Over A Cliff

Over A Cliff

Scandal fans know that Olivia Pope’s team will follow her in any direction that she would lead.  If they object to it, they raise their concerns, but like good friends, they fall in line because they believe in her vision.  In light of Christianity, are you willing to go over a cliff?   Being a disciple of Christ, we were never meant to just “fall in line” with what’s going on in the world.  Our actions must always profess truth and speak of truth.  If we turn for one moment away from this...

Spiritual Reading: The Imitation of Christ

Spiritual Reading: The Imitation of Christ

I have a lot of Spiritual books on my reading list.  Many of them that I have read already, and some that I am itching to get through.  Each one of these books holds a treasure to change who I am, and lessons to living life to the fullest in the realist way.  While I could have started with anyone of those books, I decided to start with a book that I am currently reading: The Imitation of Christ. The Imitation of Christ has to be one of the most widely read devotional over 500 years.  Yup–I said it right, 500 years!...

The Importance of Reading Spiritual Books

The Importance of Reading Spiritual Books

The first thing I was going to do was dive right into my spiritual reading list. But it dawned on me that I have to backtrack for just a moment and discuss the importance of spiritual reading.      Did you ever have that good friend that you can always go to for advice? Or when you weren’t even in need of advice, they share their life’s story and journey with you? They tell you what they went through, how they did it, and who helped them along the way. Spiritual reading is like that. You see, when we pray, we talk...

Truth, Freedom, and Relativism

Truth, Freedom, and Relativism

In New York City we have veins of subway lines and bus routes that helps you get to where you’re going. While riding on the train or bus, you’re not thinking about the complex system, you are focused on where you have to get and if you’re running late. But given the chance to freely choose a destination with no time constraints or obligations, your mind begins to see the complete picture of the subway system. Life is very much like this. While you’re in the grind, you are really not as aware of your...

Remembering Those Before Us

Remembering Those Before Us

I have so many favorite prayers that I like to pray, or thanks to iTunes, sing to.  One of my favorite ones is the Litany of Saints?  What is so great about the Litany of Saints.  Well, it’s calling on all the Saints to pray for us. Have you met someone who is going through some problems in life (or maybe you are that person).  What is the first thing that we usually say to them, “I’ll pray for you.”  Well, this is like that.   One of my favorite prayers is the Litany of the Saints....

Making Sacrifices as One

Things in my home is starting to get back to normal.  I have been quiet for the past two weeks because my household has been sick.  It seems like one after another, we’re coming down with something (a cold) and we’re out of commission.  Homeschool had to pause for a week, but I thank God everyday that we’re a head and not behind. I am also very thankful that the children are feeling well enough to continue Monday. My household coming down with a cold that required multiple doctor visits (and ended with one...

Year End Reflection 2014

First of all, I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!  Not only do I hope you got everything you needed, but I hope you were able to celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season with your family and loved ones. As 2014 comes in to a close, I have plenty of time to think and reflect about where I am headed, what my plans were for this year, and how well did I meet them. In the beginning of this year, I had some very bold plans, not just for online, but for offline as well.  I hoped to have more exposure, and do far more...

Born In Poverty

Born In Poverty

Next week, we celebrate Christmas.  We are retold the story of how the Holy family had to go back to Bethlehem because of a census.  We learn that the city was full, and Mary was in labor.  We relive the birth of Christ in a stable and how even in not the best conditions (to our high standards), our King and Savior was born into this world. Will we be filled with joy because of Christmas?  Are we going to celebrate the Birth of Christ with praise and thanksgiving, or are we going to feel disappointed...

Season of Peace

Season of Peace

Have you noticed how often we use the word peace?  We are at peace.  They keep the peace.  I’m looking for peace and quiet. We throw around the word so much these days, that we forget what it means to be at peace.  In the worldly sense, peace means tranquility.  But can we be in tranquility all the time?  Can we wake up in peace, not have any disturbances, and end our day in peace?  Nope.  Honestly, it just doesn’t happen. The toil of daily life calls us.  Frustrates us.  ...

Would The Real Saint Nicholas Please Stand Up

I look back on some of my older posts, and I laugh to myself about myself about how I was going to defend or refute the infamous Santa Clause. I laugh because I always seek truth. I didn’t want to lie to my children in the name of a holiday tradition, nor did I want to take the fun out of the season by saying he’s not real. A few years ago, I came to the beautiful conclusion on how to handle it, and this year we are just taking it further.   The Catholic Bishop   Not many people are aware of this but Saint Nicholas...
