It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted here. I miss my blogging friends and their wonderful blogs that enlighten and inspire me to live my Christian faith where God has placed me.
Family life is busy, sometimes rushed, and never boring. Although most of my kids are young adults (and a couple of them do not live at home), the two youngest children still need to be driven everywhere – swimming lessons, music lessons, summer day camps, orthodontist appointments…. you get the picture! Time spent with my family is my first priority.
By the grace of God, my nursing work has kept me very busy over the last few months. I am very grateful for the work that I do and continue to ask Our Lord to allow me to serve Him in my neighbour through the skills He has given me.
I have accepted an invitation to establish a Parish Nursing ministry at my parish. For now, this is a paid, part-time position but there is so much potential for growth. I am very excited and extremely grateful for this opportunity. I am still working towards certification in Parish Nursing; the Fall semester will include 4 one-day seminar classes and a whole lot of essays (!)
My husband and I celebrated our thirtieth wedding anniversary in July. To commemorate the occasion, we and most of our children are taking a little holiday on Manitoulin Island, a beautiful area in northern Ontario. For many years, we rented a cottage there with our growing family. On the occasion of our thirtieth anniversary, we are looking forward to peace, quiet, and family time at a spot that holds many happy memories.
The Catholic Insight website where I also blog is undergoing some changes over the next few months so my work there will be sporadic. For the time being, the Priest Blog at Catholic Insight is still posting thoughtful, informative homilies every Sunday.
But no matter how hectic life gets, there’s always time for Holy Mass,
and family prayer.
Please God, I hope to visit with you all again soon. Take care of yourselves. God bless you and the wonderful way you live out your Christian faith.
Soli Deo Gloria!
