Make yourself familiar
with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen they are present with you.

Update About That Weight
The past few weeks have been a plus then a loss; a .8 gain the week before with a 1.8 loss this week. All in all its working and quite nicely I'm pleased to report. I'm at about 12 weeks with a 16 pound loss. I do find I have been allowing myself to indulge a bit (sometimes a lot) following the weigh in which I should probably cut out but it does seems to make this so, so easy. The best part, I'm moving easier. Its feels great. Clothes are fitting, some of which I wasn't able to wear.
Talk about moving, three of us did a 5K walk last night! That's 3.1 miles. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it but completed it without a hitch. I was thrilled. Today at the Weight Watcher's meeting we'll get our charm for completion! Does that sound silly ... maybe, but I'm tickled pink to get my charm. Saw my cardiologist the other day ... as soon as he saw me he said "you've lost weight" ... we think I can get off some of my meds with a little more loss. That's super big news and something big to aim for.
Changing gears completely here, have had a lot of difficulty with blogger as of late so I'm not sure what of this post will be visible if any of it. If this does post, wishing you all a wonderful, full of blessings, joy and all good things weekend.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's Prayer for Spiritual Adoption
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the preborn child that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.
Glory of The Season
Almighty God, Father of all nations, For freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus. We praise you and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, The foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good. Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties; By your grace may we have the courage to defend them, For ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land. We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, And in the name of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, In the unity of the Holy Spirit, With whom you live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is special ...
Today is God's gift to you, how you use it is your gift to God
Before the Threshold of My Day
I've much to do today, dear Lord, But let me kneel a bit Before the threshold of my day That I may enter it With mind serene and heart made fresh with fragrant heavenly dew. That every moment of the day I'll be reflecting you.
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way
Let this knowledge settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance,
praise and love. It is there for each and
every one of us.
