Penguins!!

Wasn't going to post anything today. (don't worry, Pueo and Aunty Esther, I haven't forgotten the memes!) So the past hour was spent in wandering around the wonderful Catholic blogs, trying to find something to post. Well, quite near giving up, I was staring at the penguins on Cookie's sidebar. The funny bumbling birds walk around until your mouse gets near them, then they stubbornly follow it thereafter. You can pick them up and drop them (er, yes, even throw them :-[ )
Then, I remembered to look up today's readings as we hadn't gone to Mass because my younger brother had sports. Going to EWTN, a quote came up:
"We are at Jesus' disposal. If he wants you to be sick in bed, if he wants you to proclaim His work in the street, if he wants you to clean the toilets all day, that's all right, everything is all right. We must say, 'I belong to you. You can do whatever you like.' And this ..is our strength, and this is the joy of the Lord. "
-- Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Rain or shine for us, we can't forget that God knows what He's doing
"All weather is good because it comes from God"
-Saint Teresa of Avila

...and all that came from staring at a cluster of penguins?



UPDATE
Now I remember why this was so familiar! Saint Therese said something about that! She was a little toy, content with however her Child played with her. He could bounce her, hug her, leave her in a corner, poke her, even leave her to go to sleep. Yet she knew that He would never forget her.

What a great post, Cy! I enjoyed reading it!

And I am proud of you and CT! It feels like I didn't do much to raise you this way; it is because God did most of it. And that's the way it should be!
Love,
Mom
