I posted a short diatribe earlier, and that's OK. If you've ever read any of psalms in the Old Testament, you know that it's really okay to ask God "why?" or to ask Him "how long?" we must endure some sort of suffering or injustice. It's also okay to let God know you are more … Continue reading Lord, have mercy on me…

This is another part of the talk I gave a couple of Sundays ago regarding a retreat with the Psalms that I participated in/led at Nellis Air Force Base's Catholic Chapel. We actually experienced 5 psalms in total. The post below is about 2 of them. I already posted about 2 others previously. So, if you missed those, … Continue reading Psalms 103 and 139
I'm continuing sharing portions of my 'mini-retreat' talk that I gave at Nellis Air Force Base. This is one of 5 psalms we experienced at the women's retreat the day prior, a Saturday. (If you missed yesterday's entry from same, I invite you to go back and read that … Continue reading Psalm 91
So, this past weekend I was blessed to lead a second retreat in as many weeks. This time it was a group of amazing Air Force wives in Nellis AFB, Nevada. It's just outside of Las Vegas and I did not do any gambling, I promise! But I did spend a wonderful day praying the … Continue reading Be Still…
My latest entry is up on the Women in the New Evangelization website! WINE is a fabulous initiative to get Catholic Women together to learn and grow in their faith, and to evangelize to others who do not know God or the faith, even if they were raised in it! It happens, believe me! I … Continue reading “Jesus I trust in You”
Psalms 9 and 10, according to my faith tradition, are always considered together since the continuation of an acrostic poem begins in 9 and continues through the 10th psalm. We're speaking of Hebrew letters here so don't go searching for A-Z in your Bible's translation of those works. Since that's the way they were written … Continue reading Blessed Are You!
In the Old Testament's 8th Psalm we read a meditation on the awesomeness of God and how insignificant we seem in comparison. And yet, we human beings are still the pinnacle of God's creation. In verse 6 we read, "Yet you have made him little less than a god, crowned him with glory and honor." Some … Continue reading “What a piece of work is man…”
Psalm 4 talks about trusting God when things get rough. I love it. As one who believes in absolute truth that comes to us through Jesus Christ who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life," it is comforting in a world where relativism is so prevalent. And what is this absolute truth? That God … Continue reading Give my heart more joy
"You, Lord, are a shield around me; My glory, You keep my head high." - Psalm 3:4 What an encouraging thought. When you're being attacked, maybe not physically, but with dishonest accusations or disparaging lies of any kind, God is with you. When you live with God's grace and know of His love and mercy. … Continue reading Keeping “my head high”
