Have a Voice.... Five minute Fridays

Today, I'm linking up, and participating in Five Minute Friday. I can only write for five minutes flat 

So here's the rules:

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.


I'm very sure that we can all agree that an upset child, has the loudest voice. With the shouting, and crying, and wanting of attention it just becomes the loudest voice. When the child needs something he will scream for it, or do an action, in saying it wants food, or something else.

It's very easy to get annoyed of children screaming, and it gets harder to do anything, while they are screaming. You can't think right, you can't do what you are doing right. But, the best you can do is hold the child, and make it feel protected when it is screaming.

Think of God. God Certainly does HAVE A VOICE. God is always, talking to us. Now it is really only if we listen to him, then we hear his voice. We have to ignore the world and take a moment to hear his voice. God, will become that child. When we don't listen  to him, he will SCREAM for us, and still yet, we don't listen, he will do actions. He will do certain things in our lives, send certain people, just to get out attention or he will get those certain people to do what God wanted in the beginning.

With God, we never get annoyed, we only tune him out. When we do listen to the voice of God, we are doing the right thing, he guides us down the right path of his ultimate plan, and from that you will take care of us, and make us feel protected.

We are all called to GO out into the world and proclaim the Good News. And if we listen to God we can do just that. We can HAVE A VOICE.



  1. Great post! As a mother of three girls (and grandmother to one) I can certainly relate to the analogy of a screaming child. :-)

  2. Excellent post! Why is it so easy to tune God out and so hard to tune out some people?!
    Thank you for sharing!

Forgive... Not Seven times but Seventy Seven times

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22 
It's very hard to forgive. Forgiveness is essential to our life here on earth. Jesus gave us the perfect example of forgiveness while he was on earth. Jesus loved us so much that he bore all our sins on the cross that goes before us. Every wrong we have done; every pain has become  A LOT LIGHTER because Jesus bore it before us.
Jesus is asked by his own, disciples, how many times should they forgive. Because they know that they have to forgive, and they know they everyone does wrong, but how much is enough? We need to draw a line right? No.
Jesus tells us that we shouldn't just forgive seven times. He told us to forgive 77 times. Or 77 X 7 times. Which is a more perfect number. Jesus told us that we must forgive has many times that someone does wrong. …

Fishers of Men

I have had the pleasure recently to start teaching again the First Penance and Eucharist at my Parish. It is always  a great time for me to know that I am laying the seeds of God in their heart and knowing that I am preparing them for a once-in-life-time event.  I love seeing the kids who are earnest to learn and who want to be there.

     In todays' Gospel, we are presented with an overview of Jesus life. Jesus does three distinctive things, that Matthew wraps up very quickly. He teaches, proclaims, and heals. These three unfold for us what we can expect from Jesus during his life time.  However, before he begins his own life and mission one thing had to happen- the Death of John the Baptist. John, we know, was the last of the Prophets and his main mission was to make sure people were finally ready for the King  to come. Jesus, therefore, couldn't start until the paths were made straight.

     Jesus mission on earth is the great light that has appeared in the darkness. In…

Feed My Sheep

During this Easter season we are given the opportunity to listen and reflect on the word of God from the Gospel of John. For the third and final time this weekend, we will hear a post-resurrection appearance of Christ to his apostles. It is through these appearances that Christ proves his resurrection, dispels the darkness of doubt in his apostle’s mind, and commissions them to make known the love and joy of these events to the world.

The Gospel this weekend tells us that after the death and resurrection of Christ, the disciples have returned to fishing, as they once did before they followed Christ. These skilled fishermen do not catch anything all night, until a man comes on the shore of the beach and tells them to cast their net on the right side of the boat, and they catch an abundance of fish, that the net should have broke, but it did not. After they caught these fish, the apostles realized that it was the Lord, who has now called them a second time from their job of fishing to …
