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

  1. I FINALLY have Rocky Mountain bluebirds at my birdfeeder!! (No relation to the Rocky Mountain oyster..)

    And the swallows are showing our fighter pilots at the air base close by the proper way to negotiate a high-G force turn and bank..

    Now just waiting for Mr Bluejay and his girlfriend to come by and clean out all of the sunflower seeds..

  2. Please pray for young lady Vanessa who will be entering the Discalced Carmelite monastery (nuns) in Salt Lake City this July..

    She credits her vocation to the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

  3. Re you having nothing to say, that hasn't been said already....There's a scene in the film, City of Angels(I think that's the title). Nicholas Cage says to Meg Ryan "What does a pear taste like?" She says "You don't know what a pear tastes like?" He replies "I don't know what a pear tastes like, to you"

    Your perspective Terry, is precious. That's why God gave you, your own perspective. He could have given you mine, but He didn't. Uniqueness. That's what you write with.

    Now type already!!

    What?

    What's this? More heresy?

    Nothing, you say? And you show us something - calling it nothing. Nihilism, I say, nihilism!

    I will make sure The Onion Dome knows about this!

  6. "...I got something for you to blog about: The end of the world is this Saturday, May 21, 2011. Look it up..."

    I spoke with a young lady this week end that was really frightened about this.

    She is Catholic.

    Novus Ordo Catholic.

    I spoke with her and related Holy Mother Church's pronouncement on these things, and reassured her of God's goodness and mercy.

    It is sad to see that a ten year old Traditional Catholic school kid knows more Catholicism than this twenty five year old woman.

    I guess liturgical dancing, mariachi Masses, and clown Masses don't leave much time to catechize the Faithful.

  8. Take another nap, Mr. Terry.

    It works around here (we try, try to be faithful!).

    The end of the world?

    Bring it on...sorry...but I'm so freakin' sick and tired of the b.s. that goes on, I'd welcome Jesus returning again...

    Just my random thoughts...

  11. Novus Ordo art, end of the world; why not a post about something relevant like spoiled fruit?

    How does Novus Ordo and the end of the world relate to spoiled fruit?

    Anybody?

    Anybody?

    Bueller?

  12. The Post had an article on those May 21st folks when they came to town. They were asked,hey,if the world is going to end, you don't need your money,so why don't you give it all to that homeless guy over there? Or, since you won't be needing your house and your stuff, can I have it? Nothing doing. Guess they really don't believe it themselves.
    At least the Space Shuttle Endeavor and the Space Station will have a perfect view.
    Are you on a "R" kick? Rothko, Richter.... Here's another lovely Richter:

  13. Nope nope nope--the world cannot officially end before July 31..that is my final day to complete a critical project at work..

    The world cannot end before that date or I will be late completing my project and thus receive a poor grade on my annual performance review...

    No spoiled fruit here..but I do have a few bananas that are looking to be good candidates for banana bread..

  14. Sara--Am glad Spring has sprung for you.

    Padre--I am LOL. Bellarmine used to ask frequently: "Will I never die"? I am w/ you, often, Padre.

    Teryy-Re the Rothko painting. My brother is an art dealer and he used to work at Sotheby's in NY. My Father was always complaining because he like art he could understand. My brother gave my parents a painting, I think it was a print, of a simple rose. My brother, also a photographer, loves Rothko. i think it is nice to have nothing to talk about, Terry. But, I am w/ Shadowlands, we do appreciate you perspective!

  16. Maria--I may have birdies and tulips...but we're supposed to get MORE SNOW in the higher elevations in the next couple of days...and the windstorm we've had the past couple of days have knocked all of the blossoms off the trees...so very little fruit this year..

    But I went for a lunchtime walk around the block to clear my head of the stress and picked a stem of LOVELY fragrant purple lilacs to put on my desk...they smell heavenly...you just CAN'T be stressed when you smell lilacs :)
