Sabbath Moments

Today, I am joining Colleen at Thoughts on Grace for her weekly meme, Sabbath Moments. These are moments we take to spend with God; to rest in Him and just be. They can be planned or may just come upon us. Two special moments with God this week come to mind. The first was planned. I have Wednesdays completely off from work so I always get to Mass early on this day to join my fellow parishioners for the Rosary. I love when I get to do the Rosary, Mass and the Eucharist one right after the other. I always try to do extra Bible reading on these days and the Mercy Chaplet also. This always floods me with grace, especially on the days when I go to confession first. I try to go once a month to keep my soul clean.
The second moment was unplanned. I often meditate on the Passion of Christ and this never fails to move me and inspire me. Most of my poetry is written during meditations. This week as I was meditating I wrote a new poem called, One Came Back. I was thinking about St. John and how he ran away in the Garden of Gethsemane, but though he was the youngest, a mere youth actually, he came back and was with the Lord during His last moments. Out of all the disciples only one came back. I am putting it up on my poetry site this week. It's by far not the best poem that I have written but it deeply touched my heart to write it. I have overwhelming God-moments whenever I write poems. It brings me great joy and peace.

My post is a little late, but better late than never :)
