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?
Once we stared raising animals, which meant storing grain, I quickly changed my perception of the little creatures. I no longer cringed at the thought of our cats hunting them down and slaughtering them. Disney cuteness does not exist on a farm.

Am I Christ Centric or Ego Centric?
I was shocked when I discovered that I functioned as if I was the centre of the universe. Shocked because I did really did not grasp that my whole paradigm was skewed. Shocked because I thought I had given my life to God. Shocked to understand just how much inner transformation it takes to say with St. Paul, ” No longer I that lives but Christ that lives in…
“Quite simply, crochet feeds the human need for balance in our lives. Making something with our hands reflects something basic about ourselves…
A writing prompt asked about our dreams and nightmares.
At the moment I do not recall any recent nightmares, though a few strange dreams have haunted me for decades. One dream that lingers even in my conscious mind is an image of a city. All the low, square, flat-topped buildings are made out of a yellow/ orange brick without any doors or window. The narrow road between the buildings is paved…
