See yourself as Jesus sees you

I invite you to watch this video from Ascension Presents’ YouTube channel. In it, Fr. Mark Toups, an experienced spiritual director, leads readers inward to invite the Lord to heal those areas where they need it most.

You are invited to imagine what it would be like if you could see yourself the way Jesus sees you. Even in the midst of our sins, struggles, and failures, Jesus looks upon us with love as His Beloved. All He asks for us is to meet His gaze and fall in love with Him in return.

Turn toward Jesus and let’s allow ourselves to be fully seen by Him no matter where we find ourselves in life. Be not afraid of standing before Jesus unhidden and allow God to clearly see and completely love you. God wants to give you more.

See yourself as Jesus sees you – Fr. Mark Toups

World Sleep Day, 2022

When we speak of sleep, we generally think of nighttime, but did you know that there is a World Sleep Day?

Started in 2008, World Sleep Day is a global awareness act that celebrates sleep. Its goal is to raise awareness of sleep as a human privilege that is often compromised by the habits of modern life. The focus is on helping those with serious sleep problems.

Celebrated on the Friday before Spring Vernal Equinox of each year, this holiday has an annual 155 events held across the world and is participated by over 70 countries.

World Sleep Day was organized by the World Sleep Day Committee of the World Sleep Society, and it began with a group of health professionals and providers who were studying in the area of sleep medicine and sleep research.

For World Sleep Day 2022, which is observed on March 18, the theme and slogan is Quality Sleep, Sound Mind, Happy World. The questions asked on the official website are: How does quality sleep help maintain mental health? How might better sleep help people focus during the day? Or how might fatigue weigh us down physically, mentally, and emotionally?
