I love the concept of this article. It would be a great children’s book! If we carried this image with us each day, think how it would change our world. Each day we can put Jesus right there as we make our daily decisions. Yes, he is already right here and we can ponder “What would Jesus think” just like the motto several years ago “What would Jesus do”. Thinking about his reaction to today and our lives only brings him closer and deeper into our heart and soul. Enjoy this read.

Snowy day

Many in our area will be home tonight waiting for the ice to come-th. I immediately think what a great time to get out of my routine and see what can bring me closer to God. You to can look for a moment that you and your family can take that will be an inspiration and memory full of grace. Say a rosary, talk about your ancestors and say a prayer for them, light a candle in honor of your patron saints, turn out the lights and sing a song softly such as ” Lord prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true……. ” God has given you this little blessing of time- make good use of it!
