Thoughts on Grace. Sabbath moments are moments that we let go, let God, and live in the present moment.
School is out for the year and I've been trying to spend a lot of extra time with Michaela so I haven't been posting as often. This week we had a great time! I took her to the park, for walks, scootering, and swimming. We also started praying the family rosary together in the evenings again. We attempted this when she was younger but she couldn't sit still through 5 decades so we didn't push the issue because we didn't want to give her a dislike for the rosary. Instead, we would hear her prayers in her bedroom before she went to sleep at night and then do the rosary ourselves. Now that she is older we invited her to do the rosary with us again and she said yes. She has done very well and even leads it on some nights!
I've been trying to work out a summer schedule for Michaela and I while Randy's at work. When I was ill it was difficult to have a regular schedule, we often had to just "wing it" depending on how I felt each day. Now that I have more energy I'm trying to form a routine for cleaning, playing, and my other daily duties. Wish me luck! I'm trying to give the reigns of my family life to Jesus and praying for the grace to understand his will in this area. Illness can form some negative patterns in a family and the adjustment to a new way of living can be difficult. Sounds weird, I know, but it's true :)
