Lent and Holy Week pretty much wore me out this year, which is why it’s been so long since I’ve updated this blog. Knowing my level of exhaustion, I arranged to visit the St. Meinrad Archabbey in Indiana the week after Easter, and found myself renewed in arms of that intentional community of Grace. During my time there I carried a journal around and sometimes even wrote in it. Here is what poured out one afternoon.
fill me with your love—
a love that is:
able to leap tall buildings in a single bound,
better than sliced bread,
and too wonderful for words.
Fill me with your love,
so that I can better love those you have given me.
