TERESA OF AVILA SUNDAY POST

"Perhaps we don't know what love is. It wouldn't surprise me at all to learn that this is true, sad but true. Love doesn't exist -- as we like to think -- in the degree to which we are happy. No, love exists in the strength of our determination to try to please God in everything that we do, each and every day. The important thing is not to think much but to love much. So start doing whatever most stirs you to love."

Teresa of Avila, Interior Castle

from the book A Little Daily Wisdom - Christian Women Mystics, by Carmen Acevedo Butcher

Spring stirs me to love the beauty of flowers, children and new beginnings.
