FROM YOUR PRIEST:
"lost and found"
Ever had that sinking feeling when you can’t find something? Where could you have left your (prescription) sunglasses that you need to drive. . .you retrace your steps, asking if anyone has seen them? (That happened to me in Lampasas this week.) Did you ever have a dog you love run off? (Me, again last week—he came back after hours of searching and worry). Of course, it can get even more painful when you lose a relationship by any number of means. Loss equals pain, dislocation, and sometimes shock. Jesus seeks out loss, he calls the lost, and his joy is in finding. He is determined to find us. Jesus rejoices at the return to the fold. He never stops calling and he always receives us with joy. We get lost all the time. God never stops hoping for our return.
