So much going on, news,news,news.

This weekend was frantic with work and planning. Mr. Thorn and I worked most of the day on Saturday and on through the night. Sunday we made it official, joining Sacred Heart Parish and planning the littlest Thorn's first communion. It brought some relief and hope. I was in need of both those things so it felt good to move forward. My parents are also members too and we feel so much at ease there and feel good about supporting the parish with our time and money.
Today I went to my doctor and found that this brilliant man may have to stop practising medicine which filled me with doom(something I don't need right now). This is all over the licensing board not wanting him to practice anything "alternative". Dumb Nazis. Sorry but this man has been blessed by God with his intellect and ability and gives credit to God for so much. He just doesn't fit their mold so they want him gone. I did get a treatment and got to chat with him for a bit. As I said though, it is sad indeed.
Next, we got word back about our adoption process which we have officially begun. I have no idea where it will lead or how we will afford it but I place that in God's hands. We want to be open to whatever life(old, young, special needs, our own) God brings us. So much is whizzing about us it is scary as heck and exciting. I suppose that is what happens when you let God move you about.
There is much going on with the planning for our future but oddly enough we are just kind of placing things and discussing. I'm waiting on God for the final "thumbs up" on so much in my life. Right now, I'm trying to stay on my supplements and food plan to get my dang self healthy. I also need to make an appointment with Dr. Mattingly in OH. I've been getting back into Creighton and it feels normal. I'm not too worried about the peak and such because we won't even try until we feel it's time. I still get weepy over the babies some days. It gets hard when I think of babies and empty arms or I get the irritating mail and coupons for the babies that are no more. I have been doing better though. It takes a "trigger" now to upset me where before it came out of no where. My mind would wonder and boom...I thought of how I missed them and cried. I want to make sure Mr. Thorn and I go to a shrine in Florida to pray and visit. I will need to see what is on our route or close to where we are staying.
I prayed so much for my Catholic blog friends this weekend, dealing with miscarriage and infertility. I hope, I hope, God hears our cries. I need to focus on Him and on what's important so I don't get feeling as doomed as doomed can be over the looming Socialist States of America. Sometimes, if you don't back away your brain will explode. I didn't even watch the "We're doomed, everybody run!" speech at 8pm tonight. I was sewing and singing in my studio. Ha. So there. With so much chaos, I need to be thankful for jobs, money, faith, food and family(although not in that order) Do we have a choice? I think not.

I'm glad to hear things are looking up! Except about your doctor.. that is too bad. I didn't watch the speech either. I'm sure my blood pressure rises the more I listen to that man speak. I get so stressed just hearing his voice!

I am excited that you are putting it all in God's hands! That reminded me that I need to do that more.. just sit back and see what God has in store.

Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish. My family has attended there (a true refugee parish) for over 16 years. We are blessed to have your family worship with ours.

Many Blessings to you! Fiat voluntas tua! When we give our will over to God's, MARVELOUS things happen! I'm praying for you.

I'm so glad you're doing better! I hope everything works out with your doctor. And I'm so excited for you about the adoption! I'm eager to see where God leads you, and I'll be praying for you!

Thorn-I can't believe you missed barack my rock! ;) Yes, I didn't watch it either.

Happy you found a church to rest your soul! The post before this I love Jesus, but drink a little had me on the floor laughing! It was so funny!

I wanted to ask you what you mean by a modified serger stitch. Do you know the name of the stitch?
