The Gratitude Project: Weeks 31 & 32

"Therefore, last week went by with nary a word written. And, this week, I decided my soul whimpers a little when I don't make time to write. However, I can't find more than 24 hours a day in my life, and try as hard as I can, I don't have the energy when everyone else is asleep around me at the end of the day, to break out my computer to write. So, I have combined last week's Gratitude moment with this week's, praying that this doesn't become a monthly project, rather than weekly!" What are you most grateful for this week?

Humble Pie in My Sunday Best

"And, I realized how grateful I was for this alternate view of a subset of parishioners in my life who have another side of the story to tell.

My Sunday Best post discusses an epiphany I had today, on this Feast of Epiphany. And, serves as a gentle reminder to all of us with children.
