Remember you are dust.

Wow, it's been a long time since I blogged here. Partially from being busy, partially from little desire to do so, and partially because I heartily agree with many of the points my friend Katie makes in her farewell post.

I'm not sure if I'll continue blogging at all. One of the things God has put on my heart recently is a call to analyze and discern if I'm using my time effectively for His kingdom. Lent is a good time for discernment, so we'll see what happens. There are so many things that occupy my time- good things, fun things, work things, social things, spiritual things, service things. Prioritizing is key.

But nevertheless, I am looking forward to Lent. It's always my favorite liturgical season, except for Triduum, because we are called to examine ourselves and be honest and critical abut the ways in which we've fallen short... and the ways in which God picks us up. It's beautiful. My diocese is embarking on an exciting Catholics Come Home campaign, and participating in the planning and execution over the past seven months has been thrilling (and exhausting). I just pray the commercials draw people home...and more importantly, that when people come back they feel truly home.

...and to dust you shall return.
