I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...
"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Finishing up with Lent...
Finally! The last of the Lenten door decorations is up:
And my Lenten prayer doodle is complete (I worked ahead):
We're almost to Easter - such anticipation. Can you feel it? (I'm definitely ready to sing A******* and spend quality time with my family this weekend.) On a related note, I read a great post over at Catechist's Journey blog --> Knowing How the Story Ends Changes How You Experience the Story - Here, the blogger talks about how we don't have to be/act sad during the events of Holy Week (sober? yes, but sad? no) because we know of Jesus' overcoming of death through His Resurrection on Easter. (He is risen!)
This Holy Week, may you be filled with the anticipation of Easter, realizing fully God's sacrificial love for us.
Unrelated but couldn't help sharing --> Have you seen this article about how a statue of a homeless Jesus is making some people uneasy? Personally, I think it's beautiful - it's a reminder that Jesus is in each one of us, from the greatest (in society's eyes) to the least. Let people talk about it - the conversation needs to happen.
