Soul Saturday

I am a convert and received my sacraments in 2010. I was on a spiritual high leading up to and shortly after I converted and our RCIA directors warned us that it would be a long way down if we didn’t stay involved with our parish community.

Fruit of the Holy Spirit // Peace

My life has always been a constant conveyer belt that moves from one thing to the next. After high school I went straight into college where I took at least 20 credits worth of class each semester in order to graduate “on time”

Happy Sunday! Peace be with you this beautiful day.

Today, take a nap under a tree, catch up with an old friend, take a quiet peaceful walk and consider where you find joy in your life, then take a moment to write it down and save it for a rainy day.

Love, Michelle

Fruit of the Holy Spirit // Joy

“Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

Many people take Philippians 4:13 out of context and interpret it to mean “I can do anything as long as I have Jesus at my side.” God’s strength is not something that can be put into a bottle labeled “liquid courage.”

Fruit of the Holy Spirit // Love

Love really is the first and foremost thing that Jesus teaches. It was the foundation of His life with Mother Mary and St. Joseph, it’s the foundation of why the saints became saints, it’s why St. Mother Teresa became a missionary for the poor, it’s “what makes the world go round”!

Lately I’ve been surrounded by individuals in the throes of love-engaged couples and newlyweds to be exact. Interactions with engaged couples always makes me smile.

Fruit of the Holy Spirit // Love

God created each of us in His likeness without miscue. He took delicate care when He designed each of us. He gave us hearts that fill with love and overflow with care
