Hello my wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ!!! It has been over five years since I started this blog and what a full journey it has been! I started it back in 2015 because I loved writing and my Catholic faith and wanted to share my thoughts, lessons, and journey over the years. You have all been so supportive and positive and I couldn't thank you enough for those who have been around for me through this all!! At this point you may be wondering if this is a goodbye or something. 😉 Not necessarily....
If you have ever prayed for patience, I'm sure you know how dangerous of a prayer it can be. The results are destined to put you in a traffic jam or run you into a difficult person. Think it is God's favorite prayer to answer... The enjoyment found giving us opportunities to grow in patience... JK. 😉
What is Heaven? Eternity with Christ. Union with Him for all of time. Time with Christ for eternity! Like seriously, Heaven is like a hangout with your best friend FOREVER!! How cool is that? Sounds amazing! Well if He's your best friend that is... Is He?
Deep down we all feel this purpose or calling in our inner most beings, but quite often we can't place it. We feel this yearning, but we may not known what for. Or maybe we already know it's for love, but we don't know with whom. So we go searching...
Hello dear friends!! Last week I had the opportunity to be a guest speaker on the Vitamin J podcast!! This is a podcast put on by a group of Catholic highschoolers to reach out to more teens and share their faith and love for Christ.
My Dearest One, You were made for such a time as this (Esther 4:14). I never makes mistakes. Instead, I saw a need and created you. I placed you here in THIS moment, this era for a purpose (1 Peter 2:9). You have a gift my child. Virtues and talents I have bestowed upon you to use for my glory (1 Peter 4:10). How will you use them?
How good God is! Even in the midst of sin and struggle He has the power to make good come out of it. He doesn't make bad things happen. It's our sin and free will that do that. But He is more powerful than sin and can make good come out of it if we let Him. In reflecting on all the "things" that are happening lately, I've come to see the blessings coming out of it. Not that I'm glad for the hardships, but I am grateful for these six blessings that give purpose to the struggle.
Just recently, I stumbled across a children's story I wrote a few years ago. I think my young mind dreamed of publishing it or something haha. Alas, that didn't happen 😉 But thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
