Seeking

Sometimes people surprise me.
Tonight at a committee meeting (the church kind that begin with Gospel reflections), the question was, "If Jesus were to ask you what you are looking for, what would your answer be?"
My mind was a blank. The word peace popped in my head, but so did the word answers.
The woman next to me said, "Forgiveness and salvation."
The woman next to her replied, "Wholeness and holiness."
If they weren't so utterly sincere, their smarty-pants responses might have been annoying.
But they weren't. They were beautiful and honest and a reminder of what this life is about.
