I appreciate all the feedback from everyone! I know that God has a wonderful plan laid out for me, and I must be patient and wait my turn. I've not been very good about making it to Mass lately, and I feel the devil trying to get into my heart and change my way of thinking. He's a sneaky beast... But today starts anew! Today, on the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I give myself back to Jesus and Mary! I'm not going to let the devil win. With God in my heart, nothing is impossible.
Love you all so much.. Thank you from "my bottom heart" (as my childhood priest, Fr. Badavowski used to say)
IMHO, there are four types of beauty (first to last): spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical. We are each blessed with all four, and chose our own order of importance. Be yourself and the Lord will do the rest - it takes patience, though. The healtiest relationships are built upon these four beauties, and how we cherish them. The mirror of your soul is the most important - it is strong, healthy, and beautiful.
