Good Friday

Hi

I have not been on Tumlbr lately. I need to reconnect. I have decided to move across the country to be with my sister. I am not sure how much time she has left on this earth and I want to be with her.

I have been cleaning out drawers, closets, boxes, etc… I need your prayers. I will drive across US in rental truck ( with my brother in law). I will be looking for job as soon as I get there. PLEASE hold me close in prayer tonight, as I need it. This is hard to do.

I will keep you all posted and maybe take some pics along the way. I have you all in my prayers tonight.

God Bless!

As Holy Week begins, Bach’s opening to the St John Passion is the perfect curtain raiser for the sacred drama of our salvation which is enacted this week.

The German text says:

"Lord, our Master, whose glory fills the whole earth, show us by your Passion that you, the true eternal Son of God, triumph even in the deepest humiliation"!

I like to people watch at the bus stop. I especially get a pick out of the men watching the various types of women walk past. There are two very distinctive “looks” on their faces depending on the woman and her dress.

If you are pretty and dressed modestly, the men look as if they are looking at…

Men may shed some light on this.

Women Watching Men Watch Women

I like to people watch at the bus stop. I especially get a pick out of the men watching the various types of women walk past. There are two very distinctive “looks” on their faces depending on the woman and her dress.

If you are pretty and dressed modestly, the men look as if they are looking at a beautiful painting.

If you are pretty and dressed immodestly they look as if they are looking at a sports car.

Yesterday I locked eyes with two men who were watching me go by and they whispered to each other and pointed to me. Not sure what THAT means!

It is here, my daughters, that love is to be found - not hidden away in corners but in the midst of occasions of sin. And believe me, although we may more often fail and commit small lapses, our gain will be incomparably the greater.

- Saint Teresa of Avila

When I go to church I want to feel like I am in God’s house not in God’s outhouse.
