Sabbath Moments

Sabbath Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace. These are the moments we "let go and let God" and live in the present moment. Here are some of my special moments:

~ Going to morning Mass after I drop Michaela off at the bus stop. I really look forward to this. Praying the Rosary before Mass helps me to prepare my heart for Communion.

~ Our puppy is so funny! His antics keep us in stitches! Today we gave him a bath and he ran like a maniac through the house afterward. He's lovable, sweet natured, and full of energy. Very difficult to train though. He still thinks that the world is one giant chew toy...and bathroom. Oh well, there's a plus to all this - no doubt the folks who put out disinfecting wipes love me. And I love them too, of course. What else kills 99.99% of germs?

~ Beautiful "indian summer" weather this week. Wow!

~ I think my battle against sloth is going pretty well. This next week I am tackling gluttony! Wish me luck. Goodbye choco-caramel-vanilla swirl ice cream with heaping chunks of fudge. Sigh. Who invents these things anyway?


  1. Your posts make me smile. Have a good weekend.

  2. I can just see that puppy dashing about. When our Francie does that I call her "looney tunes" because she is so crazy at those times.

    Gluttony is a big problem for me. I can't keep sweets in the house or I gobble them up much too fast. A lack of self-control, of course. I'm looking forward to reading your posts on this topic. Why did God have to make sugar?

  3. Love your list.
    Dogs are such fun. They make us feel like children and lower our blood pressure!
    You don't have to say goodbye to your ice cream treat. Everything in moderation! (I wish I could do that!)
    Morning Mass is such a blessing. What a wonderful way to start the day!
    Thanks for joining me!

  4. Thanks, Kathleen! I hope that you have a great weekend too!

  5. Barb,
    I smiled at your "looney tunes" comment regarding Francie :) Dogs are so funny! "Looney tunes" describes the puppy well too!

    I have a sweet tooth too! I guess that's pretty obvious, huh? Lol!

  6. Colleen,
    I have no intention of giving up my ice cream for! Just a short break from it!

    Dogs are wonderful! I have always been partial to dogs and always will be. I especially enjoy their antics as puppies! Too funny!

  7. Victor,
    I'll drink to it with you ;)

  8. (smile)

    Did you ever wonder what those .01% of germs are that aren't killed?

  9. Michael,
    Lol!! Yes, I definitely have wondered this!

  10. Your poopy puppy requires the touch of a great mummie in you. For your rambunctious puppy, acting like a "free" kid at heart. Messing mummies things..... thank goodness for this day and age of Wipes. Blessings to you Mary and your family.

  11. Funny, JBR! It is kind of like having a baby in the house and wipes make things MUCH easier. May God bless you too, my friend :)

  12. Oh my gosh...I'd be a "gonner" if that ice cream were in my freezer!


  13. Judy,
    Lol! I'm not sure they actually make such a thing but there ARE some pretty crazy ice creams out there!
