I can’t imagine living this life not believing in God. Whenever I have those moments of doubt, or turn my back ever so slightly on God, the world seems so dark and foreboding. When I am in concert with God—even with all my sins—his Continue reading “God’s Splendor Overcomes Any Darkness”
If You Don’t Listen for God You Will Never Hear Him!
If you don’t open your eyes and ears to God you will never find him, much less hear him. I know this sounds too “religious” and unreal to some. I was one of those “some” not many years ago. You hear what is blaring from your Continue reading “If You Don’t Listen for God You Will Never Hear Him!”

My Eulogy to My Mom
If you did not know my mom, the eulogy I delivered may not make a lot of sense; but some of it will. What you should know is that How Are Things in Glocca Morra? was my mom’s “theme song,” as so many know. My mom had a wonderful voice and she sang Glocca Morra with such passion. She has now arrived in her Glocca Morra—heaven.

Must Read — Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife
Here is a must read story from Newsweek—Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife. I highly recommend you read it, especially if you question “what’s next” after this brief life.

God, What Do You Think I Should Do?
“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
