Update on the Run for the Little Flowers 5K

Baby Sheng

To anyone who reads my blog, my blog is being taken over for the next 18 days by Run for the Little Flower Virtual 5k posts.  You all will get updates on the run and get to meet our great sponsors.

For now, I need to just make you all aware of a few things:

1. We are at 136 runners/walkers/donors and I am so pleased!!  Please continue to spread the word. We are so close to meeting the goal of 1 walker/runner for everyone 1 MILLION Orphans (which means we will have raised enough money to cover a Nanny's salary for 6 months)

2. Due to the volume of registrants, I did order extra shirts.  So, I have plenty for those who still want to register.  Once we get down to the last few in each size, I will post here and on the run's facebook page to let you all know.

3. There are only about 17 medals left, so register ASAP to ensure you get one if you want one. 

4.  The shirts will, hopefully, be in my hands by the end of the week and the medals sometime next week.  If you registered via paypal, watch for shipping confirmation and tracking!

5. Expect an email with race "bib" around October 13th.

That is it! Please contact me with any other questions!

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 

As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48

There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  

About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .

We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …
