Safe Delivery

A young woman I know was super excited to be expecting a baby in February. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Covid earlier this month. She was pretty ill and the baby was experiencing distress. We started praying to Our Lady of Lourdes. The young woman was able to recover enough to deliver the baby. He […]

Friend’s Surprise Vaccine

Like most people, we have been watching for the opportunity to receive the coronavirus vaccine. My parents and I are all connected to the same health care system. They sent us each an email a couple weeks ago stating that they would let us know when it is our turn to get the injection. At […]

Personal Prayer of Thanks

As I have been continuing to study the book of Isaiah in my bible class, I read about Hezekiah who was a king of Judah. He was stricken with a life threatening disease. However, he had faith, prayed and trusted God. Because of this, God healed him and gave him an additional 15 years of […]

Covid Scare

A few days ago, my son told me he was home sick with a fever and congestion. He seems to always get sick around this time of year with the same kind of thing, but to be safe and responsible he got a Covid-19 test that day. I had just been with him 2 days […]

Working With God

I talked with a friend today and got caught up on family happenings. We discussed covid for a while as she, her husband, her daughter, and her son-in-law all work in the medical field and all live in the same home. Thankfully, none of them – or the toddler in daycare – have had any […]

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 […]

God is Outside

I am so blessed to be living in such a gorgeous place. We can count on there being sunshine almost every day of the year. My dad in particular loves sitting on the porch and was outside much of the day today. A friend started reading the diary of Anne Frank and shared a couple […]

The Best Medicine

I found a couple of shows on TV tonight that were just plain fun entertainment. One was “Masters of Illusion”. We watched the amazing acts including a hilarious pick-pocket. My mom and dad recounted how my grandfather who was a magician also had a pick-pocket routine. They laughed as they explained how his “patter” – […]

Recovery is Possible

This morning our neighbor told me about 2 people he knew who contracted the coronavirus. They live in different places and their cases are not related. One was an elderly family member and the other was a good friend. Both of them had bad enough symptoms that they were hospitalized. One of them had said […]

Six Words

During the Mass that we watched today, we heard a woman talk about her experience when she participated in “Alpha”, which is a way of bringing people together to talk about their Christian faith. She had an amazing story of how the group was exactly what she needed at that exact time. She was happy […]
