It's been a heavy couple of weeks, hasn't it? The financial stuff, the campaigns heating up. I put up another goose egg for new business this month (thank God I don't work on commission). The home front has been stressful, too. Celiac stuff - still trying to learn where to shop, what to buy, and how to maintain the budget. All three kids visited at least one doctor this week, for one reason or another (blood work on #2 and #3 to see if they also have celiac, and Bubba's allergy shot today, and appt withthe dietician). Oh, we're going camping next week and we need to figure out what kind of food to bring for that, all gluten free... Also, MommaLlama had an appointment yesterday with the parish DRE to discuss home school options for sacrament prep, and the DRE didn't show up for the appointment. This weekend we have a concert, and have several errands to run. Gotta buy new glasses and contacts before our prescription expires and a new exam is required.

It's been a little overwhelming. But the Lord spoke to me this morning, through Fr. Larry Richards on the Catholic Answers Live podcast. Fr. Larry mentioned how St. Peter was able to walk on water as long as he looked at Jesus. When he looked at the wind and the waves, he became afraid again, and he began to sink.


Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Thanks for posting this. Our family could certainly use the encouragement as well.
