Hey, y’all!   How’s everybody doin’?  Hope all is well and you’re celebrating Advent with me!  Grab a cuppa something and find a comfy spot to relax a minute.  Let’s talk about the underlying premise of Advent.  I saw something recently in nature that was a great analogy!  A few weeks ago, I saw the lunar eclipse of the ‘super moon’.   The moon was extremely bright, but that eclipse overshadowed it, changed its entire color and appearance, and hid it from view for a while.  It was quite beautiful in many parts of the world.

‘Tis (still) the Season!

Hey there!   Merry Christmas!   No, I’m not crazy.   (At least no more than usual.)  Grab a cuppa something hot, pull up a comfy chair and I’ll tell you why I’m still saying “Merry Christmas!”  well into January!  Okay, so technically, some folks think Christmas was officially over on the 11th.   Some folks are going to keep right on celebrating until February 2!  It all has to do with Continue reading

Come Adore Him

Merry Christmas!!!  We made it!  Today is December 24, Christmas Eve day.   Just so you know, this will be my only post this week.  Read it twice if you want.  😉   Today I want to do something different.  I don’t want to get comfy with a cuppa anything.  I want to focus with laser intensity on the Reason for the Season.  Sometime in the next 36 hours or so, let’s spend some time with Joseph and Mary, the wise men and the shepherds, Continue reading

It’s a gorgeous fall day today as I write, even though I won’t post this until mid-December.  The sun is shining, the trees are turning, the temps are cool.  Perfect!  So, we all know what’s just around the corner – Continue reading

Advent Joy!

Hey there!  Glad you’re with us today.   Hopefully you’ve been able to slow it down a tick and enjoy the season of Advent at least a little bit this year.  It’s really hard in our society, but it can be done.  And slowing down can lead us away from the frazzled holiday atmosphere, and lead us into His peace.  I promise it’s well worth the effort!

Today puts us nearing the final week of Advent.  The color this week has been  Continue reading

Something About Mary

Hello and welcome!  If you’ve been following along, you know that I see threads of faith running through everything in life.  Those threads are what I’ve chosen to blog about.  I find wonderful direction, comfort and friendships in my Christian faith.  I hope you can find those things right along with me.  So, grab some tea and get comfy!

After I was drawn to the Catholic faith, I had the two usual hang ups- The Eucharist and Mary.  The Eucharist resolved Continue reading

Preparing the Way of the Lord

Hello there!   Is is cold where you are?  As I write, it’s 30 degrees here – and it was 67 yesterday!  We’re talking about Advent this month, and I wanted to piggyback on something I wrote before, and tell a story.  So, grab a cuppa something warm, and find a comfy place to sit down and relax a minute.  Remember awhile back, I asked if you were Continue reading
