Quote: Originally Posted by SoHappy I use Dr. Bronners in a foam pump dispenser. Just a little soap and a bunch of water. Probably about a 1:6 ratio. Play with it a little until you get the foam consistency you want. If it's not foamy, you probably need more water, not more soap. I just put a squirt of foam on my sponge/scrubber as I wash. Yep, it works! I was amazed. I put a huge squirt and the rest with water and it foams up...
Don't skip Animal Kingdom! There is so much for EVERYONE to enjoy there! I suggest only going two days if you are staying three...go one day, spend one day just goofing off, go the next day. We tried to get so much in during three days that by the end of it all, my legs were hurting so dang bad, they were sore for two...spend a day at the resort, swimming, playing putt putt golf or something, or just driving around...now, that's my advice.
Oh, dear, what a rough spot to be in. Sometimes the best thing is not to be involved that much in a church. Sorry, but I've been through some of the most horrible experiences in churches, gone through splits, gone through *let's get this pastor out* and all of the above. Maybe you should start fresh. Look for a church that feeds your soul, that's most important and then you can easily feed your children's souls. Prayer for you.

Easter lasts until Pentecost Sunday on May 11th and I would like to recognize each Easter weekday. Do you have ideas you can give me? My children are 7, almost 5 and 23 months. I know that many people celebrate Pentecost by wearing red. Thank you and God bless you...

I thought that I have seen you post on Catholic Mamas threads. As for Lent, we use Jesus' example of dying to one's self. If we die to ourself,...
The Agony in the Garden. The very first Sorrowful Mystery of the Holy Rosary. When Jesus was in the garden, the Father showed him the sins of the world. He trembled in fear. He did feel alone for a little time, because this burden of our sins was put upon him...when Satan tempted him, Jesus knew at that moment that this all was to happen and it was His Father's will. Also, in the Catholic Church, we have a devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This devotion...
I know exactly how you feel! I'm sure we've all been there at some time or another. Start surrounding yourself with Catholic books, read, read, read, even if you are not praying. Then print off the lectionary, and read the daily scripture readings or at least read Sunday's readings. My sponsor gave me some great advice. Even when you don't feel like praying and being spiritual at home, keep going to Mass, stay with the Sacraments and just keep going. And...
Quote: Originally Posted by b&c'smama I have really loved reading this thread. I became Catholic as a teenager, but have never really been deeply connected or involved with Church. DH and I were married in the Church, both DS' have been baptized, and I have attended Mass semi-regularly, but that's about it. I was a pretty "casual Catholic" to say the least. It is fair to say I am pretty clueless about my religion! Now my oldest DS is getting ready...
