MSB {35}:  Soil and the Thorns of Suffering

This blurry-ish picture is courtesy of Cee for My Sunday Best.  I’m wearing my favorite Lularoe Carly. And here’s the rest of the crew: That about sums it up.     Every week, I go into Mass expecting to get a little note from God.  (The readings used by the Catholic Church are pre-set.  The Catholics […]

MSB {34}:  In or Out?  The Big Mass Question

,

  I got a new dress for My Sunday Best this week!  Lands’ End offers new prints and colors of their fit and flare dress every year, but I refuse to pay full price.  I watch their website like a hawk, waiting to add a new dress to my rotation if they offer the perfect storm […]

Of Shots, Truth, and Worry

, ,

    The other night, David gave Cee her Methotrexate shot right before bed.  Methotrexate is a chemotherapy drug that is used for SJIA because it shuts down the immune system.  Cee’s immune system is superhuman; it’s so powerful that it even attacks things that aren’t germs.  Like her joints.   Cee’s Methotrexate often makes […]

MSB {31}: Skydiving with the Holy Spirit

,

Okay.  Quick aside since with crazy crazy life life I’m pretty much only able to write once a week. I met Kirby from the Internet! The delightful Kirby blogs over at Under Thy Roof about faith, mothering, and ballet.  And it turns out she’s a real person! We both attended a homeschool conference in Minnesota this […]

MSB {28}:  On Sheep and Over Zealous Picking

  If you’ve been following My Sunday Best for awhile, you know that occasionally I get a little cheat-sy.  I’m supposed to post a picture of what I wore to Mass.  Well, what I wore this week was pretty much the same as last time. So I offer the substitute picture of me and Bea […]

The Messiness of Mary's Motherhood

,

  I’m over at Everyday Ediths, writing about the theme this month– Motherhood. Jesus offers Mary to us, not only as a model and intercessor, but as someone who will hold our face in her hands and wipe our tears when life doesn’t make sense. When we can’t grasp how things can possibly get better. […]

MSB {27}: Shuffling back to Jerusalem

, ,

Moe insisted he wanted to be in the picture with me this week, but he couldn’t be troubled to sit still or pose.  So here’s the result for My Sunday Best: Sweater, shirt, shoes:  Lands’ End Skirt:  Lularoe Necklace:  Kohl’s superclearance   Now, onto Mass thoughts.  I’ve heard the Emmaus Road reading lots of times […]

MSB {26}:  Pizza Edition!

We are in Cincinnati.  Well.  A suburb of Cincinnati.  Same difference.  David and Cee are down at the pool, and I have some quiet time to write and be a part of My Sunday Best.  It’s been so long since I’ve had the time to participate.  I miss blogging about books and Sunday antics and […]

Anxiety, Faith, and the Outcome Spectrum Method

,

I have a weird approach to life’s obstacles.  I think about the best thing that could happen in any situation, and then also the worst case scenario.  Somehow it’s comforting to know that however things actually unfold, it will be somewhere on the spectrum of things I’ve already considered.  Maybe I could call it the Outcome […]
