Shine On

A little inspiration from the Happiness and Blue Shoes Blog! Click on over to for more. :)

An old family friend of ours sends out beautiful, hand illustrated Christmas cards every year.  And one year, the card featured this stunning quote from the Old Testament:

“The stars shine joyfully at their posts…they shine to delight their Creator.” (Baruch 3:34-35)

To shine joyfully at my post.  This has become my life’s goal.  This passage sums up, in my mind, the key to happiness:

Live in the will of the Lord, and live delightfully for Him.

A few years later, I realized this passage was part of the readings from the Easter Vigil Mass.  Hearing it this Easter, I knew I had to share it with you all.

Happy Easter!!!
