Love in my family...is real

We just celebrated the "feast of the Holy Family"...
Yesterday, we also celebrated the wedding anniversary of a couple who would be destined to share the LOVE of God with their own little "holy family" (the Acosta-Nava family)...

Where has this LOVE gone?
Do we remember to be kind and considerate of one another as we are born, live and grow within our own little holy families on earth?

Are we loving?
Are we taking the time (YES. This is an important precious commodity nowadays...) to be PRESENT and to LOVE one another?

I want to remember 2012 as a year when LOVE re-ignited in the hearts of the American people...When LOVE rescued us from the snares of darkness and despair...When LOVE continues to seek-and-find us wherever we think we are hiding-alone...

Pray, pray, pray...LOVE is growing!!!
Be ready to see what 2013 will bring - when LOVE grows...

The Presence of the Prince of Peace...

We invite the presence of the Prince of Peace...into our hearts
We ask the Prince of Peace to bless our world with peace...
to bless the poor in spirit, to be needy of Him at all times...
to bless the despairing hearts with Hope and constancy in prayer...

May those who grieve be comforted with His Joy and the promise of eternal life...
May the oppressed be lifted in freedom and justice...
May those who still suffer...be granted consolation and the wisdom of knowing the true union with the One who bears all pain and sorrow ahead of us all -
The one and only - Prince of Peace and Love!
Our beloved King of kings, and Lord of lords...
Jesus, the Christ!

Be Not Afraid

Lord, I wait for you. In the deep of this winter season come to me. Assure me that your strength is my own: Your courage inspires me to be unafraid. Your light will warm and lead me on. Amen.

To You o Lord I lift up my soul...

To You o Lord I lift up my soul...my mind...my emotions...my aging body...
To You o Lord I lift up my self...
I surrender all to You, o Lord.

In You, my God, I trust.
Have mercy on me and my family...
Especially during this holy season of Advent,
keep us close to Your loving heart.

The only place for me and mine
is in Your heart!!!
Teach us the way to this peaceful place.
Guard us from the enemy.
This is enough for me.
Amen.

Prayer is a Gift


Prayer is best thought of as a gift of our faith, rather than a requirement of it. We will all experience loss, even abandonment, at some point in our lives. But we know that God is there, waiting to help us make sense of it all, to come through the fire better and stronger than we were before.
