I never really try to put Cecilia in the pack n' play, but for some reason she apparently really likes to go in there! I think it's those hidden treasures in there that she forgets about when roaming throughout our house. She just sat in there and played while I cleaned up the house and got things ready for a BBQ that we had.
We invited some friends over, and a priest named Father Will Schmid, and got our house blessed! It was a long time coming, and it was so beautiful and incredible that our friends were there to support us. Fr. Will talked about blessing the people who live in the house and all those who come to visit - and that we have a spirit of hospitality for everyone. That was our biggest intention when getting this home - was to open its doors for visitors and for friends to come and create a sense of community, of time together to build His church and His kingdom. I am so thankful to Fr. Will and all those who have helped me in making this house a home - and especially to all those who have come into our home as guests and as friends, who have made this house into a home with their presence, openness and love.
