Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. (Saint Teresa of Calcutta)
I am so excited (and a bit nervous) to be going on my first silent weekend retreat that starts tonight! I’ve always found an excuse why I couldn’t go, but not this time.
Our lives are filled with so much noise and distraction, it will be nice to “Be still and know that He is God.” I have about a thousand things to do before I leave tonight, and God-willing nothing will keep me from going this time! (Even though I almost crashed into a deer last night!) I will be praying for all of you. Thank you for being a part of this page!
“A child is God’s greatest gift to the family, to the nation, to the world. The child is a life from God, created in the image of God, created for great things, to love and to be loved.” Blessed Mother Teresa
