I am still listening to christmas songs. i plan to keep it up till epiphany. then christmas is officially done. i have not taken down my decorations yet. i am busy with other habits i want to start. for instance, i want to do my inital lector readings on modays or tuesdays. i tend to feel disorganized by thursday or friday and end up doing it quick saturdays. my church has 2 lectors and i am not on the schedule yet but i want to be ready to sub if needed.

I was Lector II at 8 am Mass today. There were not many people this morning in attendance, and almost everyone was coughing or sneezing. Most of us looked like wet rats! LOL!
Fortunately my voice did not give out. The Spirit allowed it to be smooth and clear. I knew better than to try to sing. A frog would sound better at this point... emoticon
Decide to go out for lunch. I'll make our New Year's traditional foods tomorrow.
emoticon We made it through 2016! Here's to a Sparkin' New Year!
Let's Spark our Faith in the coming year, too! Let the Light shine! emoticon the Love we've been shown!

Sophiedo, it sounds as if your Christmas will be even warmer than mine! It's great to be able to spend time outside, even if only to take a walk. Also, my parish puts on a Live Nativity, so we're grateful for good weather. Merry Christmas to all the Catholic Critters!

What kind of weather are you expecting for Christmas? Here in Corpus Christi, the forecast is for a high of 76 and a low of 68, partly cloudy and windy - not very wintry, but not at all unheard of for this part of Texas! I may drive to San Antonio that afternoon to be with my family, so decent weather will help me to make that decision.

rhook I really like your letter written 2 ways....i tend to be an optimist, (most of the time) which has served me well. I really enjoyed reading it.

Eliza I hope you just need a battery. Prayers for you.

Safe trip to all who will be on the roads this Christmas....watch out for yourself and of course you have to watch out for the other person.

I'm feeling much better this afternoon after a nap.

As a large part of our country is going into a polar plunge in temperatures, let us remember to take care of ourselves during these freeezing times. Dress in layers, and plan your trips and be prepared. Is your car packed for an emergency? We have a trip across state this weekend and I hope my car is up to these temps. It is only a year old so the battery should be good.

Let Go and Let God!

Today i went to my grandma's house to help her and my mom makes some christmas candies. my job was to be the "young one". mostly trips upstairs and trips to the cellar and other fetching tasks. also to reach on shelves my grandma can't get to. it was a fun day. tiring but fun. also i got to tease my mom so that was a blast for me.

An article on Attitude...

A famous writer was in his study. He picked up his pen and began writing:

**
Last year, my gall bladder was removed. I was stuck in bed due to this surgery for a long time.


The same year I reached the age of 60 and had to give up my favorite job.
I had spent 30 years of my life with this publishing company.


The same year I experienced the death of my father.


In the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in the
hospital with a cast on his leg for several days.

And the destruction of the car was a second loss.


His concluding statement: Alas! It was such bad year!!

When the writer's wife entered the room, she found her husband looking dejected, sad and lost in his thoughts. She carefully and surreptitiously read what he had written, and silently left the room and came back shortly with another piece of paper on which she had written her summary of the year's events and placed it beside her husband's paper.


When her husband saw that she had written something in response he read her take on the year's events:


She wrote:


** Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder which had given me many years of pain.


I turned 60 with sound health and retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write better and with more focus and peace.


The same year my father, at the age of 95 without depending on anyone and without any critical conditions, met his Creator.


The same year, God blessed my son with life. My car was destroyed, but my son was alive and without
permanent disability.


At the end she wrote: This year was an immense blessing and it passed well!!
See!!
The same incidents but different viewpoints.
Moral:
In daily lives we must see that it's not happiness that makes us grateful,


but gratefulness that makes us happy.
There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.


ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING....


And attitude is the one thing that we always, in every circumstance, have control over.


Let Go and Let God!

My church had a St. Nicks night event for children tonight. there some songs, the story of the man and his acts as bishop. then the kids got to visit with st nick, get a small present then make a couple craft items and eat cookies. i took my 8 year old niece. the other niece was sick. so it was easier for me to only have to watch 1 kid. she had fun and talked to other kids. i like the fact that the people who plan it do a neat job.

8 But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day. 9The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some think of slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance. 10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and everything that is done on it will be disclosed.

2 Peter 3: 8-10

Cold and cloudy here this morning... we haven't had but a trace of rain in 50 days... need it badly. The smoke from our mountain wildfires was bad for awhile, but seems to be much improved now.
We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving.
I am doing Fr. Gaitley's Consecration to Jesus Through Mary at Church each Monday with a group.
We are hosting an exhibit of St. Teresa of Calcutta's relics 12/3-12/9!!!
Trying to follow my SparkPlan...
Remembering everyone in my prayers!

a simple but sweetly eventful weekend. thanksgiving is always nice. i like spending time with all my family. at least most of them. some cousins moved away or married and are with the other side of their family. saturday was nice because i spent time with a friend who lives in another state. she is not catholic but i love talking about matters of faith with her. we even prayed together and afterward i felt so unburdend and inspired. then i went to evening mass and we had an extra treat in choir. the cantor has a twin brother who was visiting and is also a great tenor. As a joke he came along to choir practice so we invited hime to join uis. it was neat to hear the strong masculine voices in mass. vibratto and everything. so i came home saturday night feeling energized.

Luckily they do not decorate the "mom's" room, which is typical so I have found my home for the season, plus little kids love me. (I used to do the Children's Liturgy of the Word and have fun games to play. Thanks for suggesting it!

I forgot ANGELASUE44212, if you want to see the decorations, talk to the person who is in charge of decorating. if they know there are allergies, they may eitehr only use then outside, use less or put them only on one side. i helped before lent and there were a couple things that were put on one side only because the people allergic to that plant could sit on the otherside.

after mass we had a lectors meeting. i never lectored and my "new" parish but i did do it at my old parish. I've been a member for almsot a year. The person in cfharge of lectors married to the choir director. she found me first. so now that i am used to choir and cantered once, and also have been trained as a eucharistic minister, i feel more ready to do lectoring. i guess they have been really short on lectors. so i am glad to be jumping in.

Thanksgiving message: (Adopted from St.Vincent de Paul ideology)

Thanksgiving...A Time to give God Thanks

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep ...
you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace ...
you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ...
you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ...
you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death ...
you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful ...
you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder ...
you are blessed because you can offer a healing touch.

If you can read this message ...
you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

THANKSGIVING is indeed a time to BE THANKFUL ...
so count your blessings and remember how blessed you are. Amen

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Let Go and Let God!

I saw this in my email this morning from the Daily Minute Meditation.
It has me thinking a lot today

emoticon

I believe we have the power to end global poverty, change the systems of injustice, drive economic opportunity, and end modern-day slavery, and that part of the reason we have not yet done so is because so many of us don’t believe that. So many of us negate our own power of influence, of impact, by thinking of ourselves as too small.

We have smoke from the NC mountain wildfires filling our air... please remember those folks whose homes are threatened by the fires, and the firefighters striving to put them out... and the poor animals!

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!

i found this article a week ago and kept forgetting to share it. i will admit i dont pray for our leaders, other then when a petition is mentioned at mass. but i am starting to add leaders and those that surround them in my daily prayers. i have lost part of my prayer routine so this will be a good way to reestablish it.

CC~ So glad you got to experience the marriage weekend!

CJ~ Here's what I'm reading and I would highly recommend each book:

* Navigating the Interior Life, Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God by Daniel Burke

* The Fulfillment of All Desire, A Guidebook for the Journey to God Based on the Wisdom of the Saints by Ralph Martin (the Purgative, Illuminative and Unitive Ways)

* Theology for Beginners by F.J. Sheed

They are blowing my mind, and also helping me to see God and myself in a new way. What I had considered progress prior to cracking the covers on these books now seems so shallow, but I have not been left without direction, hope, and an awesome God to help me on this journey. I'm very excited and awed, sometimes confused, a bit anxious but trusting in God to give me understanding and whatever else I need in His time. WOW. Good stuff!

We experienced a Worldwide Marriage Encounter this weekend. It changed both of us. I am very grateful we listened to God's nudging and went. It was exhausting! But very rewarding!

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!

SHAPNUP - I'm glad that you have the time to spend with your mother now. Good luck with your biggest Loser Challenge and your gym membership!
What books would you recommend?

Bob - that is a healthy fundraising success!
Turkey chili - sounds lovely. I've made turkey tacos and chicken chili, but never turkey chili.

Eliza - sparkpeople workout videos - what a good idea! I always forget those!

Carol - mmmm...lasagne. Good stuff! emoticon

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Dad passed last year, so my focus is on Mom, now. She's in assisted living in the next town over. I spend quite a bit of time there. I retired from my full-time job last year and started a part-time job. I worked that job for nearly a year and 2 months ago quit that, too. I've joined a Biggest Loser Winter Challenge on Spark and a gym in real life. emoticon I've been reading some fabulous books by Catholic authors, getting to know God better and getting ready to work with my spiritual director in May, once he is ordained (Deacon).

My favorite winter meals include chili and soups. Gotta throw a pizza in there once in a while. I like a hot cup of tea in the mornings to get me going.

Winter activities - well, I like curling up with a good book or movie. I actually do enjoy shoveling snow. it's a good workout and I love getting back in the house after I've done it!

What is happening in your life now that fall is here and winter is on its way?
We just had our annual St. Vincent de Paul dinner auction last night. I chair this every year and it is really exhausting, but it is a labor of love that I look forward to. Although our attendees were down this year, we raised around $7000 to help with utility assistance that we provide during the winter months.

What is your favourite healthy meal for this time of year?
I love a pot of chili, made with turkey. Or a good pot of vegetable soup or beef stew.

What is your favourite cooler weather activity?
I belong to a winter bowling league, and tend to visit the YMCA at least once a week to swim. I always say I will try and do it more often, however I never seem to find the time.

Let Go and Let God!

As the clock changes, and the weather turns colder, our thoughts turn from picnics and barbecues to warm, homemade stews and casseroles, and holiday seasons.
