"If you have followed my blog any length of time, you'll know I am a proud Army wife, and a proud Catholic Christian... The project I undertook, to have it released for this Lent, was not undertaken without some sacrifice on my part." Today's #WorthRevisit is a look back at The Military Way of the Cross, and how that project was one that, although challenging, makes me a more grateful blogger.
"Perhaps that can be my focus during Lent 2018 - how much I act like Jonah, and resist His gentle, and sometimes not-so-gentle, whispers and nudges on my heart. Perhaps focusing on my tendency to resist His whispers and nudges are paving my own, personal Way of the Cross. Perhaps opening my arms, and giving my "yes" to Him with less argument, will allow me to learn better from those saints who still followed His call in their lives." This week's special Gratitude Project addresses how a Lenten project for the Military Council of Catholic Women opened my eyes to my own spiritual battle. Includes links to the FREE download of "The Military Way of the Cross."
"I need to get something off my chest. This past week, I have been grieving for families I have never met." Please take a moment out of your day to read this military spouse's view of what is happening in this country this week, and please spread the word - it's a message I strongly feel needs to be shared.
My husband is not deployed, but today's Gratitude Project goes into depth into some of the feelings that accompany deployment... and, requests readers to remember those who *are* deployed. It also brings up something for which I am deeply grateful this week.
"So, enjoy your potluck dinners, your shopping sales, and your bar-b-ques this weekend..." but, make sure to remember the reason for the time off. And, be sure to face some uncomfortable, but necessary questions at the end of the article!
