Family and Friends

Monday Meditation – Family and Friends - 5/15/2023


I am blessed with a number of wonderful family members and friends. Some have been in my life for many years, and others have just graced my life recently. Most of my family and friends are Christian, but a few seem to be a bit far from God.


Of course, I cannot judge these people. There is no way I can know what is in their hearts. They may be very close to God and I just don’t see it. But when I notice that some of these people rarely go to church, or their actions do not seem to follow the teachings of Jesus, I wonder.


It saddens me when it appears these people do not have a relationship with Jesus. Although I am far from perfect, I experience the joy of my faith - of participating in Mass, receiving the Eucharist, and doing other Christian activities. I know I don’t pray as much as I could, but when I do pray I feel close to God. And I hope that my family and friends can also experience that joy.


So, I do the things I can do – I pray for them and try to demonstrate my faith in all I do. I know Jesus loves them as much as He loves me, so if there is anything I can do to bring them a tiny bit closer to Him, I will try to do it.


Are there family and friends in your life who may not have a strong relationship with God? You don’t know of course, but it never hurts to pray for them. Be an example to them, for your actions may be the blessing they need.


Have a blessed Monday!

{Casual up-dos are a good way to pick up the hair from your shoulders. Long, loose hair can get in the way during work or play. When you're out of time, put your hair up in a bun!

|There are people who believe that fashion just means clothing. These people fail to understand that bad hair can very easily ruin a great outfit. Purchase products that suit the type of hair that you have, and invest a few extra minutes in the morning to make sure your hair looks great.

I as well as my pals came analyzing the good pointers from your website while quickly I had a terrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the website owner for those tips. Those young men ended up for this reason glad to read them and have pretty much been loving them. I appreciate you for simply being well helpful and also for picking this form of incredibly good ideas most people are really desperate to discover. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.
