Need some prayers
Saturday, May 15, 2010
I just got back from a week in Orlando for a conference. Had a great time: my presentation went well, made lots of new contacts/friends, ate some really good food (and the proof is already on my hips).
The third day into the conference I got a call nobody wants: my brother's wife had died. She was in her late 30s but she's had a lot of health issues over the years. We weren't close but she's my only brother's wife and the mother of my very young nieces.
I always travel with my rosary beads but not a Bible since hotel rooms usually have a Bible (to my Catholic friends: yes, I know I should carry a Catholic Bible). Anyway, I flipped through the available Bible and found Romans 8:26. I'm a very sensitive and emotional person and this verse helped me get through the rest of my conference and get me home without falling apart.
