“Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.”

–Proverbs 15:16

Is less really more?  Most probably yes, if you consider that there is Joy in simplicity of life.

To say the least, events that lead up to a ‘black Friday” shopping frenzy for the holidays to place gifts under the Christmas tree can be exhausting.  This includes a mad rush for purchasing the latest gadgets or fashion trends.  But we all know that worldly wealth does not form true happiness.  Rather, enjoying a favorite pastime of winter can well up in one’s heart with a lasting joy only Christ can give.  We can thank God for his beautiful creation.

“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains; for the Lord has comforted his people and will have mercy upon his afflicted.”

–Isaiah 49:13

Day in and day out, let us aim for Joy in Simplicity.

How wonderful God makes us to follow our own intuition.

Has anyone lately suggested you should follow your intuition?

It’s something intangible that you feel deep in your gut to listen to.  You know it comes from your heart and soul.

“Intuition is the whisper of the soul.”  — J. Krishnamurti

Intuition gives a special reasoning to listen to, to create something, helps to live mindfully, to value dreams, keep a journal, able to relax and dismiss all negativity in life.

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.”  —Dean Koontz

With a keen sense of trusting intuition, one can live a more empowered, stronger and happier life.

I wish you great intuition!

Joy is my greatest gift to others; if I dare lose it, I have nothing to give.

Every emotion I feel guides my adoring inner being.

I receive my inner being as a strong vibrational response to anything that comes my way.

I am safe.  I am blessed.

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.

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.
