Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in a 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 mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you 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

My best friend’s mom sent this to me in a card years ago, and it has stayed with me ever since.  It helps me to step back and take a look at what motivates me, how I spend the precious hours and resources that are given to me.  What breaks your heart?  What makes it sing?
