January 22 “You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.  The final test of religion is not “religiousness” but LOVE.”  ~Henry Drummond  19th Century.

January 8 “All difficulties in your life have a purpose.  They are pushing you toward harmony with God’s will.  What we suffer from is immaturity.  If we were mature people, war would be no problem – it would be impossible.” Saying from  “Steps Toward Inner Peace”  by Peace Pilgrim – (28-year pilgrimage – walking more than 25,000 miles)

January 1 “Every stage of our lives offers fresh opportunities.  Responding to divine guidance, try to discern the right time to undertake or relinquish responsibilities without undue pride or guilt.  Attend to what love requires of you, which may not be great busyness.”  Advice and Queries

December 25 “The prophet Isaiah shared this good news from God about the birth of Christ to the people of his day who needed encouragement. “For unto us a child is born, a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 ” We can find in Him our own light- from even our darkest situations by giving us HIS love “. ~Our Daily Bread.
