Decluttering with a vengence

So…in order to do this missionary thing, we have to go to a place called Covecrest in Tiger, GA for missionary formation, including Chelsea (who will be in the school there), and one dog and one cat.

To be honest, going to Covecrest is one of the perks.  Not because I think it’ll be easy, because I know it won’t. Learning to be a missionary will involve selflessness, getting out of my comfort zone, and actual work.  Among other things.  The thing with Covecrest is that it is one of two places that I can say with absolute Christianity that I can always feel God there.   The other is Saint Simons Island, which is where God reached me even when I wasn’t sure He existed.

I can’t always feel God in my home.  Yes, we always honor and love Him but to tell the truth, some days He might look at the chaos and noise and just throw up His hands.  That is one reason why I am really grateful to be a part of the Catholic faith because I think Jesus and Mary both tend to just roll their sleeves up and dig right into my (momentarily) stony heart or the family situation that is rapidly disintegrating (usually cleaning or kid-negotiations) and send their calmness over the stones.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
