My unexpected miracle healing (part three): healing inside and out

My unexpected miracle healing (part three): healing inside and out

When I walked out of Holy Family church that Sunday after having my throat blessed (see previous post), I had no idea what to expect. Over the past four years I had come to accept that my loss of voice was permanent. That loss became a part of who I am. Yet the blessing moved […]

A room of one’s own: what if your “room” could be portable?

A room of one’s own: what if your “room” could be portable?

What happens when you get the urge to create? Do you retreat to a music studio to write a song? Do you go to your specially designated study to write? Do you paint your latest masterpiece in a light-filled studio? Do you shut the door when you enter your room? Why do secret hideaway places […]

Someone old, something new … dusting off the music in my life

Someone old, something new … dusting off the music in my life

I took a trip back in time yesterday. I had the nerve to walk into Radio Shack and ask to buy a cassette tape player. Yeah, it made me feel old (and I eventually bought it at Walmart because it was half the price) but I am so glad I bought it. Not only can […]

Five minutes around the Advent Wreath can give new (quiet) meaning to Christmas

Five minutes around the Advent Wreath can give new (quiet) meaning to Christmas

My habit every Christmas is to spend a few minutes each morning in front of the Advent wreath on our dining room table. For those of you not familiar with this Roman Catholic tradition, one sets up a simple wreath with four candles in the middle. Three are purple and one is pink. The candles […]

Music for your waiting

Music for your waiting

It’s hard to believe Christmas is only a month away.  The waiting can be filled with much shopping, parties, busyness, noise, rushing around … not bad things, but the waiting can also be filled with quiet expectation. Time alone. Silence. So one can think, ponder and imagine the scene of the coming Messiah, born as […]
