Is it not the case Gods sense of humour is so much bigger then our!
This is a great reminder
My Dearest Anne,
What really can I say but trust me! I love you just as you are and not how you think you should be.
I know I have given you challenging situations but did I not give you the strength to deal with them?
I’ve also gave you loving friend to help you and encourage you all the way:-)
With regards you true vocation in Life I am sorry but you are going to have to wait and see! BUT still keep trusting me and loving me as much as I know trusting can be hard but I do know it will be hard because of you tainted past but with out the taint you would not grow into the most beautiful daughter of mine
I love you and accept you for who ANNE is how can I get that in to your head. Remember the poem Footprints I know it one of your favourites you are the person I am carrying and I’ll always hold on to you even when the waves are crashing at my feel I’ll hold you even tighter!
Any way keep praying!
Lolto of love back at you my dear child
love and prayers
Thank you for giving me a deeper sense of you over the last few weeks.
I have come to see you as an intimate friend and someone totally reliable.
I am struggling physically. It is so frustrating and makes me angry but the frailty of it has made me slow down and see thing so differently.
With regards my true vocation. What is it! I really want to do your will and your will alone! won’t you just tell me PLEASE! I feel very let down by you sometimes. Is it me is it my barrier that are stopping me! Please help me!
You have given me so much over the last few years and I am very lucky please never let me take it for granted and let me accept your graces and blessing graciously!
Lot of love and prayers
When I was away on holiday my image of Eucharist was challenged. Ive always seen Mass as central to my relationship with fellow Catholics and God . Is it a meal to share and deepen our faith in God. Is this a right image to have ? I see it as part of the fellowship aspect of our faith.
The Mary and Martha part of the chapter never ceases to amaze me. A friend of mine gave a recent sermon it and how he imagine Martha to be of nervous disposition and the more I reflected on that the more I was struck by who I am and how I really ought to change some what and trust God. He also spoke of how anxiety is driven by fear and how fear can fester and make others feel anxious too. In recent times I have had to deal with a lot of hassle at work in my afternoon job and the more anxious I was the more entangled it became so I said my piece and left and prayed hard about it and left it at the hand of God! Which has been a first fro me:-)
My Fear and anxiety come from my past which every now and again will remind they are there and it hurts. It the lack of parental love do not get me wrong it was there but not in a way I wanted being an only child I truly believe they knew no better. So now I carve it in being a Martha which has it pros and cons and sometimes.
The other challenge the sermon posed was about deep listening. DO we do it! I try but it really hard.
lets ponder being a Mary and not a Martha and really listen to the needs of those around us in Joy and in sadness and god will bless us by it. 🙂
