Moments of Grace



In honor of my internet being back up…yeah!  (Although I really didn’t miss it the past couple of days.)  I want to play 3-2-1 again, that was fun last week to read your responses!

1 Character From Winnie the Pooh I Am Most Like…
This is tough. I’m probably a Rabbit, but Rabbit was not married with 7 children, meaning, he didn’t have to be flexible. So I’ve got a bit of Pooh Bear because my vocation demands some flexibility. Did I just break my own 3-2-1 by mentioning 2?



Join in the comments. Like I said, it was so much fun to read last week!



Welcome! I’m Jenny, the administrator of Suscipio and author of The Catholic Child’s Teaching Bible©. I have been married to Chris 20 years, strictly by the grace of God. We have seven precious souls from teen to baby. I hope my personal contribution to Suscipio shows what my life really looks like; It’s messy and beautiful and blessed beyond measure.

    Sorry, but, I am a mix too! I am a wee bit of Pooh, mixed with a smackerel of Piglet at times, but, most days I feel totally Kanga!

    Great idea, Jenny!
    Hope you have a blessed weekend.
