Take some time on this day to just sit quietly, ponder on the words of God and His saints - reflect on the wonders of this life and all of creation.

 "God in His goodness has granted us to see the sun and its light and allows us to enjoy it.  He will grant us also to enjoy it.  He will grant us also to enjoy His own inaccessible light.  Let the light of the sun be a pledge to us of this, but especially the tranquil light of the holy glory of the Heavenly Father, His only Son given to us, and the spirit of love bestowed upon our hearts."  ~ St. John of Kronstadt

Have you ever looked at the sun and felt God?  Do you notice the glory of His creation and His love in the sunrise and sunset?  Do you feel His love as the rays fall upon your skin, nourishing your health and your soul?  Take a moment next time- look up at the colors of the next sunset and breathe in the air He created to fill your lungs- feel His presence.  Feel His never ending love.

This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  ~ Psalm 118:24
                                                                                    

  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? ~ Psalm 8:3-4

 

Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have Mercy on Me a Sinner
