Hope is a Thing with Wings

“This City Never Sleeps” This city never sleeps but it sure knows how to sleep tonight And my heart knows how to beat but it don’t know how to beat right And I can see the streets but I can’t see the street signs With my eyes on the sidewalk I was lost, it was…

Let's Not-Stick With Dualism

In the post “Man is a unity” I discussed our bad habit of attempting to separate the material and spiritual.  Why is it so important we see ourselves as whole persons?  God always, always works towards union.  Therefore anything resulting in disharmony, discord and disunion is turning us away from Him.  Everything is from God…

I See You, Know You, And Love You

It is hard for me to pick favorites – songs, books, movies – but hands down, I can say for sure that One Night With the King is my favorite movie.  It is a dramatized and beautifully put together telling of the story of Esther.  She’s one of those often looked over, yet incredibly strong…

Lost in the Light of Love

After not being able to come up with a song all morning, I somehow ended up with two. The first is “Without You” by David Guetta Ft. Usher.  One of my friends introduced this to me as a secret worship song last year and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Look, even Lifeteen agrees with us! …

Watch Your Language!

I was talking to a friend recently about her future and she revealed that she really doesn’t know what will make her happy and can’t quite put her finger on what her deepest passions are.  Another friend distressingly confided in me that he feels like he doesn’t know who he truly is.  As I take…

Guest Post! "Seagulls are gross. Nobody likes seagulls."

After begging my friends for months to write guest posts, someone has agreed to be the first victim.  Enjoy! ****** “Reflections on the world’s most famous seagull” +JMJ+ Everyone probably knows by now that a seagull alighted on the “white smoke” chimney of the Sistine Chapel during the papal conclave, supposedly almost around the time…

Papa Francesco!

Well the new Pope just picked the best name didn’t he? I’m not biased… Here are my initial thoughts: 1. God always blows our expectations out of the water and the Holy Spirit loves to surprise us! Can’t wait to see what Francis’s papacy will hold. 2. Our Holy Father knows exactly what message his…

"Man is a unity": Part 1 of ????

Why is it that nervousness sends our stomachs into queasiness?  Why is it that heartbreak often feels quite literal? My best friend over at CrossfitCatholithic and I, who are in the habit of discussing deep theological matters (interspersed with giggling of course), have recently been wrestling with the relationship between body and soul.  She wrote…

Eternal Love

As a future bride of Christ, I have the bad habit of making every love song about Jesus.  I mean every song is secretly about Jesus, obviously, and I just show it for what it is.  For example, one of my favorites is “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. Heartbeats fast Colors and promises How…

Seeking the Infinite

Oh the vast infinitude of Him who is all things Oh the woeful inadequateness of mortal men He is like – He is Great – He is Holy – I AM WHO AM Who are you? I AM LOVE Love is Patient, Love is Kind – I AM WHO AM Flesh and Blood we understand – Love…
