So glad Staples took care of your pc "issues". It is so annoying when the computer doesn't perform properly. How did we SURVIVE without all this technology? LOL

Hope everyone on this team is well.

I had a phone conversation with my aunt (my mother's sister. I haven't spoken to her for over 6 yrs; due to a "feud". The only reason I called today was my mother's OTHER sister is staying with her). We used to be VERY CLOSE & I think that joining this team encouraged me to be a little FORGIVING & put the past behind me. We had a nice chat.

Thank you, CATHOLICCORGI for your beautiful message. We have so much in our Catholic Faith that blesses our every day lives. We have the beautiful Mysteries of the Rosary which bless us so much when we pray on those holy beads. At least a few decades ago, a Priest who pastored our Parish, when I would go to confession, would tell me to ask our Blessed Mother to intercede for me, and to this day, I always ask for her intercession. I feel for you, and for all those I am connected to that I do regular posting to on Spark People. Many suffer so much, and I feel each persons pain & sorrow are their way of carrying the cross with our Lord each day. There is such horrendous sin commited against our Lord, our Heavenly Father, our very dear Blessed Mother, and the Holy Spirit. Such sin, and so much evilness in this world. When we are suffering we can offer it at the feet of Jesus. I do feel that brings us some consolation to our inner being.
Please know that I will be bringing your needs into my prayers of the Joyful Mysteries this evening. I have mentioned a few other intentions that have come along. I'm sure their are a number of us adding on from day to day.
May God bless us and watch over us all. May He ease the suffering and bring iinner joy to each of you, as you turn to Him with all your heart.
With much love & & prayers, Janis

Thank you, Janis! We are all being tested and "taught" through what life is handing us right now. Our Faith WILL sustain us in whatever situation we find ourselves in. I find it very comforting to know that God allows only those things which will ultimately benefit us and bring glory to Him. If I get discouraged, I look to Job. I also look at what Jesus endured for His love of us. Granted, I am not Jesus, but I DO have access to His strength and wisdom, if I but ask for it. My Blessed Mother also is an example. When I do not understand something, I keep "it" in my heart and ponder it, and I know God will reveal to me what I need to know, as I need to know it. I look at how my DH has changed, and I know my Mother's pain as she watched her Son suffer and die. Until we partake of suffering and sorrow, we will not truly understand. But what we can understand is that Someone has gone before us, and we will not be left unaided.
I ask the Holy Spirit to impart wisdom, courage and peace to all of us this day. May we have discernment in every situation we face today. HS, grant us a sense of Christ's Presence all about us. Jesus, we trust in You!

What a beautiful and heart touching letter you wrote, CATHOLICCORGI. I truely feel for all you're going through. When I say my Rosary a little later on I will be thinking of You, your DH & asking for our Dear Lord to give you all the Grace you need to help you through all this. I know He is carrying You through this. I pray for Him to give you all the courage & strength that You need to get through all this. Life can be so hard at times. It does seem that Yours is that way right now. What would we do without our FAITH? The Rosary is such a powerful tool. We are so blest in our Catholic Faith. I was an Extraordinary Minister at Mass. I feel so honored when I'm a Lector or Extraordinary Minister at Mass. I still have been slipping up and saying Eucharistic Minister after so many years of typing it in our Ministry Schedules and saying it. When I slip up, I'm either correcting myself or someone is correcting me...oops!!!
I love being a part of the Catholic Critters. I'm so glad that I started searching through teams and found one that I deeply relate to.
I will be keeping all of my Dear Catholic Friends in my prayers. I feel their are many of you dealing with either alot of physical pain, mental anguish of things happening in your Family, yourself or other dear ones in your life. I will not forget anyone of you in my prayers.
May God give each one of you what you need to bring comfort to your heart & soul.
My love & prayers, Janis emoticon

Thank you for your prayers!
As He does, the HS will allow us to reach what we feel is our limit, and then some. Then a great blessing falls upon you, and you realize how small the "little foxes" really are... and that offering them to God is a good thing.
We went out on our errands yesterday with me in tears. I was physically exhausted and mentally drained. I didn't care what DH thought. I could not stop the tears. I think I was coming to the realization that the life we had is no longer. Our new normal(for both of us) is ahead, and I need to trust completely in what the Lord has in store. He HAS gone before and prepared the way. I finally got it together as we reached the bread outlet. When we returned to the truck to leave, my phone rang. It was the lady with Social Security here in town who has helped us with DH's disability stuff. She said he was approved for total disability! This is a very good thing! Yet, I know it is going to be a very hard cross for DH to bear. We have not been to the primary neuro MD to discuss the tests the neuro psych did. The SS lady said she had no clue as to what the test results were, but they were significant enough to get DH approved the first try. And the neuro psych had declared him mentally incompetent. No way am I telling DH I know this... It will be a blow to his self esteem. SS wants me to be his Representative of Benefits, as the neuro psych says he is incapable of handling his own finances. Well, I've done it for 35 years anyway... We will be getting the info from SS Disability this week. It will be a relief to know we have some money for the medical bills we will incur. He will go on Medicare in 24 months.
So I am even more than grateful for the 54 day Novena than before! God is preparing me for more change. I welcome whatever He gives. HE is my strength!
I was very aware of the prayers of my SP friends yesterday! Although I have a sense of relief on the financial front, I am sad because of the fact that DH's disability is now official and what I have been dealing with now is recognized and validated, and in the open. I have some fear because of the unknown... what the tests actually found out, how DH will respond to the answers and treatment, how our lives are going to be different...
The answer, as always, is "Jesus, I trust in You!" Doesn't make it easier. Doesn't make it pleasant. But it DOES make it "livable" and there is a sense of comfort knowing He has everything under control. I live in His presence one day at a time, staying in His Presence by choice.
Again, I am so grateful for SP and my CC friends! I have a safe place to come for support when I need it, without judgement. I give glory to God for the gift!
I'm sticking to the SP basics, again, until I find a center of balance in the health and fitness dept. I am NOT emotionally eating! TYJ!
Thanks for allowing me to ramble. I love you all!
May God grant you many special graces this day! May Our Mother guide you into a deeper walk with her Son!
I lift everyone up to Our Father every day in my prayers, and when I go to Mass!

CATHOLICCORGI, as much as we love our DH's, they can try our patience, and vice-versa. I've been married going on 46 years in October. My DH knows how to push my buttons. Maybe he isn;t trying too but it happens. Now that he's retired (since 2003), we spend more time together. I hope your DH settled down. I do believe God wants us to offer it up when possible with an added prayer of course. You and all Catholic Critters are in my prayers "always"With Love, Prayers & emoticon to you, Janis

Janis, you've got it right... we usually keep track of our Novena Prayers on the Novena Thread! How you have it is just fine!
Because I can be so distracted with my DH, I go ahead and make my post out listing the whole Novena at the beginning, then I just go back and edit each day.
**** Guys, I need prayer! My DH is very agitated and the devil is trying to get the best of me. I am at my limit with tolerance. DH is pacing and being loud and difficult. I'm offering up my impatience. Going to be a long day. God IS in charge.****
Thank you!

I hope each one of you has had a good day. With all of our prayers going up to our Heavenly Father, with our Blessed Mother inceding for us, what powerful prayer we have with our Rosary. I will be saying my Rosary later on, and I want to know if it is suppose to be recored daily on here that we make the Novena each day? I did that last night as I thought I was suppose to. Would one of you verify that for me. As I said, I have alot to learn on my computer, alot of things I'm trying to learn on Spark People. For whatever reason I have not mastered the art of copying & pasting.
I'm so happy to be a part of this Novena. emoticon
I hope each of you has a most blessed weekend. How can we not feel blest as we saying the Rosary with our beautiful prayers.

I have GOOD NEWS, too! We FINALLY got the pathology report about my husband's surgery. We waited 3 weeks to hear: 100 % BENIGN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those were VERY HAPPY WORDS to me! The first thing I said AFTER I heard them was: THANK YOU, GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't REALLY been able to relax for 3 weeks; now I feel CALM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you to ALL on this team who prayed for us. Please continue to do so; bc we are not TOTALLY out of the woods. I will remember to keep all of you in MY prayers, too!

I want to share the most recent news of my wallet. It was found. The Police Officer told me they found bits & pieces of my wallet. I understood it this way: what remained in my wallet was my social security card, my checkbook and he said a prayer card. When I get it retuned I will tell you which prayer card. I did have a couple inside my wallet. The wallet was found near this bridge, which is by a boat launch. All my other important items plus, she tossed in an outdoor toilet. The wallet will be held as evidence for now. I had $64. that she accounted for in my wallet, plus the $100. Debit Gift Card. I'm glad I know they have the wallet and what remained in it.
Thank you for your prayers.
As to all of you, you are in myprayers "ALWAYS".

Good news, Janis!

KSABBY - sorry to hear that the pregnancy is not so "smooth sailing" anymore. Will pray for you that all continues to be well.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

This Novena is something very new to me. Since I love the Rosary so much, I wanted to do it.
I've already had one very good thing come on the very first day. They found the person who stole my wallet. I don't know if my wallet has been found yet. I had heard from a Police Officer that she claimed she tossed it by a bridge. Shewas suppose to go and meeta Deputy Sherrif by the bridge where she claimed she tossed it. She used the $100. Debit Gift Card from my wallet and then she used a stores reward card for a discount. God is giving me much peace. I owe God every honor, glory & praise!
I just felt I needed to share that good news with you.
Love & prayers, Janis emoticon is God! emoticon

I'm keeping everyone in my prayers.

Please say an extra prayer for me and baby. I'm on modified bedrest for the time being because my fluid was on the "low end of normal" my last 2 Biophysical Profiles. Also, the baby is breech and I REALLY need her to turn and get head down. Finally, I have to have a scan to see how big she is so please pray that she is normal sized (I'm not measuring big but since I have Gestational Diabetes they want to check anyway...)

I know that's a lot. This pregnancy is getting high maintenance...


Thanks!

Hello all!
Sorry to have been MIA from this thread. I pray for all you Critters daily, but seeing the requests each day overwhelms me sometimes. I know it is probably the devil trying to discourage me, or make me despair, but there it is.

God is so good!

I lift all of you up to the Lord, and ask Him to be with you all. I pray that He has mercy on us all, that he comforts the dying, the mourning, and the struggling. I also ask that He heals the sick and those recovering from surgery. I pray a special prayer for all those we love who have turned from God or from the Church, that they return to the fold, and that those who love them always remember that Christ desires their conversion even more than we do! Amen!

Please pray too for my MIL - she is very ill. She goes into hospital again tomorrow. She is awaiting some answers and treatments that will lessen her pain, and help her on the road to wellness again.

cj

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I picked my husband up from rehab this morning. He is finally home after more than 2 weeks!
We still don't have the pathology report, so keep praying that all turns out well.

Thank you for all the prayers.

Remembering everyone in my prayers! I am trying to stay positive and focus on my blessings. I am still so worried about my son "relapsing." But I know God loves him and is working with him.
Thanks be to God my older son is back to work after being laid off for seven months! Praying that he is open to God's will in his life.

My husband saw the surgeon today. He didn't take out the staples or have the pathology report results; & now Ray's leg is infected bc of neglect & improper care in the rehab. It needs to be cleaned at least once a day with alcohol & saline & fresh bandages applied. Please pray that we get GOOD pathology results & the infection clears up with no further complications.

I pray Annie gets that heart transplant soon.

I hope I don't sound GREEDY; but I could use a few prayers myself. I must have picked up something when I was staying overnight in the hospital with my husband. I AM SO SICK!
I can't breathe, I am so congested & feel all achy! I'm supposed to work on Fri.; but I don't think I can.

Ray is gonna be in the rehab until next week. Good thing HE ISN'T HERE! I can barely take care of myself. I don't need to transfer this to him. He has enough problems!

How are you doing, Dee? I know how tough it is to lose a mother. My mother died 2 yrs ago on May 30.

The hospital wanted to SEND HIM HOME ON SATURDAY!!!!! I, too, know ALL ABOUT how they want to kick you out before you are ready to go! It's a shame how health care for human beings has become a sort of "assembly line". The HUMAN PATIENTS are shown very little, if ANY compassion. I find people who treat animals to be much more compassionate! They seem to really care about their "furry" patients! I KNOW Drs can't get emotionally involved with their patients; but I think they could at LEAST make an APPEARANCE!

I'm doing o.k. I'll have a LOT more to do once he comes home.

Barbara, sounds like a plan! I so often hear of them throwing out patients before they should be, so it must be a good thing for him to stay until Monday!
How are YOU doing?

Hi everyone! First, I'd like to thank EVERYBODY for praying for us. Ray's surgery went well & was NOT as invasive as expected. The surgeon did NOT have to put the plate on the bone, so the "down time" should be less. He is, however, in GREAT PAIN & is very stiff. He has a lot of trouble walking. He is going to be transferred to a rehab sometime today.
I stayed with him 2 nights in the hospital. I would have stayed LAST night too; but I would not be allowed to go to the rehab in the ambulance WITH HIM, so, since I didn't have a car, I would be stuck in Miami.

Thanks again & hope everyone on this team is doing well.

Thanks everyone for your prayers.
My Dad's surgery went well. His heart never even stopped and they didn't need to use the heart and hung machine. Praise God!
