Sunday Celebration!

Sunday Celebration!

This was another one of THOSE weeks.  Very busy, very stressful.  It was starting to pull me down.  I was letting all the “stuff” in my life overwhelm me and I was struggling a bit.  I spent a little time in front of the tablernacle and just let it go. I gave it all to Jesus, and (no big surprise) He was big enough to take it.

The song I chose for today’s Sunday Celebration! is a good reminder to keep your eyes focused on Christ.  May I present “Strangely Dim” by Francesca Battistelli.

I try to teach my children how blessed they are. Sometimes we all need a reminder.

Ah, love! The topic of this week, thanks to Valentine’s Day. My husband and I don’t really get into all of that stuff. I did buy him a Reese’s Peanut Butter Heart. On February 15 he gave me some chocolate. He knows what I like. Chocolate and a 50% off sale!

Mark Hart, the Bible Geek, offers some insight on what love truly is. Take a few minutes to check it out.

The video I am sharing today combines two loves of mine: God and acapella music. “How Great Thou Art” has always been a favorite of mine. Here is Sam Robeson’s version.

Love comes in many forms and is probably one of the most popular topics for songs.  I love the love in this song!  Thank you, Steven Curtis Chapman!

Happy Sunday and share the love!

Sunday Celebration!

January 6 is the Feast of the Epiphany or the Twelfth Day of Christmas. The word “epiphany” means “reveal”. On this day we celebrate when Jesus was revealed to the world as God. In the Roman Catholic Church in the United States we recognize the Feast of the Epiphany as the day of the visitation of the Three Wise Men from the East, the day Jesus was revealed to these leaders of the Gentile nations. Other cultures and faith traditions also celebrate the Baptism of the Lord, the Miracle at the Wedding Feast in Canna, and Nativity of the Lord on this date.

Some people prefer to do their holiday gift-giving at Epiphany, as the Magi gave gifts to Jesus. This is also the day that many Wise Men figurines are finally included in Nativity scenes. Our family doesn’t have any Epiphany traditions to speak of, other than attending Mass. Sometimes we will have a big meal or a special dessert, but it doesn’t take much to encourage us to celebrate with food! This year, however, I would like to do something more. Perhaps we can share some gifts with the local crisis pregnancy center. Maybe our family can share the love of Jesus by helping another baby born in less-than ideal circumstances.

Happy Epiphany!

I’m sorry this is late, but it has been a busy day. This afternoon, two of my kids were in a holiday concert. The high school did a wonderful version of “The Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah. It reminded me of another performance of “The Hallelujah Chorus” by an order of monks who had taken a vow of silence. I was able to find it on Youtube for you to enjoy.

My daughter was a cantor today at church and this is one of the songs they sang. I hope you have a Blessed day!

I think this song about thankfulness is very appropriate as Thanksgiving week comes to an end.
