a few thoughts on Adoration

I hadn't been for awhile, so tonight I took the kids to church for Adoration. If you've been procrastinating like me, stop! If you've never been...go! It's great for the soul. Silence is golden, and allows us that time to just listen, pray, thank, praise, ask, or whatever it is that we need to do. Just being in His presence is enough. Oh, and the bonus...while I'm certain my kids didn't get through many prayers (as evidenced by their tugging at my shirt asking "Is it time to go yet?") I do love that they get to see a different, more peaceful side of their mom, and maybe it will make them want to find that peace some day too. Monkey see, monkey do.
Peace.

(oh, and pray for our priests while your there, if you think of it.)

I just love reading your blog. I "only" have 5 kids, but so much of what you write about hits home with me. It is always heart warming to know someone else is dealing with much of the same and us and you are doing so wonderfully! (even on the hard, frustrating, difficult days ;-) )
