— 1 — This Week’s Post: Since I took a break from last week’s Good Friday 7QTs, I am including the posts from the last two weeks. First is a Beautiful Conversion Story where Antoinette shares her conversion story to the Catholic Church. Second is Thank You For Breaking My Heart where I share the connection between The Veil and waiting on God’s plan for your life and vocation.
— 2 — Not Alone Series: This week’s NAS topic was: Marriage Head on over to Jen’s and check out what the girls had to say!
— 4 — Flag Football: Our son is playing flag football again this season. So, my Saturdays will be tied up for a couple of hours with outdoor fun and sun. He has a wonderful coach and the other families are great too. I found myself praising God for leading us to this team that has blessed us so much!
— 5 — Easter Vacation: I have been off from work for most of this week due to our son’s Easter vacation. How is it possible that I could accomplish so little and be so far behind on everything?
— 6 — Dating Advice Guru: I was pleasantly surprised when the self-appointed dating advice guru, Carlos Cavallo told his readers to read my post, Stop Chasing Him. I have no idea how Carlos found my blog or that post but I really appreciate what he had to say:
“It’ll give you a fresh insight and perhaps a boost of hope if you’ve been single for a long time or been through a lot of the wrong kind of guy….That right man for you is out there.”
What I think is interesting is that Carlos appears to approach dating and love from a secular point of view. He has many items for purchase which leads women to believe that they can control the outcome of their love life. He has ‘How To’ videos ranging from How To Get Engaged And Married to How To Get Inside His Head.
Please know that I am not endorsing Carlos! He seems like a very nice guy who wants to help women. But our beliefs about love, attraction, dating and marriage seem so far apart! However, isn’t it interesting that he would direct his clients to this Stop Chasing Him post which promotes Chastity and the concept of The Veil? Kind of neat to me!
— 7 — Saint Pope John Paul II: Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII will become canonized Saints this Sunday April 27th. Everyone knows how much I love Pope John Paul II so this will be a wonderful event to witness!
God love and bless you!
