Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes



Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

Surprise

Sometimes heaven catches up with us
and we don't even hear the angels sing.
A surprise can wait around the next corner
and we didn't even hear the bells ring.
Everyone gets lucky once in a while,
hits that old jackpot and wins.
Sooner or later the sun comes out
and peeks through the fog as it thins.
Sometimes we get so used to losing,
we think the pattern cannot be changed
but everyone has their time of glory
when the usual is rearranged.

Fate has a way of sneaking up on us,
catching us completely unaware,
sprinkling stardust in our eyes
and moonbeams in our hair.
When we look in the face of true love,
something happens to our heart.
Suddenly we're a new person
as the seeds of love get their start.

It doesn't mean we'll never find it
just because it eluded us in the past.
We must always remember,
sometimes God saves the best 'til last.
