I’ve been super busy with a crawling baby, the new responsibility of teaching Religious Ed class, and an upcoming deadline for an exciting project I can’t wait to tell you about! So, I’ve been very inconsistent in my blogging and even in this linkup.
But! I managed to pull myself together this weekend. I hope you enjoy my reflection on today’s Mass readings, and the reflections from my blogging friends!
And, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too.
Sons of Thunda, just putting it all out there.
They’ve got some guts, seriously guys. It’s good to know the 12 Apostles were just human too, right? They had their own strengths and weaknesses and they screwed up royally sometimes.
But they were still Jesus’s beloved friends. That gives me hope.
Featured 5 Takeaways:
Praying for a servant’s heart today!
I love love LOVE how Mary puts a quote on her chalkboard to reflect on all week. An inspiring practice!
I love how Annie calls us to reflect on how we would respond to the challenge: “Can you drink the cup?”
We shouldn’t answer flippantly. We need serious reflection and prayer. We need understanding, and most of all, trust in God.
I just love Amy.
More serving, less complaining. I need that, too.
Nicole had me cracking up, but at the same time saying: it me.
If this isn’t exactly how I pray: “Hi, um, Jesus? I’d like you to do this thing for me which I’m asking and bless it k thanks bye.” Killing me, Nicole!
“I’m a huge follower, a big fan.” This line made me pause. Yep, I do this. I sometimes treat Jesus like my fave celebrity. Sure, I follow him. I study him. Read all those Gospel stories.
But I need to actually follow him. Love him, trust him, listen to him. Take up my cross. and learn to sacrifice.
