If, then, you ask what kind of piety she was speaking of, you will find it more distinctly designated by the Greek term theosebeia, literally, “the service of God.” The Greek has still another word for “piety,” ensebeia, which also signifies “proper service.”St. AugustineNovember 13, 354-August 28, 430

And I know i am more than the self pity of missing my Daughter, my team mate, my friend, I miss her touch, her smile, The way she let me hold her over my head. I miss her weight upon my shoulders,,,,
,I miss the face of my little girl, And i know i can not see through the door, but I can hope for so much more.

John 14

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

 1“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4You know the way to the place where I am going.”   


And I know it is ok to miss my Daughter my team mate and friend, And then I need to ask God to relieve me of self pity… Then and only then I will know “pity in self” is to drive me out to do something different…. something more….driven out from self to do things different today!  

“God, I offer myself to Thee–to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!” Amen  

John 14:28-29 (New International Version)

 28“You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.   


John 14:6 (New International Version)

 6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
