Sorry about yet another update but I had a very interesting moment while praying the Rosary today and I want to thoroughly think about it before I commit myself to a full length post on it.
In a nutshell... halfway through the Third Sorrowful Mystery, the Crowning with Thorns, a thought came into my mind that I have never had -- I am willing to suffer all that I must in this life on earth as long as I can spend eternity with God. In fact, nothing would make me happier than to have that possibility of going to Heaven and always being with Him. In other words, I am more ready now than I have been before to carry my own cross.
I hope to write more about this tomorrow... if I can gather my thoughts in time for a post. I will say that I am at peace and extremely happy with this thought. I may not be able to sleep tonight as I contemplate this. Though I am not going to bed yet, I will end this post now. The philosopher in me wants to think about this while it's nice and quiet. :D
Until next time, thanks for reading and God Bless. :D
