Little bits of life

Wipe the twinkle from your realm
All shoutout the beauty wrought

Wonder Why Catholics?

Why honor St. Joseph?

Same reason Catholics honor all the Saints, whoever they are in Heaven; because they are alive in Heaven, we glorify God when we recognize this FACT!

Today we remember St. Joseph

Word of the Day Challenge

Check Out the Word of the Day — Today

It is ILLUSTRIOUS!

Illustrious might in a sense, mean famous
Someone glorious and quite grand.
Look in the mirror to see how you stand.
In the eyes of the world, perhaps an eyesore.
In the eyes of God, you are much more.

Don’t envy the life of another; count your blessings instead.

There is this legend a man; who complained to God that his cross was too heavy. As the story goes, the man is now seeing numerous stylized crosses to choose. Some very large, others so tiny, some crude and heavy, other slick and light, splintered, skewed or straight; on and on, he looked to see what cross was perfect for him, for he knew we all had to carry our cross, such is life. He looked here and there for his cross, and found one! Picking up his cross, while looking above to God he said, yes!

God now looking down smiled and said, “well done,” that is the exact one I gave you my child.

So you see, we all have a cross even the illustrious people in the world have one, you only see their splashy outward appearance, not the within.

There was this exalted person, illustrious and known to God, while simple to the world, his name was Padre Pio who died in 1968. Padre Pio’s advice and moto were, and it is a good one, “Pray and don’t worry.”

The Power of the Volcano but Power of Prayer is greater

FOWC = Fandango

The prompt today is “POWER” and what a word!  An energy that makes me wonder why all these volcanic eruptions are occurring.  Below is today’s report; concerning to me especially since those Russians Scientists are calling for an earthquake in the U.S.A. not just an ordinary earthquake but a great one!  I mentioned it in on my blog of a few days ago dated March 13 here.

Yet! I wonder some are saying that Russia has weapons that could cause such an event.  Anyway, we won’t have to wait too long, to see!

The POWER OF PRAYER is greater than any other force, use that power it’s free to all!
