My posting has not been what I had hoped. Another apology given, another forgiveness received. This must be how God, the Father feels. We say we will do something - that first son of the vineyard - and then we don't. Better if I were the second son who says I won't and then do??
No, best to be the child who only says what they can actually do and then do it.
In that frame of mind, I offer you my family's best wishes for a holy and happy Christmas. May the Baby Jesus send you and your family all you need to love Him better. If that includes some new clothes and new toys, so be it, but if not don't fret because knowing and loving Him is truly the best gift of all, isn't it?

I've noticed a trend over the last few years of Little Flowers and Blue Knights clubs starting in January rather than September. This has some definite advantages. January is typically a slow month without a whole lot going on. Since it is the start of a new year, a new beginning for a club falls right in line with a new resolution to learn and teach virtues in our families. Since the clubs are flexible, you can start wherever and whenever you want. You can still do one virtue a month, work through the summer and finish by September. Or, you can really dive into the material and make the study last longer. Whatever works for you will be fine for the children involved, I'm sure.
So if you've been hesitating in starting a club, now's the time to start! Just to give you a little more incentive, EHP will offer a 10% discount on all orders placed from now until December 31, 2008. Just type in the discount code: CLUB09 Orders must be placed online at the website: www.eccehomopress.com
Have a Holy Advent!
