Freedom: what is it and are we living it?

Freedom has become such an ideal that it is almost idolized. Have we lost sight of freedom’s true meaning? Tomorrow we celebrate Independence Day.  I would like to offer you some points to meditate on while preparing for this holiday.
In light of our unhealthy obsession with autonomy and individualism, why are we celebrating independence and division?

O Felix Culpa

I’ve been avoiding this post like the plague ever since the Holy Spirit put it on my heart.  I’ve come up with all sorts of other neat ideas for posts and God still nudged me towards this.  No, this is not my last post (although that will be coming soon enough). Writers are made completely…

Bungee Jumping FTW!

I am a fan of the abbreviation FTW, (For The Win) especially in conjunction with Holy Spirit, FTW.  However, my dear friend (God bless her), is a little, well, dense sometimes.  One day she poked her head out from under her rock (which is bigger than mine, but most certainly more Holy!)  and asked what…

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…

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…

Where Have All the Good Men Gone?

Lately God has made me painfully aware of the lack of good men in our world.  I’m not sure when or how this trend started, but true masculinity is under severe attack in the world today.  Traditional manly traits and chivalry are scorned by feminists; a scandalous amount of children are growing up without fathers.…

Would You Like Some Cheese With That Whine?

  Is it bad that amidst all this complaining about equality and rights, I want to remind people of what we tell little children – “life isn’t fair!”?  Now that is my knee-jerk snarky response.  Let me explain why I think all the whining about fairness and equal rights is getting us nowhere. Firstly, what…

Jesus and Peter Have a Heart to Heart

Apparently commenting on the daily readings is going to become a theme.  Today, the gospel was one of my favorite bible passages. From the Gospel of John 21:15-19: After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them, he said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more…
