What feeds your soul?







At the 4 Real Learning forum, a question was asked ~ What feeds your soul?

The answer to this varies, doesn't it? Well, for me, the answer varies..

What feeds my soul right now?

Lately, it has been saying the Rosary as a family.

We have gone back to using our rosary beads ( long story - but basically beads were banned for awhile - kids played with them, swung them around, shot each other with them... Sometimes, I despair at my children's lack of religion!). This month, we have re-instated Rosary beads into family prayers.

Last night, sitting in the sitting room, with the air conditioning on, everyone gathered round, using the beads and praying - well, I felt a real peace in my soul.

I will also admit that working out feeds my soul ( okay, it helps me in the physical sense, too.)

I set an intention for my workout and I feel so good after, so happy and glad to be me and where I am.

It is infectious - after a hard but fun workout I want to spread this feeling of goodwill to all.

What feeds your soul, January 2007?

Hi Leonie,
We've had the same problem with slinging rosaries around and breaking them! But when they are quiet and listen to the prayers and join in --well, that definitely "feeds my soul".

Hi Jane,

So nice to hear that another family is like ours at Rosary time! When it flows, however, it does feed our souls...

I'm glad you added a workout as something that helps feed the soul. Physical exercise helps keep the temple of the Holy Spirit in check, making us happier with ourselves and therefore even more willing to open our hearts and mind to the Almighty... now if only I could practice what I preach :-)

Fr, thanks for understanding about hw working out helps the soul - I thouht I'd might sound a bit loopy or somethin! ( Me, loopy? lol!)

Maybe 2007 will be the year you can find more time for walking - or bike riding?
