Santa Cruz el Trabajo

Por la señal de la Santa Cruz, mantén a mis amigos cerca y de nuestros enemigos líbrame, Dios mío Dios…

Santa Teresa, ya me entró una pereza
Santo Toribio, un alivio de este martirio!
Santa Rosa, quien dijo que la vida sería color rosa?
San Marcos, librame de tantos recados
Santa Marta, este trabajo me mata!
San Juan, hasta cuando tanto afán?
Santa Inés, esta rutina no tiene sentido, ni al derecho ni al reves
San José, estos sueños a la cama llevaré

En el nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espiritu Santo. Amén.

This Is Home

There’s so much that I’m thankful for, Heavenly Father. You have carefully chosen the right people in my life, given me a home, given me my love, protected me from harm. Yesterday was amazing, being at San Julian Park with the homeless was eye opening and made me realize how lucky I am to have a home. Last night, as I was getting ready for bed, I gave thanks that I was fortunate enough to have a roof over my head where I could easily be homeless and in the same situation that these brothers and sisters were in. I have to count my blessings on the daily, never forget how fortunate I am and how God always protects me and my family. I’ll forever be grateful for the gifts He’s given me.

Five Minutes

Five more minutes, please! Hit up that snooze button, will ya?
Five minutes to speak listening to the mockingbirds and the crows,
The traffic and the chaos far away where they belong, far away…

Five minutes seem very short but it’s enough time for a prayer, enough time to seek for forgiveness and guidance. Five minutes is all that God wants, just five more minutes of your time.

Would you give Him just five minutes of your time?
