I just want to say a special thank you to all those who have prayed, are praying, and those who will continue to pray for me and my family.
Whenever a doubt creeps up, something is said that puts everything back in place. Have I ever mentioned that I love Catholic radio?
I love Catholic radio.
There... I said it.
I missed RCIA last week but I'm looking forward to going back tonight. Finally getting it out to my family was a good move because I don't have to "hide" it anymore and I feel I can freely continue to pursue God's will for my life.
I just started Chapter 18 in "Catholicism and Fundamentalism". What a great book! It's taking me forever to get through it with school and work and church and kids and... and... but every time I pick it up, I don't want to put it down!
I wrote an email to my parents yesterday and sent a couple of links from Renewal Ministries' "Food for the Journey" program. I wanted them to see that I'm not falling into something whacked and heretical... that this whole thing is about God... not the Pope, not Mary, not legalism... or any other imaginable thing. It is ALL about God and I wanted them to see that Catholics believe this no less than they do.
I hope they will keep their hearts open.
On another note, please keep my sister and her husband in your prayers... The birthmother, who convinced them she was 100% sure about her choice, backed out of the adoption.
Sister and husband - peace and strength
Deanna's husband - health
Parents - understanding
Self - motivation, patience, peace
