Such a nice morning mass, and from there I hit my catechism meeting (I teach 8th grade) and then hit the pool. Another great half hour swim. No hip pain with swimming. Can a person train for a full marathon by just swimming? Probably not. I’d drown for sure.
My dear friend and one-time neighbor Jen stopped by for a little visit this afternoon. We played catch up and I told her that for me, right now is mainly time filled with thinking about and preparing for this marathon. I told her about my hip concerns. She, as always, spoke soothing God-filled words of encouragement.
And when she said she would pray that my hip would be healed, I actually said no. I said for her to pray that I will love God’s will. I want to love God’s will. I want to be happy. No matter what happens, and as Jen wisely said, God already knows what I want. He already has His answer. So, now it is up to me.
I know in my heart of hearts that His will is my only true happiness. Ultimately, His will is the only thing that will be right for me. I want to love that. I really want to surrender. I want to be happy.
