Thoughts on Grace. This meme reminds us to live in the joy of the Lord and focus on the present moment.
It's great to be blogging again after taking most of the summer off. Blogging (and reading faith-filled blogs) brings me great joy! It's also a stress reliever (lol). It's almost impossible to feel down when you are smiling from ear to ear over the posts you read. I read this post over at Imprisoned in my Bones and am still smiling over it. Anne's personality never fails to shine through in her writing!
The weather here is perfect! Autumn is my favorite season and it's almost here! The leaves are just beginning to change and the evenings have been cool and crisp. I can't wait to go apple picking. I'm hoping to take Michaela to a nearby farm after school sometime soon to pick some Cortlands and Macs. There's nothing better than the smell of freshly picked apples!
School has started and I have been enjoying the free time this gives me to attend Mass during the week and to pray more often. Attending Mass without a child interrupting is nice for a change (lol). I feel closer to the Lord when I am not distracted though I realize that this is only a feeling and has no basis in truth. Since the Holy Trinity lives within us, then distractions don't affect this indwelling but simply affect the perception of it. Still, it's much easier when you can give your entire focus to the Lord.
Thank you all for the recent comments welcoming me back after my break! I am enjoying catching up on your blogs!
