Gospel: Luke 21: 34-36
YOUR HEARTS BE OVERCHARGED WITH THE CARES OF THIS LIFE
Lately, I have been immersed in the care of my plants as I have been captivated by their beauty and the joy it brings. It consumed most of my time and thoughts that it considerably limited my time to prayer and distracted my focus. And I can hardly write anything spiritual for lack of inspiration. I realized all the more why prayer and a heartfelt spiritual communion is so important and indispensable, if we are to remain profoundly connected with God.
What are the things in this world that have captivated our minds and hearts? May we be reminded that God made all these beautiful and wondrous creations for us to enjoy. But God must always come first and He may be glorified through them. May this also remind us of what is passing in this life and what is eternal that matters most.
Dear God, thank you for all your blessings. We glorify your greatness in all your creations. Amen.
