As I collect my thoughts to end the day, I think of all the life matters unresolved, the pile of laundry undone and the odds and ends left for tomorrow. I ask myself what truly matters? As my energy wanes and my eyes tire I leave the laundry and chores behind and get ready to rest knowing I will be given all that I need for tomorrow and that for today what matters was that I loved others and was loved by others. I will leave the big picture and all the planning for the Divine and perhaps entertain it when I have a little more energy.
I hope this Easter is very special for Everyone. God will shower upon us Great Blessings. All we have to do is have an open heart and accept all the Good headed our way. : D
"In every struggle, dear God, you have bound me to your heart. Help me to learn from my trials and sufferings the power of your love."
"Pray for all those who are struggling today, that God will give them the strength and the courage to go on. Pray that the hearts of humanity will bring solace to the most impoverished and hopeless among us, healing the wounds of neglect and unconcern. May our commitment to nonviolence and compassion exceed our desire for retributions, possession, and fear."
40-Day Journey with Joan Chittister
"Serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received."
I think it is so important to work and recognize the gifts we were given and use them to serve our community or others at any level that we feel we can. How about you?
