I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a while.
Again? That trick never works!
Seriously, hope all is well in your real life.

I hope it’s not another two year hiatus.
I’ll miss reading your posts, but I pray everything is well with you and your family. God bless.
What do you make of this: http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/10/08/pope-brings-in-catholics-to-explain-how-their-marriage-lasted-55-years-and-their-answer-shocked-the-church/
