Help! I’m Stuck in a Mineshaft!

I blame Greg Willits. I really do.

There I was, minding my own life, when I stumbled across an article he’d written about Minecraft, some video game that Joaquin was in love with, and I understood to be limited to blowing up lego shapes with blocks of TNT.  It all went down from there, and I’m trying to dig my way out.  Hop on over to Aleteia to read all about it.

Don’t forget to enter the Six Year Blogoversary giveaway for your chance to win a $60 gift card to your choice of a number of fabulous places.  I didn’t include the Minecraft store, which is probably good.

This week’s Theme Thursday topic was suggested by Annie, and I think it’s a great idea:


give them a box, and they will craft something out of it

Craft (or crafty, or crafting, or crafted, whatever.  You conjugate it how you like).  We’ve certainly got enough projects around here to be spoiled by choices- Pinewood derby cars, quilts, knitting projects, you name it.  But you know what I thought of when I made the graphic for this week?

Yup.  Minecraft.

So how about this- if you link up, I promise not to take a picture of anything Minecraft-related, ok?


One last scatterbrained thing before I go (play Minecraft)- if you could remember Marie and her family in your prayers, I know they’d be grateful.  You can read her story of sadness and hope here.

    Hi Cari, thank you so much for praying for our family. I am sitting here on pins and needles as we have our 1st official OB appt tomorrow and it was at this exact same point in my last pregnancy that we found out we miscarried. I am absolutely terrified the same thing will happen. Thankfully I have gotten to see the little peanut (affectionately now called baby Titus) via ultrasound twice already, but I am begging the Lord it won’t be the last time I see him/her alive.

    Anyway, all this to say, thank you and I have been meaning to write you back about your original comment about the darkness that Bl. Titus must have experienced. That comment keeps coming back to me multiple times per day and I am so grateful you were led by the Holy Spirit to share that. Thank you!

    Joseph is incredibly deep into this and he and his friend from our old town “get together” regularly and play, they even make videos. It has been a fabulous way for preteen boys to stay connected where otherwise their good friendship would most likely have been left behind.
