"Adversity does not build the character, it reveals it" - Jim Lane Allen. What has the past few months revealed about your character as trials came?
Today God graced me with such a wonderful revelation!! I have discovered the key my friends!! The key to love, to joy, to peace, to patience. It's all so simple and yet I have never looked at it in this way before. Are you ready for it?? The answer to those virtues is....
What is Heaven? Eternity with Christ. Union with Him for all of time. Time with Christ for eternity! Like seriously, Heaven is like a hangout with your best friend FOREVER!! How cool is that? Sounds amazing! Well if He's your best friend that is... Is He?
Deep down we all feel this purpose or calling in our inner most beings, but quite often we can't place it. We feel this yearning, but we may not known what for. Or maybe we already know it's for love, but we don't know with whom. So we go searching...
Just recently, I stumbled across a children's story I wrote a few years ago. I think my young mind dreamed of publishing it or something haha. Alas, that didn't happen 😉 But thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
When this whole quarantine thing started escalating very quickly, I was getting pretty upset about it all. I tried to justify my anger by calling it righteous. Jesus got angry once in the Bible and that was righteous anger (Mark 11:15). So, I told myself that it was okay of me to be angry the sacraments are not at our disposal right now. But is it? Is that really righteous anger??
Story time!! The first few days of Lent were hard for me. I wasn't used to the drastic change of routine and from the get go I was counting the days till Easter. By day three (yes, day THREE of lent) I felt like a wreck and was questioning whether I put too much on myself for Lent. What was I to do?
Day 8 and counting! Has anyone else done that? I think I've done it every day. I know haha. Lent has just begun. But am already SO excited for Easter!! How is it going for you? Has it been hard? Or do you hate to admit that Lent came so fast and life is so busy, you've hardly had a chance to even think about Lent?
