Wednesday Prayers: Potluck Edition

These odds and ends are in my prayers this week:
  • Mr. M might have fractured his hand. He's getting an x-ray now. He whacked the bejesus out of it a couple weeks ago, and finally went to the doctor today.
  • An article in our local paper let us know that Mr. M's employer plans to cut a number of jobs. Of the kind of employee that Mr. M is. They'll decide at the end of June. For the fiscal year starting July 1.
  • One the other hand, there was a beautiful heron hanging out by a local pond yesterday, saw it twice. Felt very grateful for the privilege of watching it get dinner.
  • I'm taking one major unbloggable situation and, at least for this week, shutting out all outside information, and just praying about it. It's been incredibly helpful. Among other things, I'm knowing God in ways that never occurred to me.
Despite some pretty big stressors, I'm doing really well. I'm grateful for all the prayers, and I'm feeling a good bit of peace. Thanks, friends.

And you? What's your motley casserole of prayers this week?


  1. Guidance for the days and weeks leading up to the move, now that I am home from all the travels....Balancing peace and efficiency, and trying to remember the gem of today's Morning Prayer/lectio from Psalm 35 (I think): Take delight in Sophia, and she will give you the desires of your heart.

    Love and prayers for the unbloggable discernment, and so glad that there are graces in the process.

  2. Laura, moves can be such a trial-- even across-town, and into a house you're thrilled about. Praying that the joy exceeds the frustration.

    And thanks to both of you!


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
-Saint Molly Ivins
