If you want to read about my running habits, look no further

In all of the most-honest honesty, I already wrote this blog post once. I wrote it on my handheld device, accidentally hit the “back” key twice, erased it all, looked up and exhaled through my neck tension, and decided to go to bed. That was two nights ago. So: HERE WE ARE AGAIN. Fun (??)... Continue Reading →


The uppity ups and the downity downs. Such is community life.

Paul has mono. This is unfortunate. His voice sounds like maybe how your voice would sound if (1) you were trying to talk but also trying to gargle saltwater at the same time, so your mouth was full and your lips couldn’t close and your head was tilted back at an odd angle and (2)...

Projectssssss and prayers

Sunday was Divine Mercy Sunday. It's kind of a newer devotion, even for Catholics. Here's your background: in the 1920's, a nun from Poland (Sister Faustina) started receiving visions of Jesus who urged her to spread this particular message that Jesus wanted to pour mercy, mercy, mercy upon his people.

Numbered thoughts

I have things I want to say, but not a lot of time to dedicate to them because, by golly, I'd love to pray prayers and wash my face and be in bed by a reasonable hour today. Because, checking all of those boxes may be something I'd love to do this week. Instead, talk... Continue Reading →

Easter-y things. <3

Father Pio called me. ❤ And he wished me, “…many, many, life-changing, heart-expanding Easter graces." Isn’t that lovely? And, so was Easter. Surprises and friends and prayer times. The best times. My favorite thing is the Easter Vigil. And it isn’t everyone’s favorite thing, but it is my favorite thing. Because I love listening to... Continue Reading →

Holy Week Things

So. It’s Holy Week. On Sunday I leaned Against the dark-stained pew, Eyes closed, Reciting the sacred story With the faithful. There was a gold-gilt cross in the sanctuary, My favorite Lenten hymn, And moms standing with cameras When I walked in, Photographing their children altar-servers. Holy Week is so many things, So many experiences.... Continue Reading →
