April A-Z Challenge-Reflection

End is indeed for Reflection

This challenge was certainly something unique! And I defiantly like something that is unique!

I was happy I actually finished this year. I had more or less a plan this year. I was going to keep it Short and Simple and I was defiantly going to schedule posts a head. Which both worked out has planned. Yes there was a few nights I stood up a little longer to make sure they were written, regardless it was finished


It was one March afternoon, and I was wandering the Web. Then I thought I would do my unofficially random but yet some how convent stop at the April A-Z website. When I clicked their page on Google  the first thing I saw, when there page loaded was the sigh up list! And it was new to! I said to my self," OMG I forgot about the challenge!!!" Then I made my self sign up without a plan or anything.

When I signed up I was number 30 on the list. That number turned to 28 and I have rested there ever since. I was happy to be one of the first 50. The most people see those ones ;) I was 2/3 down it last year. Then  I made my plan, and started to write the posts...

I liked this challenge because it forced me to make sure all these posts were up regardless of how busy I was. It was my goal not to write a sorry it's late post. But sadly it had to happen cause I got sick. (I'm still not 100% but I am getting there)

I think Q and X were the two hardest letters for me. Plus not repeating words. That also was hard for me. I actually learned a thing or two my self. Q and X I think are the hardest for everybody. Q is just an awkward letter I feel sorry for it and X is.... well X.

Overall this challenge was a great success! Welcome to my new 20 brand new followers! Thank You to everyone who stopped and read my posts, who commented and THANK YOU to my new 5000+ viewers!

Below is a list of all the posts if you didn't get a chance to read them or if you just want to read them again!

Have a blessed Week!

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. …

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 …

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…
