Mother Teresa's Daily Prayer

Dear Jesus,
Help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love.
Penetrate and possess my whole
being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine.
Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus.
Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.




I love that! Especially the first line!

That is incredibly beautiful. I would love to meet you personally and have you be a part of our group. We are putting together a website and I will post the things that we will be doing. I completely understand your daughters attachment issue, so don't worry. I do know that it will not be exclusively asian children in the playgroup since both Stefanie and myself have bio kids who will be there also-that may help a little.
I will definitely keep you in the loop. Maybe you could come solo to our mothers evenings (there will be no children there) events and help out with other mothers trying to get through paperwork or other issues.

Beautiful prayer by a beautiful woman.

Mother Teresa also once said, “Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.”

Today would have been her 100th birthday.
