Most of my blog posts are about the happenings in my business, with an emphasis on how to live a healthy balanced life, and an occasional personal tidbit thrown in for good measure.
I was reminded recently that the real key to whole, healthful living, is not only what we snack on or how many crunches we do, but rather a more intangible practice, one that has always been central in my life. Faith.
Faith seems to be popping up a lot lately in my life. Many people are facing big challenges with health, finances and relationships. It seems I’m having daily conversations with customers, coworkers, friends or family about how essential faith is, not just during trying times, but always.
Faith is truly an act of courage. It isn’t a decision of the mind, but a practice of the heart.
As grace becomes a familiar companion we recognize that we must do what we can, and then surrender the outcome. We must trust that with faith we can handle whatever comes our way.
Last weekend I have the honor of being on the team of the Women’s 64th Cursillo Weekend for the Diocese of Bridgeport. Wow. The faithfulness of these women was almost overwhelming. Everyone has a story and faith has helped these women grow in their faith and become more whole.
Just like other healthy habits, strengthening our faith is not a destination, but an ongoing journey.
