Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.’ -The Chronicles of Narnia
Working on my personal column today.
This will be the first thing I submit that’s made of all my own thoughts and ideas. It’s a little intimidating, but it’s also really exciting. Working on it all day long. Sometimes I have so much to say that cutting back words is terribly difficult. Eh… somehow it will be done. Lord, let the right words come through. May all the glory be for you.
I love my Church, and I’m a Catholic who was raised by intellectuals, who were...– Stephen Colbert

Less than 5 days until I’m at the beach for a week! I can’t wait for my toes to hit that sand.
Win for the week!
I’ve been able to get to daily Mass in the middle of the day without anyone saying two words about me being gone from the office. Yesssssss! I think it helps that it’s during a typical lunch hour, but still… enough of a win to get me pretty stoked. Daily Mass is something that I desperately need right now, and I would probably put up a fight if anyone gave me any gripe about...
If you’ve never heard of it before, I think you should definitely check out the Catholic Heart Workcamp. Here’s a link to help you out a little: http://heartworkcamp.com/index.html Especially if you’re a teenager, check it out. I covered one of the camps this organization is putting on in my home town as an assignment for my internship, and I just have to say that I was blown...

jatphotography: We are the heirs of Christ. At first glance it would seem that we are heirs without an inheritance. Yet the Bible makes it clear that God has been pleased to give His kingdom to His beloved Son. Jesus had an inheritance from His Father and that inheritance He has passed on to us. He promised that…

Today is a good day for journalism.
(in my little journalism corner of the world, anyway.) I have been making good progress on one of my stories. I get to go an assignment tonight, all by myself, and hear some testimonies from some really cool teenagers. How exciting. (I needed this.)
gonerunning asked: what's your job?
You never know.
Yesterday at work was a really bad day. Today has been pretty solid. This job really has its ups and its downs… you just never know what you’re gonna get. (Box of chocolates, Forrest Gump style.) If anything, this is teaching me more about determination, motivation, discipline, and how to trust the Lord in many more ways than I already was (cause –trust me– I slack from time to...

excerpt from seasidewindows:
reason enough to live today. reason enough to rejoice, to be glad, to be free, and to love! it’s all one big dance, you see. and if i get lost in it all, that’s very alright with me.
is really cool. And sometimes it just hits the spot. Sometimes no words are necessary. Just sounds and feelings.

What are the Top 10 Most Read Books in the World? →
scribnerbooks: A few of them may surprise you…
The father of someone who is extremely near and dear to my heart passed away last night. It’s going to be a very difficult weekend, as Sunday is Father’s Day… and it will probably remain very difficult for some time thereafter. Prayers work miracles, though, and I’ve seen it happen. So if you would like to help us move any of this spiritual mountain, please know that you...

and taking her right hand, she pulled back the sky as a scroll and peared beyond. far beyond. and it was infinite. and it was. and it is. and it is to come.
I have three stories to write for the paper by Friday. Not everyone has been able to call me back for their interviews so far, though. Therefore, this could be a tad bit difficult. Lord, please help me grind something out in enough time. I need inspiration from somewhere… especially for my young adult column. That whole thing is just really intimidating, and I have this fear that I...
Gate of Heaven
allaboutmary: She is the Gate of Heaven. She loosens the chains of sinners, guides the blind in the way of virtue, removes every kind of evil from us, and asks in our name for every grace necessary for us to reach the port of eternal life. - From The Month of Mary (1890)

“don’t be satisfied with what you’ve seen. don’t be satisfied with what you’ve felt. dream dreams of glory, for it’s only the beginning.”
How are you? How have you been? I never really noticed until yesterday how different those two questions are. The simple re-phrasing of words makes all the difference, really. I was driving to work in the morning, and I happened to catch one little part of a morning talk show on a Christian radio station. The man who was sharing at the time mentioned these two questions. Basically, he decided...
