A Worthwhile Use of Time!

A Worthwhile Use of Time!

When "Rooted in Love" came onto my path, I'd recently made the difficult decision to leave a well-fitting office job to work at home to better provide needed flexibility for my children. Donna-Marie's book became a warm hug during this transition, welcoming me back to the hearth and offering rich food for thought in determining my future course. I especially appreciate the many personal stories Donna-Marie includes, from a tenuous airplane flight that provided an opportunity to share her faith with a frightened passenger, to other ordinary moments that turned extraordinary from just a kind word or a smile. Donna-Marie is a welcomed reminder in this despairing world of the power women behold when we embrace our vocation of nurturing others and, thereby, present the face of Christ. I am so grateful for this treasure of a book, and to Donna-Marie for taking pen to paper and opening her soul for our benefit.

Opportunities for Grace!

I wholeheartedly believe that God allows us umpteen opportunities for his grace each day. All of the challenges and frustrations we face can be beneficial occasions to turn to God and ask for his grace for ourselves and for the people we are dealing with. No matter what is happening around us and within us, we always have recourse to prayer. Prayer is a gift that can never be taken from us. As long as we are conscious (and even if not our hearts may be praying!), whatever is happening in our lives, we always--and I mean always--have recourse to prayer.

Excerpt from Rooted in Love

The driving forces behind prayer are faith and the love of God. Love will overcome our times of dryness or even laziness in prayer. Our perseverance in prayer will reap the rewards of heaven. St. Alphonsus Liguori tells us, "Those who pray are certainly saved; those who do not pray are certainly damned!" (Del gran mezza dello preghiera). Maybe we had better step up our prayer lives!
