Just when I think I'm Done with a part of my life ... something happens to reawaken me to what I'm trying to ignore or move on from.
It happened last week, during the Sierra Madre wildfire. At work, nervously checking the Internet now and then for updates, I saw that the mandatory evacuations had been extended ... to within two blocks of my house!
I left work a bit early. As I drove home, trusting God to do His will in this, I found myself appealing in my heart to Mary, my mother. When I'm in trouble and need help, I always turn instinctively to Jesus' mother, as well as to God.
She needs to be part of the pasture I will call home.
