Coming Back

For those who follow me more often, you may have noticed I dissapeared for a while.  The journey that I have traveled since I have come back to my parents house from living in religious formation has been one that is taking over my life.  While there have been some ups, I have lived in mostly downs.  The thing I have realized is that I do have a couple great people to help me stay on track.

All this being said, I am trying to jump back into the blogging world.  I am not sure what will be posted, though I do have some ideas.  Part of the plan may include restarting a new blog to just start over, though I am not so sure yet.  Just be on the look out!  There is another blog that I am a part of that I may try to get running again.  Please stick around and join me once again on this journey of faith.  Tomorrow I start up once more!

Alive? Perhaps…

Hello to those out there still waiting for me to write once more.  Lent is now over and we celebrate with great gusto Christ rising from the dead!  While my reflections are vast and great and very many, I have not much to put out here at this moment.  Many blessings have come my way, as well as some very difficult moments.  All of which have taught me and are still teaching me many things.  I will still be around the blogging world with thoughts and inspirations.  This post is all about letting you all know I am still around!  May God’s peace reign in your hearts!

The Lord’s Prayer

This was a little thing that was read to us some time back in our Prayer and Morality class.  It is pretty interesting.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father Who Art In Heaven.
Yes?
Don’t interrupt me. I’m praying.
But — you called ME!
Called you?
No, I didn’t call you.
I’m praying.
Our Father who art in Heaven.
There — you did it again!
Did what?
Called ME.
You said, “Our Father who art in Heaven”
Well, here I am. What’s on your mind?
But I didn’t mean anything by it.
I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day.
I always say the Lord’s Prayer.
It makes me feel good,
Kind of like fulfilling a duty.
Well, all right. Go on.
Okay, Hallowed be thy name . .
Hold it right there. What do you mean by that?
By what?
By “Hallowed be thy name”?
It means, it means .. . Good grief,
I don’t know what it means.
How in the world should I know?
It’s just a part of the prayer.
By the way, what does it mean?
It means honored, holy, wonderful.
Hey, that makes sense.
I never thought about what ‘hallowed’ meant before.
Thanks.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Do you really mean that?
Sure, why not?

What are you doing about it?
Doing? Why, nothing, I guess.
I just think it would be kind of neat if you got control,
Of everything down here like you have up there.
We’re kinda in a mess down here you know.
Yes, I know;
But, have I got control of you?
Well, I go to church.
That isn’t what I asked you.
What about your bad temper?
You’ve really got a problem there, you know.
And then there’s the way you spend your money —
All on yourself.
And what about the kind of books you read ?
Now hold on just a minute!
Stop picking on me!
I’m just as good as some of the rest of those people at church!
Excuse ME.
I thought you were praying for my will to be done.
If that is to happen, it will have to start with the ones
Who are praying for it. Like you — for example ..
Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups.
Now that you mention it,
I could probably name some others.
So could I.
I haven’t thought about it very much until now,
But I really would like to cut out some of those things.
I would like to, you know, be really free.
Good.
Now we’re getting somewhere.We’ll work together — You and ME.
I’m proud of You.
Look, Lord, if you don’t mind,
I need to finish up here.
This is taking a lot longer than it usually does.
Give us this day, our daily bread.
You need to cut out the bread. You’re overweight as it is.
Hey, wait a minute! What is this?
Here I was doing my religious duty,
And all of a sudden you break in
And remind me of all my hang-ups.

Praying is a dangerous thing. You just might get what you ask for.
Remember, You called ME — and here I am.
It’s too late to stop now. Keep praying. ( . pause . . )
Well, go on.
I’m scared to.
Scared? Of what?
I know what you’ll say.
Try ME.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
What about Ann?
See? I knew it!
I knew you would bring her up!
Why, Lord, she’s told lies about me, spread stories.
She never paid back the money she owes me.
I’ve sworn to get even with her!
But — your prayer —
What about your prayer?
I didn’t — mean it.
Well, at least you’re honest.
But, it’s quite a load carrying around all that bitterness
And resentment isn’t it?
Yes, but I’ll feel better as soon as I get even with her.
Boy, have I got some plans for her.
She’ll wish she had never been born.
No, you won’t feel any better.
You’ll feel worse.
Revenge isn’t sweet.
You know how unhappy you are —
Well, I can change that.
You can? How?
Forgive Ann.
Then, I’ll forgive you;
And the hate and the sin,
will be Ann’s problem — not yours.
You will have settled the problem
as far as you are concerned.
Oh, you know, you’re right.
You always are.
And more than I want revenge,
I want to be right with You . . (sigh).

All right all right . .
I forgive her.
There now!
Wonderful!
How do you feel?
Hmmmm. Well, not bad.
Not bad at all!
In fact, I feel pretty great!
You know, I don’t think I’ll go to bed uptight tonight.
I haven’t been getting much rest, you know.
Yeah, I know.
But, you’re not through with your prayer are you? Go on.
Oh, all right.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Good! Good! I’ll do that.
Just don’t put yourself in a place
where you can be tempted.
What do you mean by that?
You know what I mean.
Yeah. I know.
Okay.
Go ahead. Finish your prayer.
For Yours is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory forever.
Amen.
Do you know what would bring me glory —
What would really make me happy?
No, but I’d like to know.
I want to please you now.
I’ve really made a mess of things.
I want to truly follow you.
I can see now how great that would be.
So, tell me . . .
How do I make you happy?
YOU just did.

“Liebster Blog” Award

I was nominated for the “Liebster Blog” Award by fromtheheartofj (http://throughhimwithhiminhim.wordpress.com/).  There are many thanks and prayers I have for her for recognizing my blog.  It was a very unexpected thing but it put a huge smile on my face.  You should check hers out as well. 

The “Liebster Blog” Award is given to blogs that have less than 200 followers and deserve more recognition and encouragement in their blogging  There are some guidelines while giving or receiving this award.  Liebster means dearest, sweetest, or favorite in German.  There seems to be no sort of discovery as to where this all started, but there are some guidelines I have found that one is to follow in nominating and receiving a nomination.

1.  Thank the blogger who gave you the award.

2.  Pick 5 small blogs that are worth the honor.

3.  Spread the word about the “Liebster Blog” Award.

 Personally, I don’t have a lot of time to read blogs of others, but here are the ones that I nominate.

St. Therese, is that you?

For those who know the story behind this statement, you will understand why this struck me.

Two roses found their way from in the ocean to me on the shore.

Makes me think a little.  I may know why they did that.

Good Better Best

“Good better best never let it rest, until the good becomes better and the better becomes best. WHY? Because the human mind and the human heart are made for the best and will never truly be at rest until the good becomes better and the better becomes best. THEREFORE! Hitch your wagon to a star and aim high because if you aim low, you just might end up below the below.” Fr. Fabian

The above was a quote by a teacher in the philosophy department at my college.  He is in his mid 80’s now.  This is something that generations of people taught by him have heard him say.  I am pretty sure that he went immediately after his schooling to start teaching there, if I remember correctly.  You should enjoy this one.  It really gives you something to think about.
