What do you think?

I've been away from my blog for a while, but with it in spirit.
I'd like to share a bit of why I it takes me so long to write.....
In my story I explain that God gave me back my life, but not necessarily my health.  It may sound strange, but I think He made the right choice! However, fatigue and other difficulties, as well as clinical depression just limit my ability to get everything done.  I want to be a good wife, a good daughter, sister, so if something has to take a back seat, it will always be the computer.
     My husband is a wonderful man, and my family of origin is a loving group of individuals that I really enjoy spending time with.  I have a new life, one I never expected to have, and am still settling in with. I've never owned a house before, so I'm thrilled with the constant nesting possibilities, including gardening, which due to my need to not be in heat/sun requires I do what I can in the odd hours.
     Recently there was a post in the NCRegister  regarding Bishop Tobin's recent article about the RI Legislature voting to accept Civil Unions of Homosexuals. (I love Bishop Tobin! even have pictures of myself and husband with him!)
      I was appalled at the comments, and realized that I would love to address the very strange comments..... I posted a few replies on the article, yet.... the more comments get posted, the more I feel like I just have to distance myself from the same bad logic that I bought into when I was living in that lifestyle. 
     I hope that makes sense....
     I'm not saying I won't write in my blog about my journey, however, I am not that person anymore.  I really want to blog about how wonderful life is when you come back to The Catholic Church, and the various things that come to mind on a daily basis as I walk this journey.
     I know I don't have a huge following, however those that do follow are fabulous and encouraging.  I don't want to let you down by not writing something!
     Please let me know what you think, do you think I should continue on writing about my journey?  It seems so many are interested in my reversion, and I'm glad, very glad, however, is it acceptable to write about the here and now part of my journey as well?
     Please leave me a comment, and if you have questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them, (at least that gives me a direction....), last but not least, please accept my apologies for not writing as often as I myself would like.


  1. I would love to read about your journey sometime.

  2. I think you should do what you think God wants you to do....just like you did in entering the Church. :-) Much love to you, my sister!

  3. Yes, I definitely think you should continue to write about your present journey too. Conversion is always ongoing and I'd love to read more posts from you. God bless!

  4. Dearest Mrs. J, God set you free from where you are, there is no need for your blog to hold you in the past. Write as the Lord leads you, bits of your story may come out here and there. Glorify God in your now!

    You are so wise to put your family first! May God bless your health according to His perfect Holy Will!
