Lies for sale

Reminding all of us, especially me, to continue to suit up and show up and expect a miracle… a change of heart a baby saved, a woman making a decision to be open to life and learn natural family planning in her marriage… you never know what God can do with a willing heart despite our weaknesses, shortcomings and egos that often run riot throughout our seeking souls. God , I am willing, help our unwillingness. God works miracles in broken vessels as more light shines out for others to see!

SIDEWALK HELP

I arrived at the mill this morning full of distraction and frustration. It was one of those pity party days. Despite the early morning prayers, desolation was creeping into my soul. I told myself as I drove over to the mill, I will get out of myself  by suiting up and showing up in service to others.

I glanced into the parking lot at Planned Parenthood as I parked my car across the street. My heart sank as the  parking lot was full, not an available parking space in sight.  If I didn’t know better, I would think I was at Walmart, the day after Christmas.

I asked the guard has it been like this all day? He said, “yep, they party hard these last few days.  Christmas  season is big business here. ”  It was my feeble attempt to see any “success” with the efforts of pro lifers who…

Happy New Year!  As we lean into this new year let us not forget  who we are and why we need to keep seeking Him with all our hearts, soul and mind as we are living in a culture of death. It will become more and more apparent every day  that people of faith, hope, and  love will be greatly despised.   I pray abundant courage and perseverance  for all of us during these difficult days.

When the storm clouds gather, and the fear grips our often stony , and distracted heart, I pray we will have the eyes to see the silver lining in the storm. What is that silver lining?  Our  ego begins to die and we begin to serve others and not self.

During World War II, Anne Frank’s family and neighbors huddled together to survive. Because of their pressing living conditions, ego was choked out and love surfaced. All their walls came tumbling down and the question well what about me and my needs seems absolutely absurd in the face of much suffering and hardship.  Their  harsh reality of possible death in a concentration camp or to be discovered in their hiding place kept ego at bay. My prayer for all of us is to live in the reality that we are called to live with the day of our death held in our heart more than the closeness of our  ego feeding gadgets around us. Tragically, we quickly  forget who we are and that whatever we do in love and not ego, we do for Him whom we live and breathe and have our very being.

I have attached above a great Pro Life ego smashing speech given by Mother Teresa back in 1994 at a National Prayer Breakfast in DC.  It is challenging to live her message of love when we seem to like the familiar mirrors of illusion and vanity more.   Mother Teresa PRAY FOR US.  Help us to bloom where we are planted.bloomFullSizeRender (17)
