1 - I like David Crowder's voice. A little raspy. And then I like even more that it comes out of this thin little man with ridiculous hair. There's been some buzz about DCB's newest album, mostly because the Protestant band's latest album is called Give Us Rest (A Requiem Mass in C - The Happiest of All Keys). I don't know why people are so upset about them calling C the happiest of keys...
Oh, or maybe because people are afraid he's going the way Rich Mullens and Audrey Assad went - to Rome. Shoot.
2 - Do you listen to Relevant Radio? Usually I don't - especially in the mornings. But when I get a tip on a good show I like to dig around in the archives. Today's Morning Air is one show I dug around for. The second hour features Msgr Deptula from my Diocese talking about Archbishop Sheen. The third hour features Kate Wicker talking about glorifying God with our bodies. She also mentions the Behold Conference several times which is cool. You can find the links here.
3 - Speaking again of the Behold Conference - let me just say it's amazing all the things that are coming together so wonderfully. God's Hand is definitely guiding all of us through this process and it's such a blessing to be a part of it. I sincerely hope you can join us.
4 - This picture is a little old but I wanted to share it with you. Usually St. Nick only comes to our house on his feast day but this year, well, you can read for yourself:
5 - In a related "parenting success" story, James was wearing some pajamas that were a little too long. As he walked around the living room Lydia, who is 3 and 1/2, started singing, "Pants on the Ground." I asked; she learned the song from me. So proud. *tear*
6 - Last night I slept for ten hours, having gone to bed at 8:30pm. By 9:30am I was so tired I had to lay down. I napped this afternoon. And I'm still super tired. I also have a cough. Ugh.
7 - Lastly, I want to warmly welcome to the world Lucy Anne, who was born to our friends Michael and Susan on Wednesday and Elijah Nathan, born to our friends Margaret and Nathan. I am so happy for our wonderful friends who have all just entered the lovely, crazy, beautiful world of parenthood! Please join me in thanking God for Lucy and Elijah.
