What's bringing me joy?
Derek and I have a litany of saints. We say this litany after our rosaries together. One of the saints is St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower. We love her childlike tendencies; her little ways inspire us. Her love for Jesus gives us zeal to love Him more and more each day. Here is one of my favorite quotes by St. Therese.
Even though Derek and I have found our secondary vocation (God willing- only 2 more months until we’re married!), our first vocation, like St. Therese says, is Love. Whether we’ve found our lower case v- vocation or not, let us surrender everything to the foot of the Cross. Let this love of the Cross overflow hearts with the joy. Let this joy radiate in every areas of our lives. This love is what is bringing me joy this week along with celebrating St. Therese’s feast day with Derek, macaroons and stripes. What’s bringing you joy?
