After a lengthy period of reflection, I've decided to take a definitively different path with this blog. While this site has been largely domestic in nature, from here forward I'm going to be focusing primarily on my Catholic faith, reflections on the love of God, stories about the Saints, inspiring quotes, and so forth. That is not the say the domestic aspect will not remain -- I'm sure it will! But it will look quite different than it has thus far.
I've come to the conclusion that my posts will be necessarily brief due to the nature of my daily life, which leaves little time for lengthy discourse. Whether it's due to motherhood or age (or both!), I have difficulty even composing a coherent sentence most days. :) Nevertheless, it is my prayer that what I am able to share will be encouraging and/or thought-provoking for many of you out there that are striving to grow in love and holiness in the Lord. Over the last couple of months I have come to a strong sense that everything else I could possibly offer (recipes, cleaning tips, etc.) is vanity next to that which pertains to Christ Jesus. Useful? Of course. But secondary all the same.
I am going to begin by sharing excerpts and thoughts over the coming days/weeks about an excellent, if not deeply challenging, book I recently read for the second time: Happy Are You Poor: The Simple Life and Spiritual Freedom by Fr. Thomas Dubay.
I hope you will join me. :)
