Faith lives in my house and in many others which is cause for celebration. Personally, I think having a strong spiritual and moral compass is as important now as it has been in any other time in our country. It is developed through our family upbringing, experiences and the culture we are surrounded by.
I was surprised by a recent survey taken by Marist College. Headlines and social media would have us believe that faith is dead. Quite to the contrary and according to the article, a “substantial majority (72%) of Americans are deeply concerned over the country’s moral direction.” Here is a link to the article if you’d like to read it in it’s entirety.
This Easter season, I have spent time reflecting on certain spiritual passages and life principles which have been instilled in me over my lifetime which always keep me afloat with hope and optimism.
There is always a better tomorrow if we put faith in our Creator and be an active participant in using our energy to fulfill our spirit in positive ways.
I loved telling my own story in this award-winning memoir. When I listen to the piano accompaniment of the old song, “I Love to Tell the Story” it takes me right back to my days of my childhood being at church with my family every Easter Sunday at Maryland Presbyterian Church.
Have a good Easter, everyone!
