prayerI had the chance to sit down with some friends last week to begin the process of talking through my doctoral project. We bounced around ideas and concepts from St. Ignatius, Scripture passages, and just general thoughts as to where I should head.A point we all kept coming back to is that many people who might be drawn to what I have to say and who might consider taking part in one of my...

A co-worker of mine and I were recently walking over to the church for a funeral, and as we walked she commented on the number of people who die when seasons change.Over the years, I've noticed that too, and I guess it's just one of life's fascinating rhythms. The funeral we were headed to was for one of our volunteers, a faithful woman who had served our church well for many years.

What a crazy week it's been. My heart goes out to the poor folks who have suffered so much due to Hurricane Sandy. Recovery will take a very long time, and for many, life will forever be marked by this terrible storm.Although it seems so trivial now, I flew out to California last Thursday to attend a conference on diabetes in San Diego. Two of my brothers joined me, and the TCOYD (Take Control...

Remember to Forgive

Over the last few weeks, I've been reminded several times about the importance of forgiveness.Too often we either refuse to forgive someone for a wrong done to us, or we fail to forgive ourselves for our own mistakes. We might also feel too uncomfortable to admit our faults and seek the forgiveness of someone else. Maybe even God?

A good friend of mine is out in Colorado this weekend for a mini vacation. He hasn't travelled much, and he's out in the Denver area visiting another friend.I've enjoyed the texts and photos he's sent the last few days. I can tell he's having a great time, and the thing that he's enjoying most is the beautiful scenery and the regional food he's been trying. He's got me thinking about my own...

Where Did The Time Go?

September 25, 2012 08:07

I've found myself asking this question a lot lately. Over the weekend, I was getting ready for someone to come and paint several of the rooms inside my house.I didn't want to change colors, but just give everything a freshening up. I knew I had a paper with all the color names and paint numbers, but it took me awhile to find it. Who can remember names likeJersey CreamandCaen Stone? With a tip I...
