Relationship

It’s Time

This morning I listened to the radio for a bit and heard a special session with Sidewalk Prophets. They introduced one of their songs by saying that they felt one of the biggest things that robs us from love is the screens we put in front of our face. Instead of spending time with the […]

Love the Giver

Last week, my prayer group discussed the Gospel for this past Sunday. One of the ladies watched Mass with Fr. Mike Schmitz who posts videos through Ascension Press. She told us she thought it was very powerful and that we might enjoy watching it as well. She was right. First of all, he is incredibly […]

Near Normalcy

My sister came over today. I mean actually came over and in the house for a real visit. We each gave her a big hug and cried. While she stayed at the house for a long visit with my parents, I met a friend who I haven’t seen in months. We didn’t hug, bit still […]

Good Talk

I have been missing the caregiver meetings that I used to attend. One of the organizations was able to coordinate an online session that I plugged into this afternoon. It was uplifting as always even with the challenges of a web meeting. Tonight I met with my prayer group on Zoom. It was so nice […]

Unexpected Blessings

Tonight I talked with some friends who the husband had battled cancer over the past year or so. He has been doing very well recently and his cancer is gone at this time. They said that an unexpected blessing through it all was the closer relationship they have as a family. They speak to their […]

Mountain Top Experiences

The Gospel reading at Mass today was about the Transfiguration of Jesus, when some of the Apostles climbed a mountain with Jesus and saw Him shine in His glory. I could very much relate to the words the priest shared. He said that we all have “mountain top” experiences in which God reveals Himself to […]

Sweetest Valentine

A couple weeks ago, my crafty sister brought some valentine cards over for my mom to work on. They spent an hour or so cutting and pasting and deciding who to give them to. Yesterday, my dad sadly apologized for not having a valentine for my mom. I suggested that he might be able to […]

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. However, when I read Fulton Sheen’s words of […]

Mr. Rogers

My mom has been wanting to see the new movie, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”, and today we were able to make it happen. The movie itself was – in my opinion – very well done. It has been a long time since I have seen such a positive story of loving kindness. Without […]

Team Project

Today was cookie day. I took over the kitchen, put on my peaceful Christmas music playlist, and made 22 dozen cookies. While I was working on them, my parents worked on their Christmas cards. It has been quite a project. They recovered their mailing list and called my aunt to get new addresses. They had […]
