Sweet Tweets for 2/09/14 — The Sunday Coast to Coast Edition

If you’re paying attention to this little space on the web, you’ll note that I’ve been largely absent this week. Since Sweet Tweets was published last Friday, I’ve traveled eight hours by car to San Diego with my husband Greg to join him at a medical conference, and then flown across country to join a lovely group of women at the Diocese of Venice’s Women’s Conference in Florida. I have to much to share with you from these two experiences, but that will have to wait for another post. Today, I’m more grateful than ever for our awesome John Clem and this week’s Sweet Tweets. How could I have missed so much news?! John Allen on Facebook? Pope Francis’ Lenten Message? The UN Controversy? Looks like I have a great deal of catching up to do!

Thank you to John Clem for making this weekly feature possible!
