Wedding Bears

My nephew and his wife are in a nearby city making arrangements for his next military assignment. We had planned on meeting them and other family this evening at a park. Unfortunately, my mother is still not feeling well from her recently diagnosed diverticulitis – again. However, we were very happy that my nephew made […]

Re-Fresh

The weather outside today was just about perfect. The temperature was in the mid 70’s, there was a slight breeze, and the sky was clear and blue. About a week ago, we scheduled to have the carpets cleaned today. So, we opened all the windows and let the air flow through. The whole house feels […]

Went With the Lord

Today my parents were remembering their beloved music teacher when they were young. They attended a Catholic school and the teacher was a nun. She was basically responsible for nurturing, encouraging, and improving my mother’s natural musical talent, as well as many others who crossed her path. My mom said when the woman passed away, […]

God’s Interruption

When we went to the cabin recently, we had planned on staying until Sunday. However, my mom had a very hard time sleeping, which meant that none of us got very good sleep for a couple of days. By the time Saturday afternoon came around, we decided it would be best to just head back […]

Wonders for the Soul

Before my parents started having major health issues, they used to spend about half their time at the cabin and half in the city during the summer. Since I have been with them almost 7 years now, we have made several day trips there and have stayed over a couple of nights now and again. […]

Don’t Get Distracted

Tonight my prayer group and I read and discussed the Gospel coming up for this Sunday. Part of the scripture was a parable about a person who finds a treasure (Kingdom of God) and sells everything he has to buy the field where the treasure lies. I thought that in my own life, I certainly […]

Highest Honors

I read a meme today that cut to my heart. It said, “To care for those who once cared for us is one of life’s highest honors.” Enough said. I Found God today in an inspiring quote.

Between the Storms

After spending a couple of days in the serenity of the mountains at the cabin, it was time to head home. We didn’t get out early and when we were ready to start packing the car, it started raining. And lightning and thundering and pouring for a long time. Finally there was a lull in […]

Blessing of Communion

It has been now 4 months since my parents and I have received Holy Communion and even longer since we have been to Mass. After my dad came home from rehab and before the corona virus hit, we were blessed to have an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion come to the house a couple of […]
