Soft Little Thought

Our thoughts become words, which become actions.  Actions become habits which become destiny.  If you make a habit of, say, lying, you'll be destined to be seen as an habitual liar.  By the way, this works for good deeds, as well. 

St. Thomas Aquinas, the great church scholar, once wrote that in praying for those we can barely abide, our enemies, the enemies of our loved ones - by praying for these do our intercessions become very powerful.  For, how hard is it to pray for someone who is decent and good?  It's easy. 

So pray for those who will make a habit of lying or being hurtful.  Pray for them before their acts become habits, and they are sealed in their destinies.

Praying for your enemies can do a wonderful work in their lives, but it can also do an amazing work in our own lives!  -  Barbara

Lovely entry. In praying for others, we ourselves are blessed. Praying for others is sometimes, I think, done too quickly. This isn't to say short prayers don't reap blessings. They do. But like anything else in life, the more time we spend at something, the better we get.
Blessings and love too,

I'm praying for you, Cathy.  I hope I'm not too late!  I hope you haven't sealed your destiny

What is all the intellectural babble about, anyway?  Is the purpose to keep you from getting honest and putting it out there?  Get real, instead of trying to be impressive.  PLEASE  

To truly put it out there, is better than any therapist that you have or have had.
