I had to smile when I read in the comments box of my spouse journal post, a comment that Maggie Clitheroe had left (no not the actual Saint, but a saint in the making I don’t doubt). Well if ever there was a bizarre means of getting a guy, this has to rank somewhere near the top…and there I was thinking St. Joseph was all meek and mild!
For your amusement and encouragement:
“Have you heard the one about a girl who kept praying to St Joseph for a spouse? She prayed for many years to St. Joseph, then at last she got fed up with waiting so long, so she picked up the statue she had in her upstairs room, and chucked it out the window. A young man was passing by, and it fell on him. He gathered it up, and knocked on the door to return it to the owner. From thence a relationship blossomed, and they soon got married!
You could try throwing a statue or two around, must beat dating!
(This tale was related to me as a true story, anyone know if it is?)
I waited a long time for my husband, and when he first came along I didn’t look twice at him – he was 7 yrs younger than me – (I was busy chasing someone who eventually went off to be a priest, at the time – that was the story of my life then). Still, he was very persistent, and God let us know that we were meant to marry in so many ways, that after going out together for about 4 months we got engaged for 6 weeks, and got married on 25th March – Lady Day, and that’s coming up for 13 years ago.
If the Lord wants it to happen, I’m sure he’ll guide the right chap to you!
God Bless. “
