Good morning... looking ahead again.

This is a typical morning for me. Up early to help with breakfast for my parents and then pray for guidance and use my mind to think of how I want to use this day that I've been given.


I really don't get into particulars though usually. I have a general idea of the specific things that need to get done but I am talking more about what my attitude is going to be toward whatever presents itself to me today.


Number one, I always ask myself "am I prepared for the unexpected?" whether "good" or "bad".


I pray for a peaceful and productive day. Productive in the sense that it is leading toward greater independence and freedom of mind, heart and soul.


I have a specific prayer each day to be a good steward of whatever financial and material gifts I have been given to work with and that I have the grace and opportunity to earn more responsibility and wisdom to make good use of them.


I look toward my "heavenly" family, God and the Angels and Saints for their guidance and prayers.


I look toward my "earthly" family, friends and neighbors for the opportunity to practice Faith, Hope and above all Charity in service to God and others.


I look toward people I may disagree with for the grace of better mutual understanding.


Okay that's enough for now. I could go on and on but I hope you get the picture. I take a little interest in the day ahead and the opportunities it has for me.


God bless you and have a great day! Here's to hoping for the best and working for God's Peaceful Kingdom here on earth.

I believe that practicing the Faith in Jesus Christ as the Savior of Mankind is not a matter of mere knowledge. I'll be honest. I think that the grace of faith in Christ is nothing short of a miracle

How I handle disappointments

Basically, I don't handle them myself for sure. Every time we make an effort to better ourselves unselfishly (i.e. for the benefit of others) then we shouldn't be ashamed if we fall short sometimes. G
