Who me? I can do this!

As we continue our journey from John’s point of view in Chapter 6, Jesus creates another miracle! Jesus feeds everyone in John 6.  Did you put yourself in the story?  Are you Philip?  How will you pay for all that food?

Family Day?

On the Feast of the Holy Family, I pondered not only the Holy Family and their struggles and challenges, but my own.  Are our expectations too high?  I hoped to have the perfect Christmas celebrations that would inspire Hallmark cards.  For some reason, my family doesn’t always seem like the happy family you might expect.  We didn’t sing Christmas carols […]
