Good Monday morning! I'm going to be guest blogging at Faith and Faith Live! all this week. I'm using the format of the daily devotions in our new book, Small Steps for Catholic Moms: Think. Pray, Act. Every Day. to give you an idea of how it works. The book is expected next week, so consider this a sneak preview:-).
In the book, we focus on a virtue each month and look at the wisdom of great spiritual counselors, say a short prayer, and set about doing some small thing to help us grow in that virtue. This week, we're all about Kindness.
In her gripping, amazing, life-changing, fabulous, testimony to grace and faith and mercy, Immaculee Illibagiza takes forgiveness to a place that most of us will never be challenged to understand. Grace shines through this woman in a tangible, but supernatural way. She once said, "If you have to choose between being right and being kind, always choose to be kind."
With that in mind, knowing that we can be kind no matter what life throws us, let's look together at kindness this week.
