I’m Back

(11)
January 15, 2020

I’m back. I have been away. Away from blogging, from writing, from my normal, everyday life. I was sick. Sicker than I have ever been. Hospitalized twice. Emergency surgery. It has taken me a long time to get back. To get back to me. My memory didn’t work right. I lost lots of weight and… Read More ›

A Place to Pray

Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed. – Mk 1:35 I can only imagine how much Jesus yearned for both a quiet place and the time to pray. I have often felt that way myself. Sometimes I let my schedule get too full. I can… Read More ›

Live in the Moment

Man is but a breath,  his days like a passing shadow. – Psalm 144:4 We just got home. We were away, visiting my mom who just celebrated her 85th birthday. We took her on some short trips to some of her favorite places. It was fun. And a real treat to see her joy. Mom… Read More ›

Bluejays and Other Blessings

I had an interesting month of June. To say the least. First, there was the car accident. Second, there was the move. Regardless of car accidents and pain, we still needed to move. My husband is such an expert at moving now, and is so organized, he had done a lot before the car accident…. Read More ›

When Life Interrupts Us

My husband and I were in a car accident last week.  A car ran a red light and cut right in front of us. The airbags came out and smacked us in the chest and face and it felt like the air got sucked right out of our lungs.  The picture I cannot get out… Read More ›

Do We Belong to the World?

Jn 15:18-21 “If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you”. – John 15:19 “The world hates you.” Strong words, but they tell us what we need to hear. After… Read More ›
