Prayer for Safe Travels
« on: November 20, 2011, 02:46:50 AM »
In a few hours time (07:00 EST) my boyfriend and I are going to begin driving from New Jersey to his family's home in South Carolina. (About a 12 hour drive.) I would ask that you would pray for safe travels, and also that all goes well this week. This will be the first time I am meeting his extended family, so butterflies have taken up residence in my belly. ;)

Also, please pray for him (Jon), as he has his own amount of family baggage to deal with through the holidays. (Who doesn't?!)

Thanks so much, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my US buddies! :)

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Kyrie, eleison

Please grant Jon and your handmaiden a safe and rewarding visit to South Carolina.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
