7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 32

— 1 —   This Week’s Post: Is Your Smile is Like Honey ……All you need in order to flirt with a guy is your smile!   Enjoy!

— 2 —   Spotlight On:  This week’s Spotlight is on Morgan from Follow and Believe and Jen from Jumping in Puddles.  They are the co-hosts of a new series started this week.  It is called the Not Alone Series and it is a weekly link-up where Single girls participate and blog about various subjects unique to the Single Girl’s life. This week included an Introduction post by each blogger and next week they are discussing Discernment.  I checked out the first set of contributors and the series went International right away!  What a powerful way for single girls to link up, support and encourage each other. If you have a blog, Morgan and Jen will graciously welcome you.  If you do not have a blog, head on over with a cup of coffee and enjoy the links!

— 3 — Made In His Image:  Goes viralDid you hear about it this week?  Maura’s site got something like 130,000 hits (I think that is what I read) and blew up 2 servers.  Way to go Maura!  I had to include this part of her post:

“..Where does the power come from? It comes from the Sacraments and spending time with God in Adoration. Speak to our loving Father tonight, ask Him to help you. Ask Him for grace, tell Him your fears, joys and sorrows. Let the Healer hug you. Hold onto Him. Cling to the Cross, for this is where our sanctification rests.”

— 4 —  Magnifikid:  My Mom got our son a subscription to Magnifikid magazine for his birthday.  It includes these awesome little weekly missal type magazines.  The magazine includes the whole Mass, including the readings for that week as well as games and stories about Saints.  It has greatly improved our son’s participation in the Mass.  He loves it.  What a great gift!

— 5 —  Corpus Christi Mass:  Our Mass included 16 Altar Boys, 2 Seminarians, 1 Deacon and 1 Priest.  I almost cried at the sight of all those Altar Boys kneeling at the Communion Rail, all receiving on the tongue.  The Reverence overwhelmed me.  The incense filled the sanctuary.  My hair smelled divine.  Have I mentioned the number of vocations coming out of our County?  A lot.  The Holy Spirit is on the move and we are so blessed to be caught up in the fire of His love!

— 6 — This Week’s Readings:  The readings this week from the Book of Tobit reminded me of a post I did back in October. The post is called “Does God Arrange Marriages.” I was a relatively new little baby blogger when I wrote the post but it seemed to be inspired.  What do you think? 🙂

— 7 — Old Testament Girl:  I love the Old Testament!  My current Bible study is the book of Isaiah.  I love Genesis and Exodus and the Book of Wisdom.  I love it all.  Heck, I even like Leviticus!  Today, I will leave you with a little something from the Book of Sirach:

“He plumbs the depths and penetrates the heart; their innermost being he understands. The Most High possesses all knowledge, and sees from of old the things that are to come: He makes known the past and the future, and reveals the deepest secrets. No understanding does he lack; no single thing escapes him.”   Book of Sirach 42:15-25.

God love and bless you!

  1. I have seen a copy of the MagnifiKid before, I liked it so much I almost wanted to use it instead of the adult version! 🙂
    Isaiah is my favorite OT prophet, my spiritaul director had me read it a few months back and it was good for me. Have a wonderful weekend!
