7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 49

— 1 —   This Week’s Post:   Should Women Pursue Men?  Wow, this post received a lot of page views.  It is a good topic and I appreciate being able to quote Stephanie, Jen and Morgan!

— 2 —   Not Alone Series:  The topic this week was about Careers and Vocations.  It was great the way that each girl had a different insight into the topic.  When I was single, I was under the false impression that my career was the cause of my extended singleness.  I am a Mechanical Engineer and ooh ahh that just sounds so independent and non-traditional…..to some people.  But, I am a very traditional girl. Were some guys intimidated by my career?  Maybe.  But, the one that mattered (Gregg) was and is not intimidated…. mostly because I am not very intimidating and because of the Veil. 🙂  My point?  Do what you enjoy and follow the career path that aligns with your gifts and talents. The big V vocation will be revealed at a time designated by the Lord.  And, each aspect of your life will help with your ultimate goal…..Holiness.

  3 —   Spotlight onThis week’s spotlight is on David from Restless Pilgrim for his post on Vatican Wealth.  Nicely done, David.   

— 4 — First Friday and Saturday:  Today is the first Friday of the month.  I will be praying for all of you on my Divine Mercy Chaplet list today during Eucharistic Adoration of our Lord.  Don’t forget to check out the New Evangelist monthly magazine over at Convert Journal tomorrow!

— 5 —  Audrey AssadDid you see the post, A Few Thoughts On True Happiness by Audrey Assad?  She is a beautiful person.  My favorite quote?  This:

“…He used one of the most primordial and pervasive forms of leisure, the meal, to give us perhaps the greatest gift we have on earth—the Eucharist…”

— 6 —   Audrey Assad:  Listen to her angelic voice: Lead Me On

 — 7 — Angels Among Us:  This week’s Mass was a remembrance of our Guardian Angel and the first reading was from the Book of Exodus.  Our faith tells us that we are entertaining Angels and I find that very comforting.

See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes.”My angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites; and I will wipe them out. Exodus 23:20-23

God love and bless you!
