That image of fragments has stuck with me. I look at the fragments that make up my life. There is school at this time of the year. Not enough days to get all of the work done that is there. I have thoughts of taking off a day, so that I can go to school and work. That's messed up! Already, I bring things home. Mindless paperwork that matters to no one but the higher ups.
At times I am concerned about where my kids are headed spiritually. At times, going to Mass seems to be something to be resented. But in the last couple of weeks, both of them - at separate times - have expressed an interest in being part of our parish's next Bible study.
Fragments to offer to the Lord, so He can perfect them in His perfect way.
In the world of anxiety, things have been better. Once I noticed that something was a little "off", but then he told me that he had taken the wrong pill. But then the doctor called one day last week. The anti-depressant can't be taken with the anti-inflammatory medicine that he takes for his arthritis. As a matter of fact, no anti-depressant can be taken with it.
My thought is that the anti-inflammatory needs to be changed to something that is compatible with anti-depressants. But I'm not sure that will happen. He doesn't see the problem.
Another fragment that I have to offer to the Lord.
On a different tack, our school system is celebrating the rest of spring break with a 4-day weekend right now. We usually have a week off for Easter, but this year Easter was inconveniently located right before our statewide testing. So we had three days off for Easter, and two days now.
This evening my oldest is hosting a g-i-r-l visitor. She is someone we know from years ago, and they appear to be having a good time "socializing". My, how time has flown! Another fragment....
[Flower pictures from my yard. I planted the Easter Lilies, but I've enjoyed seeing the ones that others planted bloom in turn.]
