As some (or all of you, if you’ve been paying attention!) know, Children #’s 2, 3, 4, and I are currently residing in a homeless shelter. It isn’t bad. It’s not ideal, of course, but at least we have our own room and bathroom. There is a kitchen that we share with several other rooms. Continue reading “The Face of the Shelter”
Hello? Are you there? I can’t see you! Where are you? Why must I face it in loneliness? Where have you all gone? Fair weather or foul, I am here. Where are you?
I have been hesitant to write this post, although, if I’m being honest, this is the reason I started writing the Apparitions posts in the first place. The difference with this set of apparitions is that not only is it current, it is still happening today. Therefore, it cannot be an officially documented apparition byContinue reading “Apparitions – Medjugorje”
What means it to be Christian?
I have written before regarding Child #1’s strange behavior, but I want to explain and ask for prayers. My firstborn daughter was stressed when I dropped her off at college last Fall for her Senior year. She told me she did not need me to stay to help her arrange her room, even though IContinue reading “My Daughter, the Witch?”

I’m undergoing physical therapy and working on my exercises everyday. We’ll see. So, what have IContinue reading “Things You Didn’t Know I Did To Stay Busy While I Recuperate”
God calls. I answer. Where to?
As Christians we “celebrate” (or more accurately endure) Lent. Lent is the forty days before Easter (minus Sundays) when we fast, pray, and deny ourselves some earthly pleasure. This is why a common question in my faith is “What are you giving up for Lent?” In fact, child #3 was asked this very question lastContinue reading “What Are You Doing for Lent?”
This morning, my mother sent me a forwarded e-mail from one of her favorite sights. Sometimes these quotes are beautiful, and sometimes, I find them barbed with intention of what my life should be and isn’t. That’s probably just me projecting, but nonetheless, is how I sometimes feel. Today’s quote, however, struck a chord withContinue reading “Most Uplifting Quote”
