Morning Offering: 10. 03. 21

Today’s Reflection: I never tire of reading this, nor sharing it — My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that, if I do this, You will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for You are ever with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone. Amen. — Thomas Merton.

Today’s Reflection: May the God of gentleness be with us, caressing us with sunlight and rain and wind. May God’s tenderness shine through us to warm all who are hurt and lonely. May the blessing of gentles be with us. May the God of wonder be with us, delighting us with sunrise and sunset, enchanting our senses, filling our hearts, giving us wide-open eyes that we may see the splendor in both the humble and majestic. — Catholic prayer site.

Today’s Reflection: Show me your face, O Christ.
Bless me with encounter.
Reveal your glory in my tea, in my work, in my Bible.
May I proclaim your nearness,
Your story, which is also my story.
Let me live in you and you in me.
Amen. — Andy Otto.

Morning Offering: 09. 24. 21

Today’s Reflection: Take five minutes today to go outside and just sit still. Listen to the sounds you hear… maybe you’ll just hear cars, lawnmowers and radios… try to hear the sounds underneath that surface noise, the sound of the wind in the trees, birds singing and animals buzzing… take a moment to remind yourself about your connection to the earth and to all living things… how the trees will inhale our air and make it clean and healthy… how the rain will provide us with water and help to grow the food that sustains us…take a moment to be grateful for the air you breathe, the beauty that surrounds you and the earth that provides us with nourishment and life… — Unattributed.

Today’s Reflection: O Lord, Thank you for all the good gifts you have given us….
For the fine, delicate balance of the natural world.
For the amazing variety of fruit seeds and grains.
For the beauty of autumn when the greens turn yellow, gold and crimson.
Lord, help us to enjoy this beautiful season. Amen. — Unattributed.
