Albert Einstein famously said, "The way I see it, you have two ways to live your life: one, as if no miracles exist and the other, as though everything is a miracle." To be open to the miraculous is to be open to impossible things becoming possible. It is a stance toward life that is fundamentally hopeful, one that places confidence in God always, and is especially confident when all other sources have run out.

Presbytery meeting today, the meeting at which I hope to be approved for ordination.
Some new and demanding life complications as of Wednesday became much more challenging yesterday.
So: I'm thinking about Teresa of Avila saying to God: If this is how you treat your friends, no wonder you have so few of them!
And: We are going for the seemingly impossible becoming entirely possible.
