Can you hear me giggling with excitement over here? Well believe me, I am!
I am so excited to get to participate in Summer Prayer Buddies this time around...this is my first time joining in since I just discovered the wide world of Catholic infertile bloggers during Lent!
I think it will be very cool to focus a special part of my prayer time on this particular person to whom I've been assigned. I do want people to know that there are lots (40 is lots to me!) of people who read my blog. Most of you, I don't even know! There are Catholics, Protestants, non-believers too who have taken the time to follow Mary Grace's story. I have always spent my time praying for all of you! I do not discriminate in my prayers. I pray for all couples who are experiencing infertility or pregnancy loss. I pray for people who have not experienced any of this. I pray for those who have gone on to get pregnant; that their pregnancies would be successful and their children a tremendous blessing to them! I lift you up at Communion, I offer up little sacrifices here and there throughout my day for you...If you read my blog, know that I have prayed, am praying and will continue to pray for you! I pray for readers past, present and future....in whatever situation you are in.
Do you know why you are special to me?? Because some how...one way or another, God brought you to this blog! God wanted you to be a part of Mary Grace's story, and that touches a mother's heart in a simple but deep way.
I am Catholic and my viewpoint is that of a Catholic! Being a Catholic Christian shapes how I see and interact in the world. I will not apologize for that. There are many who will disagree with my viewpoint! That is okay. I am still praying for you regardless of the issues upon which we disagree.
With that being said, I have added a "Welcome! I'm a Catholic!" disclaimer to my page (hey, just in case you didn't already know). I think free speech is important on my blog as well as in the comment section; however I do ask that we be respectful of everyone.
Lord, I ask that You send Your Spirit in a special way to those who read this blog. Please bless us our hearts and help us be conscious of the words we speak/type that they may be charitable and full of love. Please open our hearts to both give and receive Your love in every situation; even those which seem most difficult to us at the time.
