Hi! Welcome to Monday!
Let's Begin This Week with a Hug!
Today, I invite you to spend the next ~4 minutes with me to hear a special inspirational message from the Hugs devotional. It's here to inspire and help guide you through the rest of your week!
And after the video finishes, you’re invited to take a few moments to sit quietly and reflect on what you heard.
If you'd like to learn more about the Door Rosary that is hanging on the doorknob behind Kathleen in the video, click here.
May Christ's peace be with you as you prepare for the week ahead! Please know I'm praying for you!
Carrying The Load
"God blesses the people who patiently endure testing. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him." - James 1:12
In the 1940s, actresses of African-American descent were relegated to bit parts. The movies, it seemed, weren't ready for someone like Lena Horne.
But Lena was ready for them. She parlayed a ton of talent and beauty into a career as a leading lady, unheard of in those days for a woman of color. In look. ing back on her career, Lena was philosophical. She said, "The size of your burden is never as important as the way you carry it."
The next time you face a heavy burden, remember that there is a good way and a bad way to carry every load. The best way is to keep working, keep believing, and never give in to discouragement.
Because, as Lena Horne correctly observed, no load is too heavy if you discover the right way to carry it - but no load is light if you don't.
"Trouble is a tunnel through which we pass and not a brick wall against which we must break our heads." - Claire Weeks
