It is amazing that it had to take nearly fifty years in order for me to finally wake up to the truth - to the deepest desire of my heart -  that truly, all I want for myself and for my loved ones is to die and go to Heaven. And that to do this...I need to live right. I...

was not yesterday.

In case you thought it was.

Like I did.

And not only did I think it was the memorial of Padre Pio, but I could not get over God's impeccable timing in allowing this day to fall into my lap and land on my heart at the very moment I needed it to.

I have regrets that go as far back as to when I was small, and I have regrets that go as far back as just yesterday. I do not believe in #noregrets because I have yet to meet a person without any. I do, however, believe we can get past them, and should get past them, a...

So, my post on surrender went up on the Walking With Purpose Blog today, and as a writer, there is nothing more ironic than needing to hear what you said.  And  by "you", I mean me. These posts are written weeks in advance, and because my inner peace comes and goes qui...

Some days...most days, actually, I have no idea what the Lord wants me to do and how to do it and even though I have got this book and lots of events on the calendar I still have that whisper in my head that tells me, "you have no idea what you are doing and you should...

My mother gifted me with a gorgeous potted plant...petunias, I think. They are on my back porch and they make me smile every time I catch a glance of them. Mark my word. They will be dead by Friday.

The gift of gardening, I have not.
