Last week was staycation thus the blogging silence, but it was a heavy-hearted one with all the turmoil in our country. I found this to be a good reminder that even when you’re at a loss for words and just hold your baby and quietly pray for peace, it’s okay to delight in┬áthe slobbery kisses he plants all over your face.

Wednesday’s Words

handlettered psalm 34

From today’s Mass readings on this feast of Saints Peter and Paul. Witnessing the fragility of life particularly through the lens of motherhood easily makes me fearful of death. But that’s why we have the stories of the martyrs who teach us by their example to look to Him always that we may one day be together in eternity radiant with joy.

Painting: Cloud Study, John Constable, 1822
