Thank you Spidey. Think this will be my selected reading as I begin my next quilting group.
I've been such a slacker this Lent. I think I need to step it up a bit. I'm having a spiritual dry spell. Anyone else ever had one of those?
AND grilled cheese and onion sandwiches, that's what we had last night, Friday. There's also seashell noodles and a couple can of Rotel or plain tomatoes with a salad for example.
Of course, HollyGolightly, the saints battled dry spells all of the time, the point is, is to hang in there hold to your faith and you will come out of it soon.
Yes Holly....a 25+ year one. It really helped me to see beauty in nature, meditate and pray, and find a church that is growth and service oriented. I believe we are all called in different ways and it is a still, calm, and loving voice that speaks. We've discussed Lent meanings in adult forum.
Often people believe they have to give up, but why not add into something that draws you in closer to God? Such as a quick morning devotion or a two minute prayer, a gratitude list, or a morning stroll?
I cannot agree about the gravies and the bits of bacon, does not sound right. Don't know this group, but I will adhere to the rules I had while growing up.
Excellent advice - I started out strong with a morning devotion and then slipped back. I just need to do it.
Thank you - that's so true. We've got Restless Heart coming for movie night at our parish next week. Looking forward to it - it's the Confessions of St. Augustine.
Pretty much, my twenties and thirties.
Me too - back then I claimed to be a Quaker Buddhist Christian Jew. I embraced all things and believed nothing. I was kind of a mess.
How weird!No matter how I try,I can't get this site to come up on my 'puter. Our parish is using the rubric on Catholic.org, so if it's different it's a no go It's no big thing anyway--a little denial never hurt anyone
Teaching this year is really keeping me on task with Lent. I felt a little slack the last couple of years, maybe because our kids are 'trained' (lol)--not as much teaching involved. In contrast, most of the kids in my class come from pretty non observant families--trying to teach them as much as I can this year, and keeping it relevant to their lives, has re-energized me a bit
Me too, and into my 40s.
In my forties, I hit serenity. Kind of a Zen-ish thing, perhaps. The place where the journey led was not apparent at the start. But I'm fine with it. And of course, you listen and look as you stroll, and the journey never really ends. You learn to enjoy the walk.
It was in our 40s that my husband and I found our way back to the Catholic church. We now attend the most wonderful Jesuit church and I am understanding and believing in the Catholic religion like never before.
That's so exciting! A Jesuit church - I've never been to one.
I generally like the Jesuits. I knew a couple Jesuit priests while I was in college, and they were sincere, likable guys. I approved of the new Pope being Jesuit, although I rather doubt that my approval factored into his selection.
I had not been to one before we found this one. Here's a liknk to the church's web site. Have a look around!
Edit: guess we're not allowed to post church web sites. Oh well.
Drat - you can inbox it to me.
I didn't delete it and I appear to be the only moderator in today. So, it must be some blocker on the site.
