Not Alone

Today I finished reading Fulton Sheen’s “Life of Christ” for my Bible class. It ended predictably with the Ascension. Sheen talked about Christ’s glorified Body that He promised would continue on, which is the Church. Of course, I had heard this before and it had made sense.

New Year Humor

We had a good – and a little humorous – start to the new year. When my dad got up, he was wearing his fancy socks with the planets on them so he could start the new year “on the right foot”. The morning was sunny and warm. My mom went out to the porch […]
