Deuteronomy, Chapter 1, Verse 28-29
28 What shall we meet with up there? Our men have made our hearts melt by saying, ‘The people are bigger and taller than we, and their cities are large and fortified to the sky; besides, we saw the Anakim (Giant) there.’” 29 But I said to you, “Have no dread or fear of them.
What are the giants in your life? Debauchery, theft, murder, adultery, greed malice, deceit, extravagance, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, recklessness all comes from within. These giants are not out there; there in here; in the heart. The hearts fears make giants. Love is the cure. Love endures Love hopes. Love does small tasks. Love is like a water drop that outlasts the mountain; wearing it away. Love stands defiant before the giants in your life. In and through love we come to discover the giants in our life were shadows all along. Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s light shining somewhere nearby. (Ruth Renkle)
Live each day as if it were your last. Death brings an end to all, and man’s life suddenly passes away like a fleeting shadow.
Lord, for those in mortal sin, death is the gateway to hell, but for those in sanctifying grace, it is the pathway to Heaven. Let my greatest desire in life be to live in such a way that I can die fearlessly at any moment. Let me fear sin more than death or any other earthly harm. Amen.
Today is my deceased mother’s birthday, please offer prayers for her. Today is also the date that the National Congress of Mothers later known as the PTO was established in 1897. Motherhood is tough these days don’t forget to pray for mothers of today.

Today say the Seven Sorrows of Mary Rosary.
Today is my deceased mother’s “Rosella “birthday-please say prayers for her intention. Mardi Gras in New Orleans was one of her most favorite things to do.
