Excuse me, your slip is showing...

So - on a retreat last weekend, I took a couple of minutes to go into the chapel and ready myself for the beginning of our Rachel's Vineyard retreat. Father John had just brought the Blessed Sacrament from his parish into the retreat house and then into the chapel and I decided to go in and say "hello" to Our Lord and Savior.

I knelt down in front of the tabernacle and started to rearrange my posture, starting first with slightly pulling up my skirt and rearranging the slip that was under it.

It hit me ... "your slip is showing in front of Jesus!" Immediately, I let my skirt drop to cover my slip.

I prayed and during my prayer, starting chuckling - - of course my slip shows in front of Jesus! He sees me warts, slip and all...and He loves me!

What a wonderful thought -

I was doing my gratitude list for today and, as always, I put that I am grateful to be sober and grateful to have a God who loves me just the way I am - and then it dawned on me, He does! But even better? He loves me enough to want me to be better than I am right NOW!

Ain't I profound, Sissy?
