I don't remember where the dress or sweater came from.
The boots are from Kohl's. I wore some simple silver jewelry...
a crucifix, little loop earrings, and my James Avery charm bracelet
and heart with gold cross ring. And some RED lipstick!
My goal is to fit into my black slacks by the end of Lent, and to stay away from peasant skirts for most of the season! Trying my hardest to stay off white flour and sugar this week.
A little Lenten reflection:::
First of all, today during Mass we had a lovely family with lots of talented singers attending who joined our choir at the last minute. What a gift! Our choir director was without a voice, so we were very grateful for the other beautiful voices who joined in. They have nearly perfected this gorgeous Ave Maria polyphony, except imagine it with beautiful male as well as female voices...
This weekend I had a beautiful Holy Spirit moment. I drove to San Antonio with 3 friends to do some shopping at Costco and Trader Joe's. We considered first attending confession and mass downtown, but we were all getting hungry. We drove through one shopping area, but finally settled on my recommendation of the restaurant I love...
LaMadeleine! We were in line ordering, and the next people to walk in the restaurant were MY AUNT, COUSIN, and COUSIN'S DAUGHTER. I haven't seen them in maybe 5 years. I couldn't believe it! S.A. is a metro area of 2.2 million people and the people who came into the restaurant right after us were MY ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS who live in that city! If that wasn't a Holy Spirit moment, I don't know what else could be! Thank you, Jesus, for that very special gift, and for showing me that you are with me. Even when I can't attend every mass or devotion that I would like, your Holy Will may be done in ways that we cannot understand. What a special gift to see these family members! I am still in awe.
