I had a couple of really, really bad days this week, but I am so thankful for my sweet husband who brought me flowers, prayed with me and for me, and sent me to lay down while he prepared dinner. He is so good to me!
It is so true that whatever you ask with the rosary will be granted to you, and I am so thankful for God's faithfulness and for answered prayers.
We had this Crunchy Thai Cashew Quinoa dish for dinner one night, and I highly, highly recommend it! The sauce alone is AMAZING.
I know I've really been slacking on blog posts now that I'm on fieldwork full-time, but hopefully I'll get back in a groove soon!
My NFP post was published in a Catholic magazine, and I have gotten some requests from parishes to reprint the article and distribute it! I never imagined that it would have such an impact, and I am so grateful that our story will continue to encourage other couples to use NFP. God is so great!
Did you see what Obama said about late term abortions?
“The administration strongly opposes H.R. 1797, which would unacceptably restrict women's health and reproductive rights and is an assault on a woman's right to choose,” he said. “This bill is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade and shows contempt for women's health and rights, the role doctors play in their patients' health care decisions, and the Constitution.”
However, here is something more encouraging. Thank the Lord for politicians willing to defend the unborn.
May we, in love, defend the unborn. May we, in humility, confront this national sin, and may we mourn what abortion reveals about the conscience of our nation," Rep. Foxx said, pausing to catch her breath.
Tears began to visibly well up in her eyes as she said, “Madam Speaker, we go to extraordinary lengths to save, not only human beings but even animals, because we value life so much. However, there are many who do not hold the unborn in the same esteem, and that is tragic.”
“There's nothing more important than protecting voiceless, unborn children and their families from the travesty of abortion,” she concluded.
I am so looking forward to this weekend of no plans. It really is everything I need and more!
