7 Quick Takes Friday, February 15th

For More Quick Takes, visit Conversion Diary!
- 1 - Just saw some AWESOME news (relative to Television anyway)...One of my absolute favorite shows from childhood was Boy Meets World.  So much so, that last year, I watched almost the entire series in 20 minute increments while waiting for Ashelyn to get ready in the morning before taking her to school.  NOW, I see a post of Facebook from one of my teens that they are producing a sequel!  Yes, you read me right - Girl Meets World and she will be The Matthews' daughter.  Already on the cast are the goofy, adorable couple themselves, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel happily reprising their roles as Cory and Topanga. (according to this article)

Can't wait to watch this and see if their 'happily ever after' lived up to the standards in my mind!

- 2- Writing of TV, I watched Bones on Monday night and fell in love even more with Booth!  I know, he's married in real life and even in a fully committed relationship on the show.  I am inspired by their relationship.  I realize that it is written for TV, isn't a real-life HOWEVER, I find it promising that the writers are portraying a healthy relationship.  A few weeks ago when they were re-doing their Last Will & Testaments, booth had a really heartfelt moment at the end of the show.  And then this week with Bones almost dying (sorry for a spoiler) I can see how they may actually be on the path toward marriage.  Check it out!

- 3 - In other news, (which I'm sure you've heard) the Pope Resigned.  Our own Father Kauth even spoke on the subject on the local news.  I'm not sure my feelings on the subject, so I'm just going to stick to the facts - he resigned. 

- 4 - Tonight is my last event with the Youth Ministry program here at the parish.  I'm a little sad and a little relieved to be perfectly honest.  Not sure what will come of it!

- 5 - I've always thought of going to the Chiropractor and this week I began some treatment on my neck and lower spine.  I'm eager to see the results.

- 6 - In a quest to meet more people and 'get myself out there' (words of my Spiritual Director), MG and I joined a Kick-Ball League.  It should be begins at the end of March.  Maybe our new friends or future husbands also have an interest in a game of ball that you kick!

- 7 - Nothing much else, glad the week is over.  It had a rough beginning and I think it will be ending a little early today.  I need to do some laundry and also to pack for our overnight famine tonight.  See you later!  Maybe Monday, it is a day off and since my Lenten Fast doesn't include TV, I've got a lot of freed-up time!

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!

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…

(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…
