Good Atheist, Bad Atheist. Good Christian, Bad Christian…

2012-12-16_2037

... Yes. There exists people that fall into each category and if you're looking to validate your preconceived ideas about one group finding that validation is easy to do. We see what we seek. If we are looking for examples to cast Christians in a negative light or are looking to vilify atheists finding conclusive evidence supporting either is quite easy to do.It's easy for me to immerse myself in Catholic blogs and media and from inside my bubble think the whole world is Catholic and … [Read more...]

Advent Wreath DIY – Trial By Fire …

Orthodox-Candle-Lighting1

... I've long since given up the self destructive habit of comparing myself to crafty moms, those MacGyver's of Motherhood. I've burned enough meals, killed enough plants and set enough household items on fire to know my limitations. In the evolutionary nature in which God made us humans, I've learned to adapt.It is through these adaptations that I've learned quite a few perfectly acceptable short cuts, because there's really nothing wrong with "good enough", especially when it comes to … [Read more...]

Holiday Mail For Heroes…

... One my favorite things about the Christmas season is the cards. I love sending as much as I love receiving them, especially since I never get real mail anymore. Just bills and adverts. As you sit down at the table with your family filling out cards why not include an extra card for the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. The Red Cross sends Christmas cards to military troops every year through this program.Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million … [Read more...]

Thank you, God, for men who smell like cigars…

And nothing, I mean nothing, gets me surlier than those daily reminders of my spinsterhood from Catholic Match that arrive in my email's inbox on an almost daily basis. Never mind that you can't unsubscribe and deleting your account doesn't work either and I refuse to change my email address... they own you forever once you join.Needless to say my foul mood was already brewing when I walked … [Read more...]

... When I was a little girl my Abuela had a statue of the Divino Niño in her bedroom. She hand-made all His clothes, little gowns and velvet capes with cold fringe. I'm not sure if you're familiar with cage styled statues. They were basically just a doll head or torso set on a frame and essentially "naked". You dressed them yourself. It was a big deal to get them all gussied up in their finest robes and cloaks on feast days.I had forgotten all about that strange little statue my … [Read more...]
