Saturday is more of a day of rest. There is no online Mass I can watch so I normally take it easy in the morning. So I have feed the cat, prayed and meditated, and then had porridge for breakfast. I am listening to a relaxation playlist on Spotify and having a cup of tea. I am super relaxed at the moment!
I had a couple of nightmares last night. I had different food yesterday and I assume that it has something to do with it. These nightmares were more like the ones I used to have in the past – extremely vivid and confusing. I am never sure if they were a dream or reality when I wake up.
As a result I was awake at 4:00am. I decided to listen to a podcast rather than get up because I am lazy! The podcast reflected upon the Road to Emmaus and I was struck by the last verse:
They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?”Luke 24:32
An encounter that leads to complete surrender. I have run away from my emotions most of my life – tried to hide them in logic and traditionalism. But, to be honest, the only thing I have ever wanted is to be passionately in love with Jesus. Or, in the words of Luke, for my heart to burn within me.
So there you go!
