Prayer, Faith and Love

Thursday, March 05, 2009

"Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." (Matthew 7:7)

How many times have we asked? Have we tried seeking for Him? I mean, serious search... When we found Him, have we knocked?

This Lenten 2009, we both seek spiritual and physical health. We aim of returning to God the borrowed gifts, our body and soul, at its best. How do we do that?

SP helped me not only with the healthy choices for the best of my body. I still have yet to attain it. SP has also helped me gain many friends... I may not have met them personally but I believe with faith that one day, Jesus will make us meet. The initial step I have made to gain a healthy body is coming back to SP after bidding farewell sometime in 2007. Coming back in a different mode with a sincere thought of nurturing my faith through prayers and friendships. My SP friends motivated me to increase my disciplines of thought and success.

At Catholic Critters, we pray together, in faith and in love. United, we take control of all the temptations of sin especially of the unhealthy choices in life. In prayer, faith and love, guided by Jesus Christ through our Mother Mary, we clasp our hands to reach out to the many that having a healthy body and soul, we can become successful in spreading His Gospel.

I am grateful to all our members who are doing their best to grow in faith and love.

In Catholic Critters, I met my special friend, Cheryl Jane, who I will meet sometime in the future. Our Mother Mary planned our meeting in SP and in 54-Day Rosary Novena thread. Through Mary, we share each other the many coincidences, likes, prayers, weight goals, number of children, hobbies and even age. Mushroom is the only difference! In knowing her, I came across many signs in prayer and in faith... And, she is aware of them. Thank you, Cheryl Jane. I received many signs this past weeks that we will meet each other soon, VERY SOON! Our families can play together in the parks and we can gaze the sky and count the stars without fear... we will stare at the moon and tell stories to our children. We can ride bikes as long as we can... yes, during summertime... and on the not so cold weathers.

In love with our families, in complete trust in God, we pray that our SP goals and meetings with the rest of its members will bring us our ultimate goal and thereby meet God in His glory... in His time.

I ask God for friends, and He gave me many. I seek for His presence and I found Him in my these friends. I knocked, and He showed me His heart FULL OF LOVE.

    This is a beautiful expression of love of the Lord & the Blessed Mother. You speak from the heart in very touching well written words of encouragement. I felt drawn to read this blog entry because of the title as faith, hope & love are the virtues I always pray for on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Aves when praying the rosary. My SparkPage statement carries this theme. Please visit my Page anytime.
    Thank you for your faithful leadership in the 54-day novenas. They are so meaningful to those praying & those being prayed for.
    And I'm curious, what country are you living in?
    May God grant you many blessings & an abundance of peace.

    Hello my friend. I just saw this blog and had to read it when I saw the title.
    I had no idea I would be mentioned in it!
    I feel the same, though.
    I feel very blessed to have found you and to be sharing such a unique, international, pen-pal friendship with you!
