Today’s Second Reading proclaims, “our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed . . . as we look not to what is seen but what is unseen.” This verse reminds me of the familiar adage, “I turned and my mind was stronger, but my body started to fall apart.” For each person, that age is different, however the concept is the same. Eventually, our bodies get tired and worn out. Keeping our minds and hearts focused on God, we are more grateful, more content, have more wisdom, and are less prone to irritability. We also hear about our Earthly dwelling, “a tent,” in this time of year filled with vacations filled with tents or trailers. Join me in looking to the Heavens, with a much grander “building” for all.
