Courage and Hope

Dear Fellow Journalers,

The following 8 Courage and Hope Sayings “article” was given to me years ago on retreat. I kept it in my journal and want to share it with you. Please feel free to share.

Courage…

does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,”I will try again tomorrow.”

Courage…

is not the absence of fear. Courage is the presence of fear with the willingness to face it.

Courage…

is moving into the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be.

Take courage…

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. (Joseph Campbell)

Stress is…

an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Breathe. You have everything you need.

Hope …

is knowing that you are greater than anything that will ever happen to you.

Do not pray…

for courage… for God has already given it to you. Pray instead to receive the courage that is living within you right now.

Paper Daydreams The Pursuit of Happiness- Spirituality

 

Dear  Fellow Journalers,

I write a blog uniquelyyourscards.wordpress.com and every month I post an article entitled The Pursuit of Happiness.

While I try not to duplicate, I think this one is worth it:

July is the month of Spirituality. I’m sure that at first “glance” the idea of spirituality read religion  may seem to be out-of-place when you think of journaling but I’ll bet if you read on you’ll understand the “pull” of this topic.

For those of you who attend church, temple or other houses of worship, think back to a time when the music moved you. Sometimes a prayer, sermon or just the surroundings can inspire you. If you don’t go to church, do you watch a minister on TV?

Do you have a place that you go to reflect or pray? There’s a retreat house in CT that I have gone to for 15+ years now and people are always asking me why. “Why go so far away?” ” Why every year?” I tell them that it’s my second home. I feel close to God there and the combination of the peaceful surroundings, companionship, talks and music help me reconnect with my faith. My faith journal always accompanies me and one book. This book I will review for you on the 16th.

“We make our journeys by hope and faith; hope that our walk will be worthy of our steps and faith that we are going somewhere.”

“Walking on water” by Richard Paul Evans

‘Til next time,

~Sallie
