Airport Blessings

I talked with a far away friend today who traveled over the weekend. She was a little nervous after not flying for over 27 years. She told me how she was struggling to figure out how to get from the airport to the hotel. She prayed right then and there and God helped her through […]

Her Jewelry

Before my dad died, he, my mom, and I made notes about the interesting items they have collected from their travels around the world. We wanted to make sure people knew what they were and where they came from. My mom has been wanting to do the same thing with her jewelry. Tonight we decided […]

St. Neighbor

We quickly became friends with our neighbors when they moved in several years ago. They are kind, generous, faithful, and have lots of great stories to tell. Recently, I have been asking the husband to take care of some things that I just can’t do. My mom and I were talking about him at dinner. […]

Piece of the Puzzle

I saw a quote from Toby Mac in a couple different places, so it seemed like an important message to hear and the share: “You are part of a puzzle in someone’s life. You may never know where you fit, but someone’s life may never be complete without you in it.” I Found God today […]

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? […]

How Much We Love

There is much confusion and division in our world and it can seem like there is no real answer. I heard a quote today that put it all in perspective. “On the eve of our life, we will be judged by how much we loved.” St. John of the Cross. As my mom always says, […]

Spirit in Your Heart

Today I read a quote from St. Anthony Zaccaria. It is his feast day in the church. He was a very spiritual man who incited a movement to understand the Gospel simply and clearly. Pope Benedict XVI, in a preface written about Saint Anthony wrote he was, “an authentic man of God… a true leader, […]

In Our Hearts

Yesterday was the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Today was the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Is it coincidence that yesterday the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and that today new gun laws were passed? In the words of President Biden,  “I know there’s much more work to do, and […]


I was just perusing my previous blogs this evening. When I started writing, I simply wanted to shed a little light on the love and goodness that God offers every day. What I have received is so much more. I have managed to capture a somewhat decent record of my and my family’s live events. […]
