Thoughts from my blogging friends:

At Mass tonight, the deacon’s homily was given in the midst of general “little kid chaos.” There was crying, there were too-loud whispers, there was hopping from pew to kneeler to pew again. . . . As the deacon pointed out we are all blessed with gifts, I surveyed the pew full of littles. And, I smiled – both literally, and in my heart. . . . We are all called to use the gifts God gives us – some of us will write, some will sing, some will draw, some will create masterpieces, some will create groundbreaking technology, and someday, perhaps someone will create the cure for cancer or other insidious diseases. Yet, many of us also waste our gifts. Our challenge is to discover our gifts – to recognize them, and then *do* something with them! As the deacon pointed out, “Take our gifts and go out and *live* our Catholic Christian Faith, using our God-given gifts!” . . . Amidst the little kids sitting in the pew tonight, I realized as a mother, not only am I called to use my gifts for my vocation as wife and avocation of motherhood, but I am also charged with the task to recognize my children’s gifts. And, to draw those gifts out of them. To encourage them to use their gifts. My job is to foster those gifts in them, and when the time is right, to remind them to spread their wings and fly. . . . With God, all things are possible. Even tall orders! Happy Feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary!! . . . #bctgp #mysundaybest w/ @rosiehill425 #mymasstakeaway w/ @tojesussincerely #sundaybestsociety w/ @sundaybestsociety #momlife #catholicblogger #christianblogger #inspiration #catholicmom #gifts
