Today the readings speak of God’s message being presented to the world through Jesus’ parables and Jeremiah’s 2: 1-2:
The word of the LORD came to me: Go, cry out this message for Jerusalem to hear! I remember the devotion of your youth, how you loved me as a bride, Following me in the wilderness, in a land unsown.
The message of God is still being cried out for all of “Jerusalem” to hear. Many of these messages are coming in the forms of Tweets, Facebook Pages, Instragram uploads, and so on. I compile much of this information for myself, for my own edification, but thought why not share what I have with you?
I am sharing a blog I feel is a wonderful example of how mothering can be a vocation that changes us profoundly, but how that profound change is ultimately making us strong, compassionate, wise; more than we ever thought we would ever be. Here is the blog I wish to share The Passionate Perseverance by Mary Lenaburg
She describes herself as:
“…a Catholic blogger limping along the spiritual road somewhere between Holy Hannah and Snarky Sinner. Married twenty-ﬁve years to her first (and only) blind date, Mary has two adult children, one of whom has significant special needs. When not dealing with the crisis du jour, she aims to create Parisian-inspired meals on a Walmart budget in her 1968 cramped cottage kitchen, can sew a mostly-straight seam, and has recently learned her green thumb is actually black.aAs she seeks joy among the dirty dishes and laundry piles, she lives a vocation that is one-hundred percent God-given, grace-ﬁlled, and exhausting. She thanks God daily for the caffeine and chocolate which keeps her sanity intact and tries to live by the motto, “Be nice to your kids because one day you may need an alibi”. If she’s not snapping photos of her daily life, she’s writing about faith, family, fashion, ﬁction and crazy days here at Passionate Perseverance.”
