no bible, no breakfast! no bible, no bed!
it’s the monday giggles…
With all the heart-wrenching travesty swirling around in the world – it hardly seems fitting to pull out a giggle.
But our lives can still find sweetness, our hearts can always soften, and our hope still can be found.
I do pray this little sharing brings a tiny giggle to your Soul.
And in it, may you claim the calm sense of knowing WHERE our peace can be found–
even if for only a little while….
If you were a member of my parish it would be ingrained in your psyche “No bible, no breakfast! No bible, no bed!” Our parish priest, Father Larry Richards, reminds his flock of followers of this importance perpetually! (first giggle.)

Your smile, plays like a movie in my mind.
Feels like, you’ve always been here in my life.
Your voice is like a song, I can’t forget you.
And I never want to let you go –
I just want to let you know.
You make me laugh a little louder.
You make me dream a little bigger.
My life is so much sweeter
‘Cause you make me –

We hold so many mem’ries in our hearts.
So close – even if we are far apart.
Standing, on the edge of new beginnings.
I can’t wait to see just what you’ll do
and every time I think of you.
