Whatever my opinions of the President or Congress, or anyone in government, elected or appointed, I will always pray that these public servants will remember where their duties lie. They should jealously guard the rights of our citizens which are enshrined in the Constitution. We all, (they and we), must honor the laws of our … Continue reading To Support and Defend
I heard a song a couple of days ago that I think is perfect for any time, but certainly is timely. It's a Good News message - we are made in the image of God! Imago Dei. No other creature can make that claim. Mainly because they don't have the brain capacity or development to … Continue reading “Beautiful Shades of Love”

Sorry to use the trite breakup phrase but, "It's not you, it's me." I'm aware that there are plenty of good things about Facebook, but I'm also aware of some not so great things, too. For me, the main reason I decided to end this relationship is because it wasn't fostering real relationships with my … Continue reading Why I Left Facebook…(It’s nothing personal)
Hey, everybody! So, I had a Zoom meeting with my grad thesis advisor yesterday and...we have a winner! He has signed off on my 71 page thesis! And now the other member of my committee has it and is proofreading it. We are praying (won't you join me?) that he merely reads for grammar/punctuation type … Continue reading The Light at the End of the Tunnel
The video below begins with a beautiful blessing from the Book of Numbers (6:24-26). It's a favorite Old Testament Scripture passage. It's some of the last words I ever uttered in an 'official Army wife' speech. It was my husband's retirement luncheon and I was pleased to be given an opportunity to share my thanks. … Continue reading A Blessing
A dear friend 'nominated me' for the 6 days "Life is Good" challenge on Facebook last week. I usually abstain from those types of things because I am not always diligent in doing the 'however many days' a challenge requires. But this was about posting things that give you joy and so I thought, "6? … Continue reading The Challenge
Sometimes we get our feelings hurt when we feel left out or overlooked. It's important for us to try to remember those around us who we might at times take for granted. Or even worse, who we stop seeing. One of the things I tried really hard to do as a senior Army wife was … Continue reading Thoughts on Mother’s Day
I got to speak to the Military Council of Catholic Women today during their Day of Reflection. I was honored and humbled to be asked. Unfortunately, because it is a 'closed' Facebook group (members only), I can't share that particular video with you here.But I have posted my remarks below. I don't say them word … Continue reading On the practice of the presence of God and detachment
You wouldn't think that it is - busy, I mean - given our current circumstances, but it is! I haven't had time to write much here lately and that's because we are coming up to the end of the spring semester! That means papers to write, oral presentations to be planned and given. Not to … Continue reading Life is busy!
