I was a jibber jabber (meaning I talked and talked) when I last went for spiritual direction. Lent accomplished what my director set out for me. I have a better and better relationship with God. I finally understand and feel God's mercy. It overwhelms me. It lays me flat out snookered. I can't believe I didn't let myself feel that love before. I can't believe I could live without it.
My spiritual director told me something that was probably a quote from someone else, but I wasn't paying close attention so I don't remember who, but it was this--imagine the kindest, fairest, most loving person you know. And imagine God loves me way more than that.
Imagine. God loves me that much and more than I can imagine.
