A Mary Garden

I went outside this morning to find my statue of Mary missing from our front garden. It was a mother’s day gift from my girls and was blessed. I suppose I became attached to it; not seeing it in the garden was rather a shock. My girls used to pick flowers for her throughout the summer and earlier this May they did a May Crowning. Please say a prayer for whoever stole it and for its return.

St Anthony, restorer of lost things, pray for us!Image may contain: 1 person, standing, flower, plant, tree and outdoor

 

 

 

How’s Your House Arrest Going?

Husband: Let’s go for a walk.

Me: I don’t want to, its May and it’s snowing!

Husband: If it were Jan, you would say, “what a sunny day let’s go for a walk. ”

We go for a walk.

He was right of course, a walk is what I needed. It was good to get out and clear my head. Since house arrest has started I’ve been going down arguably too many rabbit holes: operation Paperclip, MK ultra, Monarch, former Illuminati testimonies, pizzagate, pedogate,  adrenochrome. All of it is horrific but should not disturb our peace.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  Ephesians 6:12

Sexual Morality Matters

Here’s a good article on why sexual morality matters. It’s definitely worth reading in full  here’s an excerpt:

“If total sexual freedom was embraced by a culture, that culture collapsed within three generations to the lowest state of flourishing — which Unwin describes as “inert” and at a “dead level of conception” and is characterized by people who have little interest in much else other than their own wants and needs. At this level, the culture is usually conquered or taken over by another culture with greater social energy.
Time lag: If there is a change in sexual constraints, either increased or decreased restraints, the full effect of that change is not realized until the third generation.”

 

A Housewife’s Work

We have been so busy lately with home projects and the daily work involved in running a home. It seems that once your family size hits 7 the workload somehow increases twofold overnight.  Has anyone else felt this? It didn’t feel like the workload was much different from 1 to 2 children, 2 to 3 or even 3 to 4 but somehow 4 to 5 has been an adjustment.

Today as I was trying to keep up with the dishes, the laundry and the meals this quote came to mind, and so I dug it up and share it here in case you too are feeling like Sisyphus take heart!

“I think I can understand that feeling about a housewife’s work being like that of Sisyphus (who was the stone rolling gentleman). But it is surely in reality the most important work in the world. What do ships, railways, miners, cars, government etc exist for except that people may be fed, warmed, and safe in their own homes? As Dr. Johnson said, “To be happy at home is the end of all human endeavour”. (1st to be happy to prepare for being happy in our own real home hereafter: 2nd in the meantime to be happy in our houses.) We wage war in order to have peace, we work in order to have leisure, we produce food in order to eat it. So your job is the one for which all others exist…”
