Today marks the beginning of lent in many Christian communities. It is a time of contemplation and renewal of faith.
I invite you to join me in the following prayer:
Dear Lord as I make my Lenten journey with You,
Send me Your spirit,
Help me to turn away from sin,
And help me to fast and pray,
So that I may know You
And serve You better.
Let me be renewed through my grace with the world
"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold Grace of God"
-1 Peter 4:10-
Recently I read an article that I would like to share......
"Spirituality is a way of life and is made up of four parts:
Receiving the gifts of God with gratitude
Cultivating them responsibly
Sharing them lovingly in justice with others
Standing before the Lord in a spirit of responsibly
THE GIFTS OF GOD
Your faith, hope, love, joy
Your family and relationships with others
Your intelligence, talents, and skills
Your imagination, compassion, and vision
Creation in all it's splendor
With so many blessings come great challenges. At all times in our life, we have an opportunity and a responsibility to share what we have been given"
