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.

Outside my window...

I am thinking...
about the Pre-Cana weekend we had for engaged couples over the weekend. For the eighth year, Peter and I gave the talk on Marriage as a Sacrament/Making a Christian Home. I'm hoping to have clips of our talk up on Youtube later today.


I am thankful for...
for my 30 years of marriage, for my children and for all of our experiences and there are very few things I would go back and change. I looked at those young couples on Saturday and just knew that some of them didn't have a clue about what they were really getting into - on the other hand maybe neither did I back then...

From the learning rooms...
Noah has learned ALL OF THE PRESIDENTS! And I hope to have that on Youtube as well. His reward will be going out to Pizza Hut for a Book It reward!
We continue with The Screwtape Letters and A Philadelphia Catholic in King James's Court with Gabe in preparation for confirmation. The kids want today off though for Presidents day and because of my busy weekend, I'm inclined to let them.

From the kitchen...
Sweet and sour chicken thighs!

I am wearing...
Black pants and blue long-sleeved top and a hoodie.

I am creating...
more room in my house this week as my oldest is moving out on his own next weekend.

I am going...
the the last of the stuff out of storage of my mother's. Gosh I hate to do that.  It's like she really will be gone when the stuff is all gone, or assimilated into our stuff.

I am reading...

The Divine Office for Dodos: A Step-By-Step Guide to Praying the Liturgy of the Hours.  again. Peter and I have the authentic The Liturgy of the Hours Volume II - Lent and Easter that my mom had. It's part of the Liturgy of the Hours 4 Volume Set.  She didn't appear to have the other three volumes though.  Anyway I think we might like this better than the little Breviary we started with.


I am hoping...
to try out some of my new workouts from The FIRM this week.

I am hearing...
Gabe take a shower.

Around the house...

Quiet.  My nephew Paul has been staying the weekend with us.  He really has turned into a delightful young man and I think he has been having a lot of fun with us.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
finish cleaning my office, hit my goal for my typing and getting a lot of laundry done and losing two pounds!
