Well, we got all our guests come and gone safely and happily. I was fun to see Kim yesterday for a few hours. And Roni and Callum posted some great pix on FB which I will repost. They brought this terrific weather which we are still enjoying.
So, I thought that I would write about my three mainstay blogs that I follow, would that be religiously? Well, I get to them pretty much hell or high water on a regular basis. Two are daily which is good, sort of tidbits to chew on through the day. And one comes out once a week so it is more elaborate.
Let’s go with the once a weeker which happens to come out every Monday. This is “Terry Hershey Sabbath Moment”. It is maybe ten paragraphs of inspirational and thoughtful commentary on how to navigate our sometimes hectic days gracefully. There is a lot about gardens and poetry. Terry also has books and e-courses available. I can also brag because Terry is a personal good friend of mine and you may see my name once in a great while in there. We inspire each other.
Daily, I receive “Daily Gospel Reflections” from Bishop Barron. There is a short Bible reading and then a commentary on that. I will have to admit that I am such a hotshot that I have never actually read the readings and just follow the commentary itself. I am familiar with the stories so I have been able to pull this off so far. Anyway, Bishop Barron has been in my life one way or another for over four years now. We studied his “Catholicism” series as part of our orientation before joining the Catholic Church. That is highly recommended for new hands and old hands.
And finally, the “Richard Rohr Mediation” from the Center For Action and Contemplation. This is a very good source for exploring the mystical side of the Catholic faith. These daily essays just blow me away each and everyday nonstop. I don’t know how he does it? Very rich stuff. Last evening I just finished one of his books, “The Divine Dance”.
Yea, those are my mainstays. Check them out if they sound like something you need. You can subscribe to each of them so that they come to you automatically. Just wanting to share a good thing.
Off to work. A beautiful day here and a little cooler than yesterday. Hope things are good where you are. Just sharing the basic love behind it all, Felipe.
