In The Lord's House

Sunday came and went again and our family was not at mass. At the end of the week we are tired. There is cleaning to be done and a project to be finished. Yet again, 9 AM mass didn't happen.

Then today my back is out {again} and I am piled in bed with an ice pack and a terrible attitude. Feeling limited in any way is a problem for me. I do not want to be in bed when I do not want to be in bed. I want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

And although I was not in the Lord's house this weekend he came to mine today. And he brought Maddie James.

Maddie is a 5 year old kindergartener and is friends with The Princess' "boyfriend". Our little friend's Mom asked us to pray for her last weekend after a sudden and devastating diagnosis of an inoperable, malignant brain tumor called DIPG. I can't even allow this little girl into my consciousness without tearing up and immediately wanting to hug and kiss my children endlessly until I'm certain they're whole and well.

The Lord brought her to me today as a reminder to get over myself. I am certain of that. I can just be the most rotten spoiled brat sometimes and sweet Maddie might not get the chance. I get it.

Please pray for Maddie. Perhaps if not for healing then for comfort and peace for her and her parents in the coming months. And if you need to get over yourself, too. Do it. ASAP.

I will definitely pray for maddie. Along with the 5 yr old, with bone cancer, I'm already praying for. Who knows what God will do?
