Sorry, this post is a bit longer than my usual. But as I was thinking about it early this morning, I wanted to spell this powerful prayer out to you. I hope you find it beneficial.When I began making the Spiritual Exercises, I began working on the discipline of the Daily Examen. I can't say I was always faithful to it, but it was very beneficial when I did. I continue to strive to make it a...

The other night, I happened to catch the season finale of The Biggest Loser. I'm usually at work when the show is on, but I saw it for the first time during one of our big snow storms. I guess that was towards the beginning of the season.Having recently undergone my own weight loss journey, I was amazed at the exercise routine of these very obese people. Without a doubt, they had to have the...

First off, hope you're having a good day. I had to go to Baltimore for a meeting, and someone I work with asked me to pick up a bag of the country potatoes I wrote about yesterday. I had to go to two Trader Joe's stores before I found them :( As it turns out, they're a new item. I hope you can find them easily.When I was on my eight day silent retreat last year, my spiritual director told me...

Although it was a bit overcast today here in Maryland, it would a great day to go sailing. I haven't been too many times, but when I do go sailing, especially on the Chesapeake Bay, I realize how much I love to be around water. There's something about the immensityof what's right underneath the hull of the boat. I'm reminded of the saying, you're a little fish in a big pond.I'm pretty sure you...

I took this picture when I was out for my walk today. These geese hang out at a pond not too far from my house, and I see this little family every day. Actually, I guess you could say I live between two ponds. Throughout the day, the adult geese fly back and forth between the ponds, and my house is right below their flight pattern. It is the coolest thing to actually hear the flap of their...

In the late 90's, there was a little book that came out entitled, Don't Sweat The Small Stuff, and it became a best seller. Basically, the book is filled with little tips and stories to help us realize that we can do all kinds of things to reduce the stress in our lives.I have been doing some housecleaning lately, and one of my tasks is to donate a bunch of old books to the public library. I...

Today has been a good day. I got a lot accomplished, and now, I'm ready for sleep. Thankfully, a friend just called to remind me that he can't wind down at the end of his day unless he has the chance to read my daily post. I don't think I've ever had followers before, but it's kind of a nice feeling.So, here's a little story to think about when you're drifting off to sleep tonight. It is the...

Why Can’t We Stop It?

I generally try to stay out of politics. Everyone has an opinion, and they're entitled to them. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that things are in a real mess, with no end in sight.But, for the life of me, I simply can't understand how the politicians can't get their act together and resolve this oil spill in the Gulf Coast. At this point, weeks after it began, who really cares...
