“Well done, my good and faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:21)

August 28, 2011

A strange thing has happened to me in the last few days… I think I’ve found my “calling”.. okay, so it’s not grandiose like hearing the call to become a Deacon but, just the same, I do feel as if I’ve found my “mojo”. A few days ago, a Facebook friend (a real life friend […]

Catholicism Made Simple…

August 16, 2011

Catholicism hasn’t come easy to me.  There are many things that I cannot fully grasp.  Long ago I decided to come to my faith as a child & to simply “believe & trust” and at some point I’ll have an “A ha!” moment.  It always happens.  However, these “A ha” moments don’t just happen on […]

Changes… dying to oneself

August 16, 2011

I’m noticing that on this journey that Scott & I are embarking on, we’re “changing”.  I am becoming less judgmental of others (yes, I admit it.. méa culpa, méa culpa) and Scott is becoming more patient (did I really write that?). For instance, I know that my husband doesn’t like to be disturbed when he’s […]

The gift of reading….

August 9, 2011

I LOVE reading!  As a matter of fact, I never let me eyes relax…  whether traveling by car, plane, walking, I just can’t let my eyes “look”… I read everything & quickly “analyze” what my eyes have seen and read.  I even read license plates & always try to see the acronym in them (if […]

We got the mail!!!!

July 27, 2011

You have to know my husband… he has no interest in the mail.  It could stack up on the counter or stay in the mailbox for weeks & he’d never think to check it. However this past week things have been different.  He’s been keeping an eye on traffic down on the road looking for […]

No One Laughs at God….

July 23, 2011

I found this song/video through Patrick Vandapool’s blog, A Catholic UNapologist… you can read the words right under the video… enjoy!   No one laughs at God in a hospital No one laughs at God in a war No one’s laughing at God When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor No one laughs […]

Another woman’s journey…

July 22, 2011

One of my first comments on my first post came from a woman who was struggling with her husband’s calling to the diaconate program.  She & I exchanged several emails following her comment & my reply. In the course of the next few days, we continued to email each other.  I thought that posting her […]

Deacons Are Configured to Christ the Servant

July 22, 2011

April 4th, 2011 Greetings Deacon Tim, I have been doing a lot of thinking & discernment about this “calling” that my husband received.  As a matter of fact, I have decided to “blog” the process & make this venture public via the internet for other future “deacon- wives-in-the-making“. At this point my concern lies in […]

Meeting with the counselor

July 19, 2011

I can’t believe it’s been that long!  June 30th, we met with the counselor to follow up on the psychological assessment. She was very nice and made us immediately feel at ease as we sat in her office.  I’ve never seen a psychiatrist before … the only one I know is good old Dr. Phil […]

Psychological Assessment Day!

June 16, 2011

Tuesday June 14th, Scott & I headed to Knoxville to continue with this next step of the deaconate program.  A friend of ours who’s also applied had advised us to allow plenty of time.  Three hours to be exact!  Unfortunately, Scott & I couldn’t do it at the same time because they only had one […]
