This One is For Me...

A few days ago I opened up a little bit about a major decision that our family had to make. I didn't share many details because I was still doubting and not TRUSTING in God. I am not a very trusting person so it overwhelmed me at the amount of prayers and support people generously gave me. Not even knowing what decision Tony and I had to make people just said "I am praying for you" My poor dear mother thought we were moving out of state and requested some more details and the more I opened up about it the more I realized the answer was there in my face all along and all I had to do was TRUST as Jan said. So today this blog is for me! I hate change...but it has become apparent that our family needs to move on from our current parish to another one the same distance from our home. We originally chose our parish for the small size appeal and friendly attitude. At the time reverence and respect for the Eucharist was farthest from our mind...truthfully we were just seeking something easy to check off the box that stated yup I went this Sunday... Easy in and easy out... My husband never fully committed himself to getting involved. Recently our family has expressed a desire for more...my brother in law composed a song"more Jesus" by Brian Whitscell I don't know how to link it but it is a fantastic song about needing Jesus! Our family was needing more and God led us to a parish that is just as amazing as our old one and it offers unlimited amount of opportunities to worship, adore, and rejoice in the Blessed Sacrament! So we make the transition and although I am scared and worried I am following the advice of one wise woman " just trust..." and I am thinking of a song I used to sing as a child " make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold"
Thank you to everyone that has prayed for our family!!!!
We are excited to embark on this new journey.
