It has been said that life is a journey. It is used as an analogy because we often know little of what lies ahead. We can be surprised by wonderful happy moments or sudden tragic sadness. Sometimes, in fact most of the time, life is ordinary. Just like any trip.
The first reading focuses on seeing and recognizing the presence of God. and because of our baptism, we can see the world in a way, because of God’s grace, where we never journey alone, since we are led by God. Through good and bad, thick and thin, happiness and sadness, and even the ordinary, God is always there.
