Humility Doesn’t Equal Self-Deprecation

Humility Doesn’t Equal Self-Deprecation

If there is one thing about my inner monologue that needs to change, it’s self-deprecation.  For how long have I thought that being humble, showing humility was all about putting myself down?  Or denying what is true and good about myself? Have you done that?  […]

Monday Morning Quick Takes

Monday Morning Quick Takes

Good morning, y’all!  I thought I’d write up a few quick takes about things that are going on in my world.  These things really don’t necessitate entire blog posts on their own, but I still feel they’re worth mentioning.  Sound good? As I write this, […]

The Lent “Do I Gotta?”s and an Old Grade School Prayer

The Lent “Do I Gotta?”s and an Old Grade School Prayer

Two more days until Lent. There are two more days of Ordinary Time before the Church dons her purple cloaks and her ashes.  Two more days until we are reminded that we are dust, and to dust we shall return. Scratch that.  It’s 1:30 in […]

Well, this has been a very Lent-y week, friends.  Highs and lows, lots of fun and lots of trials.  Our oldest went on a band trip to New Orleans and the younger ones spent the night at their grandma’s.  I participated in the Florida Eucharistic […]

Lenten Photo Journal 2018: Week 5

I don’t know how you’re feeling about Lent this year, but it’s been kicking my butt.  Hard core. I’m not sure why that is, exactly.  It’s not like things around here have been terrible.  Nothing awful has happened.  Then again, nothing phenomenal has happened, either.  […]

Lenten Photo Journal 2018: Week 4

I’d just like to state for the record that, even though I’ve been sick as a dog this week, I only missed one day of the photo journal.  Not too shabby! What do you say we get right to it? Friday of Week 4 – […]

Lenten Photo Journal 2018: Week 3

This week has really brought a bit of introspection for me.  Maybe it was hormones, PMS, the fact that my husband was out of town…who knows?  But he is back now, so at least that part of my world is right again. Let’s dive right […]

Lenten Photo Journal 2018: Week 2

The first full week of Lent is behind us.  How is it going for you?  It’s a suuuuuper Lenty Lent around here.  Kid #4 with the flu, a million obligations…the usual stuff.  But for some reason, I’m struggling this year.  Maybe it’s because I was […]
