"If you are searching for God and do not know where to begin, learn to pray. Take the trouble to pray every day. You can pray anytime, anywhere. You can pray at work – work doesn’t have to stop prayer and prayer doesn’t have to stop work. Tell him everything; talk to him. He is our father; he is father to us all, whatever religion we are. We are all created by God, we are his children. We have to put our trust in him and love him, believe in him, and work for him. If we pray, we will get all the answers we need." ~Blessed Mother Teresa
"Then he told them a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary." ~Luke 18:1
Abba! Father! Who loves me so much! Thank you for making me Your child!

|"Misty Day" by Ann L. Krumrein|
Sun of my soul! Thou Saviour dear,
It is not night if Thou be near;
O may no earth-born cloud arise
To hide Thee from thy servant's eyes.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat
falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone;
but if it dies, it bears much fruit."

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, that my soul may praise Thee and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to thee for ever."
"Do not fear then, that your past faithlessness must make you unworthy of God’s mercy. Nothing is so worthy of mercy as utter weakness. He came from heaven to earth to seek sinners, not the righteous; to seek that which was lost – as indeed all were lost if it were not for him. The physician seeks the sick, not the healthy. Oh, how God loves those who come boldly to him in their foul, ragged garments and ask, as of a father, for some garment worthy of him!"
~Archbishop François Fénelon, 1651-1715
