Meteors After Midnight

Before going to bed last night, we talked about the meteor shower that was to take place. We guessed where we may be able to see it in the sky, but knowing that it would be most visible after midnight, I wasn’t counting on getting up. However, about 12:30, I heard some movement and footsteps […]

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. […]

Day of Rest

It was a cool, cloudy, and eventually rainy day today. My dad decided from the morning that this would truly be a day of rest. He woke up to take his morning pill, then went right back to sleep. My mom woke him a couple of times after that for breakfast and he just didn’t […]

Promised Peace

Over the past 2 days, I have seen a particular scripture several times from different places. Jesus said:“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am meek and humble of heart;and you will find rest for yourselves.For my yoke […]

Peaceful Twilight

It was a very calm, peaceful evening tonight. My mom and I spent time just sitting on the deck, listening to the sounds of nature quieting down, and watching the sunlight fade. It was indeed very peaceful. I Found God today in a peaceful twilight.

Relaxing Fourth

Today was pretty relaxing – not like the way I would celebrate the Fourth of July years ago. My sister and I cooked and went for a walk and took some pictures. My parents read and did some projects. We all watched the rain showers for a while and napped. Later we listened to the […]

Enjoying Serenity

It has been a very long time since we have been to the cabin. As the weather gets warmer and our schedule lightens, we have been wanting to get back up there. We did have one attempt earlier this week, however my mom just wasn’t feeling up to it. This morning everyone was enthusiastic, so […]

Virtual Peace

Today was the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is a celebration to once again remind us of the tremendous love Jesus has for us and how He holds us close in His heart. This afternoon I thought it would be good to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I came across the National […]

Dream a Dream

Tonight my parents’ and I watched a virtual concert by the local Children’s Chorale. The ensemble consisted of several individual choirs of different ages and even an all guys group. The concert showcased recordings from Christmas and other events as well as the youth singing together virtually. It was delightful watching the energy, enthusiasm, and […]

Trinitarian Encounter

A friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago and, though the cancer is gone, he has still been struggling with his health. When I spoke to he and his wife last week, things were not going well. I spoke to them again tonight, and he told me of a spiritual encounter […]
