Walk me through your son’s story

Dear Father in Heaven, there are a few pictures in my photo album that I would like to tear up, as I think I look awful or some photos ignite a negative reaction in me.  I confess that I have a similar reaction to your holy word as there are some stories I’d like to rip out.  They often cause me heartache in some form, whether it’s anger, guilt, deep sorrow or that they’re beyond my scope of comprehension.  I tend to read them very quickly and not take the quest for deeper understanding and knowledge.  Forgive me Lord, for my lack of patience and for not grappling with my own ignorance.

Let Us Value Lent

This past Wednesday was the first day of lent. 

Just out of curiosity I searched both Facebook and Twitter to check how many posts there were about lent.  I was a bit disheartened to see there were very few.  Although lent is a very personal journey, the practice of this sacred tradition should be more acknowledged and encouraged.  It’s so easy to be complacent, nonchalant; another year, another lent, but when we do that we rob ourselves, our families and our church communities from fully receiving God’s inheritance. read more…

Lenten Prayer 2017

Dear Father in Heaven,

It’s that time of year again.  Today is the beginning of lent.  Somehow it’s more necessary this year.  As you know I look forward to the lenten journey as it’s the time to focus on you, to seek solace, break away from the self-centredness of life, to be more conscious of your Holy Spirit and to be reminded of your greatest sacrifice.  How deeply honoured am I to have such a meaningful tradition passed down from generations which is still essential to our spiritual vitality today.

Choosing to see Holy Grace

This past week has been full of malfunctions with my power chair beginning with last Sunday.  As I was heading off to church my power chair felt bumpy and I discovered I had a flat tire.  Unfortunately this halted my travel plans in going to church however I considered the misfortune divine intervention as I was extremely tired that day.  My body was aching from going out in the rain every day.  I had no choice but to stay home and rest.  I was thankful that I was home when the flat tire occurred.  It would have been more challenging if I was out.   read more…
