Liturgy is like a strong tree
whose beauty is derived
from the continuous renewal of its leaves,
but whose strength comes from the old trunk,
with solid roots in the ground.
POPE PAUL VI
What do you wish would spring into your life?
A time of growth and renewal.
To spend more time renewing my faith.
It is my personal responsibility to keep my soul nourished.
There is no one or something to blame, but myself...
if I do not take the time to replenish my soul.
When faith comes knocking... time to open the door!
Allow time to reflect... heal and rejoice.
Welcome in growth by renewing the old,
with acceptance for what I can not change...
and build on what I know I can.
My belief system...
It is our behavior, our true self that takes action...
stepping forward to our calling.
(we each have our own)
It is there to give direction, a guide.
A guide to
build it up... built it strong... build it to last.
Time to spring my faith, my soul, my beliefs into action!
What are you wishing... would spring into your life?

I don't know why, but your post reminded me of The Guest House by Rumi, (maybe because of the door, your faith knocking).
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
Oh, Jill... this is "BEAUTIFUL!"Delete
Such lovely word to share... thank you for sharing. ((hugs))
And, wishing along beside me! :]
