See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Couple things...

Today is my day of recollection, so I have to be nice. I'll be praying for all of you.
.
I wasn't complaining about Father yesterday - I really like him - I just don't want to get so involved as to sign in or apply for permission to make comments.
.
I'm painting you know - it is about the secret and the apparitions at Fatima. I do not like what I'm painting - I do not like the work. But I have been pressed to paint it ever since the 3rd part was revealed at the beatification of Jacinta and Francisco. I've tried to avoid it but now I'm doing it and want to do a good job. It looks as if a 5 year old painted it - the composition is all over the place.
.
Anyway - Fatima - I'm still convinced the revelations at Fatima are deeply significant for our time. In every vision and miracle - every aspect of each secret - there is a great deal of information - perhaps details as to what has unfolded and continues to unfold in our day. Each time I feel I finished a section, I understand it differently and revise what I have tried to document. I rarely ask for prayers, but please say a prayer for me as I paint The Secret. I happened upon an interesting site concerning Fatima - I think the author is quite good, not a Grunerite or conspiracy theorist - her understanding is very much in accord with my own intuition. You may want to read her here: Keeping it Catholic - the Blog. Also check out Fr. Hardon, Why the Miracle of the Sun is Important.
.
Also - I'm on the new computer and doh! I do not know how to access my old email so I have to create a new account - which I will post the address to as soon as I figure it out.
.
In the meantime - I know I missed your updates Paula; Jeron - I missed you too; Juan - I'm not ignoring you; Anthony - I got your email and was waiting to write a good reply... - and anyone else - I am not ignoring you. Although I'm starting out with a clean slate here.
.
Also - today is my brother Tim's birthday - please say a prayer for him. Thanks.
