Every Thursday at CatholicMom.com, we celebrate everyone’s small (and not so small) successes. Come on over, add your link or add your own successes to the comments section.
List three things you are grateful for this week: victories over minutia, victories over the big stuff, blessings which you have received which reveal the breathing presence of God’s grace in your life. Then ask a friend to come and participate too.
It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve joined the small success link-up at CatholicMom.com. I’m so glad to be here today to connect with everyone and celebrate our small, and not so small successes.
Advent: I got the Advent wreath down from the attic, found the candles and prayers and now after our evening family Rosary, we pray the week’s Advent prayers. I’m grateful that year after year, we gather to pray in the evening. I’m grateful for the gift of Advent and for the reminder of the importance of the season symbolized by a simple wreath and four pretty candles.
How many veils does a woman need? This week, I’ve been enjoying the #veilproject link-up that Cristina and Tiffany have started. I added my link and am having fun following everyone on twitter. If you’ve been thinking about veiling, or if you wear a church veil/mantilla, or if you’re curious about why we veil, come and read everyone’s thoughts.
To answer my own question: I’ve just ordered a twilight blue infinity veil at Veils by Lily. It’s so beautiful, I can’t wait to wear it! This is my third veil. Is there such a thing as veil gluttony?
Deadlines: I finally finished (and only a little bit late) my latest magazine article for the Canadian Catholic publication where I write and blog: Catholic Insight Magazine. It’s an article that’s very near and dear to my heart since I wrote about people I see on a professional basis: the elderly who are struggling and how we can help them.
Advent silence: I have been scheduling in much needed quiet time in front of the Blessed Sacrament during my busy day. That’s a monumentous success! Thank you, Lord for inviting me.
