Work In Progress



I've started a new, or adjunct, or offshoot, I'm not sure what to call it....blog, to post my Work in Progress, which is absurdly also what the new place is called. You can get there by clicking on the highlighted link or in the right hand column you'll find another handy link. I've posted a new chapter in The Glass Mystery. It's actually pretty steamy in a culinary sorta way, although perhaps not as steamy as the kissing scene I started reading in The Very Virile Viking (I kid you not, I almost bought it just for the title!) as I stood in CVS waiting for my brother to pick up the latest fishing magazine.

A View From Table One will continue to be my main blog, and at the moment it's evolved into a weekly format of whatever grain of sand has crawled into my oyster shell. I'll post the articles on Mondays. (of course, now that I've announced this decision, I'll suddenly be inspired to write articles three times a week instead of once and post them who knows where...that's just the perverse way my mind approaches decisions). However, this is what inspired me to put my novel in progress in a home of its own, hence the whole point of this belabored announcement.

BTW, the other day I found a very neat website that offered very pretty Blogger background designs for the Minima layout......and now of course, I've forgotten where it was... I think it was called 'creative...' something-or-other.....if you know of anywhere I can find fun background designs for Blogger please leave a link in the comments section, I'd like to try out something a little more colorful at the new place.

UPDATE: just as I finished writing that last request I went googling one last time....and found the site. So, just above my usual Blog List (see below, right) I've created a new blog list: Make it Pretty, which has a few places I've found with pretty blog designs. Feel free to send me links to others you like and I'll add them. Now I just have to pick out and install the new decor next door.

I think that is a great idea to have a blog dedicated to your work in progress. I'll definitely be by.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Suz!

My hat's off to you...I can't even keep up with one blog, never mind two. I'll keep checking on you here and there and see how this dual blogging thing goes. Happy New Year.

It feels both exciting and productive to recreate, doesn't it? ;)

Women are Highly Esteemed in the Eyes of This Man

I enter the sanctuary of Our Lady of Peace Church and my eyes adjust to the dimmed lights as the only illumination comes from candles on the altar and their glowing reflection in the monstrance holding the Blessed Sacrament.
My friend and I had come to join the Mary and Martha’s quarterly meeting which started with an hour of Adoration.
I took my seat in one of the pews, knelt, and surreptitiously glanced around the sanctuary. In the gloaming, I could see thirty other women kneeling like sentinels in silent prayer. 
Over the course of the hour, we would remain in contemplative silence.
As I slipped in and out of my prayers and wandering thoughts, I considered how pleased God must be when he sees us gathered in the simple and divine act of Adoration.
But in fact, women are highly esteemed in God’s sight not matter where we are. 
We only look at the life of Jesus Christ to understand how dearly he cherishes every woman.
In the Gospel of Saint John, a group of men bring a woman caught i…

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

If you are tired of the guilt trip you usually feel at church, here’s a different perspective

I am counting the days until I fly to Fort Lauderdale to see Mom for Christmas. Yes, I speak with her every day, sometimes twice a day. But as you know, phone calls just aren’t the same as being with someone you love. I look forward to seeing Mom’s smile, to holding her hand, to going for a drive along the beach with her. Spending time in the presence of someone we love enriches our relationship with them.
I believe the love I feel for Mom, is a sliver of what God feels for each of us. I believe God longs to share that love with us. Which is why we are called to spend time in God’s presence daily. We experience God’s presence when we meet him in our prayers, in church, and hopefully in one another. If I could make one wish for each of us, it would be that at some point during the next four weeks of Advent we would experience how much Jesus loves us.



The Best Christmas

During my morning devotions, I read these two verses of Psalm 117:
Praise theLord,all you nations;
extol him, all you peop…
