A Journey Of Spirit

Posted 12-12-2012 at 01:28 AM by caninemom3

There was a Christmas special which premiered many years ago called Mr. Krueger's Christmas. I think it was largely overlooked and for me it is one of the most moving, Christmassy specials there ever has been. In it, Jimmy Stewart plays a man who is very much alone and very much in need of love and friendship. He is a widowed janitor of an apartment building and daydreams most of the time to escape loneliness. One of his daydreams is about the first Christmas. He daydreams that he is right there when it happened !

This is particularly meaningful for me as I have done the same thing many times. I think of it as a journey of my spirit.

As I daydream, I start to become drowsy and fall asleep and as I do so I can see in my mind the hilly country around me. There are lots of sheep and shepherds in the hills. It is a chilly night though not as chilly as some of our Christmas carols make it. Everything is peaceful as I walk along. Nobody can see me since this journey...

The Journey Of A Lifetime

Posted 11-18-2012 at 09:54 PM by caninemom3

She was just an ordinary teenager who lived in a small town. Her parents and family were poor and made a modest living off the land but always provided for her and several relatives as was custom. She had always been a very devout Jewish girl being sure to follow to the letter the laws and traditions of her people. As she sat very still listening to the quiet Summer breeze she was both terrified and excited. A visitor had come to see her just a few hours ago. A visitor who was unlike any she had ever seen or spoken with ever in her life. The visitor was almost human looking but had such a presence of the ethereal about it. It could not be described as man or woman but rather as without gender with a kindly face yet with a commanding presence. The words the visitor spoke were most troubling for the young girl whose name was Miriam.

It had told her she was "blessed among all women" and that she had "found favor with God." How could she of all people have...

My Mothers

Posted 05-06-2011 at 08:57 PM by caninemom3

It is Friday night and though I am absolutely exhausted from this past work week I am sitting pondering my mothers. Yes, plural. There have been a few who have been like mothers to me.

As odd as this may sound, my late first husband was quite maternal in the way he behaved at times, in affection always doting on me, always telling me he was proud of me, always helping me to believe in ME, always available to talk, share ideas with, shop, discuss books, but especially wanting the best for me. I am so blessed to have had him in my life for the 20 years we were married. I will always miss him.

My sister, as I call her, "Nani" after the movie Lilo and Stitch, has been very much like a mother to me. In the movie the little girl, Lilo, had a big sister whose name is Nani. Nani in the movie was the only person left from Lilo's family as their parents were dead (exactly as it is in real life for me). There is one scene where Lilo is being a bit of a brat...

As We Approach Christmas

Posted 11-25-2010 at 06:47 PM by caninemom3
Tags god, mary

Tonight is Thanksgiving. I cannot even begin to count all the blessings I have in my life. I think of all the people here in our country and other countries who have nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. And here I am. I never want for food or warmth or any of the creature comforts that every human being and yes even "animals" should have a right to. It is not because of anything I did or do that I have all these blessings. I believe they are all a gift from God, our Father.

Now that we are approaching Christmas I think about Mary and Joseph and the way they found their way into history.

What was it like for them to become the caretakers on Earth of the Messiah ?? Did they see him as the Messiah ?? or just their baby ?? I wonder....

I used to think of them as I would see them in paintings or depicted in the movies of my youth, always holy and always devout. Never doubting or getting angry. In short I did not see them as human, which...
