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!

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."
