Only God can," were the words that ended a long, ranting journal entry - I guess that is where I channeled the anger. Those are true words. In our weakness is often when God's power is shown.

You show me what I need to do, but you ...http://crooked-lines.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-break-in-clouds.html

Unlinked Thoughts on Catholicism THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - October 6, 2013 ... The 'of God' religious name, as in St. John of God, etc. What went into choosing this religious name? It's equivalent to having Jesus as your confirmation saint. Kind of reminds me of that passage from St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians 1:12, where he rebukes people who say "I belong to Paul, Cephas, Apollos, and Christ."

This antiphon is very unclear. Zedekiah seems an awfully capricious ...http://shadowsofaugustine.blogspot.com/2013/08/notes-on-20-ot-cycle-c.html
