Cheesy Idea Reaps Unforeseen Rewards

Stole a cheesy idea from Facebook at the end of January, tweaked it for use for my husband. It was still a cheesy idea, but I loved the rewards I unexpectedly reaped from this past 14 day experience!

Pride & the Impact on Marriages

"When couples break down, the family unit withers and dies. Living within a vocation, we must remain vigilant. As couples, we must strive to remember the end goal of our state of living - to become saints in heaven." More thoughts on the vocation of marriage, how pride seeps in, trying to destroy the vocation, and a prayer to keep in mind for difficult times.

Remembering My Primary Vocation

"...We must go out and spread the Gospel and the light of Christ with the world. We can't just hide the light under a bushel, and fool ourselves into thinking that suffices for our Christian obligation ... The more I thought about the message, one question kept nagging at me - with the emphasis on "doing unto others," so strong, how many of us are taking a moment to recognize what we are doing to those closest to us?" The thoughts nagging at me from this past weekend's homily lead me to reflect on my primary vocation as wife, and how I need to be the light of Christ not just to those outside my home, but also extend that light to those closest to me - particularly in my vocation as wife.

"It is so tempting to begin viewing marriage being about my children, rather than my children being about my marriage. But, I should be asking myself how my motherhood enhances my vocation as a wife." Peeling back the onion layers of the vocation of marriage, during the month of February.
