Vital Link Between the Laborer and the Needy

Posted by Eileen Miller on October 26, 2016 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (1)

"The bread of charity is life itself for the needy; he who withholds it is a man of blood.  He slays his neighbor who deprives him of his living; he sheds blood who deines the laborer his wages." (Sirach 34: 22,23)


You see here how God speaks of the needy and the laborer in one breadth.  Our economy must support them both without favoring one over the other.  There is a delicate balance to maintain our economic system that must be adhered to.  Our econom...

The liberals have revealed their true colors with Obuma as their new leader (pun not intended).  Remember...they call themselves pro-choice.  Well, if you have a choice - that means there is more than one option to choose from...whether to have a baby or abort a baby and whether to support abortion or remain free from supporting such an evil.  By issuing the HHS mandate and attempting to collectivize the controversial issue of abortion by forcing all people to support it throug...

Patrick's Eighth Birthday

As we sit around our kitchen table eating cake and ice cream on my youngest son's eighth birthday, we talk about the day he was born.  All of my children remembered coming with daddy to see Patrick and I in the hospital that day.  My oldest son remembered how Patrick spit up on his shirt when he held him as a newborn.  He even remembered that it was his yellow Gonzaga shirt he was wearing at the time.  We all laughed.  They also remembered what a treat it was that, af...

Tribute to Dad

With Father's Day just around the corner next month, I thought I would post a book my son and I read that reminded me of my father.  It is a heartwarming story about a young girl who wants to travel to Africa to escape her mean brothers.  It's called Loula is Leaving for Africa by Anne Villeneuve.

Loula attempts to tell her mother and father that she is leaving for Africa, but they are too busy to be concerned of her desires.  Therefore, she climbs a tr...

Will the Real Evildoers Please Stand

Posted by Eileen Miller on April 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (5)

Sometimes God speaks to our hearts in the simplest moments. The other day I was blessed to be able to sit and talk with a dear friend while our children played at her house. While we talked, we had a nature channel on while we engaged in a wonderful conversation. At one point we were enthralled with a polar bear and her young cubs. They came out from under the snow and her new cubs waddled over to the mother polar bear as she enticed them with her mother's milk....

"And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me."


One:  Being the same kind or quality

Whole:  Free of defect or impairment

Humanity can not be whole (free of defect) but can be brought in th...

Managing Homeschooling with More Ease

Posted by Eileen Miller on February 25, 2014 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

I thought I would give new homeschoolers some advice from the 23 years I've been engaged in this process. The more children one is homeschooling...the more of a challenge the effort can be on our time and organization. I have five children: one in grad school, one a senior in college, one a senior at a Catholic high school, one a freshman at this Catholic high school, and one still homeschooled with me. I homeschooled my four older children up until ninth grade where they enrolled in priv...

Choice/Disagreement is not Judgement

Posted by Eileen Miller on January 31, 2014 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Christians are blessed to be able to view/measure their life against God's standards. This does not mean they are judging others who live by different standards. This just means that if an  example of something that goes against these standards is given, the observer has the knowledge to separate it out from these standards with a red flag in order to avoid the example given. Thus, this example is unsuitable for their own life as an authentic disciple. To disagree with something mean...
