Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Seeing God in the Children

Children are a gift from God in so many ways.
They remind us of our calling in life, to live in the truth of God,
to serve, to nurture, to love, and to forgive.

If we could only have the faith of a child, without ulterior motives, without fear.

To just want to be loved and to love with all of our hearts........

The be a child and to want to please others just for the sake of making others happy.

To find joy in bringing joy to someone else.

To run through life in complete happiness, only to fall asleep when tired from living in the joy of life, only to awaken refreshed, and then to run again, finding the good in everything and everyone around us.....

With the exception of my teenage son (Sean), the three beautiful children pictured above belong to my cousin Nancy who lives with her family in North Dakota. (We miss you)
