Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

With God, All Things are Possible


Jesus looked at them and said,
"For human beings this is impossible,
but for God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

A week ago I shipped a rosary order to a very nice lady down in Texas. A few days later I received the nicest e-mail from her. I want to share it here, with her permission, because it is such a wonderful testament to what God will do for us when we place our faith in Him.

"I have to tell you, I had had a particularly rough day, helping a friend go through testing for breast cancer. I have not had a great relationship with my father and actually had no contact in three years. I believed he had passed. After holding your rosaries, even though I was emotionally exhausted, I really felt this determination. I made a phone call, which led to phone calls and, Praise God, my father and I talked for an hour and 27 minutes. He is very ill, but the last thing we spoke was I love you and forgive you. He told me he felt like he wasn't going to be around much longer. Then I told him that if the Lord decided to take (him) tonight, I did not want him to leave with this burden, but in peace, knowing I had no ill will for him. Though we are both imperfect and there have been a lot of disappointment and angry words, I am loved by my father and he knows I love him. What a burden lifted from my heart. God is amazing!"



  1. God IS amazing.

    I just love stories like this, so thank you for sharing it.

    PS. I also love your rosaries, by the way. The one you have on your sidebar is absolutely beautiful.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
