It's blog give-away time!

To celebrate my 1000 blog posts, I am having a fun give away. Here's the rules. They are easy. I have so many blog friends who struggle with miscarriage, infertility and pregnancy frustrations(or crosses, depending on how much of a burden they become.) Tomorrow(or tonight), if you would, please pray and ask St. Therese to intercede for those ladies who carry this cross. Just one sincere, honest prayer. You can also offer up a suffering instead. Then report back and leave a comment here. My youngest will chose one comment(I will put them in a hat for her) and the winner will get to choose from the following items. You can choose either a fabric rosary case or chapel veil case(pick one). Then you can also choose one yard of the fabrics I have pictured(I will keep they winners personal info private). Why am I doing this? Well, because I can and also because the people who read this blog prayed for me during the lowest points of my life. I'm am rather fond of you people ;) Thank you for your prayers, your example, your wisdom and your strength. Now, go pray and hopefully get some cool things. That is the least I can do. God bless.

PICK ONE OF THESE:
Chapel Veil Case(chapel veil not included)

Rosary Case(rosary not included)


THEN ONE OF THESE:
Each of these prints is cotton, quilt quality fabric and you will get one yard of the one you pick.

I am all over this!!!! Praying for the girls, but I am also praying I win this blog give away!

Pick me! :) St. Therese is a great intercessor. Also Mother Teresa. I visited her convent in Tijuana and they told me that infertility was her specialty!

Most definitely prayers being offered. We will remember their intentions (and yours) during our Morning Prayer litany. When I read your request, I couldn't help thinking about St. Therese and her roses and then that lead me to Our Lady of Guadalupe and her roses in winter. I pray for roses and grace for these dear friends of yours.

Oh yay, and I am offering up control over my current situation and my infertility plan is now in God's hand and no longer in mine! :)

I have a great one! Tonight (about 2 hours ago) I was in the grocery store and I saw a little feller walking with his mom. I did a double take.

A couple of years ago I ran into an old friend that I had known when I was in high school. She had pictures at a photomaker that I was waiting for so we chatted for a bit. I had just one or two kids with me so I was happy to tell her we had five kids (at the time) but I was very surprised to find out she had none (she'd been married for a long time and came from a big family). I knew that her sister had adopted babies so I just made some assumptions that she had trouble and said some good prayers for her at adoration. Fast forward to tonight...

it was HER! Her little guy had an Asian look about him so I thought maybe he was her sister's baby so I lingered a little as I passed until I heard her say to him, "...come over here by Mama..." and I turned around and said, "Is he YOURS!" and I asked all the nosey questions about where he came from and how old he was when she got him...she's really hoping to get another baby soon so I will be sending more prayers for her so that HER "flower basket" can be FULL. She's a very loving lady and you can see that she's VERY proud of her beautiful little boy.

I have so much happiness for her and her family tonight!

I am probably too late, but I LOVE that Rosary fabric!!

I prayed to St. Therese after I read this the other night. I prayed for everyone suffering from infertility, of course, but having just lost my grandma, I also prayed that St. Therese would watch over her and take our prayers for the repose of her soul to the Lord. There were roses all around at her wake and at the funeral, and when everyone was picking flower arrangements to take home with them, my mom picked a dozen pink roses, which we had in the house all weekend. Who knows.. that might have been the Little Flower's sign to me that my prayers were heard!
