“Once, I had night duty, and I was suffering greatly in spirit because of the painting of the image, and I no longer knew which way to turn because they were constantly trying to convince me that the whole thing was an illusion.  On the other hand, one priest said that perhaps God wanted to be worshiped through this image and therefore I ought to try to get it painted.  Meanwhile, my soul was becoming extremely exhausted.  When I entered the little chapel, I brought my head close to the tabernacle, knocked and said, ‘Jesus look at the great difficulties I am having because of the painting of this image.’  And I heard a voice from the tabernacle, My daughter, your sufferings will not last much longer.

                                                                                                                                St. Faustina 

                                                                                                                               Diary Number 152

 

My Thoughts:  Lord Jesus I give you my great difficulties today to do with as you wish.  Mend them.  Don’t mend them.  Show me a different path.  Don’t show me a different way.  Heal me.  Don’t heal me.  Please help me to see how everything I am going through has a purpose and a place in your plan for me.  I ask you to guide me along the correct path.  Amen. 

Psalm 87

The Joy of Living in Zion

Of the Korahites. A Psalm. A Song.

On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
    the Lord loves the gates of Zion
    more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Glorious things are spoken of you,
    O city of God.  Selah

Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;
    Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia[a]
    ‘This one was born there,’ they say.

And of Zion it shall be said,
    ‘This one and that one were born in it’;
    for the Most High himself will establish it.
The Lord records, as he registers the peoples,
    ‘This one was born there.’  Selah

Singers and dancers alike say,
    ‘All my springs are in you.’

Psalm 88

Prayer for Help in Despondency

A Song. A Psalm of the Korahites. To the leader: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite.

O Lord, God of my salvation,
    when, at night, I cry out in your presence,
let my prayer come before you;
    incline your ear to my cry.

For my soul is full of troubles,
    and my life draws near to Sheol.
I am counted among those who go down to the Pit;
    I am like those who have no help,
like those forsaken among the dead,
    like the slain that lie in the grave,
like those whom you remember no more,
    for they are cut off from your hand.
You have put me in the depths of the Pit,
    in the regions dark and deep.
Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
    and you overwhelm me with all your waves.  Selah

You have caused my companions to shun me;
    you have made me a thing of horror to them.
I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
    my eye grows dim through sorrow.
Every day I call on you, O Lord;
    I spread out my hands to you.
10 Do you work wonders for the dead?
    Do the shades rise up to praise you?  Selah
11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave,
    or your faithfulness in Abaddon?
12 Are your wonders known in the darkness,
    or your saving help in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But I, O Lord, cry out to you;
    in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14 O Lord, why do you cast me off?
    Why do you hide your face from me?
15 Wretched and close to death from my youth up,
    I suffer your terrors; I am desperate.[a]
16 Your wrath has swept over me;
    your dread assaults destroy me.
17 They surround me like a flood all day long;
    from all sides they close in on me.
18 You have caused friend and neighbour to shun me;
    my companions are in darkness.

Here are my thoughts after reading and praying: 

Yes, the Lord loves me.  I question whether the He loves me.  I am in pain, constantly.  How can a good God allow me to be in such extreme pain?  I think, there must be a purpose, but don’t know what.  in my heart I know that Jesus loves me but my brain questions His love for me.  I am sympathetic to those who wonder how an all good, omniscient, and omnipotent God can allow such horrible tragedies, diseases, disasters, and turmoil in this world?  We need to remember that God does not intervene in persons free will decisions.  In going through my pain I have become closer to Christ.  Are these sufferings a wake up call?  God wants us to be closer to Him but these tragedies are odd ways for that to occur.  Yet we do not understand the ways of the Lord.  The Lord calls us to trust Him.  This is hard when going through tough times.  We are called to have faith that God has a plan for each of us and that He will guide and take us to where we need to be. 

 

Everything in Time by Teresa Rice 

Time is, time does what? 

Time gone by

Time is here

Waiting for time to come

Time well spent

Time wasted

Time tells tales

Time hurts

Time heals

Time tick tocks over and over again

As we construct our lives in time.

My senses have been accosted by images of mass executions,children being beheaded or crucified, Christian men being hung and woman and girls being raped and sold as sex slaves in the open market. Such is the savagery of ISIS. The Iraqi army is no match for these assassins and we’re no longer there to provide support thanks to our president’s desire to brag about: “I ended the war in Iraq.”

Our president has yielded to public pressure and authorized dropping aid to the Yazidis,who are trapped on a mountain and dying of thirst and hunger as they try to avoid certain doom at the hands of these hellspawn. He also authorized a few pinprick bombings of the bad guys so he can say crap like “I ordered” and “acting…

Yesterday both of our cats, Goofy and Patches, passed away.  Not sure why. They were 9 years old. Somehow in the apartment we got fleas even though they were indoor cats. We tried some things to get rid of the fleas but nothing worked very well. Both Kevin and I are crushed, hurting so badly.  They helped me get through my hysterectomy and so much else. I miss them so so so much.

I love them so much with all my heart. They will be in my heart always. They will be remembered always. RIP Patches RIP Goofy

We're bitter clingers who support limited government, support our military and veterans, don't mind waving Old Glory, and telling you we love the USA. Are you with us?
