“Do not fear; only believe.”
– Jesus in Mark 5:36
And then this:
Pray, hope, and don’t worry.
Worry is useless.
God is merciful and will hear your prayer.
– St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Things have been happening all at once. Yesterday was no different. From a burial to a diagnosis, I was glad to be surrounded by family.
It looks like our five-year-old, despite the big scare from last week, will be OK. Their diagnosis, so far, is very treatable and positive. I’m keeping things rather quiet here about it, because I think I need to discern some more what to say and how to say it and whether to say it at all.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
Prayers continue for you, dear Sarah.
I often turn to a C.S. Lewis quote, too:
“Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted.”
Faith, hope, love … may you know them all today.
That’s a great C. S. Lewis quote. What is the source?
Always praying and loving you – and your family. AMEN to “ok”. I never thought OK would sound so heavenly!
Much love!!! Still lifting your SIL and whole family up in prayer!
Sarah, I’ve been reading your block daily for a few months now. I am finding wisdom and answers in your writings. I now know where to go for peace and solace.
I have latched onto “Our Lady of Prompt Succor” as there are events in my life and that of my family business, that require the aid of prompt attention. She has mercifully blessed us daily. We are making it from day to day, thanks to Our Lady of Prompt Succor.
You have been used by Her to foster this beautiful and little known devotion.
I’m relieved your baby daughter’s condition is treatable, but am praying for you and the family of your lost member. May God hold you all in the palm of his hand and wrap his loving presence abut you during this difficult time.
Sarah, we are keeping your family in our prayers.
Yup the prayers are still coming regardless if details are published. In other words, the third option of not saying anything at all is OK too. What works for your family is paramount.
Peace be with you!
So glad to hear you have found some peace re: your daughter’s health. Thank God! Still praying, of course!
I’m so happy you have a diagnosis for your daughter now. I know how nerve wracking it is to sit and wait for results.
Am repeating my offer to do research for you if you want it. I have had actual classes in searching Medline. Everything on your time and terms. Hugs and prayers to you.
