I started this blog two years ago. When I did I came up with the name and then copied a dictionary entry for the word sacrament and pasted it as a subtitle. I thought it was self explanatory.
When people read: "Sacrament...An action or object of ecclesiastical origin that serves to express or increase devotion" I thought they would understand that I see motherhood as something sacred and that my life as a mother increases my devotion to both my family and to God.
Well, I guess it wasn't as clear as I thought. Daniel in particular is asking for some clarification. He hates "church" talk and apparently my subtitle is too churchy. He doesn't really understand what I mean when I say "sacrament" or "ecclesiastical", Go figure.
I am going to ignore the fact that he has had these feelings for two years and is just getting around to telling me maybe I could be a little more succinct. (Thanks for helping me start strong, honey.)
I am also going to give his male IT brain the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe he isn't the only one that doesn't quite get it. I will also refrain from pointing out that maybe male, computer geeks aren't my target audience.
I will ignore all these variables and make an effort to appease my husband and work on a new subtitle.
Maybe in the course of helping Daniel I just might make my blog a little more approachable for everyone. To that end I have come up with some new subtitles. Here there are:
Viewing motherhood as a spiritual journey.
Seeing God in ordinary days.
Seeing Jesus in my family and being Jesus to my family.
Letting Motherhood form my soul.
Living the higher purpose in motherhood.
Reclaiming motherhood as a spiritual act.
Making every day sacred.
That's what I have so far. Please vote on your favorite. I would love to hear what makes sense to you and why.
I do want moms - and male computer geeks - to read what I write and be encouraged that inside every day is a miracle, we just have discover it.
Hmmm, that sounds like a good subtitle.
