+JMJ+ It’s here! The week leading up to Christmas! Whew! We’ve had some cold weather here and we’re expecting a few days of lows around 16-18 degrees for Christmas Eve and Christmas night. But it’s not so brutal right now and pretty comfy in the den where I’m writing this. Let’s get a fresh cup of tea, then we can take a quick look at a book in my favorite devotional series, In Conversation with God, Daily Meditations, Volume One, Advent and Christmastide, and the reading for yesterday, the Fourth Sunday of Advent.Continue reading “A Time of Hope”
+JMJ+ Greetings, y’all! I have some things to share with you!
- First, something from the reading for today, the Third Monday in Advent, from In Conversation with God, Vol 1, by Fr. Francis Fernandez Carvajal. (The longer I use this series of reflections, the more I treasure it.)
- Second, a video about Advent.
- Third, a video about the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe since her feast day is today.
- Fourth, something about Our Lady of Guadalupe and the tilma.

I know I said I’d tell you about what I’ve been up to but I don’t know who’d really wanna hear it. It’s mostly been fixing things that broke, uninstalling and re-installing software, discovering that the computer I bought for my little home studio works surprisingly well with most of my software, but apparently hates my MIDI keyboard that works perfectly well with other operating systems.Continue reading “Advent just began and I’m behind already”
Someone asked me the other day what books I have on my nightstand. Seems like a good topic for a quick post, doesn’t require much thought, just have to remember what’s there. Hmmm…well, I’ve only got about half an hour before I have to leave the coffee shop, so I’ll have to give an abbreviated list. ;) Continue reading “Books on the nightstand”
