A is For: Appreciation

WELCOME TO PRAY TO GOD TODAY'S APRIL A-Z CHALLENGE!

     My Theme for the A-Z challenge is a very wide open spectrum. It's gonna be God. Everything with God and about God. His blessings, His Love, Theology, His son, His Saints and Angels. I have deiced this because their is so much I can talk about. I'm not putting a cap on what I talk about for now. This leads us to A. For Appreciation. I want to appreciate God more.

A is indeed for Appreciation. 

God is So GREAT, and WONDERFUL he deserves every praise and worship we can give him. How many of us appreciate God for waking us up this morning? How many of us Appreciated having food this morning? How many of us appreciated that 'Hi' from our neighbor or the Have a Great Day from a family member or friend?

God fills our days with WONDERFUL things we can appreciate. But yet, so many of us don't. God is in the center of everyday. He makes everything happen has they happen for one Good Reason: That We may learn. That we may learn appreciation for God, and that we may learn his Love for us. To find him in our Daily lives. 

God Deserves ALL APPRECIATION !!! He is a Great God! He plants good things, wonderful things in our lives that we aren't wiling to see. We need to be grateful, appreciative more of Gods Love and forgiveness for us!

Do you appreciate God? 

Imagine a life without him. We would be lost, scattered, no where to go, Lost sheep. We need God, and so we need to be appreciative of everything he does for us.

Tell God you appreciate him today :D

  6. What a great way to start a new month! He's taking care of my family in ways that I find remarkable and miraculous. He knows our needs before we utter them and has a plan to meet them before we even know them. This was a blessing to read!

  11. For me, giving thanks comes easier than simply praising God for who God is...this is something I've been trying to work on.

    1. Praising God for who he is, isn't something most people think of right away! Thats why I shone light on it!

Forgive... Not Seven times but Seventy Seven times

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22 
It's very hard to forgive. Forgiveness is essential to our life here on earth. Jesus gave us the perfect example of forgiveness while he was on earth. Jesus loved us so much that he bore all our sins on the cross that goes before us. Every wrong we have done; every pain has become  A LOT LIGHTER because Jesus bore it before us.
Jesus is asked by his own, disciples, how many times should they forgive. Because they know that they have to forgive, and they know they everyone does wrong, but how much is enough? We need to draw a line right? No.
Jesus tells us that we shouldn't just forgive seven times. He told us to forgive 77 times. Or 77 X 7 times. Which is a more perfect number. Jesus told us that we must forgive has many times that someone does wrong. …

Feed My Sheep

During this Easter season we are given the opportunity to listen and reflect on the word of God from the Gospel of John. For the third and final time this weekend, we will hear a post-resurrection appearance of Christ to his apostles. It is through these appearances that Christ proves his resurrection, dispels the darkness of doubt in his apostle’s mind, and commissions them to make known the love and joy of these events to the world.

The Gospel this weekend tells us that after the death and resurrection of Christ, the disciples have returned to fishing, as they once did before they followed Christ. These skilled fishermen do not catch anything all night, until a man comes on the shore of the beach and tells them to cast their net on the right side of the boat, and they catch an abundance of fish, that the net should have broke, but it did not. After they caught these fish, the apostles realized that it was the Lord, who has now called them a second time from their job of fishing to …

Fishers of Men

I have had the pleasure recently to start teaching again the First Penance and Eucharist at my Parish. It is always  a great time for me to know that I am laying the seeds of God in their heart and knowing that I am preparing them for a once-in-life-time event.  I love seeing the kids who are earnest to learn and who want to be there.

     In todays' Gospel, we are presented with an overview of Jesus life. Jesus does three distinctive things, that Matthew wraps up very quickly. He teaches, proclaims, and heals. These three unfold for us what we can expect from Jesus during his life time.  However, before he begins his own life and mission one thing had to happen- the Death of John the Baptist. John, we know, was the last of the Prophets and his main mission was to make sure people were finally ready for the King  to come. Jesus, therefore, couldn't start until the paths were made straight.

     Jesus mission on earth is the great light that has appeared in the darkness. In…
