Experience the generosity of God in this very moment Learn how to live in the now, to trust, and to experience God's presence in your life. "I have seen the love and compassion of Sr. Bridget firsthand, in a ministry we have shared for years. She is a woman that not only talks about generous faith, but lives it daily. Enjoy this book - it will open your eyes to see God everywhere and in everything." - Rev. Gloria White-Hammon, MD, Co-Pastor, Bethel AME Church, Boston; and Executive Director, My Sister's Keeper "In addition to sh aring powerful stories of seemingly ordinary experiences, Sister wisely directs us to take the time to ponder, reflect, and be attentive to the ways the Lord is working on our lives. We all need to make time and space for God if we want to understand our calling and our mission. With the help of the very accessible guided meditations Sister has provided, we can all grow in faith and confidence that we can witness Christ's love to the people in our lives." - Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston This simple and joy-filled book opens our hearts to what is in the air we breathe, under our feet, and in this very moment: the abundant life, a gift from God. As Sr. Bridget says with her infectious enthusiasm, all we need to do is cultivate this awareness through three basic practices: Living in the moment Trusting in Divine care, and Experiencing God's presence. This is not a how-to book of methods and techniques. Rather, it is a collection of stories that give shape and face to these three practices. The people in these stories ask us to re-examine our own journey and change our perspective. In so doing, we take a second look at our life, and realize that what we have is more than enough for it is, quite simply, most abundant.
