Failure. One look at that word and I cringe. It is a word has the power to tear you down. It gets inside your head and causes you to think about the “what if’s” of any situation. It makes you strive for perfection, and although you know it is impossible to achieve, you strive for … More Forgiving Love
Have you ever had a moment when you thought, “Wow, I am exactly where I need to be”? An ah-ha moment, I guess? I had this experience the other day. And boy was it a moment I will remember forever.

Catholics tend to make resolutions on how they will better themselves, just as most do on January 1st, yet the resolution quickly sees it’s end a couple days after the beginning.
