Still searching

It occurs to me today that my life seems to be all about searching. When something is not going the way I would like it to I start looking for a way to improve it. All aspects of my life fall under this scrutiny. I wonder if used correctly this is Gods way of bringing me closer to Him.
I always feel as if I'm short the time and attention He deserves in my life. So I am always searching for a better way to get closer to Him.
Prayer, meditation, simple conversation, acts of love and mercy to my fellow man. Its the sitting down and being quiet part I have trouble with. The ability to just be, to just open my heart and mind to listen to His voice speaking to me. I seem to find Him in the faces of the people around me. Maybe He knows its the best way to reach me.
I am often humbled by Christ' presence in others. Seeing Him in their eyes, hearing Him in their voices, feeling Him in their touch. God is all around us its true. I just look forward to the day when he truly will hold me in His arms.

Living without fear.

This is my new goal. To live with out fear. To offer to God all of my anxiety and trepidations. To find a road in my life designed by God and follow it. I am sure I will hit a few potholes on the way but I will with His help get up, dust off and move forward. I have been blessed with a husband who has always been guiding me closer to God. I have let my personal pride get in the way of following him like I should. No longer. I will walk with my husband into the light of God and the three of us shall make this journey together.

Holy Thursday

We went to Mass this evening for Holy Thursday . Our Lords last supper when he instituted the Eucharist. He reclined at table with his friends. They talked, laughed, told stories. These men were Christs best friends. He spent 3 years of his life with them. Every day all of the ins and outs of everyday life. He of course taught them, educated them on all the things God needed them to know. He was preparing them for what was to come. His death and resurrection. Only for him to come back for 40 more days and help them become the men God truly designed them to be. The leaders of His church.
To have been able to sit at His feet. To listen to the sound of His voice. These are the ideas that send a tingle down my spine and butterflies in my heart.
What can we do now to be worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven? What can our sinful souls do to show Christ how much His sacrifice means to us? We who have been given the greatest gift ever given, the gift of life, eternal life.

Happy Birthday Buddy.

This is my pal and today is his 7th birthday. When this little man was born I was over the moon with his red hair and blue eyes. He really resembles my side of the family which is a bonus. He was a dream as a baby and over all has been a dream to raise. He is famous for his kisses. This guy will kiss anybody he loves without abandon. His favorite is to take my hand kiss it and utter the words every woman longs to hear. "as you wish" (yah we have seen the princess bride a few times) He will make a wonderful husband someday. I am so proud of the person he is becoming . I love you son with all my heart.

To have neglected this so badly

Oh how sorry I am to have neglected my blogs so badly. I forget how therapeutic it can be to just get it all out.
The weather here is still dark and cold. I keep trying to not wake up each day and wish for spring and instead it works out to be every other day that a little wish passes through my lips. Yesterday however as I stood at the sink washing dishes a bright red cardinal flew by. It was like he just came by for me. That zap of brilliant color in the picture of a grey world out my window felt like a memo from God saying, "Things may feel hopeless at times in your life but I am always here, I will be watching and waiting for you, I am the presences of warmth and color in your life."
It makes me think of how we get so attached to this earthy world. Thinking this must be the best there is and how we are afraid to leave it. If this world is just the grey part of our short lives here on earth and that little cardinal with its bright color is the heaven that awaits us than we must remain focused on the life to come.
Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that. He knew that we would get lost in our worldly obsessions, transfixed on the here and now. He knew that he had to bring us the kingdom of God and open the Gates of Heaven for us. The question is will we accept the invitation? Will we do what is required of us to gain our place with God for all eternity? Will we leave this grey world for the brilliance of Heaven?

True Love

I' ll bet you thought you'd find a picture of my husband or one of my kids. Well of course I love them but, this here slowcooker is the "other man" in my life right now. I have always tried to tap into the grove of the slowcooker but it wasn't until I happened upon that all my dreams came true. You won't belive what this gal can do with a crockpot. Check her out. Go ahead I won't tell your husband.
