So we've started a new mini-ministry at home. We're doing Rosary-Potlucks. Every week friends come over, we share a meal, write down our intentions, and pray the rosary together. It's only happened twice so far, but I'm hoping it continues and grows. For Jon and I, the rosary is something that has been really central to our marriage. It's nice to be able to share the devotion to this great prayer with friends.

If you want to join us come on over! We usually have it on Tuesdays at 6:30pm. Though this week we're either going to change the time or cancel because of the 40days for Life kick off.

Maybe in October we'll kick Rosaruck up a notch and read a paragraph out of Secret of the Rosary each week. Who knows, we're open to suggestions.

Anyone done anything like this before? What made the experience richer or more meaningful?

Seven Things I love

I was tagged by Carrie.

1. Watching my husband laugh really hard. Jon's face goes a bit red and his smile is so huge.

2. Waking up some mornings to Clare saying "mamamamamamama" and waving at me.

3. Going to Mass and recieving Christ. Bringing Clare to Mass. I love trying to face Clare towards the altar during consecration and whispering "that's Jesus" in her ear. She's distracted most of the time, but it's still cool.

4. When Jon and I have time to sit down and read together.

5. Cooking! I like trying new recipes. I like trying new recipes even more if I already have the ingredients. :)

6. Hosting parties, espeically ones that involve the Rosary.

7. Being with my whole family. It's so much fun having my parents, Joy and Peter, all the kids, the aunts and uncles, and cousins around. That's why the wedding reception was so much fun. The whole Ledesma family + Ramseyer family + all our friends!!! If we all get to heaven it's going to be awesome.

I tag...Jessica, Janet, Neil, Lauren Frisch, Jon, Colin and Brett

I know they don't all have blogs, but maybe they'll do it on facebook.
