  • Finding Comfort In Where You Are… And Not Knowing Where You Will End Up

    Yesterday, I was pondering over how Mary must have felt when she was told by an Angel that she was the favored one to bear Jesus Christ. Her life was definitely transformed and changed forever. She had no frame of reference to lean on, or a Mother’s guidebook for rearing the Christ child. She didn’t […]

  • Nine Months…

    It’s been nine months. Nine months of stay-at-home orders and daily briefings. Nine months of seeing family & friends through screens. Nine months of sadness, fear, and mourning. That’s such a long time. But do you know what else we can do in nine months? We can grow and birth new life into the world. […]

  • Reading to the Cat in Advent

    Story taking place in time – place being peace a small room book-lined, a blue chair grey cat upside down beside you pretending sleep, listening as if knowing what the story is about in its own version – a happiness of words taut with attentiveness – the story tightens:  in the middle of the farmyard […]

  • A Special Friend

    Marble introduced me to Ed Drayton. His name and telephone number was given to  me as someone who might want a tele-friend. Our first call was friendly as we tried to discern if we were compatible. We agreed to talk weekly and thus began my weekly sessions with someone who was just a voice on the phone. We […]

  • The Gift of the Scarf

    I have a passion for woven items, particularly scarves. I love the way they drape, protect and provide warmth when needed.  The Bible in Exodus 35:25 honors our sister weavers: And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple, […]

    Mary, Did you Know?

  • Love

    Love is work. Love is action. Love is a deep, whole                   investment in others. Pay attention to                   how much you’ve hoped,                   how much you’ve cared. You know how to Love. by Tony Angeline, LeCora Okeagu, Agustin Fuentes, Susan Ceely Philips

  • A Light Unto My Path

    Visiting the monastery that weekend was one of the first outings I’d made after finding myself alone, my husband’s words still ringing in my ears – that he no longer wanted to be married.  But I’d never arrived at nighttime – never realized just how dark it could get in this most secluded place.  I parked, got […]

  • The Arrival of a First Grandchild

    Our first grandchild was born recently—so many times during her birth, I thought of Mary with awe.  You see, my daughter was supposed to be at the hospital bright and early on a Tuesday morning.  Upon arrival, they found there was no room for them.  After being shuffled around many times, they finally were settled […]
