— 1 — This Week’s Post: Dating Non-Strategically There is a difference between helping things along and trying to control the outcome. Respond to him in a way that is true to who you are and what you need. Then, trust in the Lord.
“in addition to God’s will, it takes the cooperation of two knuckleheads to make a marriage vocation. The only control you have is over what you do. It all requires a great deal of trust and dependence on the Lord.”
— 2 — Not Alone Series: This week’s NAS topic was: Favorite Saints! The girls shared their favorite Saint related to marriage and chastity and how s/he helped them during their time of singleness. I wrote about my fave Saint in a guest post. Notice that I don’t just have one! Great job, NAS girls!
— 7 — Jen Fulwiler Tweeted Me Back: I feel like a geeky fan for doing this, but I must. Oh, darn. Twitter will not connect to WordPress. Okay, you will have to just trust me that she tweeted back to me. She has this one part of the book where she describes her hyper-concern for her newborn baby. She marked a spot on the floor to let people know that they could not take the baby past that line for fear that somehow the baby would launch himself over the balcony. I told Jen in my tweet that I was able to totally relate to this neurotic first time Mom story. When we first had our son, I would ask Gregg every night if he locked the door. I had this exaggerated fear that someone would come in our house and steal him. Thankfully, I was able to relax and now I realize that prayer for peace is the only answer to this exaggerated fear. The “peace that surpasses all understanding.” Phil 4:7

Glad to hear you are enjoying SOTG, too! I have been reading it the past week, and there are definitely parts of the book that make me chuckle out loud or think, “Dang, Jen knows how to write!” And that is so neat she tweeted back at you!!! 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!
