On the door handle is a package of Pirates Booty popcorn hanging … Continue reading Good God, it’s Friday!
Good morning friends, it's been a while. Whew. My head is overfull of ideas and sometimes that makes it hard to get anything done. Seriously. I'd like to share with you an interview with Quilter on Fire. Brandy is a wonderful interviewer. I'm a quilter.

We're going into Liturgical Cycle B for the Sunday readings and Year II for the daily readings. And we've settled on the recently released from Word … Continue reading Forty Days of Prayer for Quilters Day 19: Flip the Script

My guy and I went to the parish that is physically closest to us Sunday morning before heading out for a bit. Our habit is to arrive about half an hour before the beginning of the Liturgy to pray, reflect, and read, to settle our hearts and minds, to prepare for this moment when heaven … Continue reading Drops of Grace

We had twelve amazing years with my mother-in-love. There were some challenging moments as we learned to live together, each one worth it. I miss her physical presence even now.
