Love Thy Neighbor 

Sometimes I feel like just leaving everything and going somewhere quite, and starting all over again. But I know that can never happen, or maybe it can I don’t know but what I do know is,  I can only start to live in the moment each day so that’s what I am trying to do but it’s hard. And I say that because I find there are not much people you can talk to about our lord and really have a good conversation about him. This world is full of temptation and it’s our cross we have to walk everyday but, we do need some help. Each day we face a lot, and when you go home and close that door what is it you are thinking about? Do you play your day in your head or you think about what you should have done different?  When you meet someone for the first what is it you talk about? Is it about the lord Jesus cause that will be crazy. Try this the next time you meet someone or trying to befriend a person or just in general, make your first topic about God, or at the end of your conversation say God bless, look at it like you trying to find a connection with this person through God. Every one of us will say I am my own person and I think for myself, but when you look at it we are all followers of something , what are you a following?  The person next to you, busy trying to look like the next person or god?  As I say we need one another. Ask yourself what can I do to  help my neighbor? Getting them something to eat? Take care of the poor? Taking the time to really listen to someone? And when you do, will you take it to the  grave or will you tell the first person you meet ? When I was younger I had a friend in my class, and I ask my mother if I can give her something, and she said if you are going to do this you can’t let your four fingers know what your thumb is doing, and I say ok because I understand what she were saying. So what are you willing to do each day in living your best life on this earth ? Every morning look in the mirror and ask as a child of God what can I do for my neighbor today. God is good all the time.

Staying Focus

Today I am on my 4th day of lent and I am doing great, being  there’s  so little I can eat at this time. But one thing that help, is me preparing my meals at the end of the week so far it’s been easy. I am also doing  the  30 Min. Full Body HIIT Workout | Day 01 – 30 Day Full Body Burnout and I’m trying to stay focus with it because it’s getting a bit hard.

IMG_1907Last night I made  a little snack after dinner and it was good. 1 green or red apple peel and slice and 1 teaspoon of honey, hope you all have nice weekend God is good.                                                                                                                             

Fasting

This month is a special time for prayer, it’s the beginning of lent which I think everyone should take part in whether you are Catholic or not. The Lord our God give up his life for all our sins so surely we can sacrifice 40 days and stay in faith and pray. I was reading this on (Christopher J. Hale). And I quote, In an annual Lenten message, the pope writes, “whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others, no place for the poor. God’s voice is no longer heard, the quiet joy of his love is no longer felt, and the desire to do good fades.” He continues that, “We end up being incapable of feeling compassion at the outcry of the poor, weeping for other people’s pain, and feeling a need to help them, as though all this were someone else’s responsibility and not our own.”But when we fast from this indifference, we can began to

feast on love. In fact, Lent is the perfect time to learn how to love again. Jesus—the great protagonist of this holy season—certainly showed us the way. In him, God descends all the way down to bring everyone up. In his life and his ministry, no one is excluded.

“What are you giving up for Lent?” It’s a question a lot of people will get these next few days. If you want to change your body, perhaps alcohol and candy is the way to go. But if you want to change your heart, a harder fast is needed. This narrow road is gritty, but it isn’t sterile. It will make room in ourselves to experience a love that can make us whole and set us free.
