Happy Pilgrims. Those were the words I read this morning. They sounded more to me like an oxymoron than a spiritual taunt, but it intrigued me. It had been several weeks now since I had discovered that my restless spirit was not a curse, but a blessing. But I did not yet have a name… Continue reading The Pen of the writer is the Staff of the pilgrim
Some time ago, God answered my prayers and allowed me to write as part of a devotional team at my church. Out of all of the things that my heart longs to write, I love devotionals the most. I have a meditative spirit, one that longs to rest and dwell in the shadow of the… Continue reading The Waking Hours- Why we cannot leave our children out of our prayer life
The shoes were not quiet. I scurried into the 8 am mass wondering what I was doing there. Earlier in the morning, God told me I wouldn’t be praying that early morning rosary; that it would be prayed at a later time. But it’s day 53, I thought. When would I have the time? I… Continue reading High heels at mass
I began praying the 54 day Novena devotion yesterday. I started it in praise to God, as I found I had not been giving Him enough praise in my life. And I am not talking about the “thank you God” type of praise. I am talking about the praise due to the creator of the universe, the… Continue reading Enter the faith

Or do we enter the sanctuary to make decisions, allow the silence of our hearts to commune with God, engrave His name like a seal as a reminder of whose decision it really is? (Exodus 28:21; 28-29). Decisions should… Continue reading The breastpiece of decision
One word from God and we are forever changed. It could be an I love you or I am here or be still. But His voice in the silence changes everything, changes us. Silence at times needs to be forced, we are not good at it. And I am not talking about the meditative kind… Continue reading The altar of my words
“In every place where I cause my name to be invoked I will come to you and bless you.” Exodus 20:24 There is an altar in each one of our homes. A sacred space, a sacred place where God’s name reigns. It may be in a physical form, statutes of His Sacred Heart enthroned or… Continue reading An altar of Earth Make for me
There are days I long to write, but my hands are bare. God has bound them, because the idea has not yet formed itself, because I am incomplete, because the words are not in a state that can be read. This refinement process is often brutal, constricting… torturous. Sometimes I sit two, maybe three days… Continue reading The Wood and the Water
Good morning all you lovely people. For the remainder of Lent, I am taking a break from social media. If you need to get in touch with me, you can email me. Please also do not hesitate to contact me for prayer or if you need to talk. Love you all. See you after Easter!
“Therefore choose life, so that both you and your offspring may live, and so that you may love the Lord your God, and obey his voice, and cling to him (for he is your life and the length of your days)…” Deuteronomy 30:19(b)-20(a) CPDV “It is good to hope in silence for the Lord’s deliverance.”… Continue reading Are you following Jesus?
