I'm celebrating my 400th post today by unpacking. It's very glamorous.
The fact that I am unpacking is actually such a wonderful thing. It's been a journey to get here, to this place, and I am proud of my work.
The other day I was feeling a bit down and confused, wondering what plans God has in store for my life journey, and what the next steps are. With my morning coffee in hand, I sat down with my Devotional Bible and flipped it open. The little devotional reading for this day happened to be from Mother Teresa. If you can't take advice from Mother Teresa, I'm not sure who you can take advice from.
Always be faithful in little things, for in them our strength lies. To God nothing is little. He cannot make anything small; they are infinite. Practice fidelity in the least things, not for their own sake, but for the sake of the great thing that is the will of God, and which I respect greatly.
Do not pursue spectacular deeds. We must deliberately renounce all desires to see the fruit of our labor, doing all we can as the gift of your self, the degree of love that you put into each one of your actions.
Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure as long as you have done your best. Neither glory in your success, but refer to God in deepest thankfulness.
If you are discouraged, it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own powers. Never bother about people's opinions. Be humble and you will never be disturbed. The Lord has will me here where I am. He will offer a solution." ~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Catholic Sistas blog. I'll be sharing recipes and crafts there. I hope you'll join me over there to check out some new and fun things. It gives me a chance to join an amazing team of women, and to share my talents to a broader audience. I feel truly honored, and so excited. I think things are going to come together quite nicely in the upcoming months.
Here's to 400 more posts full of life and love.
