7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 61

— 1 —   This Week’s Post:  Are You A Priority Or Just An Option?  Some tough love served with a spoonful of humble pie!

— 2 —   Next Week’s post:  Ohhhhh, I am sooo excited to share with you a guest post that will be up this Monday, January 13th!  The title is “Where Would I Be Without The Veil?” and you are going to love the guest blogger!

 3 —  Meg:  Our friend Meg Hunter-Kilmer will be staying at our house this weekend!  She is presenting her Apologetics Bootcamp class at our Parish this weekend and we have the privilege of hosting her.  I’ll report back on the fun next week!

— 4 —  Spotlight On:  This week’s spotlight is once again on……Ta  da! Emily Stimpson!  Check out this post!

“I reread my own words here and am embarrassed by them; by the presumptiousness of one who needs others to live as he has been, himself, unwilling to live.“  What Catholic Tradition Means to a Protestant by Paul Harvey

— 5 —   Spotlight On:  The next spotlight is on Jen from Jumping in Puddles for her book review of……Emily Stimpson’s The Catholic Girls Survival Guide.  Great job, Jen!

— 6 —    Life is It:  Most, if not all, of you are too young to remember the “Coke Is It” slogan and commercials.  I know you may have seen the latest commercial that has been going around but I have to share it in case you did not see it.  It is pro-baby and pro-love. It perfectly expresses the excitement that a couple in love feel when learning of new life and the privilege of being co-creators of a new soul.

— 7 —   Mr. Romance:  Has a guy ever said this to you: “You make me so happy!”?  If so, check out this article which explains Dietrich von Hildebrand’s thoughts on Union With Our Beloved.  It is not simply about happiness.  It is about Union.  Something tells me Mrs. Alice von Hildebrand felt very loved by her ardent spouse!  Go Dietrich!

“The moment man is more interested in his happiness than in union with his beloved, he stops wanting real union. This would play out as so: Boy meets girl, girl makes boy happy, boy wants to keep girl around for his own happiness. This is selfish in that man does not want “union” with the beloved. He wants “possession” of the beloved. Perhaps this is why some marriages have ended in a divorce.”

God love and bless you!
