RED, WHITE, AND BLUE ROSARY for our TROOPS

Posted on by Donna Sue

Let’s pray our Rosary for our Beloved country and those in The service of our country When I see the Red, White, & Blue Colors of our flag, I think Of those same colors in another way. The three colors remind me of the Blessed Trinity. The red reminds me of the red blood Our […]

HE IS MY PRIEST, ONE OF MY SONS

Posted on by Donna Sue

“No,” Mom said, “don’t you ever talk about a Catholic Priest.” You lift them high and pray for them, an Ave at the least!” “Oh fine.” I muttered to myself and headed for the door. Our parish priest was such a grump, so harsh, and quite the bore! Now here it was a Saturday when […]

OUR SOULS THEY ARE NOT DEAD

Posted on by Donna Sue

  In silence late one evening, I found myself alone, Enjoying for the moment some peacefulness at home. A steamy cup of coffee with a shot of Irish cream, Had lulled me into comfort when I drifted off to dream. The mistiness around me draped my shoulders like a shawl, While voices so familiar seemed […]

THE SHEPHERD GIRL’S CHRISTMAS

Posted on by Donna Sue

Bethlehem town was sound asleep, As were the little lambs. So she spread her tiny blanket out To rest upon the sand. But just as she began to nod She opened up her eyes, To see the stars in heaven dance With Angels in the sky!  As she stared in fascination; Her heart began to […]
