Life is…

…only about getting close to God. Nothing else matters. I don’t know where I copied this statement from. I just taped it to the wall in our computer room, and it’s been there ever since.

Needless to say, many times I still have to consciously remind myself, especially when life gets a little crazy, as it is sometimes wont to be. The daily grind, the many cares of this world, take their toll on our relationship with God. And yet, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Thus, it has only been a couple of months since Jimmy and I decided to attend daily mass. It’s been quite a struggle, but it’s been worth it. Receiving Christ daily is exhilarating. Being with God is such great joy. One can not help but be good when one knows that Christ is inside of him.

I can understand why Scoot Hahn described himself as “salivating” after the Eucharist. The joy of being with God the entire day brings a certain lightness to one’s footsteps. I noticed that if I did not attend morning mass, I get easily irritated and upset. This is what happened today. I’m so glad we will be going to evening mass tonight.

What has happened to me? Call it addicted to the Eucharist. I don’t care. I just want to be with God daily.
