I Love Reading (and Reviewing) Books!

I apologize for being AWOL from the blogs again. It has been a great blessing to read and review various delightfully wonderful books, and I continue to read and review - especially am in reading mode recently. It is also garden season here in central Wisconsin, so my time is divvied up between prayer, reading, and gardening. And, of course, time in the kitchen!

Each of you remain in my daily prayers. I mean that sincerely. You are in my visits to the Blessed Sacrament for Holy Hours, remembered at Mass each week on Sunday, and very often during the week for Daily Mass, and in the time spent praying the Rosary. Also, I offer up my suffering for you in union with the suffering of Jesus on the Cross. So much do I look forward to meeting each one of you in Heaven someday!

Those of you who are regular readers of my blogs know that summertime is difficult for me health-wise, so I will be spending Summer 2015 reading and praying, gardening and baking (yes! baking even when the weather is hot!)... and interceding for each of you. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Also, the CatholicChristianPrayers blog will hopefully be up and running by Independence Day. 

Those of you who love to read, may the Lord bless you with just the exact right books this summer to not only be enjoyed, but also to further your Christian spiritual development as the Holy Spirit of Jesus has ordained! God is so very, very, very good to provide us with so many wonderful authors. If any of you do book reviews, may I suggest looking up the offerings for Franciscan Media... they look absolutely fantastic. Ave Maria is also terrific.

That's all for now! Dad is grilling up some chicken on the big Weber charcoal grill, and we have potato salad and creamy cole slaw, and Dad just notified me that there are Klondike bars in the freezer! Woot! We had our first air conditioner-worthy days of 2015 this weekend, and it's time to celebrate!

Much love to you in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph - and also St. Catherine of Alexandria, the patron Saint of (1) librarians, and (2) those suffering from migraines.

Blessings galore on your summer! I especially wish many Holy Spirit-ually enlightened books to enjoy and read for the summer, swinging in the shade on your hammock, while gentle breezes caress you and the gastronomically delicious cooking/grilling smells waft through your yard! And the perfume of apple blossoms in late Spring! Too many delights to count!!!
