The Chapel where I pray, at First Friday Adoration
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, everything in the universe, cry out: “To the one who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might, forever and ever.” Revelation 5:13
It has been a crazy couple of weeks. My parents have moved down to be near us. Currently they are in my house waiting for their place to be ready. I love having them here and I am grateful they decided to move closer. It is hard to watch your parents age, and I am happy to be closer where I can be there for them if they need me.

There is nothing you will need that I can’t provide when the time comes. Events are unfolding. Remember all passes through my hands. I am the complete and sovereign Almighty because I AM. Those who think they control will soon learn that they do not. I love you always.
This is about completely trusting God. Be thankful for everything and know the difference between a need and a want. Detach yourself from the material items. If you are struggling, know that God is your friend and go sit with Him awhile and pray. “Pray, hope, don’t worry.” – St. Padre Pio
