St. Rita, Pray for Us!

This image of St. Rita is going to be on the façade of the altar in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at St. Rita's Shrine

A relic (which I believe is her skin)
        















So, here goes nothing, or everything -- it just depends on how you look at it.

I've been trying not to think about what may happen after this trigger shot. I have already convinced myself that it isn't going to work -- not the best way to look at things, I know.

I also don't think that it's a coincidence that I finished a novena to St. Maximilian Kolbe AND I'm finishing my consecration to Mary tomorrow.

No, I don't believe in coincidences. God-incidences, however, I believe in 150%.

I'm trying so hard to surrender my fear and trust.

I guess we'll see how I actually do in about two weeks.

St. Rita, St. Gianna, St. Gerard, Sts. Anne and Joachim, St. Jude, pray for us!!!

Post-trigger shot update: I couldn't use the HUGE needle that our Napro doctor gave us to do the shot, so Mr. JB and I used two of my regular HCG needles. It took multiple tries since I'm more than a little scared of needles, but it's done. Ouch!

  2. I've never had a trigger shot, but I can only imagine. (Then again, stories involving attempts to give myself shots are always good for a little comedy relief. :) )

    I will be praying for you in a special way on Friday...

    Hugs and every blessing!

  4. Even if it doesn't work, it will give you the peace of mind of knowing that you tried it...you know you won't look back and wonder "what if." I understand about convincing yourself it won't work...don't worry about finding the "best way" to look at things, sometimes it just comes down to survival, sometimes you need to guard your heart in order to survive.

    I'm convinced that since there are SO many prayers that have been said, whatever comes of this will be God's will, whether that's peace, closure, or a Baby Jellybelly!! I'm proud of you for kicking butt at the trigger shot. You are doing great at surrendering this to God, and I know He'll reward your faith in some way.

  5. PS, I've just been getting a feeling as I've been praying our novena...I feel like St. Rita's telling us she won't let us down. :) Something good is coming from this, I can feel it.
