Life and Purpose

I have heard the expression that life is more than who we are. It moves on whether or not we live. Therefore, why are we here? I believe that we are here and alive because we each have something unique and special about us. Each individual has a place and holy work to do that…

The Meaning of Life

Like flowers in a field we are God’s creation meant to shine with the light of the Holy Spirit. He knows our every petal as we give thanks for his glory. We are his children and our lives are meant for charity as we are all endowed with gifts that only grow as we give…

Mystery is the Catalyst For Imagination

Here are some quotes about some of life’s mysteries. 🙂 “Like everyone else I feel the need of relations and friendship,of affection, of friendly intercourse,and I am not made of stone or iron,so I cannot miss these things without feeling,as does any other intelligent man, a void and deep need.I tell you this to let…
