Seven Quickies: Sacrament Edition

I am writing this Quick Takes a day early … no, two days early!  But my thanks to Jen, who might not even see this, since I’m going to be WAY to busy to actually post the link at her place!  LOL! Here goes!   It’s here!  My baby girl is going to receive her…

Update

Thank you to everyone who prayed for Travel Man’s grandmother.  She came through surgery fine, and is on her way home today for her six to seven week recovery there.  She is back on solid food again (after a few days with an NG tube), and, God willing, she’ll make a complete recovery. Thank you…

NBA

Never, ever have I wished so badly that an NBA player gets leveled.  It’s so very un-Christian of me.   And yet, when I see Rondo, I just want someone to just TAKE. HIM. OUT. Want to flop and fake a foul while playing dirty against us?  Let me show you a REAL foul. See?…

To What Degree?

When I tell people I homeschool, most are supportive, even if their reaction includes a “I could never!” comment.  Occasionally, though, someone questions that I am sheltering my girls.  My reaction these days to that rare instance is, “You bet your bippy!  It’s my job to shelter them!” I do shelter them, unapologetically, from things…

"That Was a Bit Like the Spanish Inquisition!"

At the end of Mass yesterday, our pastor was making announcements, and said, “July 1, you will be having a new pastor.  Father K. will be coming here from the Tidewater area, and I will be going to Parish X in this area.  We will also begin clustering at that time, with four priests pastoring…
