Yes He Cares

When I was out and about today, I passed a large wooden fence that faced the street. It had words written in different colors of chalk that read, “Yes, He Cares.” My heart welled up. Message received. I Found God today in a simple, profound message.

Aware of Angels

In my Bible class tonight, we read the book of Tobit. It is a beautiful story of 2 people who were going through very difficult times. They remained faithful and both cried out to God in prayer at the same time. God heard them and sent Raphael the archangel who helped and healed them. After […]

United in Prayer from Afar

When a friend found that her previous spouse was dying, she went to be with him and her children. He passed away a few days ago and she sent a link to participate virtually in the memorial service. I tuned in today. I was disappointed that the sound was not very good and it was […]

Our Lady of the Rosary

We found out this morning that today is the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary. My dad asked how the rosary came about in the first place, so I looked it up. We learned that the “desert fathers” used to pray the 150 Psalms using rocks and ropes. That type of tool was […]

Cabrini Day

Today, our state celebrated it’s first “Cabrini Day”. Our governor signed the bill replacing Columbus Day as a state paid holiday. I was amazed when I heard about it. Frances Xavier Cabrini is a Catholic saint and a woman. She was a great humanitarian and patroness of immigrants and hospital workers. There is a shrine […]

Shuv

I often go to bed with a song in my head that I think about if I wake up in the middle of the night. Tonight I had my Bible class. As we continue reading the prophets, we see that they are always calling the people to turn back to God or “shuv” in Hebrew. […]

Priests and Chaplains

My parents and I had several intentions this evening for our prayer time. Then I remembered hearing that today is Priesthood Sunday, a day to especially pray for our priests. So in our prayers we included all the priests who have made such a loving and lasting impression on our lives. We also lifted up […]

Change or No Change

I talked to my sister and my son today and in both conversations we noted what a crazy year this is. Nothing is the way we imagined it would be. And it continues. If I think something will turn out a certain way, it can be assumed that it will not. But I came across […]

Everything Stays the Same

My mom’s friend came over today and we usually get all riled up talking about politics and the state of the world. I was reminded of the Bible class I had last studying the prophet Amos. He is known as the “social justice” prophet. He warned the people that their immoral behavior and the their […]

Inspiring Faith and Strength

I visited a good friend today whose husband has Parkinson’s. She has been really struggling recently as he falls often and has difficulty with his daily activities. She has not wanted to move him into a nursing home, but has been very aware that his care is becoming more than she can provide on her […]
