This is a bit late but I am wishing everyone a Happy Easter. I hope all had a blessed and splendid Easter Sunday celebration with family and friends. Easter was bittersweet for me. Over the weekend I had a great time with relatives but I am still separated from Kevin. I am more hopeful than before that Kevin and I will be together soon.
Catholics celebrate the Easter Season all the way through Pentecost. Be joyful! Have faith and hope! The Lord is risen!! He is alive!!!!
How do each of us keep Jesus Christ alive in our hearts?
There are many ways you can show others that Jesus is alive in our hearts. One way I do this is when my mother needs help due to her aging and health issues I assist her in whatever she needs.

As we celebrate Holy Thursday there is much symbolization which shows that Jesus wants to purify each one of us. From Jesus’ washing of the disciples feet to the institution of Holy Communion being instituted Jesus wants to cleanse us from the inside out. He is calling us to purify ourselves, doing this one day at a time. Purify our thoughts and words. Jesus is calling each of us to be like Him. Let us pray to Jesus for His guidance and assistance to change our lives, to better ourselves in a Christlike way. God Bless, Teresa.

Here at TCOTS, we’re celebrating Frank Sinatra’s 100th Birthday by counting down what I think are his 100 best performances on Vinyl and CD. All of the songs on the List have been released on either one or both mediums. Interspersed with the countdown will be Honorable Mentions that didn’t make the List and a countdown of what I think our his best albums.
Francis Albert will be your pilot and Bobby Bell your navigator.
So sit back easy in your easy chair, fasten your seatbelts, and let’s take off in the blue…
97 — YOUNG AT HEART
Music & Lyrics: Carolyn Leigh, Johnny Richards
Recorded: 09 December 1953
Released as a Single; included in the compilation album This Is Sinatra!
This is my favorite version of this song because Frank had Sammy Cahn write special lyrics to honor psychiatry and re-entitled it Jung At Heart…

I have been away from blogging for far too long. I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years celebrations were merry, terrific, and filled with friends and family. So much has happened with politics, religion, and in the world since the beginning of November. The latest is the attacks in Paris, a new congress having been sworn in, and the Pope is in the Philippines.
Yes I believe my life is in limbo. My husband and I are still separated due to financial circumstances. I am still waiting for him to kick it in gear and find a job or do something which can support the both of us. We were able to spend the Thanksgiving holiday together. That was very good. Unfortunately we spent Christmas apart. It was pretty good under the circumstances. At least I was able to spend it with some of my family. But it also wasn’t okay cause Kevin wasn’t with me. I miss him so much. I just so pray and hope he takes care of what he needs to do so we can be together soon.
Unfortunately I was denied on my disability appeal. That was very disappointing and frustrating for me. Now my lawyer is helping me appeal that decision. I am reading a very informative book on various therapies and medicines to help fibromyalgia. Unfortunately some of the medicines are a bit pricey.
Plus we are keeping our options open for moving. What place may be better for my fibro and better employment for my hubby.
I spend time in prayer often. Praying that our situation improves. Praying for others in need. Praying for the world. Praying for peace. Praying for our military.

Jaha Dukureh founded a nonprofit organization, Safe Hands for Girls, to raise awareness of the harm FGM does, so that future generations will not be put through the barbaric practice.
The horrific practice of FGM is strongly associated with Islam, though some Muslims deny any connection, but also occurs among non-Muslims living in Muslim areas or on the fringes of them. It predates Islam, though. It seems to have begun in Ancient Rome as a sign of slavery, then spread to Egypt. It now occurs in every part of the world, often in secret.
While the Western conservative and centrist voices are united against FGM, the left debates
