Beautiful Words of St. Therese Comparing People to Flowers

Taken from the Society of the little flower prayer card.

” Jesus deigned to teach me this mystery. He set before me the book of nature. I understood how all the flowers God has created are beautiful, how the splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the Lily did not take away the perfume of the violet or the delightful simplicity of the Daisy.
I understand that if all flowers wanted to be roses, nature will lose her springtime beauty, and the fields would no longer be decked out with little wild flowers.

And so it is in the world of souls, Jesus’ Garden. He will to create great souls comparable to Lily and Roses, but he is creative smaller ones and these must be content to be daisies or violets destined to give joy to God’s glances when he looks down at his feet. Perfection consists in doing His will, and being what he will says to be.

St Therese of Lixeaux
The little flower of Jesus
Carmelite Doctor of the Church

Lord Jesus, help me to blossom as the kind of flower that you have made me and where you’re planted me.

What people in your life are the flowers in your garden?

What I love most about my home is who I share it with.

image

Who do you share your home with?

Is it your spouse? Is this your fiance? Is it a dear friend it’s become family? Share your story about who you share your home with and why you think they’re really special.

I really love my new roommate Alberto Ferreira because he is a good person and likes helping others as a friend and as a physical therapist. He practiced as a physical therapist in Cuba, his native country for 14 years and has lived on the United States for 8 months.

We were introduced to one another by a mutual friend and we were both looking for a roommate with special qualities and we found what we were looking for.

I have a nice big two bedroom apartment now with almost 1000 square feet and my furniture is going to be moved in later this afternoon.

By this evening everything I own will be here in one, big, quiet, peaceful place.

My bedroom with have 2 book cases on it a pretty wicker shelf, my roll top desk and soon a bed.

My upright piano will go on the far wall and I can finally teach piano again because the neighborhood is a family neighborhood and people asked for business cards when they heard I was moving in.

Yes I am finally on the right place with the right person.

If I could hug someone now it would be my dear mom and a special guy in my life.

I love you mom and thanks to meeting a wonderful new friend named Delmy, I will be seeing you soon, since she travels to Moreno Valley twice a month and we are neighbors in my new place I am moving into tomorrow.

Who would you hug if you could?

Share who and what makes them so special to you.

This is my jam: Irish Lamentation by Kim Robertson on Peaceful Dreaming Radio ♫ #iHeartRadio #NowPlaying http://www.iheart.com/original/215?campid=android_share

I love music like this and and hope you do too.

I have loved Irish pubs and the warm wooden panelled walls and charm of the bars and fish and chips and “Cheers” looking atmosphere. I don’t drink alcohol but there are lots of other things to have.

There was a great place called Mulboon’s in Newport Beach, CA in Fashion Island. I used to go there with all the regulars who used to put tips in my crystal brandy snifter that “Paulette Le Pore ” that sat atop the piano I played at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor.

They had a group called Innis free that played there and a huge symphonic that was a massive music box that played brass disks like a victrola.

Memories. ..

Here’s some Irish Themed wallpapers for you….I searched and selected off Zedge.com.

Be a Fountain not a Drain.

Some people are refreshing to be around like a fountain giving your spirit joy making you happy you know them.

Others are like a drain, leaching your positive energies and thoughts. Avoid those who are a drain and associates only with those you can describe as a fountain.

Your life will bloom like a beautiful flower.

Prayer Come Holy Spirit by Virginia Garey

Come, Holy Spirit
Replace the tension with an us
With the Holy relaxation.
Replace the turbulence within us
With a sacred calm.
Replace anxiety within us
With a quiet confidence.
Replace the fear within us
With a strong faith.
Replace the bitterness within us
With the sweetness of grace.
Replace the darkness within us
With a gentle light.
Replace the coldness within us
With a loving warmth.
Replace the night within us
With your light.
Straighten our crookedness.
Fill our emptiness.
Dull the edge of our pride.
Sharpen the edge of our humility.
Light the fires of our love.
Quench the flames of our lust.
Let us see ourselves.
As you see us.
Then we may see you.
As you have promised.
And be fortunate
According to your word;
“Blessed is the pure of heart,
For they shall see God.”

If I could put a sign on top my head it would say “Help Me Please!”

Please read this post. My living situation has greatly compromised my health and I need a safe place to live with that’s smoke free and drama free immediately.

My usual seizure free status was altered to having an increase in complex partial seizures on a daily basis and simple partials because of the 5 day notice to leave the home in of Las Vegas, Nevada, after working for him Luis Garcia who hired me as his Nanny, Personal Chef and Housekeeper wanted to throw me on the street basically today!  From the resultant stress of not having the financial means to move my things twice in a month and living with the lady he was supposed to fire when he hired me- I went to UMC hospital last night after having seizures from stress.
He told me he fired her, Teresa Hernandez, and she would be out soon. Soon never came and from the moment I arrived she yelled and screamed at me and didn’t do much of anything but sit in a closed room.

The day before he let me go, because I used profanity and wasn’t feeling well enough to walk a mile in 104 heat to pick his child up from 3rd grade-when he could easily do it, by parking the car and walking in the class-he was complaining via text on my night off, how much Teresa got on his nerves. Then 24 hours later, I am the one who is fired?

Makes no sense, but much of what goes on in Las Vegas doesn’t and is illegal but still goes on. This place is not worth the cheap rent, when you consider increased crime, lowered ssi and ssdi checks, and lower paychecks and God forsaken, dust blowing, hot weather.

I can’t wait to get my things our of the large home in the northwestern area of Las Vegas. …and have a place of my own or work for a nice family with no drama.

I debated whether creating this post or not, but I knew by doing so people would come forward who truly care about my welfare and help me.

I am seriously considering moving back to southern California where I grew up and have friends and where my dear mother with Alzheimer’s disease lives.

I would get my paratransit back again and not pay cabs for rides like here.
I would see and experience cool ocean breezes again along with ever blooming flowers and be around my many friends I still have there.

A guy did something like this recently back east to get a job and he got hundreds of offers.

Text or call me at 714-728-6037 with any resources or information that you may have, to get me out of this situation. If my creative energies could have operates on all cylanders, I would have been doing marketing work for The Stations Casinos now and teaching two piano students.

Thank you.
