Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes



Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

Creator of all...

Creator of all
Sustainer of all
Savior of all
your glory and majesty
are beyond our understanding
your power too awesome to behold
And yet your love enfolds us as a gentle breeze
Savior of all
Sustainer of all
Creator of all
We bless your holy name
How can we praise you
In life’s ordinary moments bus, car or train,
pedestrian moments, at home and employment
with all those distractions How can we praise you?
How can we praise you when time is so precious
appointments and targets distracting our focus
muddying waters 

made clean for your purpose
How can we praise you?
How can we praise you?
Through all of our actions a smile and a greeting
a shoulder to lean on a word in due season
love and compassion in all situations
Yours, Lord is the Glory
in everything I see a country scene
mountain stream sunrise, sunset, rain and snow
Yours, Lord is the Glory
wherever I might go
Yours, Lord is the Glory
in everything I hear
a roaring sea bumblebee
laughter, loving, a tender poem
Yours, Lord is the Glory
wherever I might go
Yours, Lord is the Glory
in everything I feel
a special place
warm embrace
accepted, helped to become whole
Jesus
I am not a poet or musician
but I have written a song of praise
in my heart And in the quietness
of this moment
I shall share it with you
in the certain knowledge
that any imperfections
will be made perfect
in the simple act
of opening my heart
and singing.
