Weekend Wisdom: Romans Reminder

Just a little reminder from Romans on how to deal not only with distressful days but with every day.

Rejoice in hope,

Be patient in tribulation,

Be constant in prayer.

Romans 12:12

And yes, I am preaching to me more than you. Last Monday brought the most tribulation I’ve seen in a long time.

Tribulation – noun – distress or suffering resulting from oppression or persecution

So whether life brings you distress called Monday, widowhood, divorce, or any other numerous tribulations, remember Romans 12:12.

Then go buy yourself some chocolate.

Weekend Wisdom: Saint Francis de Sales

Truly charity has no limit; for the love of God has been poured into our hearts by His Spirit dwelling in each one of us, calling us to a life of devotion and inviting us to bloom in the garden where He has planted and directing us to radiate the beauty and spread the fragrance of His Providence.

Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
Hinckley, Ohio

We may as well bloom where we are planted because we were born for such a time as this.

So go radiate beauty and spread fragrance wherever you live and in whatever circumstances you find yourself. Believe me, I need this advice more than you do.

Have a blessed day.
