Oh so cute!! Totally awesome.
Oh so cute!! Totally awesome.
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.

The other day my mom said “I hope there is no dust in heaven.” To that I said, isn’t heaven supposed to be perfect? How can there be dust in heaven if heaven is perfect? Plus we don’t know how heaven is physically. Aren’t we outside of our bodies in heaven? Aren’t we in heaven in spirit only? I don’t know. What are your thoughts on heaven?
Right now due to circumstances I am living with my parents apart from my husband. I don’t want to be but maybe that is best for me and for us for now. Kevin and I are rebuilding. I think it is good that I am able to spend time with my parents, especially my mom since she is having trouble with her health. This also gives me time to focus on me and I think I need that for now. It is so hard being apart from Kevin. Somehow this is part of God’s plan and I am trusting Him but this is so hard.
I have tried to keep up on what happened at the recent Synod on the Family but I need to read up on it a bit. I am waiting for the English version of the final synod report to be released.
A friend suggested that I read James in the Bible so I have started reading James. In chapter 1 James talks about having perseverance when going through trials. Even in trials we are called to trust in God and have faith. We need to lean on God in these tough times.
I have started my own jewelry shop on Etsy. I am excited and will be posting more items to sell soon.
Have a blessed Sunday!

“Once, I had night duty, and I was suffering greatly in spirit because of the painting of the image, and I no longer knew which way to turn because they were constantly trying to convince me that the whole thing was an illusion. On the other hand, one priest said that perhaps God wanted to be worshiped through this image and therefore I ought to try to get it painted. Meanwhile, my soul was becoming extremely exhausted. When I entered the little chapel, I brought my head close to the tabernacle, knocked and said, ‘Jesus look at the great difficulties I am having because of the painting of this image.’ And I heard a voice from the tabernacle, My daughter, your sufferings will not last much longer.
Diary Number 152
My Thoughts: Lord Jesus I give you my great difficulties today to do with as you wish. Mend them. Don’t mend them. Show me a different path. Don’t show me a different way. Heal me. Don’t heal me. Please help me to see how everything I am going through has a purpose and a place in your plan for me. I ask you to guide me along the correct path. Amen.

1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God. Selah
4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia[a]—
‘This one was born there,’ they say.
5 And of Zion it shall be said,
‘This one and that one were born in it’;
for the Most High himself will establish it.
6 The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,
‘This one was born there.’ Selah
7 Singers and dancers alike say,
‘All my springs are in you.’
1 O Lord, God of my salvation,
when, at night, I cry out in your presence,
2 let my prayer come before you;
incline your ear to my cry.
3 For my soul is full of troubles,
and my life draws near to Sheol.
4 I am counted among those who go down to the Pit;
I am like those who have no help,
5 like those forsaken among the dead,
like the slain that lie in the grave,
like those whom you remember no more,
for they are cut off from your hand.
6 You have put me in the depths of the Pit,
in the regions dark and deep.
7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah
8 You have caused my companions to shun me;
you have made me a thing of horror to them.
I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
9 my eye grows dim through sorrow.
Every day I call on you, O Lord;
I spread out my hands to you.
10 Do you work wonders for the dead?
Do the shades rise up to praise you? Selah
11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave,
or your faithfulness in Abaddon?
12 Are your wonders known in the darkness,
or your saving help in the land of forgetfulness?
13 But I, O Lord, cry out to you;
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14 O Lord, why do you cast me off?
Why do you hide your face from me?
15 Wretched and close to death from my youth up,
I suffer your terrors; I am desperate.[a]
16 Your wrath has swept over me;
your dread assaults destroy me.
17 They surround me like a flood all day long;
from all sides they close in on me.
18 You have caused friend and neighbour to shun me;
my companions are in darkness.
Yes, the Lord loves me. I question whether the He loves me. I am in pain, constantly. How can a good God allow me to be in such extreme pain? I think, there must be a purpose, but don’t know what. in my heart I know that Jesus loves me but my brain questions His love for me. I am sympathetic to those who wonder how an all good, omniscient, and omnipotent God can allow such horrible tragedies, diseases, disasters, and turmoil in this world? We need to remember that God does not intervene in persons free will decisions. In going through my pain I have become closer to Christ. Are these sufferings a wake up call? God wants us to be closer to Him but these tragedies are odd ways for that to occur. Yet we do not understand the ways of the Lord. The Lord calls us to trust Him. This is hard when going through tough times. We are called to have faith that God has a plan for each of us and that He will guide and take us to where we need to be.
...there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.
