😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. I’m so thankful the sun is starting to rise earlier. Seeing and sharing a sunrise absolutely warms my heart. Driving to a meeting Saturday morning, a friend and I were heading straight into the rising sun, which sparked a conversation about how transition lenses don’t change in the car because the windshield has some UV ray protection build into it, therefore my glasses won’t change. My friend commented that even on cloudy days, 70% of the sun’s rays make it through, so you still need to wear sunscreen. That put a big smile on my face. Even on your cloudy, dark days, the Son will always be a ray touching your life. You may not see those radiant beams of light on the cloudy days, be that doesn’t mean He’s not with you. And as long as you don’t put Sonscreen on, He will leave His mark on you. You know what I mean, that undeniable glow that shines forth from the faces of those basking in the Son. There’s no other glow like it.
Thursday evening kicks off the Greater Dayton Women’s Walk to Emmaus #107. I’m so excited for the 22 Pilgrims that are going to be spending 72 nonstop hours of being drenched in the Holy Spirit. I’m also excited for the 30 team members and the community of volunteers that have been and will continue to freely give of themselves this weekend to ensure these Pilgrims have everything they want and more. You know, sometimes its in the receiving of that which we didn’t even know that we were missing or needed, that can turn a mind…heart…life around. Even if someone told these ladies everything planned on the schedule for them this weekend, they still wouldn’t have a clue as to what’s about to happen in their lives this weekend.
With that being said, in powerful moments like these, Satan is bound to be pounding on the door and trying his best to sabotage any and everything he can to keep God’s Pilgrims from experiencing the unconditional love and grace of our Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Three in One. Of the 27 live in team members, five are Michele’s/Michelle’s. As you may know, Saint Michael is the patron saint of Michele/Michelle. And Saint Michael is an Archangel, a defender of the kingdom of God. The team kind of took that as a sign that this Walk needed to call upon Saint Michael to help protect all those participating in Women’s Walk #107. As the Lord places these Pilgrims and this team in your thoughts and hearts this weekend, will you please say a pray that God’s Will be done. And if you’re willing, maybe pray this prayer to Saint Michael.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
Bless others and be blessed.
