Update! Moving to Alabama!

Dear Friends,

Update on Catholic Spiritual Direction!

You have probably wondered why the posts have slowed down to a crawl the last week or so. This is because I have been extremely busy moving my family from Colorado to Alabama over the past few weeks! Please pray for us as we get settled in to new jobs and a new parish family. I will try to get the posts ramped up again this weekend.

Seek Him – Find Him – Follow Him

–The spiritual life also has transitions: moving to ever greater virtue and trust in the Lord, moving from trusting and relying on ourselves to trusting and relying on God.

    It’s times like these I guess you wish all you needed to take with you was
    one tunic and a pair of sandles huh? Take it easy… and blessings in the new home.

    Yes, we noted the changes and were wondering what was wrong. You are assured of my Prayers – daily – as you – and your loved ones settle down. As you know, this Website is invaluable to some of us. You will never begin to imagine just how much it helps our slippely Spiritual Journey. Have no doubt God blesses you every day for your Apostolate.

    I just found your website yesterday and as I read through some of the material, I was touched in a very deep and moving way.  I pray that you and your family may find a welcomed change in Alabama and that you are, once again, able to continue this ministry.  May God’s blessings be upon you.

    God bless you for your hard work with this website. Without technology we wouldn’t have this instrument to help each other become closer to God whether in Colorado or Alabama or another beautiful place of God’s.

  • WarmSouthernBreeze

    Welcome home! You’ll LOVE Alabama! Sure, every place has quirkiness & oddities, some more than others. But on the whole, Alabama has good people, is a clean state with numerous natural resources and cultural opportunities out the wazoo! And we tell good stories, and have great music, too!

    • We already like it a lot… thanks for the warm welcome!
