“You’ve probably been wearing the same few outfits over and over now. Think anybody has noticed? Probably not, and that’s because we are not the center of attention – thank the Good Lord! What a relief it is to quickly put on clothes, without having to choose between too many choices, and get on with what God has in store for us. You’re halfway there – keep up the amazing work! ”

DAY SIX

Loving God, St. Therese experienced every day as a gift from You. She saw it as a time to love You through other people. May I, too, see every day as an opportunity to say yes to You.

I accept your will, Lord. Help me to accept your will every day!
I try to forgive, Lord. Help me to forgive 70 times 7 times!
I am humble, Lord. Give me more humility!
I see you, Lord. Help me to see you more!
I trust you, Lord. Help me to trust you more!
I love you, Lord. Help me to love you more!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be sttherese_face

St. Therese Pray for us!

  1. I am praying for everyone making the Closet Challenge Novena today. I have learned a lot these past 6 days from my limited clothing choices of only 7 items. First, I have realized, as Leah says, people don’t really notice what I am wearing! Also, I have noticed that I really am taking extra good care of my 7 items! I have washed them promptly, hung them to dry or folded them carefully. I know where these 7 items are at all times. Before this Clothing fast, I often hurriedly left clothes on the floor of my closet, then spend time looking for them later. I have really been enjoying this “less can be more” approach. So much so that I am beginning to think of other ways to continue this attitude into other areas of my life.
