And I am sure that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ."

Tagged a loooong time ago by Aunty Esther and earlier today by Mom!! :-)
Sorry for taking so long...

What picture would I use for my holy card, should I make it to sainthood, and of what cause(s) would I want to be patron(ess) of?

I was trying to hide from the camera, and the only way to do it was to play the piano! (I couldn't hide behind Sunny) So while the little ones were playing Mass - in which TJ presided over- Sunny and I banged away at the piano.
It was agreed before this blog started up that no pictures of us would be posted, but Mom said this one's ok.


In any case, all my homeschooling buddies are tagged!

Good, Better, Best

Father Marvin is one of our favorite priests and one of the reasons for this is because he actually spends time with us playing tag!

Yes, he gives good homilies, and his homily today was on the rich young man who kept the commandments but couldn't go farther than that. What he needed to do was well within his reach, but instead he settled for second best.
When one becomes the best he can be, it is not out of pride for what his accomplishments can reach, but for the greater glory of God.

As the saying goes:
"Who I am is God's gift to me.
Who I become is my gift to God."

Feast of the Assumption

Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus in Deo salvatore meo,
quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae.
Ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericordia eius in progenies et progenies
timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordi sui;
deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles;
esurientes implevit bonis
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.

Average Girl?

The BarlowGirl group consists of three sisters who were (and we score again!!) homeschooled! Click here

(found the video on GodTube)

Someone told me that your heart is like a cake for your wedding. If you give a slice to another, what would you have left to present to your true spouse?

Oops, sorry, for posting too many videos.
I think I ate too many oreoes...

Don't be Ordinary! :-)

ok, no more vacation...

I hope every one's summer has been great so far!
It's probably too late to post anything about WYD anymore :-P
So one last post: Don't be ordinary!!! :-D
Get off the safe haven boat of ordinariness...

Haha, that reminds me, who's been watching the olympics?
