What to write about?
The situation at school - just too maddening sometimes. I want to beat my head against the cinder block wall, sometimes. Usually, it is not my students who are the cause of this.
Things at home? Nothing very exciting. I need to try to find school PANTS for my youngest. I am pretty sure we bought some. But not 100%. All those pairs of navy blue shorts and pants just kind of all meld together.
Just routine ordinary-ness. That is probably a good thing. And it will probably be short-lived (the ordinary-ness).
While I'm here with nothing interesting to write about, I thought I'd share some of my daily meditations, devotions, whatever you want to call them.
The most recent addition to the family is a book titled "God Calling". While not necessarily Catholic, my Poor Clare friend gave it to me, and it sat gathering dust on my bookshelf for two years or so. I picked it up again this past summer, and have been amazed at how it is sometimes exactly what I need to hear. You can access it online here.
Each weekday morning, I receive by email a reflection on the day's readings from St. Monica Parish in Indianapolis. They are written by different individuals, and I like seeing how they apply the daily readings to their lives. Sometimes it is a totally different angle than what I heard at Mass.
My third source for something to meditate on comes from Word Among Us. Click on "more" under today's meditation. Sometimes I email the meditations to myself so that I can read it again later.
Just ordinary things. But God can always be found in the ordinary.
