Up to Date

I haven’t been writing.  I have been praying. Prayers like Please Help! I know God is with me. That is my faith. Jesus promises to be with us always. So I figure He is holding me, helping me to put one foot in front of the other. I have decided to start writing again. For… Read More ›

The Way of Faith

My pastor’s recent homily moved me to tears.  He spoke about the recent visit to Iraq by Pope Francis. It was the first ever papal visit to that country. It was dangerous. There was so much violence, not to mention the pandemic.  No one thought he should go.  The thought that kept running through my… Read More ›

Never Give Up

“She came and fell at his feet.” Mk 7:25 Sometimes we find ourselves in a difficult or painful situation that we are not sure we will ever survive. And all we can do is get on our knees and beg God for a miracle.Have you ever felt that way? Isn’t that how the woman in… Read More ›

Gifts

I’m back. It has been a month since I last posted. Between the stresses of a sick husband and the pandemic and dealing with Medicare, etc., I just never felt like writing. Or reading. In other words, I have been feeling overwhelmed. And as usual, when I feel overwhelmed, even the smallest things stress me… Read More ›

We just had to go – my husband has mentored one of the new deacons. We have been traveling the long road with him to… Read More ›

Bring Them To Me

Then he said, “Bring them here to me.” – Matthew 14:18 Bring them here to me. Do you ever look back to the time when you were brought to Jesus? Was it a person or an event or a church? Or a combination of them all? Reflect on that time. Or times. Bring them here… Read More ›

Trust in Jesus

At that time Jesus said in reply, “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.” (Mt 11:25) Pharisees rejected Jesus. They closed their hearts to Him. Pride shut them off from Jesus. … Read More ›

Do Not Be Afraid

So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. – Matthew 10:31 “So do not be afraid.” Jesus tells us that a lot. In fact it is in the Bible over 300 times. I guess God knows we need that reassurance. Do not be afraid. We are not alone even though it… Read More ›

Who is Jesus?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” – Matthew 16:15 Who do you say that Jesus is?  Who do you know Jesus to be? Not just His name but who He is.  I have related to Jesus in different ways throughout my spiritual journey. There are times when I have… Read More ›
