Recently a friend reminded me that it has been a while since I’ve updated this blog. Don’t know why exactly,things happen life gets busy,…. but last year/ month had the same amount of business, so I’m not sure why; seasons?
This Lent has been a time to come back to a more regular prayer time. I have been using the Divine Office and thanks to ds leaving the books behind have begun by praying the morning and evening prayers and the office of readings.
Have loved finding connections in this too. No surprise that our school readings from “The Young Josephus” match often my Lenten readings in the morning.
Also I have been revisiting this blog and through it I read a recommendation for a book ” The Contemplative Mom” by Ann Krocker. I am really enjoying this book. It is not that it offers anything new but more that it’s the right time to be reading it, seasons again?

Today: simply being with God; experiencing God by simply being His child is really freeing. Living conscious God is there always. Going about my day practicing the meditation”I am a child of God” , picturing Him holding my hand, walking beside me.Repeating,”my Father in heaven cares what happens to me His child” He is the parent I am His child; a perfect parent-perfect in caring, love and wisdom;always available. Rest in the moment. Not rocket science, not earth shattering or going to change the world but where I am now this season.

It's nice to see an entry from you again. You've been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I love what you wrote about simply being with God. I live by that idea myself.

Peace and Laughter,
