Once again the everyday living takes a toll.. the washing of the clothes, the cleaning of the bathroom, the changes of diapers, the washing of the dishes, the sweeping, and it just goes and goes.. and this everyday.. 365 days a year
This is without those moments you have to do errands, teach children to clean up after themselves, you own eating, showers, making of beds..and just seems there is no end to this madness
But I know that we can turn this madness into the most glorious love of all... Love for God. This is one of the main reasons why I love our dear friend.. JoseMaria... He gives us the knowledge and wisdom to use all those moments.. all of those little things.. that no one sees or even cares.. no one that is besides the most important person.. God himself
I know that this might sound nuts.. but the other day as I was cleaning the toilet.. as it was flushing away the water.. I thought that one is for those souls that don't know or feel HIS LOVE. When I was folding the 1000 socks without pairs.. I thought how many are without God..
There are days that you have 10 mins. if you are lucky of some what a peace time to pray or read something spiritual and BAM.. its gone but you have 1440 minutes in a day that you have to offer your love to God for the salvation of souls and the whole world...WOW..that is powerful.. I just hope to recall that every time a child needs this or that.. when you need to do A , B and C just before you forget ! Or stop writing this to go to a needed child or two.
But that's it folks.. That is what God has given me to find my holiness .. my way of life.. Loving HIM in all little things of this day.. to rest those few hours to start over again with 1440 minutes a day to love HIM again
May the Love of Christ bring fourths your holiness!
This is amazing.. One thinks that it has to be a certain person to play music or to be great leader.. that need to have it all.. but its in these Children that God seeks his kingdom and who are extraordinary.. to show them all the Face of God on earth ..
I am always telling my daugther over and over.. nothing in Life is easy.. but God's love is so and with His love for us.. we can do the impossible..
But What I like most about this.. the street player..
Don't you see the Face of Christ?
In 1703 Vivaldi became a priest, soon nicknamed Il Prete Rosso, "The Red Priest", probably because of his red hair. In 1704 he was given a dispensation from celebrating the Holy Mass because of his ill-health (he suffered from asthma), and became a violin teacher at an orphanage for girls called Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. The orphans little after started to gain appreciation and esteem, abroad too; Vivaldi wrote for them most of his concertos, cantate and sacred music. In 1705 the first collection (raccolta) of his works was published. Many others would follow. At the orphanage he covered several different duties, with the only interruption for his many travels, and in 1713 became responsible for the musical activity of the institute. He was indeed a prolific composer.
We praise thee, we bless the, we worship thee, we glorify thee..

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary,
we made our candy rosary, and are making our Rosary book. (I will share pictures once we are done!)
A heart-warming story of true sportsmanship last week turned what might have been a dismal defeat into an extraordinary victory for both teams and everyone who witnessed Matt Ziesel's touchdown run.
Matt, who has Down syndrome, is a freshman at Benton High School in St. Joseph, Mo. Despite his disability he suits up for every football game and cheers on his teammates from the sidelines.
The crowd clapped and cheered their approval, and after the game, Matt Ziesel enthused, "I scored a touchdown! 60 yards, I go for touchdown for us!"
It was a great opportunity for our kids to kind of realize that while, yes, winning is a big deal, there's bigger life lessons out there," McEnaney said.
