Best Medicine

In my previous post, I was saying that I felt like I had been hit by a tidal wave...which isn't good!

But you know what the Best Medicine is?! A good healthy dose of Jesus!

After having days of feeling mentally and emotionally drained and awful this week, I prayed for God to lift this suffering off of me. I asked him to please remove this heavy yolk. I needed a break. I can only take so much.

Very soon afterwards, I went to Mass....and felt so much better just to be in the presence of the Lord and to receive the Eucharist. Just being there made me feel more peaceful.

Then I went on my walk at the beach, out in the fresh "just after the rain" air! I breathed it in deep. What a gift!

I saw some friends and got nice hugs, which are always nice and welcome! Remember when we couldn't hug each other?!

I saw some beautiful flowers and marveled at the colors and shapes that God created perfectly. Have you ever really looked at the colors of flowers?! I mean...GORGEOUS!! Mesmerizing!

I saw two families of ducks with around 10 ducklings each. I watched them for awhile. Just enjoying watching nature in action. How the mother was trying to "herd" and guide her babies. How one of the baby ducks escaped (little rebel!) and she just let it happen! I imagined her thinking, "Little stinker...not listening to me...he'll learn a lesson"! I watched as the Daddy Duck saw the baby alone and guided him back to the group. This is far better than watching TV!!

I'm so grateful that God loves me so much, that He answers my prayers and makes me feel better. I'm so grateful that He helped me to see, touch, hear, smell and feel all He's created and experience the joy and wonder of those things. I am reminded of what a gift my life is...even when things are overwhelming and I'm not feeling very well in mind, body and spirit. There is nothing in the world that will heal me more than Christ.

About Me


I’m Lori Balderas, I created this podcast for those who are converting, reverting or simply want a FRESH perspective of the Catholic faith to help them to open their hearts and minds to become closer to the love and goodness of Christ.

I converted to Catholicism at the age of 49.  It was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made! I don’t claim to be an expert or Theologian, but what I DO know is that my heart is bursting with love for the Lord and I want others to feel the same way!  

I feel impassioned and drawn to Evangelize people by sharing my experiences and transformation that have gotten me where I am today.

I will be sharing my personal conversion story and speaking with others about theirs.
