Graces For Every Day

Here is a prayer (revised) from a book titled "Graces For Every Day" that captivated my heart when I heard it this past week. Thank you to Sheryl for introducing it to me:

Summer sunset in the Midwest

"Lord, fill us with Your love. Help us to look at others as You look at us, for we never know what another soul is feeling or going through. Lord, keep us from becoming cold and hardened by the world. Teach us Your compassion; may we always be willing to help our neighbors without first having to be ask. Please bless us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen."

Foggy morning
with love,

We are made in His image

The music video really hits my heart. May we never forget to love. May we never forget to pray for others.

Cake Topper

“Love is a mutual self-giving which ends in self-recovery.”
 - Arcbishop Fulton Sheen

A cake topper from a friend's wedding. There is something magical about the natural bokeh effect that appears when using telephoto lenses.   
Buenos nachos,
Ahhh me

Sunsets and Joy

"Talking about our problems has become our greatest addiction. Break the habit – talk about your joys."
-Rita Schiano
Spring time in the midwest

Another spring time sunset

Well, that quote hit the spot. But then, I realized that the word "joy" is even hard for me to grasp. So I looked it up: "The Difference Between Joy And Happiness"

Today my joy were from the people I encountered, because God allowed the opportunity for us to greet each other with a smile, and therefore; to love.

Good night,
