Faith

Been a while since I’ve written, and I do have to say that it’s honestly a form of therapy for me. Life is happening, good and bad. I find we are in a tough situation financially and health wise lately. Nothing so serious as some may battle so I definitely try not to complain as much.

It’s hard watching your children be sick. I think we’ve been battling a stomach bug more this year than ever before. So Pedialyte, Pedialyte popsicles, water, crackers, baked potatoes, caldos (Mexican soup), and manzanilla (chamomile) teas are life for us at the moment. So, if you’re reading this please send up a prayer of healing for our family.

We all go through struggles in life and it always seems hard to stay steadfast in our faith. It may even be harder when you’re feeling attacked through all aspects of your life such as; financials, health, love, family, anything really. You can try and try so hard to dig yourself up out of the sand but it just keeps piling back on. Don’t stop though. Keep going. So cliché right?

Do it anyhow. I have been getting down lately because it just seems never ending that something is always happening. My husband lost his job, we ran out of our savings, but we have 2 months of not having to worry about rent at the moment. Always and upside, right?  So, I want to try something my sister sent me earlier this year. May God bless her always.

I’m going to be praying for the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, to bring our problems to Jesus so that He may grant us the grace to continue on. There are many miracles associated with praying for help to God and praying for the intercession through the blessed Mother Mary and the saints.

So continue on. Fight the battle everyday and try not to dwell too much on the negatives that are going on. The devil loves when your attention is on him and not on God. Focus on Him so that the grace of God may be upon you.
