Bring Love Into Your Home


Mother Teresa Quote

I love this quote by Mother Teresa. It is a challenging reminder that love begins at home. How we treat those closest to us – our family and friends – matters. It is so much easier to feel compassion for those “out there” than it is to have compassion on those whose faults and foibles are in our face day in and day out. (Please tell me I am not alone in this!)

Today or sometime this week, lets spend some time reflecting and examining how we treat our family and those around us. Do we speak kindly to our husbands and children or do we lose our patience easily or speak sarcastically? Do we make time to stop and listen to them or do we push them aside so we can cross off our to-do list? (That’s something I am guilty of this many times, I’m afraid.) Let us ask God to help us see how we can truly bring love into our homes, and have compassion on those closest to us who may annoy or bother us.

God bless!

It has feels like it has been forever since I’ve participated in Sunday Snippets! Now that I have graduated, I am happy to be back. Hopefully, I will be able to get back into regular and consistent blogging and participating here. I missed it!

So, to play catch up, here is the rundown of my post from the last few months:

God of Mercy and Compassion

This gorgeous Lenten Hymn is more of a prayer than a song:

P.s., please say a prayer for my cousin’s wife who is battling cancer. It went from her lungs to hip to neck and to now her brain. Thank you.
