On Wednesday my husband dropped me off so I could pick up my prescription. Since my doctor’s office is at a hospital we devised a plan so we wouldn’t need to spend money on parking in the hospital lot. So when I was done picking up my prescription I called him as planned but his phone went straight to voicemail. Even though I was in pretty bad pain I didn’t want to just sit there or stand waiting for him. So I decided to take a walk down the street. I can’t explain it but I had this feeling like I was being called to walk, almost like God was leading me somewhere. As I walked I would occasionally call him but I still received no answer and no call back. I walked by faith. I knew that there was a Catholic book store down the street run by some nuns but I thought that I would get a hold of Kevin before I made it that far. Not sure how long a walk it was but it wasn’t a short distance. I had made it to the Catholic book store (might be called Sacred Heart Book Store but I forget the name) so I entered the store. I had been in there before a couple of times but it had been a while. Surprisingly one of the nuns remembered me. I began looking around at the books and we began talking. I told them about my endo troubles and that I was going to have surgery soon. They said they would keep me in their prayers and to write my name in their book of intentions. So I did.
Kevin finally found me. Between the both of us we found a few books that we liked. The nuns were so kind. As we were about to leave they gave us holy water and they let me pick out a saint prayer card with a relic. How awesome! One of the nuns (wish I could remember her name) said that we could put holy water in hot tea or any drink. Kevin and I had never heard of this. We both thought that using holy water in this fashion would have been considered to be sacrilegious. But it isn’t. That was pretty cool to find out. Plus, they suggested for me to stop by the Oratory to get a blessing before my surgery. I had called my priest at my parish so I could receive the Anointing of the Sick before my surgery but I haven’t heard anything from him for five days. Even though the nuns said to just drop by I am going to call the Oratory to make an appointment. I know that God led me to that Catholic book store. God is so good. We are all called to walk by faith, not by sight.
