"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

I missed Tuesday...

OMIGOSH!  I was off line for 24 hours.


Some people just post stuff because they have to keep stats up - hits and ads - that was a song from  Chorus Line, right?  Which explains why they just link to other posts or post banal messages ... thank you for responding to my Donate button.

So anyway.

I was coughing so hard at one point, I passed out - I fell back on my bed, so I did not get hurt, but I saw a white light and heard things.  Then when I came to, I wasn't sure where I was or what day it was.  This is a very bad flu.

I wasn't able to post.  Then I had to clean and do laundry. 

Oh.  Then I had to get my painting area all neaterized so I can start painting again, now that the house is clean and the yard work is just about finished.

I kept working however - pretending I was in a concentration camp - because those people did not have the luxury of calling in sick.

I want to make reparation for all my sins.  Like calling in sick.

I don't think I can however.

St Therese said "I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of His merciful love."

I'm going to keep doing that.


  1. Getting better is more important than being online. Cultivate your garden so that you can take refuge in it. I enjoy ours since it gives me the chance to get lost among the fruit trees and the songs of the many joyful birds who sing God's praises.

    Be well, Terry.

  2. You're still sick? Sorry to hear it. I hope you get well soon, so you can get that "donate" button set up in time for Christmas!

  3. I'm sorry to hear that Terry. Um, if I were passing out I think I might see a doctor. I'm sure you've thought of that, unless you have an extremely high fever. Better heath!

  4. Get well Terry, Thanksgiving is near and you are to host a Thanksgiving party in your garden. LOL!
