{simple saturday} one

love this idea from country girl's daybook for a simple saturday link-up i was directed to from grace this evening.

something simple...

i'm really missing the beach...i told someone today that i would follow any man who led me to the beach. he said he'd keep that in mind. so i thought, 'any man'? nah

but always on the look out for jobs at the beach, yes ma'am...youth ministry, office management, confirmation coordinator, sand sweeper, you name it - if it looks good, i'm diving right in!

i need more mornings where my prayer time looks like this

and the view is this

...and that is all.

for more 'simple saturdays' head on over to iris and friends


  1. I totally hear you about the beach... I spent a week in California a few months ago and I've been dreaming about it ever since. I will live there someday. Close to the beach. I WILL. I have to... LOL. *sigh* ... a view like that every day. Praying on the beach is one of the loveliest things ever. Ever ever ever. Can you tell I like the beach?

    Thanks for linking up! I look forward to the future. :)

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…
