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

BLESSED MORNING"

This morning when I woke up And saw the sun above,
I softly said, "Good morning, Lord, Bless everyone I love."
Right away I thought of you 
And said a loving prayer
That He would bless you specially, 
And keep you free from care.
I thought of all the happiness
The day could hold in store,
I wished it all for you because
No one deserves it more.
I felt so warm and good inside,
My heart was all aglow,
 I know God heard my prayers for you,
He hears them all, you know! -

The Will of God

"To get something you never had, you have to do 
something you never
did".

When God takes something from your grasp, 
He's not punishing you,
but merely opening your hands to receive something better.
Concentrate on this sentence.....
"The will of God will never take you where the
Grace of God will not protect you".
Something good will happen to you
today.

Finding God

I helped a little child to see
That God had made a willow tree 
 And God became more real to me. 
I tried to lead a child through play 
 To grow more Christlike every day,
 And I myself became that way.
 I joined a junior child in prayer
 And as we bowed in worship there 
 I felt the dear Lord's loving care.
Lord, keep us ever quick to see 
By guiding children we find thee.

HOW DO YOU DO LORD!!

Look God: 
I have never spoken to You.
But now I want to say, "How do You do."
You see God, they told me You did not exist;
And, like a fool, I believed all of this.
Last night from a shell hole I saw Your sky;
I figured right then they had told me a lie.
Had I taken the time to see the things You made,
I would know they weren't calling a spade a spade.
I wonder, God, if You would shake my hand;
Somehow, I feel that You will understand.
Strange, I had to come to this hellish place,
before I had time to see Your face.
Well, I guess there isn't much more to say,
But I am sure glad, God, I met You today.
I guess the zero hour will soon be here,
But I am not afraid since I know You are near.
The signal- well, God I will have to go; I
love you lots, this I want you to know.
Looks like this will be a horrible fight; Who knows,
I may come to your house tonight.
Though I wasn't friendly with you before,
I wonder, God, if you would wait at the door.
Look, I am crying, me shedding tears!
I wish I had known you these many years.
Well, I will have to go now, God.
Goodbye - Strange, since I met you,
I am not afraid to die.

Only You, Lord

In our walk to the cross
and beyond who will roll the stone away
show us the empty tomb our risen Savior
Messiah Only you, Lord
as you revealed yourself to three
women early on that Resurrection morning
Only you, Lord as you revealed yourself
to hesitant and frightened disciples in the
upper room and showed your wounded side
Only you, Lord as you revealed yourself
through the power of your Holy Spirit on
that Pentecost morning
and reveal your self today through tongues of fire
and through the gentlest of breeze through revelation
and revolution in hearts and souls In our walk
to the cross and beyond who will roll the stone
away show us the empty tomb
our risen Savior Messiah
Only you, Lord Only you!
