It’s fall!

And there are so many wonderful things to do to enjoy the splendor of the Season!

Maybe you’ve done some apple picking or bought some apple cider and cider donuts from your favorite orchard. 

We visited our local Farmer’s Market who supplied us with some of the area’s best MacIntosh Apples.

Then the fun continued back at home

“The effects of kindness are not always seen immediately.  Sometimes it takes years until your kindness will pay off, and is returned to you.  And sometimes you never see the fruits of your labors, but they are there, deep inside of the soul of the one you touched.”

Matt Kelly

“and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,”

Hebrews 10:24


May you always remember the

Rules for Doing Good:

Do all the good you can,

In all the ways you can,

To all the people you can,

In every place you can,

At all the times you can,

As long as ever you can!

“Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity,  and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us.”  Titus 2:7-8

hugs n’ blessings to all the fruit farmers (out there)…may your harvest be bountiful, despite any inclement weather you may have along the way!

It’s another Wednesday for Saint Maria Faustina KoWalska (what else,)

with a brief reflection on the Divine Mercy of God!

Originally aired in 1965 by Paul Harvey (1918-2009.)


Somedays we look around us to see and hear what is happening in our communities, our country, our world and we can’t help but say…

“These are very sad times we are living in.”

And we wonder to ourselves,

“Are these the days predicted in Revelation?”

Jesus spoke to St. Faustina and asked her to write this:

“Write this:  before I come as the Just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy.  Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: 

All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth.  Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time.  This will take place shortly before the last day.”

Paragraph/entry (83) in the Diary of Saint Faustina Maria Kowalska called “Divine Mercy In My Soul”

The Church prepares us for the end times.

Hatred never has the last word.

We already know the end of the story.

God will always win.


hugs n’ blessings to all those who refuse to eat from the apple & keep their eyes fixed on Christ.

Jesus, I trust in you.
