Life's Complexity vs. God's Simplicity

Life is hard. Yep...I said it. I know. It is what it is...and it's getting more and more complex out there...isn't it?!

I could easily wake up everyday with a defeatist mentality. I could wake up bitter and angry. I could wake up shaking my fist at the world. I could wake up blaming everyone for everything...but I don't.

I wake up saying, "Good Morning Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Thank you for bringing me safely to this day. Thank you for your many gifts and blessings. Please help me today to do the best I can and keep me safe."

My husband and I have always had a hard time...the whole time we've been together these past 10 years. It's always something. Family problems, temper problems, money problems. It's gone on and on...sometimes to the point of thinking we should give up and throw in the towel.

We have many people...even family... who are rooting us on to break up. How sad. I feel bad for people who have such angry, resentful, selfish and mean spirited hearts. I used to be like that. It's not good. I'm so grateful I changed my ways and allowed God to soften my heart.

This past weekend, we had a moment of peace, calm and rest. What a gift! I felt God was surrounding us with just what we needed. A break from the weight of the world at large... and our own world against us. It was the simplicity that meant the most...

A picnic lunch...

A glass of wine...

A good conversation...

A great view of the ocean...and ocean air in our lungs...

A glorious belly laugh...or two...or ten...

An uncomfortably wonderful nap on the hard ground, but with the softness of spirit...

A beautiful snuggle and good nights sleep...filled with all the love in our hearts, minds, bodies and souls for each other.

Thank you God for watching over us and helping us navigate through life's complexities...and always remembering that YOU are with us always and everything is going to be alright.

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.
