51 years old this month and here are a few thoughts
I've been ruminating!
"Finding joy in life is a genuinely religious form of humility." I must humble myself to be thankful (and content) with the circumstances and things God has given me and only then is joy able to show its face. Getting Involved with God -Ellen Davis (pg. 110)
"Perhaps true maturity and a growing faith show up not in our ability to stand up straight and blameless, but in our willingness to turn, again and again, back to the glory of God." http://emilypfreeman.com/blog/ -Emily Freeman I believe this turning back (towards each other) again and again needs to happen in marriage also.
"A catechetical teaching on sin states, 'Sin is any willful thought, word, deed or omission against the law of God.' Omission refers here to offenses we commit by leaving things out, ignoring what needs to be done and how we might unthinkingly harm others.' What have we glossed over today? What are my sins of omission? What have I failed to see?" What am I failing to do, that He is asking? Sins of omission-this keeps haunting my thoughts since I read this phrase. Proclaim Jubilee! -Marie Harris (pg. 45,68)
"Unfortunately, we are encouraged, even trained to get attention when the renewing secret of life is to give attention."
The Book of Awakening -M. Nepo (pg. 206)
