August… Reminds us of Summer “Sunshine”

We are each called by Jesus to be…
Love
Kindness
Charity
Peace
Forgiveness
Compassion

Let us strive each day this month…
…to pray 10 minutes with Jesus quietly
…to reach out to others with a kind word or deed
…to sow the sunshine of peace everywhere we go by…
…to listen with our heart… really listen
…to accept differences with deep respect
…to have a cheerful spirit

Let us look up each day…
…to the morning sunrise with great joy
…to the evening sunset with great gratitude

Lord… You are the “sunshine” of my life. Amen.

July 2021

We are reminded early in July on July 4th to Celebrate the Spirit of America. Let’s celebrate with…
…unity
…respect
…hope
…better understanding
…compassion

Let’s celebrate the month of July with caring for one another…
…by being extra kind
…accepting differences with respect
…being responsible stewards of the earth

Let’s celebrate with a prayer in our heart and spirit.
Take time on these warm July Summer days to reflect on the gifts of America…
As We The People …
…establish justice for all
…insure domestic tranquility
…provide for the common good
…promote general welfare
and…
…secure the Blessings of Peace for ourselves and our posterity.

What a wonderful way to share our mission of being an American by being “a people”.
To be “a people” (Pope Francis) means our family of earth is united by human solidarity. This unity is born of “closeness” to God in our daily encounters.

What a blessing to be an American “people” …a variety of cultures, colors, beliefs and dreams.

We are “a people” given dignity by God.

Share this blessing especially especially during this July 2021

Become the Blessing of Love
accept one another…
as a brother, as a sister…
one heart united under God.

Celebrate the gifts that God has given to you. Daily Miracles of goodness dusting our world.

Sing an Easter time song filled with surprising moments

In striving and that is all one has to do… strive to be your best.

Then get up everyday and

March 2021

Surrender:
…to all that holds you back from life-giving ways
…from holding back acceptance of all humanity
…to being a servant of God’s Love
…to the holy courage of speaking truth with dignity
…to living your faith by caring your cross
…from letting your fears control your life
…from thinking you cannot get up again

Surrender… with a prayer in your heart. May our fragile souls expand and be fortified as we see that Jesus has been there all along waiting in the surrender. In the surrender, hope is born of despair and faith arises renewed.

May this March that brings forth A Holy Week be a reminder of the joy-filled graces God shares for the journey.
