Mother Teresa of Calcutta

I believe that God has bestowed each us with the gifts 
needed to do His work. Each person is unique as is our gifts.
He allows us the free will to do as we wish with our lives.
Sometimes we answer His calls and other times we may 
choose to take a pass for whatever reason. He will quietly present opportunities to us throughout our lives. Sometimes those opportunities come with just the perfect timing and other times it can be the most inconvenient and awkward timing possible but He still comes asking 
quietly and softly never begging nor demanding. 
It is always our choice, our will, and our decision.
As we go forward marching though this sometimes very crazy, and often scary world may we try to remember the simple and beautiful words form Mother Teresa below.
And in the back of your mind listen to that voice that tugs at you from time to time asking you, 
never begging you to take the opportunity to give 
extraordinary love in the most ordinary ways.

Do ordinary things with extraordinary love. 
                                          ~Mother Teresa

What I can do you cannot.
What you can do I cannot.
But together we can do something 
beautiful for God.
                                            ~Mother Teresa

Holiness is not the luxury of the few,
it is a simple duty, for you and for me.
                                             ~Mother Teresa

God has created us to love and be loved,
and this is the beginning of prayer, to
know that He loves me, that I have 
been created for greater things.
                                              ~Mother Teresa

The child is the beauty of God present in the world.
The greatest gift to a family.
                                              ~Mother Teresa
