Heart thread - 12/08/2009

Let us give thanks: Mother Sandra is in her own home again.
Dear friends and prayer partners,

A week short of 3 months I joyfully walked into my home, Thursday, Dec 5. I am still using a walker but I am getting up w/o assistance and can walk about 50 feet before I rest.

...

I will be always grateful to all of you for your many kindnesses. I am convinced that your constant prayers allowed me to remain calm and patient over the weeks so my body could heal. I ask that you please continue your prayers for a healthy closure of the wound.

Blessings to each of you as you explore in faith during this Advent Season.

Vaya con Dios,
Sandra
Continuing prayers for her healing!

Nineteen years ago today I was ordained a priest by the Rt Rev William E Swing in Grace Cathedral, San Francisco. It was possibly the calmest day of my life with lots that needed to happen but utter peace.

Thanks, dear. I thought priests were supposed to read entrails, not cud. I missed the cud reading class altogether! There must be a continuing ed course for that.
