Fearless Friday

Today I am thankful for my husband's first paycheck in 15 months!

We are so blessed, we are going to make a special dinner tonight, and maybe we will even make a cake.

Or, better yet, Mom's famous banana cream pie!

Note: This is not my pie, rather an image found on an internet search!

A Prayer for Fathers:

St. Joseph, guardian of Jesus and chaste husband of Mary,
you passed your life in loving fulfillment of duty. You supported the holy
family of Nazareth with the work of your hands. Kindly protect those who
trustingly come to you. You know their aspirations, their hardships, their
hopes. They look to you because they know you will understand and protect them.
You too knew trial, labor and weariness. But amid the worries of material life
your soul was full of deep peace and sang out in true joy through intimacy with
God's Son entrusted to you and with Mary, his tender Mother. Assure those you
protect that they do not labor alone. Teach them to find Jesus near them and to
watch over him faithfully as you have done.

Pope John XXIII

Today I pray for all fathers and workers.

When I went to link to Fearless Friday, I saw the hostess, Angie put this up:

Also could you please pray for Randy.

He has the opportunity of working somewhere that could literally change our lives in so many ways.

Please pray for my sons Randan and Asher.

Please pray for Shaneah.

Please pray for me.

I don't want to go into details about anything.

God is into details and knows what is best.

So that is ALL that I ask my beloved ones (for that is what you are to me..LOVE), for God's will to be done in our lives. His will and His alone.....

Blessings and know that God calls you to my thoughts and prayers.....(sometimes by name..other times He brings to my mind no name, but a need)

If you would like to add your intentions, leave a comment with your prayer
request, I would be honored to pray for you. If you would rather email me
privately, my address is in the sidebar.

This post is linked with Fearless Friday. Stop by, pray for her intentions too, and let Angie know that Lily sent you :).

Thank you also for bringing my own prayers here means SO much for me...

I came over from Ginny's to say AMEN on that paycheck!! My husband lost his job three years ago last August. We put him back in college this past January at age 55.
Life is hard but God is keeping us in his hand.
Enjoy that pie!

Lily said...

Thanks for stopping by, nice to meet you, Terri. I will add your hubby to my prayers :)

I am thanking God for blessing your family with a paycheck.

Robin said...

Thank you for stopping in on my blog. I have no doubt that this eases your mind in a tremendous way. The economy is terrible and jobs are scarce, so this is a real blessing for your family. I know that there were heartfelt Amens all around your table tonight no matter how the dessert turned out!!!
