The Holy Spirit's presence in our life is experienced by the alert person, with an awareness that we are being woken out of our sleep, to reveal The Father's plan for our life guiding us into all that we were born to become.

“Turn over the rudder in God's name, and sail with the wind heaven sends us.”~ Catherine of Siena
