I am thinking about…
Father’s Day. How to celebrate the fathers in my life and celebrating how awesome a father Sean is already.
A new chair for the baby and desperate need for cleaning! Yikes!
Tomorrow is 30 weeks! 10(ish) weeks to go! She should be around 3 lbs and is just going to keep getting bigger! The little baby inside me is kicking up a storm and I am definitely getting to be large. At least I feel large! I’m becoming more and more mentally and emotionally prepared. I’m am excited and nervous and just all over thankful. I can’t wait to meet her.
The Gospel Lesson is: Follow Me and I shall make you fishers of men.
If God is slow to answer your request and you do not receive what you ask for promptly, do not be grieved, for you are not wiser than God. When this happens to you, it is either because your way of life does not accord with your request, or because the pathways of your heart are at odds with the intention of your prayer. Or it may be because your inner state is too childish by comparison with the magnitude of the things you have asked for. It is not appropriate that great things should fall easily into our hands, otherwise God’s gift will be held in dishonour, because of the ease with which we obtain it. For anything readily obtained is also easily lost, whereas everything which is found with toil is preserved with care. –St. Isaac the Syrian
