Radically…

Are you a specimen Apostle?…

Contained underneath impenetrable glass? …

Your wings no longer able to stretch in your place of limitation? …

Your beauty encased like a museum piece? …

Conformed now to the mold of the world and other’s expectations?

Radically in His love you have been called…

Radically in His love you have been marked…

Radically in His love have you lived, shared, provided?

“The Christian who does not bear witness is sterile, without giving the life he has received from Jesus Christ”. Pope Francis 5/6/14

Bus Stop Living?…

Waiting at the bus stop?…

Ipod tuned up high to the “when I do…then I’ll be…”  “if only I was….then I could…”etc, etc, etc?

Tinted sunglasses obscuring the vision of the “here and now”?

Will grown soft in the sitting and the waiting?

Bus Stop Living.

Friend, your daily ride just passed you by…the bus of the present blessings that make up the adventure of today.

It’s not too late to catch it…

Celebrate the present moment.  Savor its gifts hidden within. Live this day’s treasures in gratitude to the giver of all good gifts!

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Ps 118:24

A recipe for burnout.

What gets you up in the morning?…

A desire to accumulate riches, honors, and personal gain?

This shrine to self is built on a shaky foundation.

What gets you up in the morning?…

Cruising through the day not much thought why?

Those are shallow waters to swim in.

What gets you up in the morning?…

We exist for the PRAISE of God’s glory.

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.

What gets you up in the morning?

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

LIVE in your space…

Live in your space…

Uniquely yours, God’s gift to you,

where YOU can make a difference.

Not the space of was and were.

Not the space of should be, could be, would be.

This space is the present…

The miracle of the here and now…

Right where God has placed you.

In union with the great “I AM”.

Immersed in the great “I AM”.

Leave behind the yesterdays…

Let tomorrows become todays.

LIVE in the “I AM”….LOVE in the “I AM”

This is a good day to do great things…

In your space….where God has placed you…

Immersed in Him who is “I AM”!

“We were indeed buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised form the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life. ” Rom 6:4
