This week's homily really spoke to me. Whether it seems like it or not, I always seem to have an attitude towards God when it comes to our growing family, at least at first. 

"You want me to do what? Fly across the world and do what?"

"You want me to give birth and then fly across the world and do what?"

"You just gave me another pregnancy 9 months after giving birth to another one?"

And now...

"I just brought a sweet baby home from Ukraine, what do you mean I'm pregnant???" 

Yes, you read that right, #8 is on his or her way. And I've had an attitude about it, as usual. 

And then Sunday, the words were spoken by our amazing priest, "just when you think you've given all you possibly can, God asks you to give more."

Oh, smack. Right across the face. Right into my heart. God knew what I needed to hear. 

My patience level, our finances, our hectic lifestyle, all need an overhaul, and obviously God knows I need extreme amounts of sanctifying. 

I am blessed, but we could use your prayers as our family grows once more. 



  1. Congratulations on your newest blessing! Prayers for all!

  2. Hooray!! More adult children surrounding you someday and taking care of you when the government is broke and can't help you! Ha ha, see, I love the practicality of big families! And the eternal souls made for heaven and all....
