A Story of Intercession: Getting to Know My Mama Mary

A Story of Intercession: Getting to Know My Mama Mary

This space has been quiet lately. I’ve been quiet lately. We recently journeyed through the Passion of our Lord and celebrated His Resurrection. My focus has been on my own journey and where God is leading me. It is not away from writing, but my journey has taken me on a bit of a detour. I can relate very closely with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, from yesterday’s Gospel reading. After Jesus’ death, they returned to their hometown…

Disney Fun in Our Easter Baskets

Disney Fun in Our Easter Baskets

With Easter being only one month after our trip to Florida and Walt Disney World, I decided to keep our memories alive with a few Disney-themed mementos. My children have been admiring these little toys called Tsum Tsums for awhile now. We have seen them at Target and Walmart. Just before Easter, Target and the Disney Store hosted a “buy two, get one free” sale, so that came in handy when buying six of these cute friends. I hid seven…

Egg-stravagant Hunt

On this #EasterWednesday, I found the perfect post for the #WorthRevisit link up! I wrote this five years ago, and oh how little my children look in these photos! While we did not get this egg-stravagant with our Easter Egg Hunt this year, we have fond memories of past Easters and the joy of sharing the Resurrection with others.

Five Ideas to Celebrate the Easter Season

This Easter, plan on going on your own Emmaus walk. Photo via geograph.org.uk. As you probably already know, Easter is not just a one-day holiday in the Catholic Church. It is a 50-day season of celebrating and meditating on Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead, the event on which our entire faith is centered. During the Octave of Easter, which is the eight days between Easter Sunday and Divine Mercy Sunday, it is as if each day is Easter Sunday!…

Happy Easter!

Jesus Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! “O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory? Christ is risen, and you are overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen.

For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. To Him be…

Egg-stravagant Hunt

This Easter Sunday, we hosted our very first Easter Egg Hunt. We invited extended family and those neighbors who were in town. We ended up with 17 children participating, and we hid more than 270 eggs! Hiding so many eggs was not difficult this year, because we do not have a lot of landscaping or trees, yet. So, many of the eggs were simply scattered across our lawn. Inside the eggs were jelly beans and other candy … and some…
