reflecting on everyday grace

I believe in miracles

This Thanksgiving week has been a week of miracles.  On Monday, I was blessed to be able to celebrate 32 years on this earth, and I did so with students, colleagues, friends, and family throughout the day and into the evening.  What a gift.

The real gift came with the news that the treatments my sweet papa has been undergoing since July for his bladder cancer have worked…they have worked!  He had a biopsy done in mid-November after the detection of some abnormal cells during an earlier check-up, but after a thorough investigation of his bladder, prostate, and surrounding ‘hood, the results came back BENIGN, I repeat BENIGN.  When asked about how this could happen – about the presence of abnormal cells just a few weeks back – Papa’s doctor could not offer an explanation.

We believe this is nothing short of a miracle from our gracious God.


Our little Trio is so very thankful to our loving, faithful God and his battalion of prayer warriors, and we rejoice in the miracle of a new day.

Every day is Thanksgiving.  Every new day is a miracle.


“Prayer is sitting in the silence until it silences us, choosing gratitude until we are grateful, praising God until we ourselves are a constant act of praise.”
-Fr. Richard Rohr
