Saturday Morning Dates with Jesus
I have a new thing I'm doing...Saturday morning dates with Jesus!
After I attend Mass and I make sure everyone and everything is taken care of in the church, I head over to our little chapel and go to Adoration. Just walking out of the church and across the parking lot brings me excitement that I am about to be "up close and personal" with Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
When I walk in...I immediately feel a sense of calm and peace. I can feel Him there with me. Usually only one Adorer is there, so it's extra quiet and calm. I enter in, go up to the kneelers, kneel down and sometimes cry. I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude and love for our Lord. I pray, but then...I just listen. I listen to what He has to say to me. Sometimes He's silent, but that's okay...I know He's there. I imagine Jesus sitting on the Altar having a conversation with me. Looking at me with tender and forgiving eyes.
This Saturday morning date is very meaningful and powerful to me. I look forward to it every week and It helps me to really focus on what's important. To feel the warmth of God's presence and love for me. I leave there feeling like I can take on the world!
