Do the trappings, clutter and clammer of Christmas leave your spiritual senses dulled, even jaded?

It’s been 4 weeks since I closed my brick and mortar business due to this pandemic. It’s the business I’ve owned and operated for 30 years. As a single mother and grandmother, for the past 17 years, it has been the way I’ve supported my family, kept a humble roof over my head and food […]
Sometimes the hardest step to take is the first step. What is there to do when you’re feeling so stuck as if your feet and your mind are in hardened concrete?!?! Maybe you’re stuck in your head or in an uncomfortable situation or a difficult relationship or dead-end job. Or maybe you’re stuck big time […]
How would you choose to live it out? You opened your eyes to a new sunrise, a new display of nature’s magnificence. You’re included in God’s master plan for humanity. How will you choose to spend it? I first thought seriously about this concept as a 17 year old high school senior. I was chosen […]

Ever wake up late or get out of bed already preoccupied with stuff and you simply let your Centering Prayer time slip away? Before you know it, you are dressed for your early morning appointment and out the door. That was me this morning. I prayed with my St. Patrick’s prayer and the Lord’s Prayer […]
I make it a habit to ask anyone I come in contact with a simple question. Whether in a store, on the street, getting gas at my local gas station, etc. when the opportunity presents itself I always ask, “How’s your day?” Most respond surprised and with a simple answer like “It’s ok.”, “Not bad.” […]
The world just celebrated the highest holiday on the Christian calendar, Easter. The day we honor the resurrection of Jesus the Christ from the grave. The day we celebrate new life. Spring reminds us that new life exists in all of nature, but Easter reminds us new life exists for each one of us. Without […]
