A Remedy for Pride - 7 Deadly Sins series Apr 02, 2022

I associate Pride with all those ‘other people’ who are openly arrogant, self-indulged, smug. I don’t consider myself akin to those endlessly striving for stardom, recognition, glory. But I now know I’m wrong.

 

We can conveniently see Pride in others but rarely...

A Kingdom of Metanoia Mar 18, 2022

I often spiral into frustration over the lack of humanity within our governments today. From the very people who should be advocating for, protecting, and leading their people toward truth, goodness, and respect, instead, we find hypocrisy, greed, corruption within the people who spearhead our...

Jesus is a Light in Our Winter Darkness Mar 01, 2022

The room is dark.

All I can see is one small candle lit straight ahead. It’s peaceful and quiet. I am surrounded by beautiful images and statues lining the walls.

I choose a seat in the front of the room, take off my winter coat, and get comfortable. 

There is no one but me...

I Like to Schedule my Procrastination Feb 04, 2022

(The 7 Deadly Sins series = Sloth) 

I have a love/hate relationship with procrastination. Of course, I hate it when I’m up against a work deadline, but I also love it because it spurs me to action. I should try therapy to overcome this endless jumping on and off the carousel of...

Not Just One Life Jan 22, 2022

 “Waved. Just waved and walked away. Can you believe it?”

I respond with a blank stare at Vicki.

“Did she really do it?”

I can’t grasp her decision. Can’t understand choosing that decision.

I reach for my friend’s hand. Even without words, the touch...

Will He Call Me Dad? Dec 17, 2021

It has been the craziest couple of weeks. But they fit perfectly with the insanity of the past few months. If hind sight is 20/20 then what is foresight? I could use a little of that right now.

Hmm… What to do … what to do?

She’s not feeling well. I’ve got to find a...

A Thrill of Hope Dec 10, 2021

This Sunday, with almost two weeks left before Christmas, St. Paul tells us to “rejoice always!”

Do you feel like you rejoice always? Or rejoice at all? Do you have joy in your daily life? 

I’m going to make a confession here: I am a very naturally happy, nay, joyful...

A Creative Advent Dec 03, 2021

The second week of Advent is upon us which means of course, there are only three more weeks before Christmas!

As a child, whenever Advent came around, I always wished I could fast forward through it as quickly as possible so that I could get to Christmas sooner! However, now that I am an adult, I...

Our new liturgical year is inviting us Nov 28, 2021

Am I the only person who feels cheated by the calendar this year? Adding the first Sunday of Advent to Thanksgiving weekend is a game changer for me.

Lighting the lone purple candle on the Advent wreath within a short three days of Thanksgiving interrupts my holiday rhythm. This year is...
