For several months, I had been thinking about how I could use my gifts in a positive way, to reach out to people who might need what I could share. From time to time, I would send out an email with a Gospel reflection, or some helpful information about an issue or an event, but I really didn't want to junk up people's in-boxes again and again.
Some people said I should blog... but I always thought, "Not me. I don't really have the time. What would I say, anyway??"
Well... I think I am called to do this, after all. I see my gifts of sharing my faith, praying, inspiring and encouraging others, researching and ordering facts and ideas, creating, and writing, as the perfect ingredients for this blog. I have named it after the song You are Mine, by David Haas. God says, "Do not be afraid, I am with you... I have called you each by name... Come and follow me... I will bring you home... I love you and you are mine."
So, I have created this site to be both uplifting and informative... including links & information about Faith, American History, Current Events, Politics and Simple Living.
I welcome readers of all faiths. Since I am Catholic, in my section on Faith, I will include links & information about the Catholic Faith, in particular. I hope this will be helpful to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. My Catholic Faith is a big part of who I am. The Faith portion of my site will also include prayers, Bible Readings of the Day, spiritual reflections, and recommended reading.
American History will include information about the U.S. Constitution, our Founding Fathers, and recommended reading.
Current Events will link to the news of the day.
Politics will link to my favorite sites for political news and commentary, and will contain links & information about Constitutionally conservative issues & candidates.
And finally, Simple Living will link to information you may need to create a warm and restful home and a self-reliant lifestyle... things to help you and your family to live simply.
Thank you for visiting you are mine ... Feel free to look around... I invite you back anytime.
