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.

WE MUST TRUST IN PROVIDENCE

AN INKLING For Courage and Lightheartedness

48th day of shelter-in – I say that is enough.  Lockdown is unsustainable.  People are realizing that they don’t want to give up their freedoms.  Let’s get moving again, don’t you think?

We shouldn’t succumb to prolonging the fearmongering of this pandemic.  When duty and love are joined, grace abounds.  I believe people want to resume work and life and still maintain safety.

Church – Reopen your doors.  We are the living stones of the church.  How can we draw life without receiving the sacraments, the bread of life?  Remember the recent martyrs beheaded by Isis who gave their lives for Eucharist.

Puzzle of the Month:

Often we are covered with wisdom and wit, and oft with a cloth where the dinner guests sit; in beauty around you and over your head, we are countless, though numbered when bound to be read.

Can you guess the answer?  Hint: 6 letters

FROM THE DESERT COMES WISDOM

INKLING FOR  Wisdom

Desert Father Abba Zeno has left us a legacy on how to experience union with God in the quiet silence of the desert.  He recounts this story for the soul.

If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies.  Through this action God will hear everything that he asks.”

May these two weeks remaining before Easter sanctify our union with God.
