Grace



(1) Starting over. Again.

I had gone through a period of blah. Then it was a period of busy. Vacations
are a tricky thing. Loved loved loved the time spent with family and friends.
Then there was the tons of errands to attend to as well. Arrived back home
tired. Then sick. The antibiotics were a great help. Glad to have that behind
me.

(2) Grace for 2014

"Grace is favor, the free and undeserved help that God gives us..." 
- Catechism of the Catholic Church 1996

I look forward to celebrating the rest of the year with more of His GRACE:
- that I may have a greater appreciation of His blessings
- that I may have more patience and strength for the challenges ahead
- that He may use me to bless others

(3) Inspiration for the journey

The God of all grace, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
- 1 Peter 5:10

God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency 
in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 
- 2 Corinthians 9:8

(4) Of hopes, dreams and aspirations

I've been doing a lot of thinking and reviewing and praying lately.
It's about time I came up with My Life List 2.0.
Or something to that effect.

(5) More inspiration

Can't stop reading Notes on Lent. Yep, I've read it a few times. I feel blessed
with the new insights gained each time I read it. I'm sure there are a few
nuggets there still waiting to be discovered. 

"Have you ever met someone like that? Someone truly united, truly remaining 
in God? It's an amazing thing to behold. She walks in grace. She blesses 
with her smile, with her gestures, with her words. She lives the life for which 
she is created because she is the genuine image of God He intended her to be." 
- Elizabeth Foss

(6) Lent with Little Ones

We've started praying the Stations of the Cross as a family. I didn't realize
that it would be a bit of a challenge explaining it all to a 4 year old. I just
remind myself, this race is not a sprint but a marathon. We'll get there.

It's Pope Francis' first year. Here's something beautiful to look back on:

  1. Howdy back to you here! Grace. What a beautiful word and virtue. I see you linked to Elizabeth Foss' blog. Did you sign up for Restore by chance? I did; looking forward to the journey. Also, for what it's worth, my 5.5 year old is responding well to the Stations this year. Big change from last year. Keep on, Mama!! :)

    1. Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for dropping by. Nope, I didn't join the Restore workshop. But I'll be praying that it will be a blessed one for all those attending.
