Keep your eyes on Him!

I’m saddened when I hear that someone thinks that I have it all together.  I don’t!  I post my family’s highlights on my blog. It’s easy to do since the pictures speak for themselves and require few words. It’s serves as my family scrapbook and a way to share my joy.  These postings also help me to better appreciate the simple blessings that He has given me. I don’t have the gift for writing and I don’t have a camera on hand to snap me when I lose guard of my tongue, discipline out of frustration, neglect my household duties, or any other one of my many trials --the list of my failings is endless. 

I am a miserable sinner, married to a miserable sinner. Together we are raising miserable sinners.  We strive to become saints. I pray that we keep our eyes on Him!

"To me Jesus is the Life I want to live, the Light I want to reflect, the Way to the Father, the Love I want to express, the JOY I want to share, the Peace I want to sow around me.  Jesus is my everything."

  5. Hi Lena,

    I would disagree mightily with your comment about not having the gift of writing. Your blog is so well organized, informative, encouraging, inspirational, and filled with your knowledge of the Catholic Faith. Plus your family takes such sweet pictures that it adds beauty to your blog. In fact, I feel like an amateur blogger when I read yours! Your writing reflects your devotion to Mary, the Holy Trinity and all of the saints. I've learned much by reading your blog! God Bless!
