The Baptism of the LordJanuary 10, 2015
WITH YOU I AM WELL PLEASED
Every time I read that Gospel, I get goosebumps. . . because there is nothing I want to hear more that those words from the heavens.
In my heart and mind, I have this idea that, at the end of my days, I will stand before God and God will say, “You are my beloved, and with you I am well pleased.”
At one level, I don’t know why I react so strongly to those words, but on another level, I know exactly why. Because all of this – everything I do is because it is the only response I feel that is appropriate for what I have received.
