easter

Today is Holy Thursday. 

We should glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
in whom our salvation, life and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and delivered. Gal 6.14

Last Easter, Geoffrey had chosen to braid the palm leaves that we were given through our church. Looking back, it seems like such a long time ago. We were in quite a different stage in our lives. Remy had just turned one, my job of nine years was ending, and Geoff was frantically searching for a different career. Even though spring had come early last year, we were so consumed with the stress over losing our jobs and our home.

I wish that I could go back and tell myself to enjoy those days. To have trusted more in God and that everything would work out in the end. Because it did. 

Sure, there were bumps along the way, but that’s life. I really believe that if you’re a good person, work hard, and have some sort of faith, good things will come your way eventually.

What do you believe?

Happy early Easter!

hear the gentle rhythm

“God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world.” Acts 5:34-42; John 6:1-15

Today is the feast day of Saint Peter Chanel, priest and martyr. Our church bulletin reads:

“Peter Chanel … was one of the original members of the Society of Mary, commonly known as Marists. Today the society consists of ‘men and women who strive to live the gospel the way Mary lived … we too can hear the gentle rhythms of the grace of God in our lives by making our manner of thinking, judging, feeling, and acting.’ Listen to Mary and you, too, can be guided by her gentleness and grace. The world needs more of this kind of strength!” Kristopher Seaman

I was never particularly religious before having my daughter. Remy changed my views on almost everything, and as such, my Catholic faith was restored. I feel as if I resonate with Mary now that I, too, am a mother. I truly believe that myself and others could benefit from this way of living outlined above.

Have a lovely weekend, all.
