The Living Stone


July 25, 1946

Believe in the effectiveness of your work as part of the universal work of the saints. Think of the ‘living stone’ that you are adding to the spiritual house – this stone that no one else but you is called upon to place in just this same position. This ought to encourage you to make efforts of every kind.  Above all, don’t ever grow weary of our intimacy. Even when you feel good for nothing, give me this nothing.

Caramelized Fennel and Goat Cheese Flatbread | My New Roots

If you love fennel as much as I do, I can bet your tastebuds are tingling at the sight of this flatbread. I know mine did. One of the best things about this recipe is that it uses spelt flour for the crust. Spelt can be a great addition to your diet. Its best to cook with a variety of grains and flours to ensure you’re getting a wide array of nutrients from different foods. Spelt flour has slightly more protein and fewer calories than wheat flour. It’s rich in riboflavin, niacin, manganese, copper, phosphorus and fiber. It also has a much tougher outer husk than wheat which means it is protected during the milling processes and maintains its inherent nutrients and flavor. This also protects from pests and infestations which makes it much easier to grow without the use of pesticides. I can’t wait to try my hand at this… perhaps on Friday as a substitute for a meat dish during lent. Enjoy.

Caramelized Fennel and Goat Cheese Flatbread | My New Roots.



you know that feeling when you can’t believe its all really happening? you just can’t believe how one thing led to another and before you know it you’re engaged to be married. how a coincidental meeting three years ago has completed you in ways you never even know you were lacking. how, since then, nothing has been the same and will never be the same, because i am not the same. i am forever changed by this stranger who came into my life and captured my heart. who gave me a new perspective and changed the way i see the world in all its glory. i am better now, better for having met him and will be forever grateful for the fate of events that led me to him.

may it always be.
