(When sick) Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. ~ Teresa of Avila #quote

Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love. ~ Teresa of Avila

Sharing this quote was inspired by Sylvester’s, Not With Sight poem and the news that he was away from blogging due to illness. When sickness strikes, it is comforting to know that our love continues on, even when we can’t speak or write.

How is your health?  How do you manage when you are unwell?

I pray you and yours are well ❤ ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc

  1. I love this. Thank you for the reminder. I was recently diagnosed with a disease in addition to two syndromes I already cope with. Also have some mystery illness (facial swelling, head pain) that doctors are trying to find a diagnosis for. Sometimes I feel like throwing in the towel on my job, writing, and reaching out to people, but I know that pain is relative and transitory. We have to continue to feed our souls!

    • I regret that this reply is delayed! Since reading it, I have been praying for you and hope you find healing, help, and peace. My goodness, what you are dealing with is so very hard, especially the mystery part. You are very brave and I appreciate your candor with me. Thank you ❤


  2. I have inherited a genetic kidney disorder which I live with. I take the drugs I am supposed to take, I try and avoid the foods I should. I do what I can to maintain the quality of my life as I have much to live for. Children and grandchildren being two groups I love being around.
    We deal with our lot in life as best we can, it’s never easy but it’s what I do.
    This was a lovely reflective thought Angie, thanks for sharing.
