— 1 — This Week’s Post: Dear Sweet Frustrated Friend ~ I responded to the Frustration post from last week. I pray that my response brings peace and hope!
— 2 — Britt’s Guest Post: Britt from Proverbial Girlfriend will be providing a guest post next week. It’s a good one! Look for it on September 2nd! Thank you, Britt!!
— 3 — No Alone Series: This week the girls shared some fun things about themselves. I really enjoyed reading about each of the contributors and getting to know them better! They shared stories about how their parents met and listed the qualities they are looking for in a husband. To me, the most important qualities were captured by Danielle and Morgan. Danielle said that she is looking for a humble husband. Yes, yes, yes! I could do a whole post on this but will just offer that marriage to Gregg is easy due to his humility. Morgan said that she is looking for a ‘kind and affectionate’ husband. Wise girl, she is. I cannot imagine being in a marriage without affection. I know there are marriages where the man is ‘not affectionate’ but that just would not work for me. Anyway, great job to all the girls!
— 4 — Our Family: Our son, who is in 3rd grade, had to write about our family in his school journal. This is what he wrote:
“…A little over-protective but they are very nice. My Dad likes computers games and we both like football a lot! Our favorite team is the Chiefs. My Mom is very nice. She is the best cook I know. I love her very much. So that is my family. The end.”
Gregg and I had tears in our eyes we were laughing so hard. Especially being a ‘little over-protective.” Hey, it’s the love that makes us that way! Our son was delighted at how much we loved it. Oh, and my cooking is not that great but I am the best cook….that he knows. Anyway, he also sketched us doing computer stuff and cooking. 🙂
— 5 — St. Monica: Feast Day August 27th. I always tell young people that no one can break your heart like your child. St. Monica, pray for us!
— 6 — St. Augustine: Feast Day August 28th. Gregg and I went to Mass on Wednesday, the feast day of St. Augustine, to pray fo all the people who are suffering and in need of God’s mercy. St. Augustine gives us all hope. St. Augustine, pray for us!
— 7 — St. John the Baptist: Feast Day August 29th. This week was my favorite due to the feast days of all these great Saints. Wow, when I see the head of St. John the Baptist on that platter! I just shiver at the thought.
Nothing New ~ Adultery. People want what they want and they do not like others telling them that they must Repent. Let us never forget this steadfast Saint. St. John the Baptist, pray for us!
God love and bless you!
