I especially thank my dear sister in Christ and godly mentor, the original Peaceful Wife, April Cassidy, for being so gracious and loving towards me. April, you have been such an inspiration!:)
and this is to be my last post.
SO LACKING in LOVE,
and that He wants me to learn how to
less judgmental and more compassionate.
"I know well that it is not my great desires that please God in my little soul, what He likes to see is the way I love my littleness and my poverty; it is my blind hope in His mercy, this is my only treasure.... The weaker one is, without desires or virtues, the more ready one is for the operations of this consuming and transforming love.... God rejoices more in what He can do in a soul humbly resigned to its poverty than in the creation of millions of suns and the vast stretch of the heavens."
"Merit is not to be found in doing much or in giving much, but rather in receiving and in loving much. It is said that it is far sweeter to give than to receive, and this is true. But when Jesus wants for Himself the sweetness of giving, it would not be gracious to refuse. Let Him take and give whatever He wants."
"I tell you that it is enough to recognize one's nothingness and to abandon one's self like a child in the arms of God.
- Therese of Liseux

Pardon me for all errors and inconsistencies, dear readers. Those are mine! :P
"It is necessary to consent to remain poor and weak; this is hard... I have always longed to be unknown, I am resigned to being forgotten. It is necessary to count on nothing."
"I understand that love includes all vocations. I realize that all my desires are fulfilled. I have found my vocation. In the heart of the Church, my mother, I will be love." - Saint Therese
“What good will it do you to be able to talk profoundly about the Trinity, if you be wanting in humility and so displease the Trinity? It is certain that learned speeches do not make a man holy and just; it is a virtuous life that makes him pleasing to God.”
