I want to wish you and your families a holy and sacred Feast of the Holy Family. What an awesome idea that God became flesh as a baby in a family. It sanctifies our being family!

For those who need to know...

It has occurred to me that there of those who are going through somethings that are so painful and we will just never know. If this is you, "You are made for so much more than all of this." There are those who are feeling inadequate, tired, despondent. If if this is you, "You are more than what is hurting you tonight." There are those who do not know where to go from here. If this is you, "Before you ever took a breath... of all the wonders HE possessed, there was one more precious." And for those of us who simply need to know that we are not alone, "You are treasured, you are sacred, you are HIS." "Of all the earth and skies above, YOU'RE the one HE madly loves.... enough to die." YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL!!

Pope John Paul II in Lake Chalres!

Just wanted to see if you were paying attention. He's in Heaven, guys, not Lake Charles. But on Wednesday December 12th there will be a public veneration with a Cassoc that belonged to JP II(The dress-looking thing that all priests can wear, but the Pope's is white) at St Henry's Catholic church from 10am to 10pm.
It has been quite an experience- we have had the incredible blessing of having it at our house a few times while it's been in town. If you are in the area (Houston, Lafayette, BR, etc) please know that the Dawson house can be a pit stop for you on your way to see/pray with the Cassoc. His intercession in our family has been huge! Both our sons are connected with him (John Paul's namesake and Jacob's birthday is his feast day). God has blessed us indeed.
