Summer's Loose Ends and Lessons Learned BLESSED BY GOD - August 17, 2016 Summer is winding down, it seems. While the clean slate of June, July, and August once lay out before me like an artist's canvas the emails for Fall commitments are now pouring in. I won't lie, when I see some of the subject lines my stomach tightens a bit. I feel like summer is being stolen away and the other necessary aspects of life are replacing it. This year we didn't take a vacation (or last year or the year before). I tried to make it fun for the kids here, day ...http://ekblad9.blogspot.com/2016/08/summers-loose-ends-and-lessons-learned.html

Roots. Revival. And Why the Holy Spirit Has Me in Texas. STORIES - June 13, 2016 As I closed my eyes in prayer, I saw this striking image of an invisible hand uprooting a great tree. Dirt and dust clung to the roots as the invisible hand pulled it from the ground.

The tree hung mid-air, the wind blew between it's roots. Alone. Then, with one, decisive action, the invisible ...http://torifharris.blogspot.com/2016/06/roots-revival-and-why-holy-spirit-has.html

WITH-NESS (Part II) YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - May 14, 2016 ... They were no longer scattered around Palestine individually. They were together in the upper room when they heard, saw and felt decent of the Holy Spirit. Ours is a communal faith that extracts a cost and the cost is our individuality. We can practice solitary prayer. However, the highest form of prayer – the Mass – is meant for community. We cannot act without solidarity – solidarity with our community, solidarity with the poor, and ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/05/with-ness.html
