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

Life is short!

First, I 

was dying to finish my high school 
and start college, 
and then I was dying to finish college and start working,
then I was dying to marry and have children 
and then I was dying for my children to grow old 
enough so I could go back to work, but then 
I was dying to retire and now I dying…and suddenly 
I realized I forgot to live….
Please don’t let this happen to you, appreciate 
your current situation and enjoy each day….
Old friend…
To make money, we lose our health, and then to restore our health, 
we lose our money….
We live a if we are never going to die, and we die as if we never lived…

Life is very short, so break your silly ego, forgive 
quickly, believe slowly,

love truly, laugh loudly and never avoid anything 
that makes you smile.

When I woke up this morning lying in bed, 
I was asking myself;

What are some of the secrets of success in life?
I found the answer right there, in my very room.
The Fan said…………..Be cool
The Roof said……………Aim high
The Window said……...See the world
The Clock said……….. Every minute is precious
The calendar said……….Be up-to-date
The Mirror said…………..Reflect before you act
The Door said ………Push hard for your goals
Carry a Heart that Never Hates.

Carry a Smile that Never Fades.
Carry a Touch that Never Hurts...
