Incredible Inspiration

My mom participated in her online Parkinson’s exercise class this morning. After the hour long workout, they had a time for socialization. Each person had an opportunity to tell about their careers and places they have lived. It was amazing to hear the robust lives that they had. I know it is unfair to meet […]

Appreciated Support

It has been a couple weeks since my mom’s procedure to replace her pacemaker and she has been doing her best to remain active without being too strenuous. Today she felt like trying out her Parkinson’s exercise class that is held live online. She moved best as she could. After the class, the group had […]

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 […]

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 […]

Grinch Returned Easter

A friend shared a reflection with me that was written by a retired Christian pastor. It really touched my heart, so am sharing it here.

It got commercialized into bunnies and eggs, chocolate rabbits and “tip of the hat” church attendance. […]

A Real Mask

We have been told to wear a face mask now when we go outside of the house for our essential needs to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. My parents and I watched some videos that described how to sew them and how to make some without sewing. My mom sewed for years and […]

Praying With the Pope

The other day I learned that Pope Francis was offering a special blessing to those who would join in praying with him for an end to the pandemic. I found that EWTN would be airing the event, so my parents and I watched and participated from the living room. It was surreal to see Pope […]

Best Case Timing

Today my parents, brother, and I were talking about haircuts. I figured I could try to give my mom a haircut when it gets too long, but that didn’t go over too well. My dad chimed in that he was very happy he and my brother made it to their spa day before everything shut […]

Spider Bite

My sister has been feeling just terrible for over a week now. It all started when she discovered a spider bite that appeared to be infected. She made a trip to the hospital where they took care of it, took some tests, and gave her antibiotics. Two days later she came down with a high […]

Prayers Matter

Yesterday a friend told me that her mother was admitted to the hospital in a potential stroke prevention situation. She asked for prayers and tons of friends responded to her plea. After spending the night and going through additional testing, her mom was discharged and sent home tonight. That was great news. I Found God […]
