Music of the Week #1

Hey y'all!!!  :)



I am a big music person. Most of the day, I have earbuds in. Music is my life and I don't know what I would do without it. Music has gotten me through some tough times so I will always be grateful there is music in the world.

Ok, Lia get to the point now!

Anyway I am posting five songs per week that I like. This will be any genre, though rap and screamo and other weird music I will not be posting.

Here goes!



Raelynn- Diamonds.
This song is Just. So. Amazing!!! (how many of these will begin with that phrase???)
Raelynn has an awesome voice and this song is so beautiful and I could go on but I don't want to spoil anything.







Diamond Rio- One More Day
This song actually made me cry the first time I heard it.
It's so beautiful. I just can't even find words perfect enough to describe it.




Hunter Hayes- Wanted
Those who know me know that I am obsessed with Hunter Hayes. This was the first song I ever heard from him and I have loved him ever since. This …

Quotes #1

I am finding a lot of quotes on Pinterest so I will post some of them periodically. I am a really big quote fan so expect a lot of these posts.

Also I am not sure who the author is on some of these so I you want to know just ask and I'll try to find out for you. :)



Fog on her glasses
From the still steaming tea
A book in her hand
As she casually reads.
A catch in her breath
As the climax grows near
She's deaf to the world:
The book's all she can hear
She's completely lost now,
Or perhaps she is found
In this strange paper world
That's far from the ground.




I love you just the way you are
but you don't see you like I do.
You shouldn't try so hard to be perfect.
Trust me, perfect should try to be you.




I will not be another flower,
picked for my beauty
and left to die.
I will be wild,
difficult to find,
and impossible to forget.



Roses aren't always red
& violets aren't exactly blue,
the society that we live in
never seems to speak the truth.

St. Cecilia Patroness of Musicians

Hey y'all!!


Today is the feast day of St. Cecilia. She is one of my patron saints so I thought I would make a post about her.



St. Cecilia lived in the early days of the church. On her wedding night, she was praying to her guardian angel and her husband, Valerian, came into the room and saw her angel.

He wanted to know who the angel was so Cecilia told him to go see the pope. Valerian and his brother were received into the Church and were martyred shortly after.

Cecilia was ordered to give up her faith and she refused.

She was imprisoned in her bathhouse which was heated to a very high temperature.

Cecilia was left in the bathhouse for three days. She remained unhurt.

The judge ordered her to be beheaded. The executioner struck her three times and her head was partially severed from her body. She lay on ground for three days and expired on the third day.

St. Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians. Its great that I'm named after her cause I sing a lot. I mean a LOT.

Just Wanted To Share This With You Guys.

I found this poem on Pinterest and I like it so much I thought I would share it.



Don't cry because he told you,
That his love has slipped away,
Because I once knew a boy,
Who watched the sun rise every day,
One morning I sat with him,
Wrapped entirely in my awe,
But he said he'd viewed so many,
Six a.m. was all he saw,
And you're a brilliant sunrise,
With your darkness-breaking light,
But I know he's forgotten,
Life without you is just night,
He cannot see your beauty,
Since he's taken it for granted,
But that doesn't mean it's failed,
To leave the rest of us enchanted,
You deserve the love of someone,
Who'll watch you rise over again,
And may they never come to see you,
As another six a.m.

-e.h.

All Saints Day

Hey guys!


Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I've been a bit busy(aka homework, joy)

Anyway I had some free time on my hands and decided to make a post.



November 1st was All Saints Day. It is a holy day of obligation. A holy day of obligation means you are required to go to church that day. It's like a Sunday during the week.

Our church had its All Saints Day party on November 6th. All of the kids in the parish dress up as a saint and our priest and the adults have to guess who they are.

Basically, all the kids in our parish look through saint books and try to find the most obscure saints no one has ever heard of. It worked too. Our priest had the hardest time trying to guess. It was really funny!


Me, I didn't dress up. I stopped dressing up when I turned 13. It just wasn't as fun as it used to be.

After the guessing is finished, the teenagers in our parish set up games for all the kids to come back and play. I was in charge of the St. Peter's Fis…

Pray For Our Troops

Today is Veteran's day. The day dedicated to all American Troops, those who have served, those who are serving and those who have fallen in service of their country. 
One of my favorite quotes about the fallen is 
Remember: Someone sacrificed their tomorrow so you could have your today. 
So, Please please pray for our troops, especially those overseas and their families. 
(Saint Adrian is the patron saint of soldiers, by the way)
