Action now

You have life, and you have this day. Realize the massive extent of your opportunity, and jump into positive action now.

You have awareness, creativity, skill, knowledge, passion and purpose. Put it all into action, and transform the fleeting moments into lasting treasure.

You’re much better than any flimsy excuses that might threaten to hold you back. You’re highly determined, able to slough off distractions and get great work done.

Take action, and in just a few minutes you’ll have momentum on your side. Keep it up, and by the end of the day you’ll have new achievements to show for your effort.

Sure, the challenges are real and difficult. Even so, you have much more going for you than against you.

Offer yourself and the whole world a great big smile for all the positive possibilities. And make those possibilities real by giving them your energy and action, now.

— Ralph Marston

Make a beautiful moment

Allow, appreciate, accept all that is, as it is, and make a beautiful moment. Let beauty touch you, let joy flow generously from you, and be in this beautiful moment.

Expect the highest and best you can imagine, and work to make it so. But don’t let judgment cloud the value that is already yours to live.

Know that every moment is a beautiful moment. Open yourself, humble yourself, allow yourself to embrace the beauty in whatever form it takes.

What has come before is now a memory, and what will come next is not yet real. This is the time to live, to act, to be thankful, to enjoy, in this beautiful moment.

Let the wonder that’s found in every corner of life amaze you. Let the love, the possibilities, the unique substance in your own life inspire you.

Right here and now, with all that’s going on, make a beautiful moment in your life. Then move forward with the peace, the purpose, the joy and strength to make a whole lot more.

— Ralph Marston

Dear Friend,                                                                                    June 7, 2017

We hope that all is well with you and your family.  We at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine would once again like to invite you, to The Knights and Lady Knights of Our Lady of Lourdes Annual Steak Roast.  We hope that you had the chance to attend last year and can return this year.  Of course please bring a friend or friends. 

The Steak Roast will take place on Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 4:30 PM to 6:45 PM (serving times).  All tickets will be sold by reservation only, due by July 9, 2017, RSVP only no refunds.  The menu will consist of a grilled 8oz. steak, corn on the cob, baked potato, salad, dessert, bread and butter and coffee or tea.  One ticket will be $20 for the dinner and a chance at three $100 drawings to be held 5:30 PM, 6:15 PM, and 7:00 PM.  A ticket for just the dinner is $15. There will be an opportunity to purchase more tickets for the $100 raffle at $5 per ticket.  The price for the basket raffle this year will be one ticket for $1.00 and 6 tickets for $5.00.

It takes an astronomical amount of funds to just maintain the Shrine.  We have had many unforeseen problems such as a new chapel roof, a new arch by the Stations, replacement of the back porch and steps, repair of multiple water lines just to name a few so we appreciate the support that you give us by attending these fundraisers.  Thank you for your generous help.  

If you feel so inclined and it is within your means, then please sponsor a Sister by paying for their ticket.  Thank you if you can.    Enclosed you will find a reservation form.  Feel free to copy that form for your friends.  All of you remain in our prayers. 

God’s blessings, The Sisters of the Most Holy Trinity

Motivational Monday 6-12-17

 When he was much younger, our son, Jared, used to greet each morning with the declaration, "I waked up!"  He was genuinely excited about having another chance to be alive and have fun.  

Anticipation and excitement need not be limited to childhood, sporting events, and holiday seasons. It is possible to deliberately create significant levels of anticipation, excitement, and fulfillment on a regular basis by remembering to focus on three simple but strikingly powerful life-enhancing practices:
1. Be Grateful. Life is something we never see coming and never know when is departing.  By being grateful on purpose we acknowledge the gift of life and reenergize ourselves at the same time. 
2. Look to Explore. There is no finding or creating passion and purpose in life without exploring. Each day offers the chance to discover and engage something new, even if we are in the same place doing the same thing. New adventures and discoveries have more to do with inner attitude than outer location. 
3. Own Your Joy. As children we never hesitate to express our full feelings about being fully satisfied. Being free to express our joy enhances our experience of joy.
For more information on creating anticipation and excitement in life, read Fulfilled: Living and Leading with Unusual Wisdom, Peace, and Joy (Abingdon Press, 2013) by Kirk Byron Jones.
