Mission Trip Stories

Today we went to our neighbor’s house for a visit and lunch. While we were there, they showed us the video of the mission trip they just returned from in Ecuador. They always have great stories to tell about their trips and the impact the Bible/English Camp has on the participants and their families. One […]

Community Picnic

This evening was the annual community picnic. I was happy that my mom wanted to go and had the energy to do so. She talked with a couple friends who she hadn’t visited with in a very long time. And we met some new people as well. We were afraid that it would rain on […]

The Good Book

Since we are in a cleaning out mood, my mom has been going through her bookcase. Today she pulled out a funny illustrated paperback named, *The Good Book, by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as told to David Evans.” It’s just a short book with humorous captioned cartoon type drawings. The one she called me […]

Morning Walk

Last night 3 of my siblings spent the night. I woke up fairly early and decided to go out for a walk. One of my sister’s was awake too, so we both went. I used to walk my dog every morning. She died many years ago, and I can’t even remember the last time I […]

Honing Out

All my siblings, my mom, and I got together today and started going through my dad’s library. People chose books that they wanted to keep and we talked about what to do with the rest. There were several collections that entertained my dad including Star Trek, old science fiction from when he was in high […]

Back From Mission

Our neighbor’s returned from their mission trip in Ecuador. My mom, sister’s, and I helped get some of the materials ready for the English Bible Camp before they left. We have been praying for them every day. I received an email from the wife today. She thanked us for the help, the prayers and said […]

Blessed Memories

Today is the memorial of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. She was from the Mohawk tribe. When Jesuit missionaries came to the area, she asked to be baptized, even though it caused her to be an outcast. Various miracles and supernatural events are attributed to her intercession. She is the patron saint of a good friend who […]

Grateful Reminder

I went to get a bone density test today, which I have never had before. It was just like a low powered x-ray. I have had x-rays on my back at different times during my life for different reasons. The technician today said the same thing that the others have said… “Um…did you know your […]

Sin to Good

I have been listening to a reading or Fr. Jacques Phillippe book, “Searching for and Maintaining Peace.” Yesterday’s reflection was about how we cannot be discouraged because we make mistakes or sin. I remember people saying to me that there were only 2 perfect people who live on this earth – Jesus and His Mother […]

In The Follow Through

My mom didn’t feel well today, so we participated in Mass with Fr. Mike Schmitz online. The Gospel reading was about the person who questioned Jesus about how to get to Heaven. He basically knew the answer – love God and love your neighbor. But he pushed further asking Jesus who exactly is my neighbor? […]
