I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

While running on the Lakefront Trail, I found myself about 20 yards behind a girl running about the same speed as I was. I didn't know who she was, but let me tell you, she kept me going - as long as I stayed the same distance behind, I knew I was keeping my pace about the same. She had no clue I was following her...but that doesn't matter. She kept me going anyways.

Allow me to make a connection, then...Throughout our lives, we all have those people who keep us going - some know it, some don't. And, at some point(s), knowingly or unknowingly, you will be that person for someone(s) else.

So, keeping that in mind...what are you doing to keep yourself going? What picks you up and energizes you when you'd rather sit this one out?
