Trials..........February 19







"Trials help greatly to detach us from earth. They make us look to God,
rather than to this world."

St. Therese of Lisieux

What a treasured holy card. It is good to gaze at a holy card like this and just meditate on how much He suffered for us.
Thankyou, Micki!

What a wonderful meditation! Thank God for our trials! The will of our God will only take us where the grace of our God will protect us.

this is one of my favorite images of Jesus. Although it is sad, it reminds me how much He loved us to go to the point of such suffering. How precious each of us are to Him. May I learn to always Thank Jesus for His Love, Faithfulness and giving me Salvation! Let Me die to myself more each day so that it is Jesus that is born in me! John K.

Stephanie - So many things to keep close to our hearts during Lent!

diddleymaz - Glad you can find wisdom and thoughtfulness.

Diane S. - Gazing and meditating...what a great idea.

Anonymous - It takes a great person to thank God for our trials. Thanks.


John K. - Yes, could we go so far also. For me....I doubt it, or at least, not without complaints. Forgive me Jesus.
