Thoughts off the Glass

Lent ……. Day Seven

Lent ……. Day Seven

“And so it is in the world of souls, in Jesus’ garden…he has created smaller ones and these must be content to be daisies or violets destined to give joy to God’s glances…  Perfection consists in doing His will, in being what he wills us to be.” (Story of a Soul, 14)
St. Therese of Lisieux

God created us in His image.  Accordingly then we are perfect because we are in His image.  Both body and soul. 

Why do we not feel that though?  Because.   Because God also imposed upon us free will.   He wants us to love Him as much as He loves us.   But because we “think” we know better,  that we are smarter than a fifth grader, we out smart ourselves most, no, all of the time.  We should bask in His glory!!   Take a deep breath and feel His love through the Holy Spirit fill your lungs!   Look around you and be thankful for where you are and what you have.  Take that love that was freely given to you and give it to someone else as well, share it.   Say “Good Morning!” to the stranger,  hug a priest or nun,  say “I Love Yuo!” to your spouse, brother or sister, mother or father, well okay to anyone that you love!!  Stop comparing yourself to the Jones next door and start comparing yourself to where God wants you to be.  Through constant prayer you will begin to understand and hear God speak to you.

Our Father, who art in Heaven,  hallowed be thy name! ………
