While over in Michigan for the weekend golf cart mass, I saw again the amazing gift God gave us in His marvelous creation. His gift of creation was not missed as I watched the women’s US open golf at beautiful Pebble Beach golf course. What a place to enjoy a round of golf. And I didn’t miss His gift of talent to those who played in this golf tournament. I watched a lot of tennis from Wimbledon and thought about God’s amazing gifts and talent there.
But after listening to God’s word in the Gospel today, I thought of Jesus entrusting the building of the church to his band of apostles. They were blessed and gifted to undertake this challenge. How amazing is this God who entrusted this same church to us? How easy it is to be Grateful!
