I am sharing this late in the day because I've been visiting my grandkids! But today is the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene, so here's something I wrote a while to honor her faith in Jesus. I aspire to be like her. https://drowning-in-lemonade.com/2021/02/07/on-sunday/
Something to meditate upon this Good Friday… https://youtu.be/NegD8s3pUpw We could never thank You enough. But we can vow to live our lives worthy of the sacrifice.
On this Palm Sunday and in the final days of this Lenten season, I thought it was time to share once again this poem I wrote several years ago… Can you see Him? He’s there with that angry mob. No, he’s not he menacing one. He’s the peaceful One, the serene One, the holy One. … Continue reading Holy Week meditation
Yesterday's Gospel reading was the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery. Ultimately, it's a story about God’s mercy and about our compassion for one another.

Those two word - God's grace - are my watchwords for 2022 and, I hope, the rest of my life. I have written about grace many times, but right now it is becoming clearer to me that I need … Continue reading Drop the cup
Pope Francis has invited everyone to make the 2nd of March, Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, a day of fasting for peace. He actually asks for us to devote our time to "intensely" praying and fasting on that day. So, what's that about? You may well ask! During the 40 days of Lent … Continue reading Ash Wednesday
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.
