In the Gospel for the Twenty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time,  Jesus advises his disciples about making decisions.  “Amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18: 19-20).   After months considering all the pros and cons, consulting with mentors and friends, praying for wisdom, and checking my heart,  I decided to propose to my wife.  Ultimately I trusted in God present in our agreement of love.  When you made a major decision, how was God present to you in other people?
