Recently with all of the unsettled feelings I have been having my faith has been a bit shaky. I have felt very poor in spirit and have really been leaning on my friends to keep me grounded spiritually. I believe that God has really been watching out for the monsters lately as their momma has been checked out.

If I can let go of the despair and resentment I am feeling then I can see that there is a method to the madness that my life has become. This is what I work toward every day. This is the solid ground that I am able to find and stand on when I give all of the worries over to God and just do the next thing in front of me.

I carry this quote around with me just about every where I go. It helps me see that things do make more sense when I slow down and work on faith and not my own will.

The fruit of silence is prayer.

The fruit of prayer is faith.

The fruit of faith is love.

The fruit of love is service.

The fruit of service is peace.

~Mother Theresa
