PRAYING FOR STRANGERS

Each day I am delighted to feed my ‘family’ of birds as they go to their nests to feed their young.  We interact no longer as strangers, which leads me to an inkling to pray for strangers.  As I pray for them, they pray for me.  Without knowing each other, we are building up the Body of Christ.  This Lent, my faith is pivoting to more than just getting by with rituals…my faith is breathing and expanding deeper.

I hope you are being touched by the power of the Holy Spirit.

INKLING FOR UNION

Something remarkable…Entering into Lent is always timely. 

Lent  is not so much about fixing ourselves; rather, it is all about meeting Christ in our brokenness.”

Fr. Joseph Mary Wolfe, EWTN Chaplain

“I challenge you, this Lent, let yourself be loved by God.”

–St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

However one carves out some prayerfulness with the Lord this season, allow Him to love; that will be my intent…for no one is unlovable.

INKLING FOR Honesty

“Be you – the world will adjust.”  –Buddhist Proverb

Looking into the mirror, sensing the ‘naturelle,’ honesty glares back and I can smile saying:

Only for today, I will firmly believe, despite appearances, that the good providence of God cares for you and me as no one else who exists in this world.”

WITHIN THE INNER CHILD

INKLING FOR The Inner Child

The inner child says I nurture the child within me through playfulness and self care.

That is exactly what I have been focusing on during this long pandemic.  Through inner healing retreats I have allowed the good Lord to help me rediscover my innocence as child, tossing to the wind all past wounds.  I’m settling in to become Jesus’ bride as he has given me a taste of heaven that’s achievable — surrender, embrace and love — because in the end what counts the most is my loving relationship with God and the people around me.

May God bless you with that special gift of being his inner child.
