How can one best “Rejoice in the Lord”?
Not fearing what the circumstances will be.
By experiencing the Love of God touching you,
And not being afraid to share the Good News.
By being a spokesman for our gratuitous God.
By using the gift of sight to make aware God’s goodness,
To others and to your family and friends along the way.
“Rejoice in the Lord! Again, I say Rejoice!”
Be thankful for the many, many gifts—some great and some small.
He desires with all His Heart to share gifted life to us.
Even when we are not as aware as we could be,
He continues to bless us in the ordinary days of our life.
Today, the middle of Lent, can we make a conscious effort
To live our daily moments praising, and rejoicing in the Lord?
Rejoice and focus! Rejoice and focus! Rejoice and focus!
