Salome, you already are that person who makes Jesus smile all the time. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise … especially you. Everything he said, did, and continues to do is on your behalf. It’s so easy for us (see what I did there, I’m including myself) to become distracted by our own stumbles, falls, and foibles; when the easiest thing for us to do is to keep our eyes and hearts focused on him.
Get your hands on “Reflections for Ragamuffins,” it’s radically wonderful!
