Loving the Lovetts

A couple weeks ago Lent hit me.

I knew we were here and in this midst of this season, but all this time I felt like I was just going through the motions. I wanted it to be more. I wanted to feel more, to live more, to unite more closely to Christ.

Nothing in my life changed, but He allowed me to be a small part of another’s suffering. It was just enough to make my heart ache and reach for hope in the Lord.

I see a wife and mother, like myself. I see pictures of her life, similar to mine. I see her young children, and their bundled little faces in their winter coats. I don’t know why cancer is such a random and unfair thing to have. This family, that could be any of ours, is going through a trial and needs love and support from all of us.

Please, pray for the Lovett Family...

Little Mothers, Ponder in Your Hearts

The Feast of the Annunciation was a couple days ago. In staying true to my life as a busy mother, I am a couple days behind in posting this. The Annunciation is my favorite decade of the rosary. I have prayed that decade more than any other. It is fitting that the Feast falls in Lent this year, because has given me an opportunity to reflect on the passage.

Luke 1:26-30  “…the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be.And the a...

Sacrificing Sex For Lent?!

Don’t give up sex for Lent!

…..(unless you are not married, in which case, give it up)..

Every year during Lent I hear about couples that choose to abstain from more than just meat on Fridays….Well,..heh… I mean more than just eating flesh meat. I get it. It makes sense why they come up with this idea. We are supposed to give up/sacrifice something in our lives that is a “want” or something enjoyable….something that will make us suffer a little bit when we don’t have it. And these Catholic couples are looking for a pious and meaningful sacrifice.

I have heard a few say that they give it up the WHOLE 40 days, or maybe just on Fridays, or even just on Good Friday.  I get that!  And sex may seem like a good option. The intention is good, and I am sure it is quite the sacrifice for some.
