I have a feeling ...

that I am going to be asked to join the RCIA team for September. I am unsure how I feel about it though. No, it hasn't happened yet, but I am putting two and two together. Father keeps asking me if I am going to come to RCIA (I used to go regularly before X-mas) And he told me today that he wants to 'talk' to me about stuff and me joining/helping out (can't remember the word he used). We are loosing our Pastoral Assistant this summer and she was the leader of the RCIA. I am WAY under qualified for the Pastoral Assistant, so I know it has nothing to do with that! *lol* I also feel under qualified for the RCIA team too. Heck, I still forget to genuflect! (I have been Catholic for 3 years)

I guess my worry is far to premature as he hasn't said anything yet, but still... I would be honored regardless!

Actually if you read the "Another one bites the dust" thread, I posted a link about MOMS and there were others that posted about it as well. It's the Ministry Of Mothers Sharing, an ecumenical spiritual journey spanning about 9 weeks that focuses on a specific aspect of motherhood each week. You learn that yes, there is spirituality in dirty laundry, dishes and diapers and the day-to-day efforts of motherhood. One of the weeks spends time focusing on taking care of yourself as a woman.

Thanks, you are very sweet to 'remind' me.

Question for you, what is M.O.M.S.?? I am not familiar with it. A few ladies are trying to get a 'moms' group going through Vocations but I think they are having a hard time getting everything organized. I say that b/c we haven't had our 2nd meeting yet and it has been over a month! *grin*

Well if it is the case, just remember, God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called! I was not equipped to be a facilitator for the M.O.M.S. journey this past fall, but I got the training in the nick of time to facilitate and in the process I realized that I am way more capable than I have ever given myself credit for being.
Don't listen to the nagging voices that say "you can't do it". Instead, listen for the quiet whispers that say "you are needed here". THOSE are the sounds in your heart and head that you heed. Not the ones of self-doubt and questioning. And speaking from experience, the closer you get to discerning your next calling, the more sand you'll find getting thrown in your path. The devil likes to hide the sidewalk so you lose your way.
