Outside my window... azure skies.... it is actually nice and warm, not too hot at all :D

I am thinking... of how I need to improve my relationship with God, it has been slacking... and about my trip home for the wedding and how i'm going to collect my dress and go to oriental plaza and not miss my bus.. mmm

I am thankful for...books! just got one on Papa Ben from cameron yesterday looks to be an interesting read.

From the kitchen... healthy food, i have to get healthy again

I am wearing... balck and purple mottled collar shirt black pencil skirt, black heels

I am creating... nothing... well except for an assigment that is on hold and really should be worked on!

I am going... home! to zim! for a wedding! on Wednesday! can't wait... well i could wait forever for that bus trip but otherwise lifes good!

I am reading... The rise of Benedict XVI by John L Allen, just started on the preface and so far so good.

I am hoping... that our contract phones are approved, that our credit rating goes up so we can get a loan for a car, and that plans to go home go smoothly ... no change there

I am hearing... Maroon 5, The sun

Around the house... nix

One of my favourite things... quiz.. we had a quiz night last Friday at church including bingo and all... was rather good if I should say so.

A few plans for the rest of the week... doing my assignments and finishing packing and shopping for the trip home and going home and getting my hair and nails done and... AAAARRRGGGGHHH there ain't enough hours in the day!

Here is picture thought I am sharing... did i mention how much i hate travelling on taxi's? yes hate! i really would not mind if the taxi industry slowly fizzled out, not saying that i want the owners to suffer but as it stands right now it boarders on mafia!!!!

the new me?

I don't know how much of this is really new, I mean this is stuff that has always been in me but is being shown more expressly. I have always wanted to write but this is becoming more of a insistent longing in my heart, I've always wanted to follow the churches precepts but it has become more clear and somewhat easier of late...case in point on modesty... I no longer wear clothes willy nilly, I first ask myself is it appropriate, modest, will it lead another to sin etc. and although I have slacked a bit I want to veil in church at least and this quote from "The Mystery of Femininity" (from Women and the Priesthood, p. 65) by Alice von Hildebrand:

". . .It is not by accident that women traditionally wore a veil, and that, up to Vatican II, they wore veils in Catholic churches. This custom was deeply symbolic, and alas this symbolism is now lost. Under the influence of feminism, many Catholics were led to believe that veiling indicated some sort of inferiority, and for this reason it was abolished. This interpretation rests on a misunderstanding. Far from indicating inferiority, the veil points to sacredness. While we do cover what is ugly or decaying, we also veil what is sacred, mysterious and sublime. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he covered his face to hide the glow that was apparent because God had deigned to speak with him: Moses' body reflected the depth and mystery of his experience. Every woman caries within herself a secret most sacred, mysterious and sublime. This secret is life. . . .In the mystery of the female body, human life finds its beginning . . .There God creates a new soul which is exclusively his work, and in which neither father nor mother has a part. . . .at that very moment a closeness exists between divine action and the female body which marks the latter as sacred ground..."

This just reiterates what I have been learning from Theology of the body and NFP, that i am sacred, holy and my femininity sets me apart and is holy and sacred, all fro God's glory!
I love discovering writing that seems to get to the core of my own longings and desires. It is as if I am meeting a long lost favourite family member with whom i shared childhood secrets and they are reminding me of them. It tells me I am not alone in life's journey and each day is a day to discover more kin in spirit! how awesome is that!

St. Raymond Nonnatus
Feastday: August 31

Raymond was born at Portella, Catalonia, Spain. He was delivered by caesarean operation when his mother died in childbirth. Hence his name non natus (not born). He joined the Mercedarians under St. Peter Nolasco at Barcelona. He succeeded Peter as chief ransomer and went to Algeria to ransom slaves. He remained as hostage for several slaves when his money ran out and was sentenced to be impaled when the governor learned that he had converted several Mohammedans. He escaped the death sentence because of the ransom he would bring, but was forced to run the gauntlet. He was then tortured for continuing his evangelizing activities but was ransomed eight months later by Peter Nolasco. On his return to Barcelona in 1239, he was appointed Cardinal by Pope Gregory IX, but died at Cardona a short distance from Barcelona the next year while on the way to Rome. He was canonized in 1657. He is the patron saint of expectant mothers and midwives because of the nature of his own birth. Although his mother died in labor, Raymond miraculously survived the ordeal. His feast day is August 31. (got from http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=314 )
