Sunday Snippets

Time to link up with the Sunday Snippets community at RAnn’s This, That & The Other Thing. This week’s question: “What religious artifacts (statues, pictures, icons, altars, etc) would I find in your home if I stopped in for a visit?”

We have a cross on the living room wall, along with palm branches made by my great-grandfather. In the kitchen we have a statue of St. Michael the Archangel, a Madonna of the Streets and a few other “artifacts” on shelves. We all have crucifixes in our bedrooms. But mostly people know we’re Catholic because that’s what we’re always doing–writing, teaching NFP, heading to church to lead the choir, and of course because we have one kid in public school and one in Catholic, there’s always an explanation to be made.

My posts this week:

First of all, my Christmas collection for flute & piano is out!

Nov. 2013 204I’m very happy with this collection. We were playing through the proofs to check for errors and I got lost in it. I got all excited, shook my head and said, “Man, this is good stuff. Who wrote this? Oh right. I did! Wow!”

Two posts to share this week: Sibling Love–about typically-developing and developmentally-delayed siblings; and

Maybe Preaching To The Choir Isn’t Always Such A Bad Thing.
