In my inconsistency of ups and downs, I must consistently turn to the Father and allow myself to be drawn into his All-Knowing, All-Powerful, All-Mighty and All-Loving Father heart.

I, too, am part of the People of God and our Lord has promised his faithfulness to me. I can’t forget that, even though it can sometimes feel as though I’m standing all alone, helpless and uncertain.
Of course, it’s not good to go around acting like a drill sergeant. Sometimes there is good reason to be gentle. But at other times, people need to be shown that they have more potential than they give themselves credit for.

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about the above four points, and praying for understanding and peace in my heart. I still don’t understand this hatred generated by Islamic extremists, and I’m yet to feel especially peaceful about it.
However, I have been inspired to turn toward to Franciscan saints for intercession and guidance.
I learned a great deal in my time at Mayo Clinic, and I’ve no doubt that I’ll learn much more before this is all over. So far, the lesson that most resonates in me is the example of the Mayo founders: Determination, dedication, service, excellence, collaboration, and following God’s inspirations.
I’m not facing the life-threatening obstacles that Gehrig faced, but I am facing some obstacles of my own. And I’ve been asking myself if I could honestly say, I’m the luckiest (wo)man on the face of the earth.
I don’t think I could at first, but I’m getting there, and for the same reasons that Gehrig got there.
I do better and worse at living the Beatitudes, depending on what’s going on in my life at the moment, Sometimes I have a difficult time being merciful, especially in the face of injustice. I’m not always the best peacemaker, particularly when there’s drama involved, I’m fatigued, and I just want to wash my hands of the whole mess. I’m not so sure I ever like to be persecuted.
Right now, it’s this one I most struggle with.
