I was re-born as well.
My fears of inadequacy
Instantly swept aside
A surge of motherly love and joy
rose up within my spirit and heart.
A sense of awe
at the miracle of creation overwhelmed us
as we examined tiny, perfectly formed fingers, nails and toes.
We marvelled at his resemblance to us
I was startled by the innate instinct for survival
as my newborn…
My grandson loves crocheting; perhaps he senses that every stitch is a stitch made with love. This three-month old can be cranky, tired, colicky but one look at crocheting and he stops, smiles, coos, waves his arms and legs in excitement.. this last for half an hour! great break for my beleaguered daughterTalking to Grandma’s Afgan? Yup! My grandson loves crocheting; perhaps he senses that every stitch is a stitch made with love. This three-month old can be cranky, tired, colicky but one look at crocheting and he stops, smiles, coos, waves his arms and legs in excitement..
I have been waiting for comments with fear and trepidation after writing an article on Pope Francis for CatholicStand, Finger-pointing: The “Sins” of Pope Francis . Both the pope and I were verbally berated on another article written last month on a Wednesday Papal Address. These critics seem poised, ready to pounce on any hint of his supposed sin against tradition. Pope Francis’ detractors…
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. -Oscar Wilde
Our children come from the heart of God; He knew them in the womb and they knew God.
“If I were able to leave you with only one piece of crochet advice, it would be to always have fun.
Last time I checked WebMii was a static, relevant number based solely on G+ postings; mine sat at 2.5 out of ten, every time I checked ( which was once a month or so). To my surprise, they have a whole new streamlined, clean-looking layout, accessing people’s online presence, in detail. Check out your stats. You might be as pleasantly surprised as I was at your rating.

Mary Magdalen was so called either from Magdala near Tiberias, on the west shore of Galilee, or from a Talmudic expression meaning “curling women’s hair,” which refers to an adulteress.

Mortals were created to connect with the light and energy of the unseen God who created them. In fact many who call themselves atheists are in fact spiritual people who are hungry for communion with the Holy Spirit but at least find some consolation in communion with nature. That’s why people walk, camp, go on picnics, fish, golf or to the lake or cottage. Although they are unaware of it, they…
My 61 year-old husband’s grandmother is turning 100 in a couple of weeks!!
I thought a shawl would be the perfect gift to brighten up even sleep or lounge wear for someone in a wheel chair. I did not want it too long, warm or wide so that was easy to use in a wheelchair, inside.
The pattern I used as a base was called Shimmer and Shine Scarf, not that mine shimmers or shines but I liked the…
I am appalled by commentators and writers who quickly denounce Pope Francis, often misinterpreting or twisting the meaning of his comments by taking them out of context. These critics are acting like the‘ the accuser of our brethren… which accused them before our God day and night’. [Revelation 12:7-12] They seem poised, ready to pounce on any hint of his supposed sin against tradition. Pope…
What is a farm without cats to catch mice?
