I don't know about you, but it seems like there's an awful lot of negative things going on in the world today.I thought that maybe after the political conventions, the rhetoric might be toned down a bit. No chance.We all keep praying for peace in our world. It seems like violence and hatred continue to raise their ugly heads more often than not. And then there's the economy, unemployment... The...

Goodbye Summer

Summer seemed like it flew by, didn't it? For many people, school is back in session this week, if it hasn't started already.When I was growing up, school always started after Labor Day. Maybe it was the same for you. Somehow, it seems a bit strange to go for a whole week, then get a three-day weekend. I guess someone knows what they're doing :)Well, now that our rhythm of life has changed a...

Over the last six months, I haven't been maintaining my eating and exercising routines that have helped me rectify some health issues. My weight has been creeping up, along with my blood sugar numbers.This hasn't happened all at once, but slowly, over time. I don't know about you, but it's easier not to think about it if changes happen over weeks and months versus hours and days.

Today, July 31st, is the Feast of St. Ignatius. I've gotten to know this great saint over the last several years, and I've also come to understand that, even though he lived nearly 500 years ago, his teachings still have an impact on us today.Instead of a long post highlighting some key points of Ignatian Spirituality, I thought I'd just provide you with a link to Ignatian Spirituality.com,...

Vacation Time

I heard a really good sermon yesterday preached by our newly ordained priest. He's from Columbia, and his messages are simple and practical.He talked about the necessity of taking vacations, of being quiet, the need for relaxation and recharging. How true.He also talked about the importance of not taking a vacation from God. So often, we do just that. We don't think much about God while we're...

Its Never Too Late

There's a popular Christian song that's getting a lot of airtime right now. By Toby Mac, the title is "Get Back Up" and, although it's not what I would call easy listening, it's very catchy and I think most people would like it. The YouTube video is below for anyone who wants a look. But the beat of the song is not important. It's the lyrics of the refrain that resonated with me, and I'm hoping...

My dog Maggie hasn't been feeling too well lately, and she's been getting me up extra early. That's o.k. with me, especially because the sun is just coming up as I pour my first cup of coffee.Today is a beautiful morning. This little container garden is just outside my kitchen door. The sun rises right behind it, and over the years, it's become one of my favorite places to pray.I change the...

Well, I am finally recovered from my three weeks of intensive doctoral studies at Catholic University.I've had three or four days to reflect upon the many experiences, and to say it was a powerful time for me would be an understatement.There is much fodder for this blog, so trust that you'll be reading about my adventures over the next several weeks. Suffice it to say that my studies have given...

This is a shot of my mom and sister on their last visit to Maryland a few years ago. I've had the chance to take mom to Assateague Island to see the famous wild ponies a couple of times, and that's where this photo was taken.
