I was presented with a gift by a young lady I had the pleasure of meeting last week. We happened to be at the same place at the same time for two completely different reasons, but such is the way of Providence. She gave me a little book that contains the wisdom of St. Alphonsus … Continue reading Give Him Everything
I wish more people knew their story. It's a great story of salvation. It needs to be told so that everyone can know that each one of us matters. Very much. There is a Creator who is not just the "supreme being." He's actually not a being at all. This Creator is the sheer act … Continue reading Do you know the story?
I shared this in a comment section of David French’s Sunday Dispatch column, The French Press. My response got several “Likes” so I decided to post it here, too! Jesus tells us to love one another. And New Testament Scripture basically says “they’ll know we are Christians by our love.” If we Christians really lived … Continue reading Thoughts on Christians

But you've got to get wisdom where you find it. So, here you go. Pints with Aquinas is … Continue reading Taking time out
I'm a huge fan of the Psalms. I have been for decades. There is so much there to show us how to really be honest with God. As I always say, God knows our hearts anyway. We shouldn't even try to "put a good face" on things if we're miserable, or scared, or worried. God … Continue reading Psalm 27
Yes, as the song below asserts, Moms matter. You betchya. And so do Dads. But this song is about our moms. And it's beautiful. Matthew West sings a lot about every day people and every day life. I love his songs, and his messages. So simple, direct, and just beautiful. Watch the video I've shared … Continue reading Helping our kids
We are blessed with beautiful roses all around our home. It's just a rental, not our "forever" home. But the only real forever home is Heaven; Heaven in the eternal Presence of the Lord.

If you're not familiar with St. Teresa of Lisieux, you really should get to know her. I've embedded a helpful link so you can learn about her "little way." It's a way of life and, when practiced out of love for God and His people, it leads to real joy and inner peace. I entitled … Continue reading the little way
