Some new housekeeping. Changed the age of my 4th child, added a new prayer, and added a new blog. The Kitchen Madonna has intrigued me with her reflections of food and holiness, feeding the body and the soul, and using wit and wisdom to do it. Check her out!

Here is an excerpt:

"Finding the sacred in the everyday is as simple as doing the tasks before you with great mindfulness, not worrying about the overdrawn checkbook or tomorrow's meeting. Losing yourself in the task at hand, simply put yourself in the Presence of God, letting go of any distracting thoughts as they invariably surface. This is what is classically known as the discernment of thoughts, what the Church offered centuries and centuries before that secular gift known as cognitive therapy. Constantly return to the trust and peace that comes with abandoning yourself to Divine Providence. In time, you won't notice how long it takes to wash the dishes because you will have entered Kairos or eternal time. God's time."

I so wish I could stop worrying about the debt, but it's a hard thing to do...even so, I know that I must continually raise my heart and mind to God and Trust in Him alone.

thanks for the reminder Renee!

Thanks for quoting my blog! I'm a single mom who has to make a living from my writing so it means a lot! I'm trying out how to be part of the blogosphere community and you have been so gracious! I'm trying to write about the feminine issues and elevate what we do to something society respects.
Back to the broom and blessings.
