A Break

Visiting today, I was struck by a mother's love for her son. And for her husband.

Reminded of Our Blessed Mother, Mary, and her devotion to her Son.

To recite the Rosary is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary the face of Christ...Pope John Paul II

We are taking a break from home for a few days. One son tonight asks me a hard question. Hard to answer, hard to explain.

I fall back to prayer. To be more specific, I fall back to praying the Rosary.

Unschooling is sometimes nothing other than contemplating the face of Christ, in prayer and in my family.

I suck at this. Yet I keep on...

Good on you for keeping on. “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1).” I'm cheering you on. Go Leonie go. Yay!

we all "suck" at it... God has called us all in our weaknesses, limitations, in our anger, in our laughter, in our sorrow and in our joy to follow Him the best way we can and to strive for perfection, otherwise known as sanctity!

Chris - I love that verse, in the past, it has got me through many a tough time...Fr - thank you; you "get" it, my continual striving to follow Him, however imperfectly.
