End of Summer

Every summer I can remember has gone quickly for me, but I think this has to be one of the quickest. The sheer number of things that went on is, to tell the truth, rather dizzying!

I have missed my blog. Thank you to you kind folks that have said you missed me, too. I am striving for virtuous balance in my life; the "holy blend" of prayer, apostolic work, study, recreation, and rest. It amazes me how precious the time is now that one takes for granted as a carefree child.
Lord willing, I will try to work regular posting back into my routine. I have plenty to share from the past few months!

For now, I will leave you with a wonderful quote I just found from St. Augustine, whose feast day is coming up. It sums up a frequent theme of my reflection as of late:

"My love for you, Lord, is not an uncertain feeling, but a matter of concious certainty. With your word you pierced my heart, and I loved you. But heaven and earth and everything in them on all sides tell me to love you."

Thank you for sharing that quote. It's beautiful.

It's so good to 'see' you again! I sympathize with you in your 'quest.' I recently got back from vacation, and I too spent it trying to find some sort of holy order for my life. I particularly needed to pray about and evaluate A Maiden's Wreath, so I could rededicate myself to that.

But just in general I was in need of focusing myself, putting God at the front, and figuring out what I needed to do from there.

Always praying for you! God bless and keep you!
