Back in the Saddle

To be honest, it's really hard to keep my mind on my faith when the holidays are happening.  This is the first year that I have been focusing on god and my catholic studies, and all was going really great until I went out of town for Christmas.  I still went to church.  It was a weird Catholic church, it was a new one, in the woods in South Carolina...well, my husband summed it up by saying it was like a "baptist church that decided to become Catholic"...if you can picture that.  Anyway, I was focused on enjoying my in-laws and I was really taking a mental break, which is probably not good.  The only way I can spin it in my favor, is to say that I was surrounded by love and enjoyed the giving more than the receiving, truly, and that is what god wants us to do.  I am pretty sure of that.

Tomorrow is new years eve, I am going to try to focus on my great life and be thankful for my many many blessings.  God is love and I have plenty of it.


  1. Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year.

    God bless.

  2. The differences between parishes can be interesting.
