Spiritual Thinking

I borrowed this from Marianne of Haven and Home. I thought it was so beautiful and wanted to share it.

Do you consider yourself a spirtual person? Do you talk to God or a higher power on a regular basis? Does it give you comfort? It does for me, although being the control freak that I am, I often wish I knew what His plan was for me at that very moment. "Live and let God" can be a tough thing to do. But, He has bigger shoulders than I do, so there are times I have to leave the heavy lifting to Him.

I certainly believe but have a very hard time with praying (long story). I find other ways to remain in tune with my faith through singing, Bible readings etc. The personal part is hard for me. That is a beautiful quote.

Prayer is a regular form of mind clearing for me. I need it to get things "in order" in my own head. I don't pray with my husband and I'm bad about doing it with Spencer which is something I'd like to work harder on.

Letting things go and giving up problems to God is something I struggle so much with (yep, I have major control freak issues). I love this beautiful quote.

Truly wonderful words to live by!! HE does have a plan for us ... and I am learning that sometimes I just have to have faith and let HIM take the wheel. Happy autumn..xo HHL

I wish I was more spiritual. I was brought up catholic, my Auntie is a nun, my parents were missionaries, but I feel no connection in a church at all.

i think of myself as a spiritual person
before all other things. it is not
something i 'try' to do, it's who i am.
"through Him all things were made.
without Him nothing was made that
has been made . . ."

thank you for the lovely holocaust
sentiment. it is convicting and

ps. i'm glad you got a good report
from the doctor.
