Saving Graces

new mercies each and every day

A new day

So another new day. I went to church with Ricarda and it was a mass for confirmation applicants. The applicants had prayers intentions that were handed out. I took a prayer intention written by one of the applicants. The applicant is asking for help with their faith, that’s what the prayer states. You know spreading the love and all that, I even have to light a candle when I say a prayer for the child.  Hmm must think up a prayer in my own words too. I forgot to ask when I can go for confession though. Maybe tomorrow at Opus Dei.

devout photoI went to basketball today. The ladies 4th is doomed, no other words fit, doomed. Then i went to an Einkehrabend at Heristal (Opus Dei) It was cool. The priest talked about following our stars and of the search of hearts; searching for love and happiness and how that brings us together and unites us and how we can achieve that by accepting the Lord and leading holy lives. We then had benediction and an examination of conscience and lets say ‘me’ is sadly lacking, I have been measured and found wanting. So I have decided (again) to try and do better…. we then had a talk from Frau Casanova (I have already forgotten her first name) She talked on holiness, what the pope’s message was, what St Josemaria message was, JP2 and whole lot of other references she had, and it was enlightening. So I am adding to my new years resolutions.

7. Become holier. How? by doing my best doing my duty to God serving other people and keeping the law.OK spouting the guide law here but that is the essence when we think of it. When I do my work real good and offer it as a prayer to God, then I am doing my best and doing my duty to Him, in this I serve other people and in whatever I do I try to keep the laws of God as well as the laws of men. Once a guide always a guide.

Today went well, better than in a long while. Smiles all around and all that. Coincidence you say. Bah say I. It is God showing himself to man.

8. Make God priority Numero Uno. as Frau C pointed out there are 1440 minutes in the day. How many do I give God…well it’s actually embarrassing that on some days practically none. and I like to call myself fromm, crayont… yeah right… so we are trying to increase that by some exponential factor. I hope that works. And they invited me to lunch on Sunday… yippee!!

…the story of my life. My diet fell out the window today. I ate chocolate and overate at supper,although i did increase water intake. So thank God for small favours. And my tooth may have to come out after going for more than 6 preparatories for a root canal; yaay my idea of fun. And extra Opus Dei information search is not going very well. I plan on visiting the centre tomorrow if I have time. And praying, well I’m not sure but leaning on the better side.

Life…

Just a life update. I have found more information on Opus Dei online and got contacts and where they are situated. Well I hope they are what my soul is searching for. I had a long chat with Dass (who is in Zim) that made a couple of things clear too. I do need a support group and I need it fast, what a breakthrough.

I have also decided to start rewriting Danté’s novel and I have finished putting the changes to the plot on paper and a couple of explosive scenes and some skeletons in dire need of flesh. And Emirates apparently has holidays till the 13 so I have to wait till then. Ouch and I spent an hour  and 15 min on the phone with Trbc who is in the UK… my phone bill 🙁 such is life.

My Friends…

Sie haben mich gern, wirklich!!! What can I say it’s great to find I do have friends here only problem being I am to leave this place soon. On Friday Stella sent me a message to go out and I did, it was fun we saw a movie, and today Violetta and I went spazieren and then to a café. Totally fun to have girlfriends to hang with again. And yesterday had a long talk with Dass about what she is planning to do and on our spirituality and all that stuff. A real long conversation. I live in fear of the phone bill. Here i am supposed to be sparsam but it just does not seem to be working that way at the moment. Just hope I get this job then the only monetary worries I will have will be getting the medicals done. Trbc just messaged me she wants to come to Germany skiing. OK so will call her soon and find out what that is all about. And Nessa called me too today, ’tis been a great weekend. It’s fab to have friends.
