"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
"How to recognize Jesus:
Listen to whatever clues you’re given. For instance, angels told the shepherds to look in a certain town and a certain kind of place. They even mentioned swaddling clothes.
So . . . it helps to listen to what others have said about Jesus......
Let go of preconceived notions.....
Open your life to whatever path God shows you....
So . . . when you wake up in the morning, say yes to God and yes to the path. When you’re in the midst of a busy day, say yes. When you settle down for the night, say yes. Pray for that kind of faith and openness."
This is from a very short, but meaningful reflection that was really from Advent, but I think the message is appropriate for any time - maybe especially now when we are making resolutions for the New Year and planning how we can deepen our relationship with Jesus this year. I invite you to click on the link to read the complete reflexion - it's very short - will only take a minute or two to read.
Good morning, my friends. Hope everyone had a great week and can relax and enjoy the weekend.
I'm coming along - resting, relaxing, spending time with the kids, getting things done that had been put off for too long..... I still haven't been on SP as much as I'd hoped, nor have I tackled email and other correspondence that I need to take care off. I recognize that I'm avoiding pressure right now - I think that's what I need to do... little by little I hope to catch up....
I am exercising and I am watching my food, so I hope that scale will move down little by little! I need to build up my strength again, I tire so easily, steps leave me out of breath and I walk slowly. All so different from a year ago!!! My knees are so-so.... good days and bad days - yesterday was a bad day! Maybe because I went out to early Mass (First Friday), and then on to errands, so I didn't exercise.
Well, am off to exercise right now, so I'll try to be around a little later. Have a great day!
Blessings and hugs!
