This entry is the inspiration Rose T. received after praying on a Fatima rosary for Blessings Go Round.
 
I have recently reconnected with Rose through Facebook (gotta love FB.) She was a great friend to me as a teen and gave me so much wisdom and inspiration. Though we were years apart in age, we got along like best friends. She was always happy and positive.
 
I know recently she has gone through many tests and yet is always positive and upbeat through it all. She is a truly blessed woman with a wonderful family. Here is her brief story in her own words:
 
“In the past 15 years I realized that we really don’t have control over our lives…life happens when you’re living each day thinking that things are fine and then something happens to make you realize life is so fragile.
 
Wishing for “things” and hoping for someone to get “better” if they’re sick used to be the “norm” and I’m sure it’s the “norm” for everyone.
 
I have realized since we don’t have control of our lives…we should just pray for strength and guidance and TURN the rest of it OVER ….. I find peace with the prayer…”trust in the lord with all your might lean not on your own understanding….acknowledge him in every way and he shall guide your path”
 
Thank you Rose for sharing with us your inspiring message. I too found my path and enlightenment later on in life. I guess sometimes you have to go through experiences to find the light.
 
Friends, I hope this entry inspires you to find your guidance and enlightenment. Have a blessed day!

Wet Pants

I received an email from my sister. You may have seen it before something about all the Susie’s in your life? Well I thought it was a cute way of illustrating a point. Give it a read. It’s sweet but the underlying message is significant and shows how you can be an instrument of peace and blessings for others. Have a blessed day!

With open eyes you will always see opportunities to help others. 🙂

************************************

Come with me to a third grade classroom….. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a  puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened.. It’s never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they’ll never speak to him again as long as he lives.

The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, ‘Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I’m dead meat.’

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.

As the teacher is walking toward him, a class mate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy’s lap.

The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, ‘Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!’

Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out….. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else – Susie.
 
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You’ve done enough, you klutz!’

Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, ‘You did that on purpose, didn’t you?’ Susie whispers back, ‘I wet my pants once too.’

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good..

Remember…..Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. Each and
everyone one of us is going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the
faith.

This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let’s continue to pray for one another.
 The Prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where  there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
 Amen.

I baked a cake yesterday. I mixed my batter, poured it in the pan and popped it in the oven. As soon as I closed the door it was done … Like I waved a magic wand! Do you believe me? Of course not.

As with most posts I like to include a little something to look at, usually that I made. Here were my 2010 Christmas cookies 🙂 A challenge to make in Portugal. Note to self – Bring more cookie cutters from NJ 🙂

This applies to our prayers and miracles. Miracles move at the speed of … well, miracles! 🙂 Sometime you are answered right away sometimes they take time.

I can assure you if you pray on something long enough there will be resolve. During your time of prayer you will have obstacles, questions and answers. This process will be leading to the miracles manifesting. We have to go through changes to live the miracle we seek. Just like the cake needs to bake. Changes are happening … liquid turning to fluffy solid … oozy batter becoming yummy cake.

You are becoming what you want by praying for it. You may kick and scream and not understand sometimes. Like physically working out, it hurts when you are out of shape but once you arrive to a healthy body, working out feels awesome. Your spirit is the same…. (which reminds me .. I need to get on that! Thanks Christmas cookies!)

Unfortunately for us, we have worldly desires that guide us to what we think we want, however it may not always be the best. Did you ever hear the phrase ‘Thank God for unanswered prayers?’ I’m sure if you look back on your life so many things have changed what you want to have, be, live like … and some of what you thought you wanted you may be super thankful that you never received. (Word up! I am proof of this.)

You are a constant project for God and the universe. He wants you to be the best you can be. You must sometimes be broken to learn the value of something or learn some other lessons before you are where you want to be. Have faith, because God wants you to be happy and have miracles manifest. Keep believing in yourself, and have faith that anything is possible.

After years and years of praying for what I thought I wanted … boy oh boy it was a lot of praying … One day I was inspired to give up my ‘ideas’ of what I wanted and pray for the most benevolent circumstances to have love, success and happiness. Pure happiness.

My heart knows what makes me happy. In fact, the base of who you as a person are, is your passion and your desires, right? So if I can’t find the words, or if my heart knows better than me what makes me happy, I asked it be delivered… and guess what … it was. In magnificent, glorious abundance. *So Blessed*

No I didn’t hit the mega millions 😉 But I did hit the lottery of life. Only one being out there for me and we were guided to each other. He, in his space was looking for the same. I opened my mind and spirit up to receiving the miracles and blessings as God wanted me to have the happiness I sought … without my specifics attached. The miracles manifested. Now my husband and I have the lives we both sought … It truly is nothing short of amazing.

If you can open your mind to putting what you truly ‘desire’  into your heart and spirit asking for your miracles, they will happen. Don’t be surprised if the miracles are more magnificent than you could have imagined! After all, this is the point … be limitless in what you ask. You will receive. When you ask for *specific blessings you limit yourself. God will work out the details. Focus on the big picture. Happiness? Love? Health? *What I mean about ‘specific’ is asking for  a man/woman with ‘x’ colored hair ‘x’ tall’ in ‘x’ shape with ‘x’ bank account ‘x’ education etc. Just ask for ‘your true love.’

Me and my Prince 🙂

To sum it up I asked > No one fulfilled > I asked why no one was giving me what I wanted > I was told what I was asking for was not good for me > I was redirected through enlightenment to request the bare bones, deepest desire of pure happiness and love.  No expectations, no fine print > Miracles manifested in more abundance than I could have asked for with my prior ‘small minded’ thinking. I brought to me through the divine my blessings. I had to be guided to him and him to me once I gave up the specifics.

The power of prayer is amazing. Pray for you, pray for your loved ones, pray for the world. Blessings Go Round has an initiative of praying on a rosary and passing it on to another person. Would you like to join Blessings Go Round the initiative? If you have gratitude for your blessing or need a little guidance on your path, you will benefit. If today is the day that YOU felt you needed to do something positive for your spirit, maybe it was no coincidence you read this 🙂 Please see this post (link below) to get the details. Ten rosary beads are out and about as soon as someone is done praying on it, and you are on the list, you will be sent a rosary. After you are done, send it to the next person … The power of prayer!

Thank you for stopping by and sharing in my blog. Have a most blessed day!

I had a deep meditation once. In fact it was my very first attempt at meditation on my own. I have always been the type of person to have a wandering mind, that’s why I normally don’t find the joy in reading other’s do since I can’t stay focused. Because of this I always thought I would never be able to meditate and clear my mind of everything… I thought it would be impossible since I am always thinking creatively and my mind doesn’t stop.

A friend of mine had given me a tip to envision myself filling up with water and that would put me in a state of calm and relaxation. I tried this technique and it didn’t work. I had to imagine something tangible… For me, what did the trick, was to imagine an all white room with white furniture and a big glass window where all you could see was blue sky and a hallway … I guess this is the hall way that led to my visions.

I have only told a few people of this meditation I had some five or more years ago. It actually was my first real, concentrated attempt at meditating. After so much prayer work (prayer being meditative in itself) I wanted to move to the next level and really get divine messages and a clear path.

I didn’t go into my meditation with any expectation, just to know what lied ahead of me and my purpose … Was that generally specific enough? LOL You know, nothing major 😉 Well anyway, I lied down on my couch and got comfortable and I think my hands were at my sides, legs straight. So it began…

Once (and almost immediately) I began to relax and let go, like a movie, it started in my mind. It was more vivid than a thought, more like a dream. Very intense like you are actually there… for those of you who have dreams that feel like they are really happening, this is exactly like how it felt, but I was not asleep. It was like an in between dream and waking state.

The vision started with me in a room. It was blacker than black. The room was a shack that looked like a one room rustic old cottage in the middle of the woods that had been there forever.

My senses were shut off from receiving anything. I realized I had a blindfold on and I must remove it. Once I removed the blindfold, the room was pitch black and I wandered in circles looking for a way out . Not frantically, more so like when you know where you are and looking for a light switch, like I was milling about in the room. The truly extraordinary thing that happened to me was that I knew, I felt, that I was not alone in this room. I felt that some entity was shadowing my steps. In circles I went and there was someone, something, there following me silently but keeping distance.  I finally found a door and stepped out.

It seemed to be 4 or 5am in the middle of barren woods.  Imposing trees without leaves bowed into each other, like a scene from a scary fairy tale. Without a clear path I walked through the woods. This entity followed me some steps behind.

A path began in front of me as there began to be some dawn in the woods. This beginning of a path was covered with boulders and down trees. Like a really rough path in the woods. I had to hurdle and go around all of these ‘obsicles’. The entity followed. The obstacles got smaller and less frequent.

As the path became more cleared of these obstacles and began to become more of a straighter path, now with rocks and smaller debris on it, the trees also became more full of life with leaves and the sun was out like early to mid morning. This entity walked behind me still and closer and closer it got.

The trees and forest became bushes and hedges, the path was now dirt and clear of troublesome rocks, twigs and was clean underfoot with the exception of pebbles. The entity was walking next to me … I felt it.

I had this feeling to look back as now I was out of the woods. I wanted to look back but also felt that it didn’t matter at the same time. I felt like ‘Why look back?’ But at the same time I felt I needed to. I looked behind me and saw nothing. A wall of black and at my heels, nothing. I was standing on the edge of absolutely nothing behind me. Nothing above me. Nothing below me. nothing behind me. The spot I stood in was the beginning on my path and with each step more path developed, but only as much as I was being shown. I could not see ahead of me toa great distance, I was being shownjust enough. I felt the entity was no longer there next to me but maybe, in me? It had disappeared. This was all so surreal … yet felt very real.

I looked forward again and began to walk. The path still dirt and clear with just what you’d expect to see on a dirt road, little pebbles and such. On either side of me was tall grasses that became shorter and shorter until they were about three feet high. At this point a paved path was laid before me and it felt like late morning. This path was made of brick paving stones with that criss-cross pattern (as in real life I love tile and stone floors with the different shapes and patterns).

This paved path was divine. I felt so good walking on it. Both sides as far as I can see was this tall grass blowing in the breeze. The grass began to get shorter. After being on this path a while, a snake slithered out in front of me … I had to stomp on it and kill it … it’s what I had to do. I killed the snake picked it up and cast it aside.

I walked some more and a bunny hopped out in front of me. I bent down, picked it up, and helped it to the other side. I felt that (this is crazy, but this is what I felt) ‘In life you will encounter obstacles and you must deal with some in one way and others in another way. ‘ This is what I felt once I opened my eyes about this encounter.

After I put the bunny aside and he happily hopped into the grass, I started to walk and looked up in front of me. The most magnificent rainbow was in the distance. Glorious and colorful with the sun in perhaps the eleven o’clock position in the sky.

That’s it.

I opened my eyes and tears were streaming down my face. I didn’t know I was crying until I opened my eyes or how long this vision was going on during the time of having it.

This was my life.

My entire life in a vision. Maybe the rainbow will be my 2 pm moment? Maybe the end of my life? I did not know. The rainbow was a promise that all will be joyous and my life will be enraptured in magnificence . I know this for sure. 

As for the entity. Was it Jesus? Was it God himself? All I can tell you is that I knew this entity was the source of all purpose, calm and guidance; and I had to find myself before anyone could help me. I have to find my own strength and path before I could receive assistance or a ‘reinforcemnt ‘ from any other source. I am connected now. I found my way. This spiritual enlightenment was beyond words.

It took me a few years to digest this and rationalize this meditation and vision. It still teaches me things as I look back and recollect it.

I never had heard of anything like this before or read about it. One day when I was visiting a friend in a store called ‘Angel’s Touch’ in NJ (now it is closed) a very spiritual lady and dear friend M’Linda Kula showed me this book with a drawing of Jesus standing in front of a black wall, like in my vision. I was like ‘OMG!!’ as you can imagine. I shuddered to see MY vision in print … This was exactly what I saw, the wall of blackness … nothingness…emptiness. He was showing people to go to him, he was the way or that (the black wall)was the alternative. Nothingness. Not hell, with fire and demons. Just nothing …. Wow. This was weird.

So, friends I know this was a really long post and I left out details because my vision was so radiant and detailed it could be a book. It lasted about forty five minutes I recall.

You can conclude what you will … but this is what happened. And by the way, I did go back to this vision few weeks ago as I was being challenged with issues and knew that the only place to find answers was on this path… on MY path. And the rainbow was not the end of my life. I will tell you about that vision in another post.

My ‘Blessings Go Round’ initiative strives to create a profound and hopefully life changing experience for those who participate. For those of you who read my blog for inspiration or to figure out your path, I hope the information I provide as well as the inspiring true life accounts of the individuals who prayed on the rosaries to be thought-provoking and instill more belief in you for faith, gives you personal strength and enlightenment in your daily life.

If you come from a place (in your mind/spirit) where you are so detached from spirituality, believing in a higher power, or that you have the power to have all that you want, then my blog may seem far-fetched and a nice little attempt to spread a religious message.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, ‘Blessings Go Round’ the initiative is about praying on a rosary obtained from the very ‘religious’ Fatima, Portugal. And yes, the prayers on the rosary are based in Catholicism. However, I am not here to ‘bible thump’ or preach through a religious perspective. I am just trying to make you aware of your inner voice, a higher power and that YOU have the power to bless. As I mentioned, what prayers and how you pray with the rosary are up to you.

If you find this as ‘mumbo jumbo’ this is not your time. If you are not open to receiving miracles or to think that you can create all your heart’s desires for you, your loved ones and the world around you, then this is not for you. I speak to those of faith, those with an open mind and those who are at a point where ‘something has to change’. I also speak to those who a aware of how true the words I write are and who are aware of the power of prayer… their prayers… therefore, the power to bless.

If you are a believer in the divine, God and the super energy that exists, then you do believe that this energy is in us. God exists in all of us. We and God are one. If this is true, then we have the power to bless. Have you been asked ‘please pray for me/my mom/my dad/my child (etc.) they are in need of a miracle’? Most of us have, at some point, been asked to pray. Even on the news during a tragic event they say to pray.  Why do you think this is? Because we have the power to bless.  As a sidenote: The act of prayer is not religious. It’s meditative and attaches you divine energy. Who you pray to and how you pray may or may not be attached to different religious beliefs.

You don’t have to be Jesus, or anyone anointed by any church as a saint, or even see with your eyes something tangible like turning water into wine or making the blind see, to know you are powerful. Your words, thoughts and actions all create energy that can be positive or negative. You are powerful. You can spread blessings.

A blessings in motion stays in motion! Keep the energy flowing and always give thanks and have gratitude for everything in your life. Pray on the positive. Invite joy, love and abundance to flow into you, through you and to those around you.

Pray for mankind that we may be at peace and for the Earth that there is always balance. Be the vessel for bliss through glorious blessings 🙂

Become a strong link in the chain of blessings … If you would like to join this initiative, please read the first post…and by all means read the entire blog too 🙂

Enjoy my artwork as you read. Life is Beautiful one of a kind belt buckle 🙂

I’m sitting in my backyard and it’s a brilliant day out. I have a lot to be thankful for.

The other day I was taking some notes about what to write about until we get some stories coming in from those who are praying on the Fatima rosaries (by the way, one has been sent out to the first person on the waiting list so far. Please see the first post and join us before the waiting list gets really long.)  I was thinking, usually, for those brought up in a strong religious or spiritual home, prayer is part of the daily routine. I however, was raised Catholic but never felt one with my religion because I don’t like how we are made to feel guilty, sin is bad and that was the word (no explanation really) and all the scandals in the church (which were sins, but excused) made me a bit sour. This is why I do not see myself as ‘religious’, however, the fact that Jesus is God’s son and Mary is his mother and so on is very strong with me and there is a God and the spirit of the universe is the reason for all existence and lives within each one of us. I always had a hard time accepting that the bible was written by man, and the translations that some used to preach it are all … well… and not to my taste; maybe one day I will find a church that I feel completely one with… one day. 

Through life I went never fully attaching to a spiritual or religious practice, until my early 30’s… I know I mentioned some of this before. When I had no where else to turn I started listening to my inner self and began to pray (my earlier post tells you the story). I learned the rosary and for a few years I just prayed and prayed … I guess I really had a lot of work to do to reattach ATTACH to spirit. There was lots of crying and trying to understand what am I supposed to do. The day I was inspired to pray for others was one of my biggest and most fulfilling moments. I realized that praying for others was MUCH more peaceful and gratifying than to keep asking for what I wanted. I mean, isn’t that usually the first instinct for those of us that don’t pray ‘Oh please God don’t let this happen to me … I need this … Please God deliver me that…etc.?’  The day I realized it wasn’t about me, it was about what can I do for others is when everything started to open up for me.

Praying for others as well as giving thanks and gratitude led me to a place that you cannot image before you get there becasue it’s hard to know it even exists. Many of you reading who are attached to spirit know what I mean. I know that everything will work out. I KNOW this. One way or another… everything will be fine. I have learned to see the brighter side of things more quickly… all because I pray for others, I know the universe and God give back to me what I’m giving it. If I am theere for others, I know someone will be there for me. If not a physical human, then God. I simply ask ‘Dear Lord, guide me to someone I can help today. I send out a random prayer and blessing to anyone in need. Please bless them with the most benevolent environment for their situation.’

Today just think about others. Once you take the focus off yourself, you have nothing to be stressed over. Once you give your thanks to God, if you believe in him, you know He will provide.  Stop stressing. Know in you heart you are doing the best you can. Give thanks for your blessings and pray for those in need… even if their need is for them to find their own path to gratitude and living in peace and joy. I know people who need to be prayed for, just for them to find their way to a spiritual path. We all know someone who needs to ‘find themselves.’

Pray for others, pray for yourself…. Do you want to join ‘Blessings Go Round’ the initiative? We are praying on rosaries I purchased in Fatima Portugal. These rosary beads will be making their way from person to person around the word. Please see my first post on how to join us. It’s free and this is a group effort to spread the love, joy and blessings. Grow strong with prayer and find your clear path through you and God.

Blessed Art Belt Buckle by Anna Pereira

My friends and family ask me .. ‘so what is your blog about’ or rather ‘what are you trying to achieve?’ The most humorous question I received was ‘so, how are you going to make money with that?’ … LOL … Make money … Funny how when we get an inspiration and go with it because we feel we need to do it … so many have seemingly odd questions to what you feel is completely natural. 

I was inspired to do this ‘blog’ because it is and initiative.  A ‘pay it forward or PRAY it forwad’ initiative if you will. This blog is only a means of spreading the initiative, not for being a blog in and of itself. Although, if you choose to be part of ‘Blessings Go Round’ the movement, activly participating or not, I hope blog content will be inspiring or at least entertaining to you. 🙂

This will be the chronicle of blessings and miracles that people around the world will experience through being a part of this initiative. I even find it hard saying ‘my’ initiative because I feel like my inspiration is not owned by me, I am merely the custodian for now, of this initiative.

Many people are inspired but don’t know how to put into action their inspiration. My inspiration came to me while driving in the car with my husband and I knew exactly what to do. I was driving through Portugal (my second home now) and said ‘when we go to Fatima I have to get 10 rosaries so people can pray on them and pass them on’ my husband (being my biggest fan and supporter) was like ‘of course honey’ (he’s awesome, BTW, and gets me) no questions asked, really… Just accepted it and then said it was a great idea (awww … love him!)

So there you have it. This blog is about  making miracles … because miracles are ‘money baby!’  After all, can money make you happy? Yes, but not always. Can miracles make you happy? Yes. Always.

If you would like to join the initiative or want to learn more, please read my first post:

https://blessingsgoround.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/introduction-to-blessings-go-round-how-to-receive-a-rosary-from-fatima/

What game was it that we played as kids … Person Place or Thing, right? When you described something and someone had to guess… Anyway I wanted to talk about God.

One of the big questions is ‘Who is God?’ ‘What does God look like?’ ‘Is God a man or woman?’ Isn’t that funny? I think these questions are so funny.  Isn’t that why we have Jesus? He is the son of God since God couldn’t be here in a physical human form. My idea of what God is, is not man or woman. We have given God a face in art, paintings and images so we as humans can associate ‘God’ to being an actual something. It’s too abstract to say God is energy… that God is in everything… every cell of everything everywhere. God is the essence of life. Even where nothing exists to the naked eye, something is there that will start life.

As well as starting life, things are kept in balance by God. God is an energy that creates. To create, things needs to be destroyed sometimes. To create a painting a white canvas is no longer a white canvas. If the earth didn’t change, dinosaurs would still be here. The earth is living and constantly evolving and we are here for just a blip. I don’t know what God has planned for this planet, solar system, universe or beyond. This is why Jesus was sent here to be the custodian of the people and earth. Filled with divine inspiration to help us be better people to each other and to this plant so God would be happy, proud and find us worthy enough to let us rent space on his divine creation for another day. To create a positive energy and balance among the humans, animals and plants. From God’s mouth to Jesus’ ears, he led the way for us to understand how to be worthy of taking care of this magnificent creation for the creator, God. Of course this is but one part of the role and relationship of how I see Jesus and God, others would sum up Jesus as ‘he died for our sins’ but I’m not getting into that right now.

So in short, my perspective of God is something as small as a nano-particle that if you divided it into a million bazillion pieces, God would still exist in it;  God is also bigger than our universe times a million bazillion.  Now I have a headache … LOL … I’m not smart enough to get so philosophical nor am I a physicist! Especially at 4:54 am ….

And a little more to think about, the most intelligent of the scientific community believed in God … no matter which direction you take your ‘worship’ or ‘faith’ in …all roads lead back to God. Check out http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/sciencefaith.html if you care to see the list of some rather famous peeps from the scientific community…

How are you feeling today? Grateful? Lost? Seeking your purpose? Are you looking for answers or to just spread positives vibes because YOU are so blessed and wish for the rest of mankind to feel as blessed as you? Would you like to join Blessings Go Round? We would love your energy to be part of the initiative 🙂 So as I always post the link back to my first post, here it is:

A Personal Interpretation of a Saint

Enjoy my original one of a kind art belt buckle with Mary and Jesus

I know many religions have Christian a roots but are so diverse but have one thing in common, Jesus being the way to salvation and heaven. I don’t study religion and as I said before not a fan of any one school of religion that I personally whole heartedly embrace in which I practice, but consider myself Catholic but more spiritual. I hope you catch my drift 🙂 It’s complicated… Anyway I know many religions who see Jesus as the savior do not accept saints or other ‘idols’ as part of what they worship because Jesus is the top banana and the only way. I agree that Jesus is the way to heaven but I also believe in saints and other important, at one time, mortals that have proven their divine gifts while on this earth as being part of a special circle of divinely blessed folks who are now Saints.

To explain myself, because I have found people who do not believe in saints and find it almost blasphemous to ‘worship’ anyone other than Jesus, here is how I break it down; Jesus is like the President and Saints are like the people directly under him who can get him the message for something specific. I can explain this as if it were a company. Jesus is the CEO and if you are having an issue with getting your products from a company you want to speak to the head of the logistics or warehouse division – because no one is helping you in customer service and the CEO can’t take every call that comes in. Get it? So I pray to certain saints for certain reasons (since they are the head of the division) and they can help to deliver my message or ‘understand’ my issue because it’s their job, so it gets resolved.

Also, I have discussed Mary (Jesus’ mother) with a few people and don’t really understand how some religions see Jesus as ‘the way’ but see Mary as almost a no one or her mother Anne. That kinda blows my mind since it’s Jesus’ mom and grandma, how can they not be holy and divine?

This is just a little brief way I try to explain what the role of a saint is or who they are when people don’t understand what they are, in my own personal way. Kind of basic and not meant to be over though, but by no means to understate the real life miracles and benevolence they have shown during their life on earth.

 Receive a rosary, pray and pass it on: https://blessingsgoround.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/introduction-to-blessings-go-round-how-to-receive-a-rosary-from-fatima/

I met an Angel … It was an Angelic intercession almost missed …

Enjoy another one of my Art Belt Buckles ... It's obvious where my inspiration comes from 🙂

I met an angel who delivered a message to me one day but didn’t realize it … until two or more years later. Here’s what happened; I used to work at a night club and this guy comes up to me and hands me something. I was very busy and never saw him before or recognized him from that evening. So he comes up to me and hands me something directly into the palm of my hand, I thought it was a tip so I was just like ‘Thanks’ and not to be rude I didn’t look at it right away. When I looked at what the guy gave me it was a little black prayer book and inside was written “Anna time for a career change – JC”  Did you just read that? You get it – right? I didn’t. I was like who the hell is JC and what right does he have to tell me what to do? (Terrible right?) At that time I was so far away from any type of faithfully inspired ritual like prayer or giving thanks or talking to God I didn’t even REALIZE what just happened.

A few years later around 2004, I was on the phone with a girlfriend of mine and we discussed religion and faith and spiritually regularly.  Although at the time I received this prayer book I didn’t know what it meant, I kept it – in my kitchen junk drawer… nice right? BUT I know where it was and it hit me like a hammer when I was talking to her on the phone! ‘OMG I have this book this guy gave me … be right back…’ I retrieved it and opened it. DUH it was SO OBVIOUS! All the hair on my body stood on end… JC; Jesus Christ. Weird right? I know …. Very strange. ‘That guy was an Angel delivering a message’ she said… and I knew it.

By this time I had already started praying several months before and as I flipped through the book I added a few more prayers to my daily routine. Now, I don’t know what I did with that book because I carried it with me everywhere. I think I left it in China on a business trip along with a dress… I need to remember to check the closet and drawers better… LOL. I miss that book. Maybe it was left to inspire someone else?? I would like to think that anyway.

So that’s my story, I was visited by an Angel and my point was, we all have a time when things come into our lives for a reason. I wasn’t ready back then, but when I was, it was waiting… my faith, my belief, my hope, my thanks and my blessings. They all came and will continue to come because I am ready. BTW, the story is true. I wish I still had the prayer book. It blows my mind … I have a few more stories I will post those soon that will blow your mind too.

Have a blessed day! Please join my initiative to spread love and blessings around the world… Read my first post and join us! The waiting list has started… Click this to go to the first post..
