"The whole trouble is that -- literally -- we do not know what is good for us; and what makes the trouble still worse is that we think we do. We have our own plans for our happiness, and too often we merely regard God as somebody who will help us to accomplish them. The true state of affairs is just the opposite. God has His plans for our happiness, and He is waiting for us to help Him to accomplish them. And let us be quite clear about it: We cannot improve on God's plans." This Tremendous Lover, M. Eugene Boylan, O.C.R.

To mark the moment...

Z is currently studying to be a Deacon in our Church. His cassock arrived last week and yesterday was the first Sunday Liturgy that he wore it. Afterwards, we went out to lunch as a family, as always. Put simply, I wanted to mark this moment. To thank God for this blessing, and to tell you how it felt.

First day out with my husband wearing a cassock...

aware of our surroundings, our actions, other's perception of us, the kids' behavior. Did we clean our table nice enough? Did we use our good manners? Did others have questions?

But moreover, JOY. It fits. He fits.

God's will be done, Amen.
