How can I keep from singing

leave a comment »

My life flows on in endless song,
Above earth’s lamentation.
I hear the real though far-off hymn,
That hails a new creation.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I’m clinging,
It sounds an echo in my soul,
How can I keep from singing?

What though the tempest round me roars,
I know the truth, it liveth,
What though the darkness round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I’m clinging,
Since love is lord of heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smooths,
Since first I learned to love it.

The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,
A fountain ever springing;
All things are mine since I am his,
How can I keep from singing?

How do I know God's will for me?

leave a comment »

Fr Paul Boudreau suggests need no further than Scripture, the Church and my own personal history.

Finding the will of God is really important for those of us who love the Lord and want to live our lives according to His purpose for us.

We have the Bible, the Word of God that "was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4)

By prayer we can discern ‘what is the will of God and obtain the endurance to do it’ (Catechism of the Catholic Church no 2826).

We already know the will of God.
It is spoken somewhere deep within us, in the hidden part of our hearts where God is known and encountered.
It is where God’s love is generated in us, in our strongest desires.

through the crooked ways and the straight,
the successes and the failures.

People have a natural desire for happiness.
This desire is of divine origin:
God has placed it in the human heart in order to draw man to the One who alone can fulfill it.
Catechism no. 1718

Look in my heart.
What is my true desire?
Follow that desire; do what I love.

I love to share my love, my knowledge, my encouragement and my smiles.

Book: My first new testament

leave a comment »

Happy Children’s Day 2011!
The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day in 1925.

Here is my gift to all my friends of Blueroselady, especially chidren! We are all children of God. Smile!

Book: My first new testament: Bible stories.
Twin Sisters productions.

[to insert book cover image]

We bought this book for our niece 1st birthday, but I realized that there are still things that I could learn from this lovely book.
Grown-ups can always read children book, to have a nostalgic, to re-learn things we have forgotten, to be child-like again.

God gave us the gift of His son Jesus.
Anything is possible with God.

The wise men worshipped Jesus.
God wants us to worship Jesus too!
Blueroselady: even the wise men, who are definitely much wiser than me, worshipped Jesus, I must honour Jesus.

Jesus loved all of the little children.
Jesus loved me!

I will treat people the way I want to be treated.
I will follow the Golden Rule.
If you want your brother or sister to be sweet and kind,
then you should be sweet and kind.

You need to believe and trust God.
God’s plan is perfect!

Grace = God forgives us.
You just need to ask God to forgive you and He will.

Thank you God for forgiving me,
Thank you God for your amazing grace!
