..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Love Melts the Soul

Reflect upon the providence and wisdom of God in all
created things and praise Him in them all...Accustom
yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they
 enkindle and melt the soul. --Theresa of Avila

Thanks! I like the two verb "GO DO" phrases in your quote. They challenged me. REFLECT. Don't just let things happen without giving thought. The mother of Jesus did that...She "pondered"...
Don't just think about it....go out and put it into practice...live it out loud,> ALL the time...
Thanks for a quote to make me think and reflect about what I need to do daily as a child of the King...Enjoyed!

I love Theresa of Avila for her down to earth but heavenly minded spiritual teaching. She always get straight to the point in the most challenging, but wonderful way!
