Daily Meditation – Christ as the example

For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps. "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." When he was insulted, he returned no insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten; instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross, so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

- 1 Peter 2:21-24

Daily Meditation – The Lilies of the Field

Consider the lily in that it does not choose its field nor does it have control over what grows around it such as thorns or crabgrass. Alternatively, it may be outshone by beautiful flowers or other plants. The lily has no control over rain or drought, it simply must endure. The lily came up with unique characteristics such as a certain shape, color and size. Consider the correlation of the lily to your life. To what extent is my life world from my making; how much is from God? Consider the little control over what surrounds us daily. Finally, so for all that has shaped me for better or worse, all that has given me joy and pain – I am precious in God’s eyes and honored and loved.

“How much of me is mine; how much can be God’s?”

- Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius – Prayer of Consideration: The Lilies of the Field

Daily Meditation – I wish you enough

Consider the joy of friendship and love. Now consider the inevitable goodbyes that are sometimes temporary while other times much longer till being reunited in heaven. In 2001, inspirational speaker and author Bob Perks wrote the story, I wish you enough, which was even later published in the Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul. In saying, “I wish you enough”, one is “wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.” The poem is below:

I wish you enough

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."

Daily Meditation – Faithful Friend

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

- St. Teresa of Avila
