Lisle's First Holy Communion

A LOT of water has flowed under the metaphorical bridge since my last post, and some of it was very dark indeed.  And some of it was the very essence of lightness.  But that is for another day.  Today I return to my blog to celebrate our sweet Carlisle Fitsum, or Lisle as he is generally known.  He has been through so much in his young life, and continues to amaze us with his charm and resiliency.  He is now eight years old and finishing up second grade.  This weekend, he took a big step forward in the Catholic faith...he celebrated his First Holy Communion.

You are part of a search and rescue for lost Catholics.

Regular updates to the countdown to the Day of the Lord by the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven at :

What to expect in the final days :

I was guided to think, for a while, using the "1335 = 2300" methodology, explained here :

We are less than 15 days away from prophetic history : the completion of the 2300 day cleansing period of Daniel 8:14. When Jesus said to me, "Give in now, John, until it comes time to fulfill all justice.", He was referencing that point in time between "this age" and "the age to come". That point in time is between December 29, 2018 A.D. and December 30, 2018 A.D. There is no changing this by human means.
