Being a writer, words fascinate me. Whether preparing these spiritual snacks or preparing lessons for groups I teach, I could spend inspired hours crafting words. To date though, I have not found any words more transforming than the Word of God. When I was a young mom, I can remember putting my kids in for their naps and spending time in God’s Word preparing for the Sunday readings. My life was transfigured! Those words continue to live and breathe and have a heartbeat, the heartbeat of God. It is the Master teacher’s lesson plan for me as I sit in the school of prayer and understanding. Even though there are so many translations of the Bible, whichever translation we read; the luminous, revelatory message is still the same, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. “When we pray we speak to God; but when we read God speaks to us.” St. Jerome
