Becoming Holy

Keep it simple…

on May 19, 2014

ImageToday has been a beautiful day…it started early with Joe leaving on a business trip.  I settled down to the Internet with my cup of coffee and a heart full of enthusiasm.  It’s Monday!  The sun is shining.  The whole week lies ahead.  I have set a small goal of living in the moment. Truly living. Seeing the beauty around me. Clearing out the nonsense and focusing on what matters. I came across a quote from St. Teresa of Avila which I shared on my facebook status this morning~”The closer one approaches to God, the simpler one becomes.”  An intimidating quote in our busy, complex, and cluttered culture.  

So…now I have to figure out how to make this happen.  Breathe.  Live.  Pray.  Simplify. I’m going to start with Mass.  Listen to the Word.  Receive the Word made flesh.  Return home and try to be what I receive.  Praying for each of you.  Praying for myself.  It truly is time to slow down and embrace each moment.  Life is going by at a crazy speed. Praying God’s peace and joy and love on us all.

Pathways

This is my journey. I write about paths I've traveled, lessons learned and mistakes made. Of course I can't neglect the path I am following right now.
