Yesterday at about 6 PM, my lovely vibrant niece, the youngest daughter of my youngest sister, died unexpectedly of complications from a lung infection.
Please remember my family in your prayers as we go through the grieving process and welcome Cynthia into God's loving care. Surely the stars will shine brighter as they welcome her to their realm.

The more time I spend with God in prayer and meditation, the stronger our relationship develops. This strengthening provides a base upon which I build my life, just as a house is built upon a firm foundation. Even if the winds of fear blow and storms roll in, I have faith that my house is safe because the rock beneath me is unfaltering.
However, during difficult times, I may struggle to trust that God is working toward good in my life or in the world. If I feel defeated because of a challenging situation, I turn my attention to Spirit. I focus on the calming rhythm of my breath and my body relaxes. I do not seek a solution; I simply rest in the presence of Spirit. My faith supports me. I feel my trust in God, and I have peace of mind.
There is no Holy One like the Lord, no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.—1 Samuel 2:2

Admit Your Need The man who receives God’s grace will live in peace. Admit you need God’s help when you pray. Your difficulties are His opportunities. Nothing is impossible with God. So, trust Him fully.
Prayer: Father, help me to penetrate my despair with faith. In my helplessness, help me to see hope. Amen

I tried to pass it on to a few friends that I saw when I took my children to school, but they refused to accept it and passed it back to me again. Later on I saw my neighbour and offered it to her. She gave it back even quicker than everyone else. Finally I even decided to try and give it to all the strangers I passed on the street and in the stores. A few of them looked like they might take it without passing it back to me, but in the end every single person returned it.
I looked at it in the mirror this afternoon wondering what was wrong with it and why no-one would keep it. It seemed like such a beautiful, wonderful, joyous, and God given gift. In the end I guessed that a gift this good couldn’t be hoarded and had to keep travelling on from heart to heart and soul to soul. It was no wonder then that I kept getting my smile returned every time I tried to give it away.
I hope that all of you give your smile away today. Don’t be surprised, however, if you find it returned back to you again and again. A gift of such beauty, joy, peace, love, and delight is a gift from God and it travels back and forth connecting hearts, souls, minds, and lives. It is a simple gift that takes so little effort and yet brings such goodness to this world. Its value is beyond compare. It enriches the lives of those who receive it and also the lives of those who give it away. It is the gift that keeps on returning and the gift that blesses us all our lives long.

Today is June 24th, the 19th day of Ramadan.
Worse than the physical and mental disabilities among Muslims is the spiritual blindness and hardness of heart. Today’s passage reminds us that God can bring back to life those who were previously dead. As you read it, please pray that now could be the time for God to bring “wonder upon wonders” to Muslims and open the eyes and their ears to His truths.
“The Lord says,
‘These people come near to me with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me is made up of rules taught by men.
Therefore once more I will astound these people
with wonder upon wonder;
the wisdom of the wise will perish,
the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.
......In that day the deaf will hear the words of the book,
and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.’”
Isaiah 29: 13-14;18
God Bless You
