... in a conversation about this blog, of all things!

Since this is my first post, I guess I should give some background info! Wally Arida, the Publisher of ParishWorld has been trying to get me to write a youth blog for the magazine for quite some time now. I admit I had been a little hesitant because although I was very intrigued by the idea - I wasn't exactly sure what to write about. But this morning, he came up with this idea - "today I saw God...."

So I admit that I'd been procrastinating with this blog, using work and school to find reasons not to have time for it. But due to Wally's persistance, I finally did it. It's only now that I realize that it was GOD pushing me the whole time. He was chasing my time, my mind and, most of all, my heart -- which is all He really wanted from me in the first place.

This blog made me realize that seeing God doesn't have to be a big miracle that is obvious. It's really just the simple ways God is shown to me each day. It made me see that God is in EVERYTHING, in EVERYONE, in every conversation we have.

We just have to look for it.
