As a spiritual director, many times I ask directees, “Where do you see God in this story or situation?” It is a time to reflect just where God may be showing up, where the Holy One may have left a handprint behind. There are many ways in our daily lives where God shows up, makes his way known, gets our attention. Our youngest daughter is living with a family in Chile this summer, teaching them English, and I have missed her so much. She knows that I love taking pictures of hearts anywhere I find them. She sent me this picture yesterday taken from her lunch plate and I felt her love, God’s love, 6000 miles away in the guise of a heart-shaped potato. It reminded me that God’s love (and others) shows up in the most unexpected places if we have eyes to see.
