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!

Here are the rosaries! As this being my second post there are two things I wanted to include; First, a close up of the 10 rosaries that I have and will send out; Second, … We have swallows! Rosary beads from Fatima Portugal; Blessings Go Round

Okay, I’ll tell you about my magnificent little creatures first. In our community here in Portugal, there are a few properties for sale and not maintained. Aside from uncut grass, debris and a poorly maintained vacant property, the big deal is the half full swimming pools. A haven for mosquitoes. I hate mosquitoes … and flies. I don’t like getting bit, nor do I like the fact that they carry diseases for us and our pets. I really, really was dreading them on a walk the other day with my husband and dog. The next day I woke up to find swallows nesting on the side of my house! What a splendid blessing we received! Just another way He has solved one of my problems in His own way. I complain about bugs, I get bug catchers! See how blessings work? It’s not what you ask for it’s how what you ask for gets delivered to you and you realizing the magnificence in the blessing. Here is a photo of my swallow working on his nest:

Here are the ten rosaries. Nothing fancy, but they are all pretty and each different. A side note; I have received only 1 request so far. I am a bit surprised that this is going slowly. Maybe people don’t need blessings? Maybe people don’t know who other than themselves to pray for so they are blessed? Maybe there is a lack of faith out there?? (I really hope not) I’m not sure … I would have jumped at the opportunity myself if I had seen this proposition somewhere. Well, as You who read this and really do ‘believe’ and have faith, you are the ones I am speaking too. I know you will step forward and be a part of this and share your miraculous stories as they happen.
