Plague Journal as a theme is getting mighty old. Good news: After asking a few friends to pray, I’ve upgraded from “death warmed over” to “death minced with bacon and turned into a proper hash, thank you very much.” So I’m back to writing stuff again, that’s good.
Meanwhile, since you’re reading this it means you either have time to pray more, or else you have something dreadful to offer up. I’m asking specifically for prayers that: (a) I’ll get an accurate dx on this most recent round o’ plague, and (b) that I’ll get done everything I need to do. The stuff I don’t need to do? Whatever. Just the important things, thanks, that’s all I’m asking for.
Meanwhile, some things I wrote before this bout set in quite so aggressively:
At CatholicMom.Com, I answer the old “socialization” question. I know. I thought I didn’t care about that argument anymore,either. Then I saw a real live human being worry about it. So it became a topic again.
And if that doesn’t raise your blood pressure enough, at AmazingCatechists.com, I wade into the raging debate over whether we ought to have religious education classes for children at all. Lisa Mladnich tells me I’m insightful and clear-thinking, so that settles it. Read the other opinions, than go see my article to find out what you’re really supposed to think.
