Happenstance

 Ever since I was in elementary school, I used to drop by my parish church to say hello to Jesus, whose body was the consecrated bread inside the tabernacle.  I used to hope I’d also see the girl I had a crush on, in the same class with the same nun as a teacher.  But the words of conversion fall on different ground.

I married a different girl, under different circumstances than I’d imagined.  It’s amazing how life comes up with circumstances we never anticipated.  It’s the way we receive the “fullness of life.”  I’m not a bit sorry; it all was more exciting.
