Sunday Snippets

I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks…life is really such a zoo! Today at Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival, RAnn asked us to weigh in on the Liturgy of the Hours: do we use it? Have we ever?

I tried it for a period of time, and I still like it, but morning and evening prayer are a real time commitment and in this stage of life I find myself more in need of stillness–brain and heart stillness–than the structure of the divine office. My favorite part by far is Night Prayer. That formula: “May the Lord grant me a restful night and a peaceful death,” is just so beautiful.

Okay, so here’s what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks:

It’s Down syndrome awareness month, so I’m posting weekly about Julianna. This week it was about Julianna’s Fan Club.

I wrote about the phrase “It Is What It Is.” And then Colleen wrote her own post in response. 🙂

We celebrated my grandmother’s memorial in the last couple of weeks, which inspired A Fry Pan Can Be A Holy Thing.
