What about Today?

Thanks to Julie over at PBFingers!
So this morning I set my alarm for 6:20 so I could go run, but when it went off, there was NO way I was getting out of bed to run...I could hardly muster the energy to change the alarm time to 7:20 so I could get up in enough time for work.  Then when it did go off at 7:20, I snoozed for 10 minutes and then STILL I couldn't get up...luckily I awoke again at 8.  In just the nick of time to shower, get ready, and even have time to go into my office before going into the Main Office (my Wednesday job) by 8:45!!!

Wow, what a tired morning - and I'm still tired.  On my 3rd or 4th (depending on how you classify the LARGE cups I drink) of coffee.  Maybe I'll be awoken by Mass before we head off this afternoon to be with the hundred plus children and Sisters!

But anyway - this graphic struck me when I was going through my GoogleReader feed.  If only I had had some determination earlier, I wouldn't regreat my bad training now!  Yesterday I made it through but I have NO idea how I am going to get through next week's workout - 4min runs with only 1min walks in between.  I guess that's why we go one week at a time and not 30min runs from the beginning! 

I should be looking at all I have accomplished instead of all I have yet still to accomplish!  That would be a better use of my time most likely!  So, on to tomorrow - definitely need to get a workout in after being with the kiddos before going Uptown with the gals!

I Look Into my Inbox and What Did I See?

I receive the weekly notes from the Catholic Match Institute since my unsuccessful dabble in Online
Dating some time ago (link) and today's included the face of one of my favorite priests. A man who helped me become the Catholic woman, for better or worse, that I am today. He is doing a series of five videos for CM through Advent. The first two are below ... I encourage you to watch them and stay tuned for the next three! Fr. Ananias, OSB - what an Advent treat!

(almost) Another Year Older

Today is the day before my 32nd birthday. Thirty-Two years alive in this world and I sit down to try to actively think about what I've done in the last year, what I've accomplished to keep my mind from being overwhelmed by what I haven't done: marriage and kids.

When I was a kid, it snowed every single year on my birthday until I moved to Charlotte almost 9 years ago. Now this year, well it's the day before, but in Charlotte that's close enough to count I wake up to the below. So many of my birthday parties were cancelled or changed when I was a kid because of a giant snowstorm.

But anyway, back to the things I've accomplished this past year. I became a godmother, again, to a young woman who came into the Church through RCIA with her father. At 17 she was baptized and confirmed at the Easter Vigil.I was promoted at work. Twice. I've been given the opportunity to develop a new product offering and am going to spend the next year implementing it at a parish ju…

When Others Despise You

In general I appreciate when people like me, as I think most people do. For me, it's really hard when people dislike me, even if I don't have to be around them all of the time. I get anxious thinking about the next time we will be in the same location and if I'll be able to just kindly avoid them or if there will be an awkward confrontation. There's a line in scripture about how blessed we are when others despised us because they hated Him first. Him, being Jesus, of course.

But is that always the case? Am I applying a section of scripture to a situation to which it has no relationship? Am I using a passage of scripture to make myself feel better about the actions that I'm going to take, to justify it to myself and others? Am I manipulating the Lord's words to promote my own agenda in the name of the Lord?

I wonder this regarding many things. Passages like "The Lord will fulfill His promises" in relationship to my relationship status. Did He promise t…
