You too, Sofia! (and all of you!)


I just finished my daily rosary, which is my Lenten resolution. The rosary is a prayer that I really have to work at. I've decided for the first few weeks to work on the discipline, and then explore tools for making the most of the meditation. I have such a hard time "being still" with God.

Thanks, Sofia!

How is Michael doing? Have you gotten any word on how long he will be helping out?

Polly, "being still with God" is one of my biggest struggles too!! I totally sympathize. I can't seem to stop my mind from wandering when I try to do the deeper, or meditative prayer.

Jen, Michael came home a few weeks ago. He was there a little over 2 weeks. It was a hard trip for him. He dealt with a lot of really, really tragic situations, but he's glad he went. . . Thanks for asking! :)
