I meet a couple times a month with a small Spiritual Journey group at my parish where we discuss where or whether God has been accompanying us. Of course, He is always there, but most times we aren't paying attention. I mentioned that for maybe the 60th time in a row, I don't seem to be keeping my intentions as planned and frankly, I feel guilty, again.
Cathy_of_Alex, who blogs at the Recovering Dissident Catholic, on the other hand, reminds me that just by praying for her and her dying friend, my Advent might be more fulfilling than it seemed. Check out Cathy's blog.
