Myra Musing

Someday my eyes will see the Treasure my heart holds when I receive Him in the Holy Eucharist.


Disarm with agape love.

I received Jesus in the Eucharist today and it turned an ordinary day into heaven.


For God there are no accidents. He is able to draw good from every situation no matter how evil or tragic.

There is a time frame in life, none in eternity. In the eternal now every prayer is heard and answered.

The surest way to wound a mother is to wound her children.

Human love no matter how sweet is never sweeter or more satisfying than the love of God.

It is extraordinarily easy to hammer nails into one's own coffin.

There are some who test God and find Him wanting.

A little ignorance goes a long way to destruction while a little wisdom goes a long way to understanding.

To be pro love is to be pro life for where there is love there is life.

It is better to err on the side of love than to be right on the side of sanctimonious self-righteousness. The former is pleasing to God the latter is abhorrent.


Any good I do is because God does the good in me, I can only take credit for my stupidity.


Often we leave the good Lord no choice but to use tough love to get our attention to heed His call to conversion, only then can He fill us with true joy.

In sorrow and tribulation the love of God is perfected in us.

There is a temptation to focus on how we feel but if we do this we miss the whole point of the mission of suffering.

God's purpose for all of us is the same - it is unity with Himself. We have a foretaste of this unity each time we receive Him in the Eucharist.

There is a temptation to compartmentalize our lives surrendering only a part to God and keeping control of the rest. There can never be perfect peace when we live divided lives. God wants all of us - not bits and pieces. He wants much more than the crumbs we offer Him although He receives them humbly.
