Fearless Friday: Friendship

Today, I would like to pray for friends. Friends and friendship make life sweeter.  I have a bunch of wonderful friends, internet friends, real-life friends, people who help brighten my days. I would like to remember all of my friends in prayer today whether sick or healthy, whether friend or acquaintance, whether real-life or internet, I will be praying for all of you today.

A Wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow

For sunlight after showers—

Miles and miles of Irish smiles

For golden happy hours—

Shamrocks at your doorway

For luck and laughter too,

And a host of friends that never ends

Each day your whole life through!

An Irish Prayer

May God give you...

For every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.

May God bless all of you, and in a special way I wish to recall Sweet Mary and Debbie to mind today.  They are both struggling with cancer, and need extra prayers of love, support and strength today and in the coming weeks.

So true, Lily! Friendship certainly does make life sweeter and bearing difficulties a little easier.

Prayers ascending for Mary and Debbie. May God be with them and heal them, if it be His holy will.

Thank you beautiful sister...It's a blessing to have my sisters of faith stand with me this Fearless Friday....

It's been a hard week spiritually with the knowledge that our priest has gone on a sabbatical.

It's just plain hard being at our parish to be honest with I appreciate your prayers and your love and your support.
