Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.
This is the opening of a letter to " those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ"
How often do we really pray this for ourselves and our families and our brothers and sisters of the faith? For as often as we whine, roll our eyes and complain about the lack of peace in our homes, how often do we come before our Lord, Jesus and ask him for the mercy, peace and love that He desires us to have in abundance?
Today, take that time and pray. Pray for the peace. Pray that the verses we have been reading will penetrate first your heart and allow you to overflow with peace and joy to change the environment in your home.
