How do we praise God with our lives?

By being the best “you” that “you” can be right where God has placed “you”!

Doing all for God in thanksgiving and praise for the gift of life He’s given you.

Even the smallest and most mundane occasions in our daily life become a gift of love back to Him.

Sweeping the kitchen floor…presiding over a business meeting…taking out the trash…exercising…making meals for the family…taking time to talk to those who cross our path…8  hours at a desk job.

All given to Him…for Love of Him.

The Apostolate of Daily Life!

Morning Offering Prayer:  Oh my God, I offer You all my thoughts, words, actions, joys and sufferings of this day in union with my Lord, Jesus Christ.  I want to make each of them an act of perfect love giving constant witness of You to those around me. “

“In Him we were also chosen, destined in accord with the purpose of the one who accomplishes all things according to the intention of His will, so that we might exist for the praise of His glory, we who first hoped in Christ.” Eph 1:11-12
