This is the first Mother’s Day without my mom. I know she is in a far better place. God said it was time back in October. I thank her for all that she has done, including the little fact that without her I am not alive.
If we take away the mothers we stop to exist as a people. Think about that for a few minutes. Without the mothers we don’t go on. So, let’s at least today remember that and treat our moms extra special. They deserve it.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.
May all of the mothers out there be blessed this day and all the days to come. Thank you for being you!
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Have a GREAT day, especially in your dealings with others! Just thought this verse would help.

“For while skills are essential, what sets apart the true leader is the heart. The aspirations. The dreams. The definition of success and the passion that drives him forward.”
Richard D. Phillips, The Heart of an Executive: Lessons on Leadership from the Life of King David
Leadership starts with each one of us. We all need to step up and lead in our lives. Jesus shows us the way.
Have a great, blessed day!
“God, what do you think I should do? It is the one question that has almost completely disappeared from the dialog of modern men and modern women. And it is for that sole reason that so many men and so many women lead lives of quiet desperation and animosity. If we think we can lead the lives of happiness we’re hoping for without asking that question and honestly seeking the answer to it, then we are absolutely kidding ourselves.” Matthew Kelly, in a speech at the Orange County Catholic Prayer Breakfast

There’s a left-hand turn into our church parking lot off of a very busy street. I sat there today as about 40 cars passed by without one person slowing up or stopping to let me make the left turn. And that included someone turning into church who could not even stop before turning to let me make the turn. Much to my surprise that person was Continue reading
We all know the picture—row after row of white grave markers arranged in perfect order. However, I had never been to the Omaha Beach memorial in the Normandy area of France. So, as I turned the corner I knew what I was going to see but not what Continue reading
