And we can share in it. We are taking a cross country camping trip soon visiting 17 or 18 states most of which we've never set a toe in before. What anticipation! We'll be visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Help in Wisconsin, the only approved apparition site in the United States.
Despite so much bad news in our culture, there are still enough blessings to fill an ocean. God is so good and He loves us so much; He pours blessings into our laps like water over a falls during flood season. Do you look forward to them? It's easy to keep our faces turned to the bad news and despair. Don't do it! Despite everything, God wants us to to rejoice in all things and to be ready, as St. Peter says, to give "a reason for this hope of yours." (1 Peter 3:15)
What sends a thrill of anticipation up your spine?
