The Divine Path of Abundance

Continue down the path that makes you feel fulfilled. Those who continue on an unrewarding path
for the sake of only monetary gain
are displaying a lack of trust in life. Continuing in such a mistrustful way
will only bring impoverishment.
Following one’s heart,
continuing on one’s divine path can bring abundance.

Extraordinary Ordinary

If I could give you information of my life, it would be to show how
a woman of very ordinary ability has been led by God in strange
and unaccustomed paths to do In His service what He has done in
her. And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done
all, and I nothing.

Come What May

Let come what comes, and accommodate yourself to that,

whatever it is. If good mental images arise, that is fine. If bad
mental images arise, that is fine, too. Look on all of it as equal, and

make yourself comfortable with whatever happens.

Out of the depths, I cry to you, Lord!
My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow;
have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.
May your Word of truth comfort and strengthen my soul.
You are the Resurrection and the Life.
He who believes in you will live, even though he dies!

Be my Light, my Strength, my Hope, and my Peace. Amen.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;

the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know
the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at
a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He
did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that
He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may
be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him

forever in the next. Amen.

Where the Path of Life Leads Us

Laughter isn’t even the other side of tears.
It is tears turned inside out.
Truly the suffering is great, here on earth.
We blunder along, shredded by our mistakes,

bludgeoned by our faults.
Not having a clue where
the dark path leads us.
But on the whole,
we stumble along bravely,
don’t you think?

O, our Father the Sky, hear us
and make us strong.
O, our Mother the Earth, hear us
and give us support.
O Spirit of the East,
send us your Wisdom.
O Spirit of the South,
may we tread your path.
O Spirit of the West,
may we always be ready for the long journey.
O Spirit of the North, purify us
with your cleansing winds.
