In my talks with God this week, we reviewed spiritual ingredients. Like any product on the grocery shelf, we have many spiritual ingredients. If we took the time to write them all down, our “label” would look pretty good.
God wanted me to take a look at my list and determine how many of the ingredients were actually being used….ah, now I am defined in a different way! We can go to work on those ingredients that are not being used and talk with God about their purpose and how they fit in with His Plan for our total spiritual being.

The worst has already passed
February 16, 2016 by Abhinav Majumder”
When you feel so lonely and can’t sleep at night,
because everything gives you a fright.
The pain and the sadness takes control,
and once again you’re all alone.
I love darkness, I am afraid of the light, the only light I love staring at, is the moonlight. Source: The worst has already passed | Subdued Flamboyance
I have had some extra time this week to talk with God about this year and the year ahead. I know we will all be seeing many blogs writing about the new year and resolutions and I was going to skip it. Then, God guided me to:
“If they, why not I? If these men and women could become saints, why cannot I with the help of Him who is all-powerful?”
– St. Augustine
Last night, I saw a posting which included a note taped to a dumpster behind a restaurant. The note began: Dear person who is digging through this dumpster for food. The note then went on to include an invitation for the person to please come inside the restaurant for a free meal. The note included a comment about personal value.
We have all seen people looking for food. “Dumpster Diving” became a descriptive term. Sad, but descriptive.[…]

What is wealth? True wealth. Is it Sprawling Mansions, Stately Gowns, Uber-luxurious food? Or is it having a good nights sleep, being well-nourished, being loved?
This remarkable story puts true wealth in perspective. The kind father hopes to teach the son lesson in fulfillment instead is shown a beautiful lesson in perspective and gratitude.
I can so relate to this story. You see, I am constantly learning from my beautiful children. By the simple yet profound questions they ask. Their observations and their comments.
Sometimes just a simple Why from my son or daughter, leaves me stunned and speechless. Why indeed am I doing what I’m doing? Is it purposeful and meaningful? If so, what is the purpose and meaning? Or is it purely out of blind habit? Or to have acceptance of those around me?
Thanks to my children, I am pushed to a better version of myself constantly. Just like the father is in this story.
