Everyone has a choice – accept defeat or stand for victory.

The warring of our age is of spiritual battle.  For some 50 years, the current to turn America away from God is real and right in our face.  I agree with Dutch Sheets when he says, “God is never late and God’s Plan for America is not over.”

As the world waits, the peace we yearn for is the peace of Christ which is incalculable.  Peace is what evil rejects, but what the faithful count on to restore the world.  The Prince of Peace gives true peace.  Against disorder, let us pray for peace.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart, I have overcome the world.”

–John 16:33

The wise men came from the east to adore the Word made flesh in Bethlehem. They were driven by the star for a quest.  Their pilgrimage was inner seeking, like for us, to understand truth about ourselves and the world.  The quest is faith being interiorly seized for us by God.

As in the Franciscan tradition, may you receive this blessing to bless the doorpost of your home…using chalk and writing the following:

20 + C +M +B + 21 May Christ Bless This home

Through the intercession of Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar who brought the child gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, grant us always a heart full of wonder.

“Our heart is the most precious gift we can give to Christ.”

–Father Michael Payyapilly, Divine Australia

Like gold most precious, we should pray for the desire to change our delicate hearts for God.  Let us be like the Three Magi.

“I would maintain that thanksgiving is the highest form of thought and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”

–G.K. Chesterton

To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles.”

–Mary Davis

When the Word became flesh, we became divine; without it, we are nothing.  But if we walk the Christic path, the universe can assist us.

“The door to Christ is always brave, so my companions, walk your evolutionary path, open your hearts…I bless you in the name of the father, of the son and of the holy spirit.”

A RE-BLOG POST Almost A Wrap!

O Sunshine, With this post, you seem to read my mind, so I gladly re-blog it here, so worth a second look. Yes, this pandemic year has been a giant rollercoaster, but we are surviving it, especially with grace and much more gratitude…I believe, 2021 will ring out His Victory…Praise the Lord!

The Sun Shineth again!

Can you believe 2020 is almost a wrap?!

It felt just like yesterday I was screaming at the top of my lungs: HAPPY NEW YEAR! Now, here we are just twenty days shy of celebrating another new year. Though, this time I may not be screaming as loud.

2020 felt like 10 years in 1 year—-one of the shortest long years I’ve ever experienced. Everything that could have happened happened. The ups & the down, the good & the bad, death of loved ones & birth of a new born, mourning & celebration, isolation & togetherness, and etc. Irrespective of it all, I stand firm in the spirit of gratitude. I am immensely grateful. Grateful, that I am still alive to witness today. Oh what a privilege it is, and I do not take it for granted!

2020 unfolded a lot and encouraged many growths. It will take physiological abnormalities…
