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 ›

With the Angels

I am missing my mother. I used to call her every Monday. So every Monday my phone reminds me to call her. And I miss her more. I could remove that reminder from my phone, but then I feel like I am removing her from my life. So for now I leave it there. The… Read More ›

Support

I attended a Bereavement Support group today. I was relieved that only 3 other people attended. (I handle small groups better. It’s the introvert in me.) It helped to talk about my mother’s death to strangers. I talked about the guilt feelings I had about not being there and about the last time I talked… Read More ›

Grief

I miss my mom. I cry every day. It gets a little easier, but I don’t know if I want it to be easier. I am able to listen to some of her voicemails on my phone over the past year. There is one when she is singing Happy Birthday to me. She is laughing…. Read More ›

For My Mother

“Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.” – Matthew 25:13 My mother recently became very ill. She lived alone 1600 miles away from me. When my brother visited her and discovered her in a confused state, he called an ambulance. She was admitted to the hospital. Eventually she returned home… Read More ›

But Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” John 1:45-51 Come and see. How often do we hear those words? In the silence of prayer? In reading scripture. In the invitations from others? Come and see. How often do we say these words? To our… 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 ›

Love Forever And Two Days

For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother. – Mt 12:50 My husband and I are celebrating our 41st anniversary today. 41 years that have gone by so fast, in the blink of an eye. We are so blessed and we have not ever taken our relationship… Read More ›

Loving Our Neighbor

“The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31 It is easy to understand the verse before this one – to love the Lord your God with all your heart. It is easy to do, too, I might add. God is so good…. Read More ›

Blessings

Easter seemed strange this year. No family get togethers. No Holy Week Masses. I know I could have watched them online but I just didn’t. I think I was just plain sad. There is nothing wrong with being sad. Living in this strange new world, I think I would be crazy if I didn’t feel… Read More ›
