Jesus, so much fills me to overflowing each day of this journey of embracing my Most Cherished Cross and finding LIFE/LOVE/LIGHT! To have my wonderful Father - St John Paul II speaking the words of Jesus today makes me so happy and excited to look to The Church and find all that I need to be forever in Heaven with Jesus, Mary and all the Saints! How I love The Saints and I need never forget that I too am called to become a saint - the saint that is just me! I cannot do this on my own... I need to die to self so that The Holy Spirit may live and work and breath and love and share The Truth and when necessary use words and work and play and serve selflessly and without thought for myself. All this can only be done by Jesus at work in me, and I must step out of the way. Help me, Lord! I am yours alone and long only to be forever with you! Jesus, I know with each day and all that you bless me with - the Word, the Sacraments, the angels and Saints, my wonderful rosary beads and my Mother of Heaven and earth always there with me and walking with me... truly "God is blessing me now!" Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
My prayer with each new day!!
Jesus in The Word!
My friend, Katie, works in Guatemala at our mission there - her mom shared this...
"They have never slept on a mattress, only a board and have never had sheets or a bedspread, just old blankets. Kate bought them a dresser with a mirror for $80. They still have a dirt floor, no electricity or water but they feel like queens! All for under $500. We take so much for granted!"
It makes you think and realize we are drowning in stuff!
