My Advent work has been to work on being nice always when speaking to my children.
I am failing . Terribly. Horribly.
I don't know what is wrong with me, but the more I try to speak well, even in trying situations, the more I fail.
I can relate to St Paul, on doing not what I ought but what I don't want .
Horrible morning this morning, getting ready for the pool and Group Learning end of year party.
I have apologized and the day was good but my manner of speaking irks me.
During the final session of the Advent programme tonight, Br. mentioned that God gives us all the graces we need, through the Sacraments and especially in the Eucharist.
Well, duh, I know that but, duh, I don't remember it all the time.
I need Reconciliation - thank heaven tomorrow is the Second Rite of Reconciliation at our church, before Christmas.
I may be failing my Advent work but, hey, I am not failing life. I have the Sacraments and God's grace.
Hope your Advent is blessed and joyous. :-)
