Holy Week: Courageous Clarity

As we prepare for Good Friday and Easter Sunday a few things lurking around the corners of our hearts may chip away at our faith priorities. We may lack courage to open up the dark corners of our lives to more of Christ’s scrutiny. That’s the thing about Easter. Good Friday takes the darkness out of dark and opens us to the victorious Light of Easter – if we let Jesus take over fulltime management of our heart’s real estate and daily schedule.

That begs the question…


Jesus is the Word – to be spoken.
Jesus is the Truth – to be told.
Jesus is the Way – to be walked.
Jesus is the Light – to be lit.
Jesus is the Life – to be lived.
Jesus is the Love – to be loved.
Jesus is the Joy – to be shared.
Jesus is the Sacrifice – to be offered.
Jesus is the Peace – to be given.
Jesus is the Hungry – to be fed.
Jesus is the Thirsty – to be satiated.
Jesus is the Naked – to be clothed.
Jesus is the Homeless – to be taken in.
Jesus is the Sick – to be healed.
Jesus is the Lonely – to be loved.”
Saint Teresa of Calcutta 

grace, peace & courageous clarity

      Thanks, Debbie. That’s a favorite of St. Teresa’s (still want to call her Mother Teresa!) that I’ve carried to many places as a reminder why I was there (& here now!) Blessings & hugs! ✨🌹✨🙏✨🤗✨
