I don’t often think about what I will be writing on my blog. I usually start somewhere random and lead to somewhere completely different. Just so I don’t waste anyones time I often erase the first few paragraphs just so that I go straight to the point. This time I erased 5 paragraphs and still don’t know how I got to this point…
I take my family for granted. I love them and they have helped shape me to be the young women I am now today. They have been with me in my good times and in my bad times. They were there when I needed someone to talk to or someone I could laugh with.
We live in a society where broken families is the norm. What can I do to change this movement? I am only one person, unmarried and only know the life a happy married couple. Don’t get me wrong, I know many people with a broken marriage but I have never seen the whole process with my own eyes, I have never experienced it.
This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about especially because we are in the year of mercy. Mercy, a very strong word. At the conference I went to someone said Mercy has a face and name. Jesus. And it’s so true, Jesus is merciful and loves it when we ask for forgiveness. He’s always waiting for us with His arms wide open. He wants us to come back to Him. Mercy, showing compassion, knowing we are loved and loving others. This is what I will work on. Love and mercy go hand in hand. If you love you have mercy and you have mercy you have love.
Love, love, love this is a big part of my personal life and the ministry I do. Love, love, love, be the person God created you to be. Don’t be afraid of failure, don’t be afraid to fall. Love is a sacrifice, love is hard but it’s worth it. My love for the Jesus in the Eucharist has been expanding. God has been stretching me heart
