Feast Day of St. Therese of Lisieux

Gospel reading today:
"The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harves." Luke 10:2

I can't write much this morning because I have a cranky baby.....she has had me up since 4:00am. This will be a long day no doubt....Lord give me strength.

Today is the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux. I regret to tell you I do not know much about her and hope to learn more when I get more time to read; however, she is the saint of little ways. I hear her story is life changing. What I do know is that she embraced life with a simple heart. So today, let's think of St. Therese and embrace our day with simplicity.... a much needed way in the hectic world we live in. Try to take joy in the little things today....the smell of fall, the babble of your baby, the motor sound your toddler makes as he drives his truck around, colorful mums on your front porch, a good cup of strong coffee or a bold glass of red wine, those precious toddler giggles, a smooch from your husband, a good old song on the radio......the little things in life we are able to embrace in our simple living while mothering our children and being homemakers. We don't have the noise of the world pounding in on us while we embrace the beauty that surrounds us.

Gotta go rescue my crying baby......I guess that is beautiful too! Have a blessed Thursday and asked St. Therese to pray for you to live a more simple life. The more simple we live the more we can see God and his great work in us!

P.S. This is the Year of the Priest.....pray for God to send Laborers to our Catholic Faith....."the harvest is abundant but the laborers are few". We need Priests! I am praying my son will be a priest!

I was asked how I was going to do a fieldtrip with Queen V.. I laughed and told the mamas, "I have a pony tail holder.... it's all good" Rain or shine I knew it was important for my little one to know I took interest in HER day... it was worth every drop of rain that made me have crazy RosanRosanaDana hair! lol!
yep, even a crying baby is a beautiful thing.. she cried and you answered.. that is the best ever to answer a baby who needs your help and guidance :)
