A Story of Intercession: Getting to Know My Mama Mary

A Story of Intercession: Getting to Know My Mama Mary

This space has been quiet lately. I’ve been quiet lately. We recently journeyed through the Passion of our Lord and celebrated His Resurrection. My focus has been on my own journey and where God is leading me. It is not away from writing, but my journey has taken me on a bit of a detour. I can relate very closely with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, from yesterday’s Gospel reading. After Jesus’ death, they returned to their hometown…

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday

Holy Week, the most solemn and intense periods of worship in the Christian faith, begins with Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. In spite of the spiritual gravity of Holy Week, it begins with joy. The Church celebrates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and the Church begins her commemorative pilgrimage with her Lord on His way to Calvary. —Author unknown— We just returned from a beautiful Mass at our cathedral, in spite of some very naughty twins. (Sigh.) As much…

Twin Tornadoes

Twin Tornadoes

That is what I have affectionately (or perhaps unaffectionately =) nicknamed my two-year-old twins. They. are. tornadoes. In every sense of the term. It is a phase, a stage, I know. But why, oh, why does it have to be now? When we are already in the midst of a complete transition? When life already isn’t normal? When, at times, these walls truly feel like they are closing in on me? I cannot tell you how many times these little…

Here is a brief summary of their birth story, as told by my husband in an e-mail he sent out after we arrived home from the…

More Than Enough

More Than Enough

This seems like the perfect time to finally explain the inspiration behind the title of my blog. Because it was around this time, two years ago, that I first became familiar with a song with the same title. Perhaps you’ve heard it before … But before I get to the song and how it fits into my life, I will share what was going on two years ago at this exact time. It all started on Nov. 1, 2007. In…

{Not So} Wordless Wednesday—They’re At It Again!

{Not So} Wordless Wednesday—They’re At It Again!

They’re at it again. Playing in the Tupperware cabinet. The photo of girl twin sitting in a big bowl cracks me up. And did you see the princess headband on boy? They’re so much fun (but sometimes they’re a bit naughty, too =) Happy Wednesday to you, dear friends, whether it’s wordless or not!

Double Trouble

Double Trouble

I went downstairs briefly this morning to take some meat out of the freezer for dinner and to reply to an e-mail about picnic plans that we have later this week with some friends. When I returned upstairs, this is the scene I came back to … An entire big box of Cheerios dumped on the living room floor. Double trouble. That is what I have on my hands these days. The twins are into everything. It’s not one toddler…
