Mercy

Happy are those who are merciful to others, God will be merciful to them…. My favorite of the verses from the Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount. #Beatitudes, #SermonOnTheMount. #woodenstatutes #wood #quote #Bible #BibleVerse, #mercy

Kind words

Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their effects can be miraculous. … In my teens @ a retreat, we were told to put our goals down

. I imagined being a billionaire & then president before Trump. I quickly imagined being asked if you make your goal but go to hell. Are you success. I wanted to beat them to their punch. I wrote, go to heaven. No, they wanted to know what we would be majoring in college or whatever. At the end of the retreat, a nun actually thanked me for sharing my goal, and when sober it actually is my goal. #words #quote #miracle #goal #God #goals #heavan #hell #miraculous_effects #kindness #Nun

Hatred of money

If the love of money is the root of evil, then is the hatred of money the foundation of virtue?

Life Without Effort

This is one of my favorite quotes from St. Francis of Assisi (my hero) because it could be applied universally.
