Seeking Sponsors for the Run for the Little Flowers!

This little guy wants your help!
 
 
This is just a friendly plea (oh, I will have a bunch more of these soon!), the Second Annual Run for the Little Flowers will be on October 19, 2013!  Registration will open next month and I am in need of sponsors for the run.  Right now I am looking for anyone, individual or business, willing to donate an item for the giveaway (see this post from last year for the items we had) or money to help defray the cost of the shirts, postage and medals.  If you cannot help, that is fine, but consider sharing this info on Facebook, Twitter or your blog to get the word out.
 
 
Let's make this fundraiser a success!!

  2. If you're chill with me walking, I'm in for the run.

    I'll also put up a $25 Starbucks gift card if you need something to give away.

    1. Jen- Yes, of course you can walk! You can walk around the block and call it a 5K if you want to too! This is all just to raise money for Little Flower Projects.

      And, that would be great if you wanted to donate a $25 gift card!! Thank you!! I will email you soon, with details, but you would not need to get the gift card until October and you would send it directly to the winner. Thanks!

  3. I replied to one of your FB posts, but wanted to catch you here - YOU KNOW I WILL HELP YOU!!! I am planning to advertise like I did last year, also I'm going to try and host a parish-wide run with a cookout afterwards, which will be fun! Put me down for a giveaway...just a few ideas, but really you can ask for anything that you think would be nice - Running Warehouse gift card, Run Pretty Far t-shirt, NUUN variety pack, a hydration belt ($40 price point?). Let me know!!

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…
