things on my mind

First off, I had a wonderful day! My friend Pamela and her mother (and baby Gianna!) came and spent the day with me. Pamela is my sponsor as I go through the RCIA process, and today's Rite was the first she was able to attend with me. After Mass we ate lunch and then came back to my house and discussed Catholic traditions and issues. Then we headed back to the Cathedral for an awesome service. Bishop Corrada was powerful today, both at Mass and at the afternoon service.

Amelie's also very much on my mind today. She is really testing me and feeling for her limits. I need to be very mindful this week to strike quickly at disobedience, or she is going to be completely out of control. Let me tell you, spanking would be so much easier right now. I have to really make a conscious decision to not do that. She also seems over-sensitive for some reason, so I think some extra attention needs to be dished out.

I'd like to post more, but duty calls so I need to wrap up my computer time for the night. I do want to leave you with this link about Red Envelope Day. I've come across this movement three times now, and I don't want to forget about it! As you're preparing your envelope (or envelopes) to be mailed, please say an extra prayer for the unborn and that hearts across America will change on this issue.

  1. Thank you for inviting us yesterday. We had a wonderful day. I have really enjoyed getting tou know you again these past few months. I think God must have laughed in High School because we had no idea what was in store for us! God Bless you!
