WHO IS AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST?

PUT GOD AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST!
I use to be addicted to all kinds of self-help and new age spiritual books! Reverting back to Catholicism has been the best self-help and spiritual growth program EVER.
I heard the church bells from St. Teresa of Avila Catholic church calling me back several years ago while out on one of my morning runs (yep, use to be addicted to running too and addictions are distractions that pull us away from God) but it still took a few years before I actually went back. My neighborhood is right next to the church.
God planted many seeds, including many varieties of fruits and flowers. Designed to help me put Him first. But I had to take the steps to enjoy His gifts.
Reconciliation is one of those gifts, which I have to admit I didn’t understand the fullness of in my less mature days, provided the healing power of God that could be found no where else in my life. Do I still stumble? Absolutely. Do I still have things to tell the priest at confession time? You can be sure I do.
In a secularized society it isn’t always easy. With the help and love of Jesus, The Holy Spirit, The Blessed Mother Mary, with the saint and angels, I am inspired to keep God first!

Grace be with you on your journey!

P.S. I STILL LOVE THOSE CHURCH BELLS!

Holy New Year

20190101_110759

One of the gifts I received last year was the gift of embracing the fact that I’m a sinner. Yuck, those words tasted rotten in my mouth and were running a foul in my mind, but that didn’t make them any less untrue. I found a wonderful cleansing start was the sacrament of Reconciliation. I have now made that sacrament a habit, a discipline.  Romans 3:23 ~ “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” I realize I don’t belong to me, I belong to God and even though I fall short I need to continually strive for holiness. Thus I need to make a new life in Christ. Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
What a grand way to start this new year, taking this next step, consecration to God. So this is preparation time! 
Now let me get going with The Jesus Team, it’s game time! Seems that Psalm 119 is a great place to begin. God create in me a miracle.

Getting Ready for the New Year

Well low and behold, I’m back.

I’m not really sure if anyone noticed or not. Since reverting back to Catholicism I’ve been on quite the adventure and it hasn’t stopped. Actually it keeps going deeper. Deeper and deeper with Our Lord Christ Jesus. While I was absent I did a Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and it seems as though I’m about to go on a years long journey now. I’d be honored if you want to come along for the ride.

Obedience to God! Yep, that’s what this is about!

I’ve been guided by The Holy Spirit to take on and study the book of Sirach as well as Psalms 119 for 2019, not just read them, but really study them and allow The Holy Spirit to direct their messages of truth (for non-Catholics, your denomination chose to remove Sirach from your bible, you can google that and come to your own conclusions, I have mine).  The Book of All-Virtuous Wisdom of Yeshua Ben Sira, commonly called the Wisdom of Sirach or simply Sirach, also knows as the Book of Ecclesiasticus. It is a work of ethical teaching, a very enlightening book, now it’s time to study.

I Love when The Holy Spirit guides me to dive deeper.

I’ll be starting this years long study on January 1. I’m sure I’ll be blogging a lot.

D.O.G. (Daughter of God) and your sister in Christ,

I SAID YES TO GOD

Our Lady of Seven Sorrows.
On September 26th I began reciting the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Mary for #40daysforlife. After struggling for years for having an abortion in the mid 80’s I had finally found forgiveness for myself and reconciliation with God. I had tried many ways to heal from this deep pain but it never felt like it was healed until I returned to the Catholic church and came back into full communion with His Holy Church and the Holy Eucharist after being gone for decades. Now my decades consist of rosary decades 😉😍😉.

Now my work to be a voice for the unborn has begun. Not an easy step because Satan and his demonic advocates tell you to keep quiet, that you had already killed another life, that any speaking out would be hypocritical, and that you would be detrimental to your own life if you were to say or do something because you haven’t honored life in the past.
Yet something happens when you give your whole heart to the Lord. He gives you the opportunity to make you an instrument of a Higher Will. So I said Yes to God!

Grace be with you on your journey
