Thoughts during Lent.

I've been thinking a lot lately. I have a lot of friends with very different opinions than mine. Some more liberal. Some more crass. Some more sexual. Some more inappropriate.

Typically, I enjoy hearing others' opinions, as long as they're not on a freaking soap box acting like theirs is the only opinion that matters or is correct. I like the challenge in the conversation that differences in opinion bring. Hashing it out..having an organized and adult conversation..what I don't like is feeling judged or silly for my own opinions.

But I should own it. All the time. Embrace my views and lifestyle and opinions and hold true to them.

It's hard sometimes...don't you think? When did we all get so bossy and opinionated that we feel the need to force our views on others? What happened to loving the person, supporting them, and being kind and temperate?

This is something I struggle with, and has become my focus this third week of Lent.

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.-- Mother Teresa

Do not put your faith in what statistics say until you have carefully considered what they do not say.-- William W. Watt

Faith is courage; it is creative while despair is always destructive.-- David S. Muzzey

Faith is not a delicate flower which would wither away under the slightest stormy weather.-- Mahatma Gandhi

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.-- Saint Augustine

Faith makes the discords of the present the harmonies of the future. -- Robert Collyer

Fear can keep us up all night long, but faith makes one fine pillow.-- Philip Gulley

and this is my personal favorite...

Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.--Hardy D. Jackson

You Are More..

My Mom shared this video with me (thanks Mom) & I really liked it. I think we all have guilt or feel broken from time to time - and it is good to be reminded that we are loved any way..
