Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things. - Philippians 4:8

“Life can only be understood backward; but it must be lived forwards.” - Soren Kierkegaard
This leads me to reflect on how many people live imprisoned by their pasts, shackled by guilt, their mistakes and failures, their omissions, and so forth. Life is a journey and we will get nowhere if we do nothing. Holiness is taking steps toward and into our futures. We all fall but the Resurrection empowers us to walk anew in “the glorious freedom of the sons and daughters of God.” (Paul to the Romans, 8:21)

We are women who light up the world-
with our beauty,
our intelligence, and charm.
Our eyes sparkle as we talk and laugh among ourselves.
Our smiles radiate warmth and comfort to those who love us.
Our faces beam happily when we're engaged in fulfilling work.
we enlighten, we dazzle.
We glow softly when contented and burn brightly when passionate.
We are always lighting up the world, one way or another. - B.J. Gallagher
