Loving the life you live, and living the life you love!

When weaknesses of the flesh start to rear its ugly head, and our interest in the worldly allurements begins to consume us, let us be reminded of this revealing quote by our dearest Mother Teresa, and be compelled to pursue and accept God’s invitation to be fully united with Him with irresistible hunger and awe; we must not allow our infrequent terrestrial longings and inclinations cloud our desire for celestial harvest:

“In each of our lives Jesus comes as the Bread of Life – to be eaten, to be consumed by us. This is how He loves us. Then Jesus comes in our human life as the hungry one, the other, hoping to be fed with the Bread of our life; our hearts by loving, and our hands by serving. In loving and serving, we prove that we have been created in the likeness of God, for God is Love and when we love we are like God. This is what Jesus meant when He said, “Be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.”

~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta ~

We find completion, maturity and wholeness taking precedence over quantity, thus, we gain understanding that our service of God is measured NOT by quantity, but by how close it comes to perfection (with unrestricted endearment, love and affection ALWAYS attached to it).
