Daily Meditation – Unreserved Abandonment to God

“Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.”

- St. Ignatius of Loyola

Daily Meditation – Good, Bad, Who Knows?

There once was a farmer who had a horse. One day the horse ran away.

All his neighbors came to console him, but he was not distressed.

He told them, "Good, bad, who knows?"

A few days later the horse returned and with it was a mare.

All his neighbors came to him to congratulate him on his good fortune, but again he would not mind them telling them, "Good, bad, who knows?"

A week later his son was riding the mare, fell and broke his arm.

Again the neighbors came to wish him condolences and tell him how very unlucky he was.

The farmer shook his head and said, "Good, bad, who knows?"

A few days later, war was declared and all able-bodied young men were conscripted, but because on his son’s broken arm, he was not.

We are wise when we leave it to God to decide what is good fortune and what misfortune, and thank him that all things turn out for good with those who love him.

"Good, bad, who knows?"

Daily Meditation – Wisdom for the week

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Daily Meditation – More than just this life on earth

In memory of Ethan Hallmark who passed away on September 26, 2014

Consider this wisdom of a 13 yr old boy, Ethan Hallmark, as he was fighting a four year battle with stage four neuroblastoma, a rare type of childhood cancer.

“My biggest fear isn’t dying,” Ethan said to his father. “My biggest fear is that others will blame God for my death and not believe in Him. I don’t want people angry at God or even blaming Him. I mean, there is so much more than just this life. Just because He didn’t heal me on earth doesn’t mean He won’t heal me in Heaven.”

Daily Meditation – Jesus invites us to rest

The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.

- Mark 6:30-32
