I am trying to live each day "in the moment" and be mindful of how I am living my life. My goal is to become the most authentic, true version of myself that God created me to be.

This New Year I want to focus on the "word" I have chosen for 2017 and how it relates to my Spark Journey. I'm going to chose a new quote each month and see where it leads!


This is my motivation text for February 2017:

“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.”
Thomas Merton
“We shall steer safely through every storm so long as our heart is right, our intention fervent, our courage steadfast, and our TRUST fixed on God.”
St. Francis de Sales

February is the month of Love... so I want to do that... do everything I do in a spirit of love and compassion. Towards myself, and others.
I am going to TRUST my instincts. Slow down. Look at things with a different perspective.

    I take it slow and steady every day, otherwise I fall off the ride on a regular basis. Turtle is faster than nothing.

    Good morning, Sunshine!

    I love to go to morning mass. However, last week our priest was away getting rabies shots. There was a bat loose in the rectory and he felt he had been scratched. The bat was never apprehended.

    This week I don't know what happened. I've driven to church the past 2 mornings to find no mass. Because I don't attend weekend masses at my own church, I didn't have a bulletin to let me know there wouldn't be masses. Usually I pick one up at daily mass and Father will announce at daily masses if there is a change for the following week. I better call someone today and see what's up.

    I love receiving the Eucharist as often as possible. I love being in Church. I love adoration. Our God is so good and so merciful. Where would we be without his grace?

    Have a blessed day, my friend! emoticon

    Hi, my Spark Friend! Thanks for not giving up on me while I was "AWOL" so to speak! I am back on Spark People. I regained some weight from all the post-flooding stress-eating, I must confess! I am resolved to get back on my TREK to good health! Spark HUGS, Robyn

    Your church bazaar sounded awesome. You must have a fairly large church. Years ago I think we had around 300 families, but now maybe 1/3 of those are gone. We've been through a few changes and a few problems and some people don't care to work through things. They just leave.

    We had no vendors, but parishioners donated items for sale and for raffles. We also have a lady that makes rosaries and she had those exhibited for sale. The glass rosaries (which I had never seen before) sold for $12. I had previously purchased 14 of the plastic bead rosaries from her for my 7th grade CCD class - I teach at another church in the next town over. I was very tired when I got home, but very happy to have been able to serve.

    Have a great week! emoticon
