My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

My body is having a mutiny!

Everytime I am under an unusual amount of stress, my body lets me know about it. It started back in the 4th grade when I just was NOT getting long division. Night after night I worked problems with my grandma until we were both exhausted and yet I still wasn't confident that I understood it completely. The day before a math test I would be nauseous and my stomach would hurt.

Other gut wrenching memories include my first day of Junior High as the new kid, going on job interviews, moving to a new city etc. Heck, on my wedding day my neck froze solid and I could not move from side to side because of the pain!

Now people don't know this about me by just looking at me. In fact I have had many people mention how calm I am in the face of stress and in a crisis and it's true, I am. I remain very level headed and am able to act calmly- but I guarantee when it is all over I will have a stomach ache that will send me to the bathroom and then to bed!

I am having such a situation now! Last week my husband went to a convention for a few days and I was sorta cool with that. It doubles my work load but I was relatively prepared and didn't think I minded until I woke up the morning he was leaving and my stomach reminded me otherwise. I made it through the week OK and he came back Saturday so I should be fine right? well apparently wrong! and now I think I know why.

This is the weekend my husband and I have to give the Spirituality Talk for our parish Pre-Cana Day. We've been working on it and I got a lot of help from Rex. I think we're going to be OK, but WOW the week I am having until Saturday comes!!

So maybe if ya'll wouldn't mind a few prayers that this aching body of mine could just RELAX until then, I would greatly appreciate it!
