What I wore Sunday - My first!!

 
 
I decided to join the party!! I am linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday.  I was excited about this and last night I pulled apart my closet and my drawers to figure out what to wear.  I wanted to be slightly creative and wear something I do not wear all the time, because I usually wear the same thing most Sunday.  Do not worry, I did not make too much of a mess . . . 3/4 of our closet is actually taken up by my husband!
 
So here it is . . .

 


First, I am not sure what I am doing with my hands.  I think I am saying, "Please just hurry up and take the photos because we may be late for mass."  Ignore the books strewn on our floor . . . the boys seem to forget we have a book basket to put them in.

For the outfit:
The dress- The Limited (I have had this dress for 15 years!)
The jacket- Came from TJ MAXX
The scarf- AC MOORE (with a 50% off coupon)
I have boots on, but you totally cannot see them.  And that is a good thing, because I cannot remember where I got them.

And here I am with my cutest 4 yr old!!  He is sporting some of the sharpest hand me downs we have! Seriously, we have not had to spend much money on clothes for the boys AT ALL, thanks to some amazing families in our town.

Have a great week everyone!

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 …

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. …

On Waiting

This past weekend we went to a book party for a priest friend who had his second book Living the Beatitudes:A Journey to Life in Christ published last fall.  The party was hosted by another Catholic author.  And, after the cake was cut and people were sitting quietly, the host of the party began to speak.  He began to talk about how great this book is and how insightful so much of it is.  Then he began to share quotes from it.  And I felt as if he chose two of them for me:

"Waiting is the training ground of trust."

"Beauty is the crescendo of waiting"
Now, although we have this book and my husband has read it, I have not (sorry, Fr. B).  But that night, I sat with the book while my hubby and I sat down to attempt to watch a movie and I scoured the book for the above quotes.  Too shy to ask the host for the pages for these quotes, I skimmed page by page until I found them.  And after I found the first quote, I was confronted with line after line about waiting.  I read…
