St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

7 Quick Takes:: Life Lessons

Lesson #1.
Sometimes when you're stuck, a good walk on a crisp morning, will open that door that was stuck, and the ideas, finally come flowing in.


 Lesson #2
Letting people be nice to you is as important as being nice to people.
Kindness opens the door for the graces to flow whether you are kind to someone, or they are kind to you.

 Lesson #3
When it's your birthday, and you are with a group of friends, and one of them says, "If I had known it was your birthday, I would have brought you a crown to wear," then looks at you and realizes you are already wearing a tiara, continue to smile and enjoy their company!  They are as quirky as you are!  Some friends just have a hard time keeping track of birthdays.

Lesson #4
There really are differences between female children and male children, even if they are adults.

See that edible fruit?
My daughter surprised me with this collection of fruit and chocolate.
My 6'4" tall, handsome son, sends me a text:
"Mom, remember that time Dad bought you a tackle box?
Trust me, I don't fish.
I am going to buy you a jersey of (someone I don't know.  It's a 2XX.  I'll try it on and see if it fits."
Ummm, no.  
Oh, well, it's better than a tackle box.

Lesson #5
Take care of your health!

Ladies, October is Breast Cancer awareness month.
Get those boobies crunched.

Lesson #6
Like this exploding thistle,
there is a time for everything under the sun.
Take your time.
Don't worry about being in control all the time.
Life isn't always about control.
Life is about living,
not forcing circumstances that might not be best for us.

Lesson #7

Where is God in all of this?
He's here.
He's there.
He's everywhere.
He's now.
He's then.
He's what will be.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
John 1:1

  1. Love it all, but especially the "presents from sons" part. Since my eldest got married my presents have improved remarkably ;)
