WHERE PEACE CAN BE FOUND – IF ACCEPTED

It Happened on this Road
Have you ever embraced danger without fearing its consequences?
That Saturday morning was glorious with a touch of early Spring. Off she drove with a list to buy her weekly groceries at the farmers’ market. Returning home she noticed several cars in front of her detouring into the opposite lane at what seemed to be an obstacle in the road. To her horror laid a still body. She stopped and stooped towards the disheveled woman curled in a fetal position. Where are you hurting? The woman groaned. Let me take you home. Where do you live? Meanwhile a bystander shouted, O she’s just drunk! As the young woman carried the frail old woman into the car, she began to pray silently in her pounding heart. A few blocks down the road, the ailing woman raised her head pointing to a place — here! here! she uttered. The car halted, as the old woman walked away, the younger one handed her the groceries she had just purchased.
“Haven’t I commended you: be strong and courageous?
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
I never saw this person again and to this day hope she is well, such was our mysterious encounter on that special morning. Not even wondering why the other cars did not stop to help. Danger embraced me with courage to the rescue. Courage follows danger weaving itself in the tapestry of human events. I know, we can count on God’s promise to shield us from any danger.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

ENLIVEN THE MIND FROM THE BLUES
BEYOND WINTER STORMS
“Humility is the fairest and rarest flower that blooms.”
GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION
“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough!”
“Each moment is all we need, not more. Be happy now and if you show through your actions that you love others, including those who are poorer than you, you’ll give them happiness, too. It doesn’t take much — it can be just giving a smile.
The world would be a much better place if everyone smiled more. So smile, be cheerful, be joyous that God loves you.”
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
THE MERCY OF GOD
AS WIDE AS ALL OCEANS FOR
THOSE WHO PLEA FOR HELP
“O Lord, you are good and forgiving, full of love to all who call.”
