A Prayer for Wisdom

How Often Do We Think to Turn to God for Wisdom?
Lord, There are things in this world that clearly perplex me. Illness, Death, Poverty Just to name a few.
There are things to surprise and delight me as well. There I need your guidance on which you have for me and to know my limits.
Generous are your ways, it is clear you hold nothing back except for that which is not for my best. For YOU know the plans you have alone for me.

Loving Lent?

Often people think of Lent as a time to share in the suffering of Christ yet when they try to suffer for Christ, they become morose, centring more on their own sacrificial devotions than on God. Of course, Lent IS a time to get rid of the flub in our lives but only so we are able to connect more to the heart of our Beloved. I am thankful for ALL the suffering in my life because it has brought me closer to God. I once asked a priest what my life would have been like if I had not experienced suffering -if I had married a well-off dentist, had 1.25 kids and lived in an efficient, modern house. He put on a phoney, pious face, put his hands together in prayer, and said in a high, mocking voice, “Oh, you would be a nice Christian lady, praising the Lord.” What he meant by that amusing bit of acting was that I would be shallow, without depth and strength. If this is the situation, I say bring on real suffering, because I want—no I need—to live in reality.

What do you love to do? Do you see it as a way of honoring your Creator?
