Believe the truth!

"O God, help me to believe the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful!"
Macrina Wiederkehr

I heard this at a prayer service while at the Motherhouse in Kansas and I thought it was such an amazing nugget for a winter morning contemplation. How can we see the God-dwelling in others if we cannot see the God-dwelling in ourselves? That is why we are told to love others as we love ourselves, but, so often we are our own worst enemies! Many times our harsh judgments of others are carefully disguised dissatisfaction with ourselves. Today, let's be aware of the light of God that shines in each one of us. In realizing how God sees us as a most beautiful creation, we can look at others the same way. Blessings on your Monday! Love, heidi
