7 Quick Takes Friday, Volume 29

This was one of those weeks I was grateful to work from home. I spent most of Sunday on the beach and took my daily lunch breaks in the sand and sun.



At 3pm, the sun showed itself in a patch on the back porch just big enough for me and my wi-fi connected computer.


Oh yeah, and the sun set in our backyard. Life is good.

These kids that I'm "chaperoning" are so impressive. Most of them are a part of the Catholic student group at school.

A group went to daily Mass everyday and because of the thirty-minute drive time, this meant they had to leave at 8:30am during their beach week. We prayed meal time prayers and the rosary together at night. They were respectful with each other and I witnessed zero drama.

Impressive.

Impressive at eating peanut butter, as well.

  
This picture doesn't do the size justice.

Someone arrived on my blog this week searching: "parishioner grab Eucharist from non catholic and puts it into her own mouth."

How do YOU feel about that?

Homeboy McCoy is gone. All that is left of him is what you have in your hearts, minds, and Google Reader.

John 19:30 : "It is finished."
At around 2:00 PM today, the Admissions Committee met and discussed my entry into the Order.  At a little after 3:00 PM, I got the call with their decision.

I am going to become a postulant this August.

Thank you for accompanying me on this leg of my journey, and thank you for all your prayers.  But now, the rest of it must be completed between God and me.

Farewell.  I'll miss you guys.

As Sister Lisa said, "this is only the beginning."

I've made 12 cups of coffee everyday down here, I drank 6 of them, and they have yet to finish a pot.

Are these kids superhero aliens?

1: Gotta love the beach!

2: Definitely different from when I was a youth!

3: Waitaminnit ... no Skippy Super-Chunk?!

4: How did she know the person was non-Catholic? Not that I don't think she did right — I think of the scene in The Cardinal where they eat the reserved Hosts so the Nazi mob can't desecrate them — but how did she know?

5: Kudos to Homeboy, and prayers for happiness and peace in his profession.

6: They have been uncorrupted by java. Enjoy their pure, unspoiled state.

7: Wilco!

I'm looking forward to reading those posts on 'Mary, Our Guide'. I wanted to join in again this week, but for the life of me, I couldn't find enough material to write about Mary again. We really don't have much of a relationship.

Not sure how I feel about the person grabbing the Eucharist from a non-Catholic...I think I have mixed feelings on that :-/

It doesn't seem like a very charitable thing to do...yet I can understand someone not wanting Jesus to be desecrated...

What I want to know is how those search terms found your blog... what have you been writing about?!?!

Enjoy the beach! It looks gorgeous :)
