I'm going back to graduate school next week. Yikes! I am almost positive that this is what I should be doing. In fact, the only trepidation is my own lack of confidence in my mental abilities at this point in life. I'll be 58 in a few weeks. What am I thinking? I started a … Continue reading How’d I end up here?
I'm re-blogging a post from October of 2017. It's about happiness. I am sharing again because I have a lot more followers now than I did back then. And I'm sharing because I wrote recently about the Nation's founding documents, including the Declaration of Independence. It starts there and moves on to some personal stuff. … Continue reading Pursuit of Happiness – 2
In the mid-1990's Christian singer/songwriter Rich Mullins released this song based on the Apostle's Creed. It's a beautiful song and I am including the link to the YouTube video here. What do you believe? Can you defend that belief, if you have to? Can you share that belief as Christ wants us to do, so, … Continue reading Creed
Recently on various podcasts I like to listen to I was reminded that people like to hear stories. And, not only that, but a psychiatrist said we love to be in our own stories! That we establish for ourselves from a very early age the narrative that is our own life. I know just about … Continue reading What happens next?

In listening to this story about a shepherd leaving 99 other sheep undefended to chase down the one who is lost, we are meant to see just how much God loves each one of us. … Continue reading “Pazzo d’Amore”
So, a couple of Sundays ago, another of my posts was first shared on the Women In the New Evangelization blog site. And, because I am such a dope sometimes, I forgot to post it here, too! Thankfully, they archive all their old bloggers' entries and I was able to capture the link to share … Continue reading Another WINE entry
In the classical Roman definition of virtue there is a connotation of manliness. Vir actually means 'man' in Latin. Virtus transformed over time to mean any type of personal excellence and that is a very good thing so that women, too, may strive to be virtuous without any need to abandon any of their femininity. … Continue reading Virtus
When I moved to California in January of this year, I felt strongly that God was leading me to help out in the pro-life movement somehow. I didn't know how or why, other than I've been a believer in the right to life for every person since I can remember. No one should be swept … Continue reading The Way Ahead
I posted this last year, and depressingly, the year before that. And I'm posting again because it's still relevant. I wasn't planning on this today, but then the mass shooting in my beloved El Paso happened. And I felt compelled to share what I've shared after 2 other terrible and too eerily similar events. Who … Continue reading The Discussion We Need to Have
