Faith invites us to trust even without seeing the whole picture.
Of course we all yearn to know and understand fully.
As we journey we can only see a small part of who God is and
how our life unfolds with its ups and downs, its joys and sorrows.
No matter how much we study and pray, we will never fully
understand the divine mystery that lies within and beyond us.
All that is required is that each day we put our trust and place our hand
in God`s holy hands and with confidence and hope get on with our loving
and caring of His people. In doing that, we will find peace, joy and happiness.
Giving Thanks to God.
I give thanks today for the gift of life.
I give thanks today for the courage to meet whatever happens.
I give thanks today for the hope that all will be well.
I give thanks today for the shared friendship of people.
I give thanks today for the compassion to reach out and help.
I give thanks today for the gift of faith.
I give thanks today to God for His presence in my life. Amen.
