Prayer Answered

Thank you to those that prayed for Angie, she called my husband (her brother), today with the best news, after the scan they determined that she is only stage 1, not stage 3-4 as originally thought, and the tumor can be removed after initially being told it was inoperable.  Angie will be having surgery in the very near future and then ongoing treatment to make sure the cancer does not return, but the outlook now is extremely good for a full recovery.

Praise God.  Please continue to keep Angie in your prayers.

Thank you,

Prayer Most Urgently Needed

Please pray for my husband's sister, Angie, and her children and grandchildren.  Angie was diagnosed with lung cancer today, she has a large tumor which is inoperable and the cancer appears to have spread to her lymph nodes.  Angie's children are with her, but as you can imagine they are quite upset, as we all are. On Friday they will find out exactly what type of cancer it is and what the treatment plan will be.  For the time being Angie is resting at home.  This is such devastating news for the entire family.

Thank you for your prayers.

Glorious Gloomy Days

Our weather has been very overcast with drizzly light rain for the past several days, and I just love it.  The gloom of the day makes it feel cozy inside, a good time to eat soup, read a book, watch a Christmas movie and just be.
This is how it has looked outside for several days now, not cold, just gloomy and somehow so very pleasantly enjoyable.

Our Christmas tree, Dave and I picked it out last Monday evening.

Candlelight is so beautiful.

A cheery cup of earl grey tea, don't you just love how vibrant the poppies are on the cup and saucer?
Snuck a picture on my phone at the end of Mass this morning. We went to St. Peter's  where right before communion the altar lights are lit, it is always so pretty, and even more wonderful when it is gloomy outside. St. Peter's is a truly beautiful church that was built in the late 1800's.

The Holy Family.
