Order Your Soul


"Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence." ~~~St. Augustine

The KEY word here is TRUST. At times we simply lack trust...If your heart and mind is full of 'woe is me' then you are lacking in trust.

Embracing a spirit of Joy is not dependant on things going well with us. If anything it is the opposite we live our Joy irrespective of our situations. Whether it be fair or foul we MUST show and share JOY with others..Who wants to see a 'long faced Christian?' To paraphrase St. Teresa of Avila.

Good reflection TY Alexandra:)

Peace & much love to you:)

Marie xooxoxo PS: I just wrote a piece on Sarah Palin:) God bless you.

Thanks Marie. I always love your feedback. It's the SPIRIT of joy, yes! Embrace the spirit of joy. This is so different than just feeling joy from good times.
