What Matters Most?

Life pushes forward by cycles: days, weeks and years; autumn, spring, fall, and summer; infancy, teens, middle age and senior citizen; joys, sorrows, and resilience. At each of these junctures in our life, it’s important that we just don’t blindly follow the herd into the next series of events, missing our big AHA! We need to pause, REFECT, REFOCUS and RECOMMIT to what matters most. And what does matter most? In the end when all the seasons and life cycles are completed there is one question for evaluation: How did you fulfill your life’s purpose? We are put on this earth for a special reason. We are put on this earth to achieve our great self and to live out of purpose, our destiny! We have one life and we don’t want to waste it as we run from one day to the next. It’s a time for Reflection – Where are you on your journey? Are you happy? What strengths have you been given? How are you using your particular gifts? What makes your soul sing? It’s a time to Refocus – What exactly is your life’s purpose? How are you measuring up? Did God make a good investment in creating you? What are you giving back to your earthly and heavenly communities? It’s a time for Recommitment – Your journey is not yet finished. Take a deep breath, buckle up for the rest of the ride and renew your commitment to your answering “yes” to God’s daily invitations. Making sense out of your life and putting its pieces together well is no simple matter. It’s a task... read more

Let’s Be Children At Christmas and Throughout the Year!

At Christmas time I believe in the things that children do. Even Jesus encouraged us to become like little children, likening it to the kingdom of heaven. So what do the children believe? “I believe with English children that holly placed in windows will protect our homes from evil. I believe with Swiss children that the touch of edelweiss will charm a person with love. I believe with Italian children that La Befana is not an ugly doll but a good fairy who will gladden the hearts of all. I believe with Greek children that coins concealed in freshly baked loves of bread will brings good luck to anyone who finds them. I believe with German children that the sight of a Christmas tree will lessen hostility among adults. I believe with French children that lentils soaked and planted in a bowl will rekindle life in people who have lost hope. I believe with Dutch children that the horse Sleipner will fly thorough the sky and fill the earth with joy. I believe with Swedish children that Jultomte will come and deliver gifts to the poor as well as to the rich. I believe with Finnish children that parties held on St. Stephen’s Day will erase sorrow. I believe with Danish children that the music of a band playing from a church tower will strengthen humankind. I believe with Bulgarian children that sparks from a Christmas log will create warmth in human souls. I believe with American children that the sending of Christmas cards will build friendships. I believe with all children that there will be peace on earth.”(Daniel... read more

Don’t Forget

During this busy season, more than ever we seem to be operating from lists – gift lists, grocery lists, social lists, etc. We don’t want to overlook any festive touch or special person. We are all terribly forgetful. None of us is immune. But as we are swept up into the overwhelming festivities, let us not forget the simplest of Christmas messages: that the Lord comes to us as a tiny helpless infant born in a lowly stable. Oh, come oh come, Emmanuel. Oh, come be “God with us”. He comes to find us, holding our hands reminding us of what really matters, and that we are not walking this road alone. We’re walking with the Lord who is right at our side. The Lord walks with us as a partner and mentor who want to see us succeed and who understand that it’s going to take us awhile. Now what more could we ask. After all, God is with us and for us! Let us drop whatever it is we are so busy about these days to accept this small seemingly insignificant birth. Let us not lose this unpretentious message searching for something massive and overwhelming. God is not demanding large lavish celebrations and enormous blinking light displays of faith this year. All God wants is to walk with us as a partner and friend. As a true friend and partner we trust God, talk to the Lord and listen to his tugs on our heartstrings. Talk to God about the real stuff of our lives because God cares more than anyone else…and God knows the way home... read more
