WOYWW: Teach Me Your Ways!

I am working in the garden. 
I decided to do an auction
to help with the medical expenses
of my friend who has been in a coma
for several weeks now. 

I took pictures and put a minimum bid.
I've sold several items already. It's fun but a lot of work! 
Here's one of the things I'm selling for 
a minimum bid of P100 ($2.00).
See Auction for Arnold to take a peek!

"Your ways O Lord, make known to me; teach me Your paths." Psalm 25:4

What a wonderful prayer to start our time with the Lord! Even if we've been reading the Bible for years and have gone from cover to cover, we will never be able to say, "I already know Your ways. I can stop reading and learning now." 

Even monks, nuns, and preachers have to ask God to continually guide them and teach them His ways. In St. Benedict's Rule for Monks, there is this important dictate: "Listen, O my child, to the precepts of the Master and incline the ear of thy heart." 

There was a beautiful, very successful actress in the 50s and early 60s named Dolores Hart. She made movies with Elvis Presley, Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn, and other famous leading men. Just when she was going to sign a contract which would have made her even more successful, she stunned Hollywood to become a Benedictine nun in the Abbey of Regina Laudis.  She is now 79 years old, and has been prioress in the Abbey since 2001. She listened to the ear of her heart, which is also the title of her autobiography. 

Faith is a journey, an adventure. We need to be courageous, listen to God so He can lead us, and open up possibilities we would never even dream of!
