Beloved Michael: my patron--I thank God for you!


« on: December 28, 2010, 07:27:43 AM »

First, I wanted to thank everyone here for their constant love, encouragement and prayers during my many infinite ramblings throughout my time here--I'm very blessed and fortunate!

How very beautiful and good is our God, for it is by His Will that our 2011 is going to begin with a baptism:  8 of them as a matter of fact and all on the same day!  This coming Saturday (January 1st), myself as well as a family of 7 (3 children under 10 I believe, a 3 y.o. and an almost 1 y.o.). 

I would like to humbly ask for your prayers as this weekend fast approaches for all 8 of us, as well as for when we receive the Body and Blood of Christ for the very first time the next day.

I've waited for this for what feels like a forever and the fear and excitement keeps building, sometimes it makes me shake.  Thank you so much!

Thank you everyone for your love and prayers!  I come bearing pictures of today if any wish to see them.  It was by triple immersion so everyone got quote unquote 'dunked'.  (NOTE: I apologize for the size:  I did try and edit them the best I could in Picasa so I hope I don't scare everyone  Tongue)
