From the Editor-In -Chief

***written and shared by Runaway Nun and Leprechauns editor in chief***

As I was getting out at the track to get in a 3 mile walk/run, I caught a glimpse of the finger rosary that was given to me on Mother’s Day at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. I was reminded that I used to pray the rosary as I walked around the track, and I wouldn’t stop walking until I prayed the entire rosary. I walked everyday and prayed the rosary everyday. When I graduate to a jog, I stopped taking the rosary with me, because as oddly as it sounds, I couldn’t think, pray and concentrate on breathing at the same time.

For those of you saying that praying the rosary is only for Catholics, you’re wrong. All of you prayer warriors, those trying to increase their prayer lives and those wanting to pray but having a hard time getting started, try using the rosary. Even if you don’t learn the prayers that we Catholics use to pray the rosary (also used to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy), use it to reflect, meditate and to simply stay focused.
An easy way to pray is to pray with A.C.T.S.
Adoration – give all praise, glory and honor to God;
Confession – confess your sins and ask for forgiveness;
Thanksgiving – there are so many reasons to be thankful that one may need another rosary if each bead were used just in this area;
Supplication – make your requests known to God – no matter how big or small.

Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
