I've started reading this book and so far, I love it. I haven't gotten very far yet, but just past the part where it explains that God DOES want us to be orderly, to have a schedule. I get that, I believe that. I have a hard time doing it though, on my own. In the book though, they do say it is not going to be easy getting up early, but that it will be worth it. It is written for homeschoolers, but so far, what I've read, could be applied to any state in life. We all could use a schedule. (does that help Nerm?)
I am also reading My Spirit Rejoices the diary of Elisabeth Leseur. Wow, I love this book!!! She is right up there with St Josemaria Escriva, St Francis De Sales and Bishop Sheen. Last night hers is the book I brought with me for inspiration, I guess. (to the chapel) This is the quote that stuck out for me:
"To Bring organization of one's life a strict method, and to deviate from one's rule, once it is established, only for serious reasons of family or charity. To do as well as possible whatever one is doing, not abandoning it for something else without a real need." -Elisabeth Leseur
Now, was that meant for me or what? "To do as well as possible..." Wow! Without a schedule to follow, am I doing as well as possible? Probably not.
We are almost done for the school year. So, I can see how we will need a summer schedule and a school year schedule. Which by the way...in the summer, we love to be outside and not inside on the computer, my blogging might have to slow down a bit. With snow in our MN forecast tonight, (4 inches by morning) not sure I should be worrying about summer yet!
Today we went to noon Mass at our Cathedral in town after music class. It was wonderful and Jedi is planning on counting all his Communions, 1st Communion, 2nd Communion....The priest who usually says the noon Mass, is retired Fr Patrick Riley. He loves children and blesses them and always comments about how he loves their noises...we have lots of that! I thought he was around 70, turns out today is his birthday and he is 90!!! He is very active and think about that, he's probably been a priest for over 60 years!! Amazing! He always gives information on the saint of the day and today was of course, St Mark. We sang the blessing song over him and happy birthday and yes, I cried...I'm such a tearjerker. (thank you Lisa for helping me with the littles, you are the greatest!)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, God bless you all!
