Yesterday I went to church. I needed to. The last time I went to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, I realized that this was Her place, and yesterday I needed to be enveloped by Her. And literally, She surrounds you as you sit in silent prayer. She didn't let me down. I've wanted to go to church for awhile now, but my job was draining me so badly that most of the times I could barely dress myself on the weekends. After the service I snapped some pictures of Her to share with you.
This statue is enclosed in a glass case. I didn't realize it at the time, but the reflection on the church was shining on the glass. It's too bad because she is truly beautiful.
I bought the following statue of Our Lady of Lourdes at their gift shop yesterday and worked her energies in a healing vigil last night.
Well, I will soon be off to have my biopsy done. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared. Truth be told, I am more frightened of the possible results than I am the procedure...but I am going into this thinking positive. Please keep me in your thoughts today.
