After four or more days of cold, hard rain, occasional hail, and last night's fitful sleep in a too-cold room, Colorado Springs enjoyed a gorgeous spring day. Trees that had hardly begun to show signs of green seemed to have leafed out today. I have to admit, it is a drop-dead gorgeous place to call home (even if it's a "sometimes" home). As I was enjoying lunch out in the sunshine, I was reminded of a story told to me by Joan Carey, a parishioner at Christ King Catholic Church in Wauwatosa, WI. She has a website where you can listen to short parable podcasts taken from her own life experience. They're delightful, and might bring some sun to your day - whatever the weather's giving you. Here's what she says about them.
We know that most people don’t have time to attend a Bible study. Many find it challenging just to carve out a few minutes each day for prayer or to read the Bible on their own. So, for all of you “on the go,” we’ve packaged the truth of God’s Word for you to take with you as you go about your day.

The podcasts are short, modern-day parables that leave you pondering deeper truths of the faith.
By the way, her venture in podcast story-telling was encouraged through her discernment of her gifts after attending a Called & Gifted workshop. Way to go, Joan!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
