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

Mysterious Message

I didn't think I'd be back today, but I have a mystery to report.

I had a moment this morning to pray the rosary and I grabbed my basket of scapular supplies to sew while I prayed with this audio rosary. As I was searching for the right piece of brown thread, I pulled out this paper note. I have no idea where it came from, no idea whose handwriting this is. It appears to have been written on a piece of receipt type paper. But to find it on this morning...of Election Day...is rather, well, comforting...rather prophetic. His will will be done. At least by me, and my house.

If it is displeasing to you to serve the LORD, choose today whom you will serve, the gods your ancestors served beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose country you are dwelling. As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15


  1. Weird. Someone on twitter posted a link to How Can I Keep From Singing, so I have that stuck in my head which is good. Better than the news! If Love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing? That says it all for me---though I hope to have other things to sing about, too!

  2. What a lovely prayer for today, "Thy Will be done." It gives great peace. We'll be over at my in-laws watching the results. Or I will after I get back from taking my oldest to his gymnastics class. We've prayed our rosary today and offered up our other prayers and sacrifices. All there is to do now is to wait in joyful hope.

  3. All I know is, that's certainly not your handwriting!

  4. It is the perfect prayer. -- Rosemary

  5. That is awesome! I need to write myself those kinds of notes too and hide them so I can later find them. =)


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