CWA Time people!!! One of my favorite days of the week around here (I love Sundays too) Link up time over at Suscipio! Pretty self-explanatory, just respond to the bold items and link up!
::Growth. My own growth – and thankful to God for making it so.
::Picking up where I left off.
::Answered prayers about my boys and possibility
::A day of rest. Knitting, tea, Dominican chant, reading…ahhhh.
::Friends (Theresa, I’m looking at you) who take the time to share with me.
::The strong need to go to Adoration each week.
::Please pray for my Suscipio sister, Angela. She was just diagnosed with cancer. These are the times I wish I lived closer to people. Then I’d be moving a lot.
::Please pray for a long time friend, back in my life, E. She has a tumor near the front stem of her brain. Looks benign, but please pray for her healing. Surgery is in December to have it removed.
::Special intentions. I am praying a whopper of a novena. The 54 day grande dame novena, in fact called the Rosary Novena to Our Lady. I am doing this with my friend Tiffany. We also are choosing an hour each week to spend before our Lord in adoration. Last time I had a migraine, this time, I cried. I guess that’s better??
::My friends, especially Pickles, S and the ladies over at Suscipio and Catholic Mom Cafe.
::Those in the pews who struggle in their faith, are atheists, or who have fallen asleep.
::My husband. Why? Because I love him.
Thinking and Reflecting
I am reflecting on my meekness. On my patience in all things. On realizing that I may think I’m patient, but I’m not. This came to mind:
How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
I try to count them—they are more than the sand;
I come to the end—I am still with you.
- The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis I can’t recommend this enough. This is my second time reading it.
- I am always in my Christian Prayer book for the Liturgy of the Hours.
I love this. It’s The Beatitudes Sung by Nóirín Ní Riain & the monks of Glenstal Abbey. Absolutely beautiful. Please listen to is. It’s only about 3 minutes.
Tonight it’s cinnamon crumb muffins for a pot luck tomorrow at work. I was supposed to make carrot cake cupcakes, but as always, I think I have more time than I actually do.
Homing & Making
I finished that scarf for Gabriel and am now on a scarf for Alex. I am trying the double seeded stitch. Bad idea. You have to pay attention to do it. I keep forgetting my place. Now the scarf has two different patterns. Looks like th double seed stitch is getting eaten by what I now dub the “crazy stitch”.
I didn’t make this, Lexicon did, but I had to share it. It’s a rosary! He made this at school.
Here’s Little Monk’s scarf. He loves it…but it’s a little itchy.
Around the Web
::A cute knit and crochet community called Ravelry.com Ever been?
::I visited this blogger. A Woman’s Place … head over. I think you’ll like it. I know I did. I wish I lived near her too.
::I spent time on this blog too (you’ll see a comment from me if you look hard enough) My new love, Lectio Divina. Read about Lectio-to-go on A Cloistered Heart
We got some sweet treats from Em-and-the-gang this weekend and a Dominican themed rosary with some knits-n-stuffs from Tiff at the end of what was a spiritually brutal week. They are a thoughtful couple of gals.
Tonight is #RCIA – pray for conversion and to the Holy Spirit!
