Breath Of Life

Breath Of Life: What is It?
– It is a kiss of God’s out-stretched arms
– It is God’s energy for life
– It is God’s nourishing food
– It is God’s faithfulness to us
– It is God’s ice cream for the soul
– It is God’s lift in our brokeness
– It is God’s strength for our journey
– It is God’s invitation to choose His life
– It is what keeps us alive in Christ
– It is His ability in us to love and serve
– It is His Spirit’s Holy Breath holding us close.

In Stillness, Christ Speaks

In stillness Christ speaks:

Be vigilant.
Be watchful.
Be ready.
Be focused.
Be a light in darkness.
Be alive in Me.
Be eyes for the sightless.
Be ears for the deaf.
Be feet and hands for the needy.
Be true to Me and yourself.
Be wise and true.
Be love for the loveless.
Be in and for Me.

Trust As You Cry Out

“Ask and you shall receive.”
Receive as God lovingly gives.
Gives, however, He feels you need.
Take Courage, He Is very near.

Will you accept suffering for awhile?
I hear your cries.
Persevere, My Love will carry you.
I’ll come, and lift your “drooping spirit”.
You know, I never let you down.

Will you keep trusting Me to assist you.
I have given you some of the help you need.
Next you will find peace of spirit and thanksgiving.
Be aware of My goodness to you, and above all My love.

Just For Today

Just for today is gift enough
Tomorrow will have its own concerns
All in God’s Hands, trust Him.

Just for today is gift enough
Enjoy the Working Moments
Take courage and complain not.

Just for today is gift enough
Thank God for His sustaining Breath
His all-loving Presence and Guide.

Just for today is gift enough
Your strength is the strength He give
Use it for His glory and love.

Just for today is gift enough
To move, to enjoy, to make the best
Of all that makes up the day.

Just for today is gift enough
Be patient, find me in stillness, in beauty
Surrender all-rough and heavy moments.

Just for today is gift enough
Look up and find me at your side
Loving you without end.

Keeper of My Heart

Keeper of my heart,
Draw me inward.

Keeper of my heart,
Bring me peace and harmony.

Keeper of my heart,
Help me be still and let go.

Keeper of my heart,
Unblock all that is not of You.

Keeper of my heart,
Show me the light of Your love.

Keeper of my heart,
Let down my controls that hold me bound.

Keeper of my heart,
Teach me love, wisdom, and truth.

Keeper of my heart,
I lay bare my heart to you.

Keeper of my heart,
With open hands and heart,
I surrender.

Grateful Resignation

Come to me with a heart full of gratitude.
The struggles and disappointments of life
Are a means of growth and strength.
Your journey to Me are mingled with sorrow and joy,
As My life was while on earth.
They can be a means of greater union with Me,
When offered willingly to Me.
Friend, hold your head high, I have chosen you
To follow Me in the midst of pain.
Keep close and beauty will lighten your path,
Will bless your journey in strength of character,
In surprising gifts and grateful heart.

Come to Me with a heart full of gratitude.
Share your gifts however you can.
Attribute all to My faithful care for you.
Patiently hold on when thing don’t go your way,
When tired and feeling down, call on my help.
My light and Spirit will renew you spirit.
Never give up, never give in, keep pushing onward.
Follow My inspirations as you consciously live in My Presence.
When you forget, My reminder will be there.
Remember, remember, I walk with you.
You will see miracles of life surround you.

Come Forth

Come forth Lazarus (La Donna)
Sleep no longer.
My Work is demanding.
My hope is fulfilling.
My love is encompassing.

Say “YES” like Mary
And My life will come alive in you.
Stop holding back.
Fear is not from Me.

Come forth, take My hand.
Don’t let false humility
Keep you two steps behind.

Gifted you are, use them.
Hold tight to My Hand.
Then I can use you.

Be open, Be open,
Give a listening ear.
I have much I want to make known to you.
Will you be attuned to me?

Let My Wordsgift in you.
Push forward, do not hold back.
Open your mind to my tiny whispers.
They will inspire you to go forward
Without fear and doubting.
Doubting is never of Me,
Only loving encounters.

Spouse of God

I am YOUR Beloved.
YOU called me to be thus,
Unworthy though I be.
What do YOU see in me,
That I don’t see in myself?

All I ask is to grow more deeply in love with YOU.
My Divine Spouse, may I never, never fall out of love
With YOU, who has been my constant Lover,
My life and my all.
Where would I be without YOU?

YOU have led me, drawn me throughout life
To places I would never have dreamed possible,
To be more than I could have imagined.
I have been graced to serve YOUR children, adults, sick/dying,
As a spiritual guide, leader in parish and health care.

With a humble, grateful heart, I come before YOU
Asking that YOUR leadership and love will keep me going,
In all the good times and rough ones.
Thanks for the past and what the future holds.
Just, I ask YOU, keep me close and always faithful to YOU, my Spouse.

Sr. La Donna Marie Pinkelman, OSF
