We read about Jesus’s walks and how  he was constantly being waylaid by people wanting something from him. The disciples were always trying to hold back the crowds. Yet, it was during those stops – those interruptions – that we learn about the miracles and what it was like to have God walk among us. It causes me to think how some celebrities blow past a crowd of admirers, while others react to interruptions with grace and class.

I also think about my own life and how it was the interruptions, the detours, and the obstacles that  have enriched my life. I need to constantly remind myself that an aversion to being interrupted is in a sense a resistance to change, and often that change is an opportunity not a nuisance.

Today we reflect on the interruptions, the obstacles, the annoyances that have enriched our lives. Think about your current path, and pray that you recognize the detours and obstacles as guides. Guides to the path you are  intended to travel.
