About This Site
The Lord says,“Come, everyone who is thirsty – here is water! Come, you that have no money – buy grain and eat! Come! Buy wine and milk – it will cost you nothing! Why spend money on what does not satisfy? Why spend your wages and still be hungry? Listen to me and do what I say, and you will enjoy the best food of all. Listen now, my people, and come to me; come to me, and you will have life!” (Isaiah 55: 1-3a)
Long before there were emails and tweets, or even pen and ink, God’s been inviting us, the people He loves, to know Him better. This website is for those who are looking to focus on the positive nourishment God freely offers in a world that all too often bombards us with negativity. Of all the ways God reaches out to us, the Bible remains as His written invitation to a deeper relationship with Him. It’s been said that in prayer we talk to God; in meditation, we listen to Him. Reading Scripture is an awesome springboard for meditation and listening to what He has to say to our hearts.
I invite you to savor Scripture – one brief quote at a time – and spend time listening to what the Holy Spirit might want to say to your heart. On this website, a different Bible quote will appear every Wednesday and Saturday, along with my reflections on the passage. You’re invited to share your thoughts as well in the comments section.
May we all find the grace in God’s words for us today.
The author – Barbara Hosbach - has been actively involved in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults since 1997, as a sponsor, catechist, and retreat facilitator.
Although she loved writing since learning to put pencil to paper, Barbara set aside her dream of authorship for many years. During a chance conversation with a stranger, Barbara made a commitment to actively pursue writing. She joined a writers group near her home in central New Jersey where she found encouragement and constructive criticism. Her work has appeared in national publications such as St. Anthony Messenger, the Liguorian, and My Daily Visitor, as well as on the web in N.J. Family, and Today’s Catholic Woman. A member of the Catholic Writer’s Guild, Barbara recently completed her first non-fiction book – a Bible study exploring a wide range of personalities found in Scripture.
