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

A Piece Of Cake

Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this," or
"Why did God have to do this to me."
 Here is a wonderful explanation!
A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is
 going wrong she's failing algebra, her boyfriend broke
up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks
her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, "Absolutely, Mom, I love your cake."
"Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother offers.
"Yuck" says her daughter.
"How about a couple raw eggs?" 
"Gross, Mom!" "Would you like some flour then? 
Or maybe baking soda?" 
"Mom, those are all yucky!"
To which the mother replies:
"Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.
But when they are put together in the right way,
they make a wonderfully delicious cake!
Life works the same way.
Many times we wonder why God would let us go through such bad and difficult times.
But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order,
they always work for good!
We just have to trust Him and, eventually,
they will all make something wonderful!
God is crazy about you.
He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk,
He'll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.
