1. K-Love Encouraging Word: a daily scripture verse...Today's was
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NLT
2. Daily Blessing: a Saint Quote (usually whichever feast is that day)...Today's was
If something irritating or troublesome happens, instead of loading with curses whatever is not going the way we want it to, it would be just as easy and a great deal more beneficial for us to say: ‘God bless it!’ Imitate the holy man Job, who blessed the name of the Lord in all the troubles which befell him, and you will receive the same graces as he did.3. Food for Thought: from Dynamic Catholic, an organization by Matthew Kelly - these are from the Mustard Seeds devotional...Today's was
- Saint John Vianney (1786-1859), Feast Day August 4
Why is it that you so easily become a victim of your imagination? Perhaps it is because you allow it to run loose as a spontaneous response to the smallest matter, or passing comment, rather than assessing the facts and maintaining your peace of mind.
- Mustard Seeds
ALMOST every single day one or more of them speaks to me. The Food for Thought was the most poignant for me today in that I very easily become a victim to my imagination. I am amazing at the 'what if' game and the 'what was meant by that look/word/omission' that she/he just gave me. It's not a game you want to be good at, unless you are good at avoiding it! Also what John Vianney said - blessing the Lord no matter the good or the bad that befalls you!
So, I work on that again for tomorrow...slowly growing in virtue, one day, one vice at a time.
