Allowing the Light of Christ within to reflect outward with love those we encounter on our lives path.
Thoughts of Faith, Hope and Love which are all God’s gifts for us to embrace and celebrate during our lifespan here on earth. I will also contemplate at times and share the ways I see that we are living more than a little bit of Heaven right here on earth.
I invite you to join me in exploring topics that can at time be painful for myself and perhaps a reader, as well as finding humor in everyday life events.
“God is inclusive by nature. He is everywhere and part of everything, including our very being. The Eucharist, Communion, Contemplative Prayer, the Eyes of a Loved one. . . Whenever we open ourselves to His grace, He enters. His love is more of an overall acceptance and inclusion than teachings many do not see was being taught by Jesus. Faith, Hope, Love – Honor and Respect for our Trinitarian God in a way supersedes any religious teaching – no? Jesus was not about religion, He was here to bring non-believers to God.” ~ Laurie
We are in a very unique place in time. So often, too often, we can become so wrapped up in our every day life that we miss the true gifts God has given to us. As we continue to evolve in our lives journey (as we should) we have the opportunity to see new ways to bridge gaps, serve others, fill hearts, commune with God and nature. There are so many God-given gifts that are waiting for us to embrace and continue to embrace. Peace with our brothers and sisters all over the world is one of these gifts, that we can both work toward and enjoy. I am in awe when I consider the readers I have and the people who I communicate with around the world. We have power and responsibility in our lives to spread peace, love and happiness for all. This includes praying for those that oppose people who do not fit their mold, because our prayers do have the power to bring about a healing. Today, I am asking you to consider what you can do to spread more peace and love in the lives of those around you as well as those on the other side of the world that you don’t really think about in your day-to-day existence.
Where do you personally stand on the acceptance of those who practice a religion that differs from your own, someone of a different ethnic background, age, financial status, sexual orientation, location? Do you accept others with love and spend time to really get to know them, or are you too busy judging another’s lifestyle to be able to reach out with love and peace – which will unify Peoples across the world. It is lazy to say nothing will ever change. Each and every single one of us is responsible for making a peace filled world. ~ Peace be with you, and yours ~
Thank you for visiting – and helping to make our world a smaller place
Thoughtful and quiet. I am well, doing what I need to be doing, oldest is coming into town for the weekend. Little one and I will pick him up at the bus station tomorrow around 2 and have a late lunch before he goes on to a celebratory party for a friend who is now a doctor! Expect will be out with little one again late Sunday, though I gather our friend may not be available to speak, I hope I am wrong. ~ Leaning into Him. Have a good day ~ You are in my heart & in my prayers ~ Love ♥ Laurie
