A place to make a mental note of the Graces each day, and help put things into perspective. Coincidence, I know not. Share yours too!
Monday 3/16/09 Baby Grace – posted in main blog. Still makes me smile.
Thursday 3/19/09 Lainie calls to step up and make an offer I can’t refuse, for the good of us all.
Saturday 3/20/09 Visiting nurse reinstated and comes to help guide me with the new wound and drain care.
Sunday 3/22/09 DIF Feranando being there to open the tabernacle for me to bring Holy Communion to Jeff.
I wanted to stay downstairs and finish as much as possible of the session “in Spanish” and of the retreat discussion with Barb. But when I got upstairs I realized there was no way to retrieve the Blessed Sacrament from the Main Sanctuary without possibly causing some scandal. Although a minister to the sick can retrieve Him from the Tabernacle, you want to use discretion and not make people think Jesus is a “to go” item…so what to do? I began to get flustered at myself.
I stopped myself mid “flust” and realized I had been praying all morning, Grace sufficient unto this day Lord. If I can’t take You home now, I’ll come back out this afternoon…then as I entered the Sanctuary, DIF Fernando was turning on lights. I asked him for a favor to lead me down and remove the Blessed Sacrament for me to take, he said sure with very little in way of explanation and I brought the Blessed Sacrament home to Jeff.
He is feeling rather tired and a little out of sorts today. So I told him intended jokingly, Jesus really wanted to come home to you today. Then I thought about it and I think He really did!
3/23 into 24 having the appointment with Dr. D for the am. The volunteer who got us the great wheel chair when Jeff couldn’t make it back up to Dr. D’s office.
3/25 Jeff’s rebounding, Anna
