Thankful for this day above 50 degrees. When we were in the Philippines, we missed the 60-70 degree weather. For the past couple of days, there's even flurries in the morning. I thought I won't wear sweater dresses anymore once I get back from the Philippines. My clothes are still in boxes. This one is a repeater because it's on the top. I did not want to keep digging.

Our Pastor was speaking to me during the homily this First Sunday of Lent... I need to practice discipline when at Mass. Although I have really busy toddlers and preschoolers, I should start with myself so they can follow and imitate.
"The mind needs to be calmed before it is capable of receiving the Word of God. If the mind is filled with noise and focused on several things, it cannot receive divine instruction...
... Are we being still at Mass, or are we distracting others? Emergencies happen, but they are rare: toilet time should happen before or after, but not normally during sacred liturgy..."
homily, Fr. Roberts, First Sunday of Lent,
I need to do better talking with my children during Mass. I sometimes distract other people (pretty sure of it) when I could not handle the fussy toddler. I also give in to the toilet requests of a certain 5 year old. I ask them before leaving the house to go to the potty, but honestly, most of the time, I forget.
Jesus had to practice discipline himself before staring his ministry. He is God and does not need penance but since he is also human, "he needed to conform his human will to the will of the Father."
