Letters to His Roses

Everything is Grace

Everything is Grace

Dear Roses,

I recently read this short reflection in a daily Catholic Wisdom email I receive. I took to heart Father Traynor’s statement that the most important question in each and every moment is “How is God loving me right now?”. What kisses am I being sent from Heaven in this moment?

What a perspective shift it has been to ask myself this question throughout the day!

How it changes everything to see all of life as gift of love chosen just for my heart from the Heart of the Father. He is truly a loving and gift-giving Father and in the sacrament of this present moment His freely given gift of the grace that will sustain me is flowing upon me.

I am reminded of St. Therese’s statement… “Everything is Grace and so I choose ALL!”

Dear St. Therese, pray for us that we may have eyes to see how God is truly loving us in every moment, courage to open wide the doors of our hearts to receive all He is offering, and trust to be able with you to exclaim “Everything is grace and so I choose all!” Amen.

Together in His Heart,

Laura 🌹

 

“The most important question to be able to answer in a concrete, specific, personal way at any moment is, “How is God loving me right now?” This is our anchor. Without it, we are adrift amid forces around us and within us that are incomprehensible. The particular, personal love of God for us in this moment is our life, our existence, and our all. Apart from this love, we are nothing and can do nothing.”

  1. I love this. I’ve been feeling God’s love every day with Rocco. Even better to keep asking all day how is God loving me now? ♥️🙏🏻
