Blessed Mother Teresa

Today I read a bit about mother Teresa, and I an pressed to say that she was certainly a remarkable person. I am so moved as to say that in her life of devoted service to the poorest of the poor, and not feeling the presence of God, is a testament of her faith. As a convert to Catholic Christianity, I felt deeply like I understood her dryness in my own little way. I may not quite understand everything about being a follower of Christ, but I know that I believe. And even when I don't know, my faith carries on, unwavering , trusting that God IS. And will always be, ever present. So thank you mother Teresa, for your deep faith and trust even as you felt dry. And was steadfast till the end in doing the work you were called to do. All glory be to God now and forever...Amen

Saying good bye

These past couple of weeks have been hectic, a lot has happened that really puts things into perspective for me. Two friends from my church family have been called to the banquet table of our Lord, and saying good bye is not easy. As we celebrate the lives of our friends by remembering them, it not easy to accept that we Will not see them again here on earth. Times like this bring back memories of family who have been gone but never forgotten. I am not sure that anyone will ever understand, but knowing that we serve a living God helps to ease the burden of pain that is felt after such a great loss.

So today I can try to be better, love better, help better, listen better, play better and let things that I can not make better be a reminder to me that somethings will be better ONLY at the banquet table of our Lord... Amen

Stand firm in your faith!

Yes! We must stand firm in our faith regardless of our life situations. We just attended the Catholic charismatic renewal at Anaheim and the experience as always is up lifting and spirit filled. My spirit is renewed and I am so blessed to have God in my life. There is no other way to have joy, God is the one that makes our joy complete. There is a lot to be done, we have to rise up and not become lukewarm in our walk with God. Like it or not, apart from God we can do nothing.Take a good look around and see all that God Has made possible. Every breathe we take reflects God's gift to us. May we take time to be grateful today. And be just a little kinder to those we meet.
