Lent begins in a few days. Take these 40 days to learn how much your Lord loves you and to receive His love. Then see what the rest of 2024 brings. 😊
The human body, as well as the human individual, is now believed to be a means to an end rather than an end in itself. That ultimate end is no longer eternal happiness in God but, rather, emotional and carnal satisfaction in the present. The human’s consciousness is focused on what they are rather than ‘who’.
Upon the birth of Jesus and thereafter, Mary and Joseph weren’t prepared for anything they experienced. Neither were the shepherds, the Magi, or even Herod. Each was going about their normal daily life, not realizing their own part in salvation history.
What part do I want to play in salvation history?
We each are a walking fragment of faith bringing His graces into the world. If we could only remember to see each other that way 😊
Each child is not only a blessing, he or she is God’s providence for us and the family that He builds. As we approach the birth of our Savior and Lord, let us marvel at the value and beauty of every human person being different by His design.
It is autumn, a season unique in the variety and sometimes brilliance of colors seen around us. While this can be said of spring and summer too, those seasons reflect the burst of new life. Autumn, on the other hand, shows us the beauty in life matured.
So too with the cycle of human life.
