GOD JUL GOTT 2015

Dear friends,
thanks all of you for the past Autumn and year at Domino! So much engagement, so much friendlyness and kindness- toward one another, toward people outside our community! Loving kindness. I recall laughs and tears, discussions and prayers, all of it.
God- immeasurable, beyond everything imaginable – it´s he who decided to make himself known to humans. He gave birth to a child, and with this event 2000 years ago a process of infiltration into humanity and into the world is going on. It´s language is silence, it does not make a great noice, but day after day the Spirit grows, hidden, invisible- visible in acts though – acts of loving kindness, small acts of everyday life. God shows himself in tired and grey mornings, in a small sharing, in a decision. His gradual coming makes it possible to hope – an Active Hope – hope for life. That is what we celebrate these days.
I share with you some lines I got as a gift from one of you a week ago. I handle on that gift – let´s do that with all gifts received, handle them on to others! Pray on these lines, keep them, See you in January!
GOT JUL GOTT 2015 MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY 2015

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.DSCN2609
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
― Mother Teresa

Happiness?

One of the themes of Advent is to repent. What could that be?
Istn´t it to find a new direction where to look for happiness? We all want to be happy. Bur where are we looking for it?
Take time! – time to be quiet in front of God. -time to look where you are and where you are going.
