Daily Meditation – Living a life of gratitude

On July 22, 2016, our good friend and nextdoor neighbor, Nita Garrison, passed away. Throughout her battle with cancer, she always carried a smile and incredible generosity in her heart. We miss you greatly.  The following meditation is in loving memory of our friend, Nita.
     
It is not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of a life you have lived.
 
- Anonymous

Please pray for the respose of the soul of Nita Garrison.  As well, please pray for her husband, children and all who were touched by her smile.

Daily Meditation – Gratefulness & Happiness

Happiness is not what makes us grateful.

It is gratefulness that makes us happy.

Daily Meditation – In the Hands of God

The following excert is from a prayer by Pedro Arrupe SJ after he suffered a debilitating stroke, the effects of which he patiently endured for the final ten years of his life.

More than ever I find myself in the hands of God.  This is what I have wanted all my life from my youth.

But now there is a difference; The initiative is entirely with God.

It is indeed a profound spiritual experience to know and feel myself so totally in God’s hands.

Daily Meditation – Road Ahead (Prayer Wisdom from Thomas Merton)

Daily Meditation – Road Ahead (Prayer Wisdom from Thomas Merton)

"My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone."

- Thomas Merton
