Monday Musing

Will I ever get caught up? At the moment it does not seem that way, but I remain hopeful! In any case, I have not mused for Monday, please forgive me, as this will be short.

The other day, on my personal blog, I wrote about being kind for Lent. So far, I’m not sure that I’ve been very kind, but I’m trying.

How has your Lent been so far? It is less than a week. As I said, I’m trying, but I can’t’ say that I have been as attentive as I would like to be.

I know that I pray for you and I am grateful, because I believe that you pray for me. Whatever happens this Lent, I know I am carried by the prayers of many and the grace of God!

(Speaking of behind, I have so many photos from Father Jerry, I have to get them sorted, edited, organized and sorted!

  1. Well, I’m glad I gave up chocolate because I’ve been good about that, but have been indulging in almost everything else!

    We had a wonderful mass on Sunday at the 11 am from Fr. Walsh. I’m sure all who were there would agree, as he even got a small round of applause at the end!! I had a lump in my throat the whole time, choking back tears as he focused on our young people, asking them to peel the layers of themselves down to find out what brings them joy. He is a powerful speaker, speaking from the heart with his deep rich voice. He asked us to try to be silent so we can hear God’s call. His focus was to listen to God because if we are here doing what really brings us joy, our lives will be fulfilled on all levels. It was outstanding!
