As many of you know my sister has been battling Non hodkins lymphoma, and bone cancer several years.

I have always helped with projects raising money for cancer walks, bake sales etc. I guess I have been a bit more involved now. This morning my coworker texted me that a local bank is having their cancer bake sale today. She said the bank always counts on our group being their biggest supporter... fluffy it is a good feeling knowing we do help their bake sale be successful!

Liberacion,

God has lifted you high and poured out His graces upon you. God loves you very much. He has formed you into a noble.

"How blest are the poor in spirit: the reign of God is theirs.

"Blest too are the sorrowing; they shall be consoled.

"Blest are the lowly. they shall inherit the land.

"Blest are they who hunger and thirst for holiness; they shall have their fill.

" Blest are they who show mercy; mercy shall be theirs.

"Blest are the single -hearted for they shall see God.

"Blest too the peacemakers; they shall be called sons of God.

"Blest are those persecuted for holiness' sake; the reign of God is theirs.

"Blest are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of slander against you because of me.

Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is great in heaven;
they persecuted the prophets before you in the very same way.

Matthew 5:3-12

You are living the Beatitudes. The gifts of the Holy Spirit dwell within you, and each time you act on the deeds, the gifts are increased for you to succeed the deed. It is your shield, your armour. This is the way we climb the stairway to heaven.

I graciously will pray for you to achieve the works that has been planned. Your success is in using the gifts and trusting God.

Let us pray:

" Praise be the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who has bestowed on us in Christ every spiritual blessing in the heavens!

God chose us in Him before the world began, to be holy and blameless in His sight,

to be full of love; He likewise predestined us through Christ Jesus to be His adopted sons-

such was His will and pleasure- that all might praise the glorious favor He has bestowed on us in His beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Amen

Good deeds

My current supervisor organized a going away lunch for one of our 'pink ladies' and invited my old supervisor to the lunch at Red lobster. It was good to see Judy doing so well, she walked into the hospital in March thinking she had heart trouble only to find out she had leukemia and ended up staying in the hospital till late May .. Praise God she is doing better now. The good deed was my current supervisor buying all of our lunches today and basically allowing us a long lunch on company time..... rose

Good News......

I was able to reach out to a friend yesterday who had hurt me. I found it in my heart to forgive.

Truth be told, it was hurting me spiritually. I needed to make the contact in order for me to heal.

Just yesterday I heard that two Good Samaritans jumped into a cold bay to save an 84 year old lady who had lost control of her car.


She is in serious but stable condition. (at last report) One of the gentlemen interviewed said what they always seem to say: "I did what most people would do and didn't think about how dangerous....or how unsafe for me it was"

My mom loves St Thereserose too. Recently my Aunt was diagnosed with cancer and is dying from it. She lives far away from us- in Canada. This Aunt has been terribly hurt in life due to an unending a series of misfortunes and losses. She has been expressing anger toward many relatives and in general. My mom spent time in prayer for her a few nights ago. When my other Aunt went in to visit her the next day-- she was smiling for the first time! when my Aunt walked in and it was totally diffiernt how she was. My mom had been praying for emotional healing for her. It looks like God answered those prayers. Never underestimate the power of prayer!!! rose
