Also available on Amazon
This little book is the second in a series of daily meditations. It holds 31 photos, sketches, and quotes to invite you into quiet moments of reflection and offers comfort and strength on your unique pilgrimage of loss and grief. “I found that lots of words can overwhelm when passing through deep waters of the various losses in our life. However beauty and simplicity gift my soul. These images and ponderings continue to be a fragrant balm to the tender wounds of my heart and life. You will be met in the pain and suffering of your past and present sorrows that have impacted you deeply, changed your life, and cracked you open to your core. When it seems all hope is gone, may genuine comfort, patient wisdom, and radical new life be yours.” Lorie

“I discovered these ‘messages of grace’ while on an awakening journey with Love. Lingering with them became a passage into the real, yet mysterious, depths of the beautiful Presence of Love. My hope and trust is that you will also experience the grace of deepening Love, intimacy, and transformation through these invitations.” ~ Lorie
A glimpse inside and where the title Choose Love was found:
“Because of the Beloved
my heart is happy, my soul illuminated.
From the beloved’s greenery
hundreds of blessed rivers
are flowing to the rose gardens.
In order to enter into your rose garden,
the soul makes peace with the thorns.
Choose love. Choose love.
Without this beautiful love,
life is nothing but a burden.”
Pause & Ponder ~ Making peace with the thorns.
Prayer ~ I choose love.
Breathe in ~ Light & healing love to my rose garden.
Personal Word for Today ~ _____________________________

“This book is a treasure! Invited is both a manual for the Journey and a companion for the quiet places. It is a guide for praying with the Scriptures, for healing, for retreating, and for living in community. It is a great help in discerning and listening to the voice of Jesus, and it is a valuable handbook for retreat leaders. It is a joy to read and an invaluable and practical handbook for the disciple of Jesus.” – The Rev. Dr. Irene Gifford-Cole. For nearly 30 years Irene has served as Anglican priest, clinical psychologist, retreat leader, and spiritual director to many.
“ Invited is a book I have been waiting for, to help myself and others go further and deeper in encountering God. Lorie has brought together a feast of treasures old and new in a fresh expression of the ‘hospitality of the pen’. Invited, as a well thumbed companion to many personal adventures in faith and in community, is likely to become a devotional classic.” – Karen Lowe, Senior Co-leader of Antioch Church, Llanelli, Wales. Karen has been involved in prayer, mission and church planting with Mark, her husband, for 20 years. At present she is developing a mission movement with its roots in the Celtic monastic tradition.
“Lorie has gifted us with an extensive guide to a livable practice of prayer. Grounded authentically in her own life, her creative, personal prayer exercises open the door to deeper intimacy with God.”
– Steve Imbach, Director of SoulStream, Spiritual Director/Supervisor
