My spiritual life needs control, to dominate my passions, desires, and appetites. And each victorious "No" brings satisfaction to my heart, and I feel good.

What's in My Bag? A WOMAN'S PLACE... - February 5, 2015 Have you seen Lily Jade's diaper bags? I have pretty much been mooning over them since sometime before I was pregnant with James. When Paul asks if there's anything I want for any anniversary/Christmas/birthday I usually sigh dramatically and talk about this wonderful, beautiful, perfect diaper bag that is a backpack too and oh-my-goodness how awesome would a backpack/diaper bag be? until his eyes glaze over and I realize that I'm really only talking to myself about my ...http://awomansplaceis.blogspot.com/2015/02/whats-in-my-bag.html

Saint Sebastian COMMUNIO - January 20, 2015 ... godless and when the priest prayed the opening prayer I noted that through the intercession of these two martyrs we hope to progress in the communion of the faith and service in courage.

A Doorway REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - December 30, 2014 Here is Mary Oliver's poem"Praying" which I copied yesterday but lost it. It shows how we can go from awareness to wonder, from awe to prayer, and from prayer to adoration. It doesn't have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones, just pay attention, then patch A few words together and don!t try to make them elaborate, this isn't a contest but the doorway into thanks, and a silence in which another voice ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2014/12/a-doorway.html
