"Therefore, while I am not writing a gratitude post for this week, I am renewing my challenge to those reading these words - beginning next week, as we prepare for the new Liturgical Year, join me every. week in finding gratitude for the little moments in your life." Today, I'm adding my voice to the #WorthRevisit link-up hosted by Allison at Reconciled to You and Elizabeth at theologyisaverb. Will you join me in adding a "New Liturgical Year resolution" this year?
"So, to the parent out there, wondering why we put in the manual labor, the grief, the heartache, and the struggle to get children out of the door and off to Mass on a weekly basis, take heart." While not planning on linking up this week, the unexpected affirmation I received after Mass made me realize - another parent may need the same reminder!
While Peter is asked one question in today's Gospel reading, I began asking myself an altogether separate question. Which has led to more introspection on my part. Join me as I ponder a deep question today!
"The goal of this post is not to wallow in the messiness of life. Instead, it's to recognize that messiness, and give credit for the beautiful moments..." How a difficult Mass on Sunday has been gnawing at me, making me realize there is beauty in the messiness of life - and, we should all strive to accept both the beauty, and the mess.
The kids were the kind of quiet that makes me wonder if this is the calm before the storm? But, either way, it was a successful, quiet Mass, and for that I am thankful. Also, wise words from our chaplain, which is bound to make you think as you go about your week ahead!
