today!” It was about this time here comes that Inner Voice---“if you believe that God is everywhere, that Jesus if always HERE—why aren’t you this excited and happy every moment of everyday—with His peace radiating from you?”
Yes indeed why was I so down of late? God had been hearing my prayers and had already been answering my plea for help to heal my heart, as old emotions were rising to the surface after starting the project of writing His Book. By setting up this very special event of bringing the Holy Eucharist into my home---the stage was being readied to give me the answers and the Wisdom needed to help keep the JOY of the Lord permanently set into my heart! For the rest of the evening, more insight came forward as my husband once more misplaced something and I had to stop and go help him find it. A very common event in our daily life, and oh the times I was angry for sometimes it took 20 to 30 minutes of searching and praying to find that lost item. Then there were other triggers to remind me of the areas that created dissension and resentment and, one by one, I knew what God was doing. Gifting me with ‘knowledge and understanding about why I was so unhappy. I hung on to that leather pouch and pyx, holding Sweet Jesus all night, even as I slept, it was in my hand. The next morning, as I went to my "We time" with God, because it was 11-10-2017, I opened my Missal to page 1110 and found this reading!! (Here dear woman is what you need to copy and paste permanently into your head and heart and actions too.)
From Phill 4 4-19 Joy and Peace. 4Rejoice* in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!c 5Your kindness* should be known to all. The Lord is near.d 6Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.e 7Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.f
NOTE THE FOLLOWING NECESSARY ACTIONS!!
8g Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.* 9Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me.h Then the God of peace will be with you.*
It ended with this verse---so necessary for me to truly remember as we walk further into relying on God for our material and financial needs to be met.
19My God will fully supply whatever you need, in accord with his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.m 20To our God and Father, glory forever and ever. Amen.n
