Happy Christmas to you all!

This year I decided to make you, my dear friends, a virtual Christmas card rather than sending  Christmas cards abroad throughout the world. Partly this was for financial reasons and partly because I decided to make a small contribution to charity instead.

I created the card below on a bit of a whim and i’m surprised it worked out as well as it did. Please forgive the inferior photo quality, I recently sold my Nikon camera to pay some bills and i only have my old camera now. Hopefully you will still be able to enjoy this Bubblegum for the Brain picture I made for you.

Many, many thanks to all who continue to hold me and mine in your prayers, there have been some very dark days recently and your prayers and words of comfort and encouragement surely help me and mine, more than you or I will know on this side of Heaven.

May you all have a most wonderfully blessed Christmas and a peaceful and healthful 2010. Thank you so much for your continued friendship over the past year, and in fact for the 5.5 years I have been blogging thus far.

If you could, of your charity, please spare a prayer for the following intentions which have been left on the Prayer Page of my blog. There are many hurting people who are not so fortunate as we are.

I do so love you all.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated!”

I pray for intercession from you to Jesus Christ, to go to Rob and enter his heart and implore him to give me another chance. I pray every day, with faith.

Johnjoe writes…

“Please pray that we might all use the amazing educational resources we have – the internet, libraries, the school system, etc – to educate ourselves and get properly involved in the running of our country. I like Mr Obama….but I am a Republican….I can’t believe we let Bush Jnr get ourselves into Afghanistan and Iraq….what were we thinking….how many US and ROW solidiers have died….what about the civilians…..they aren’t combat people…how do they face that on a day to day basis….while we wake up to cheerios and fresh milk. Let us get the UN in…..we will support them with fire power……we just shouldn’t be leading this stuff…..the only reason for ourselves and the UK to be so front of shop is if we were trying to spyphon off the monies for ourselves….and that is not what we want to do….so let us support UN co-ordination of this war.”

Donna writes…

“Please, remember me in your prayers. Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I am a very sorry for anything and everything I have ever done or said to ruin my relationships. Forgive my sins. I am ashamed of myself. Stay with me and help me to accept life as it is now. I am alone, which is dearly not what I wanted. I lied yesterday. I told my ex-love yesterday I don’t want him to contact me anymore, but I didn’t mean it. I want him to get away from that young girl he is living with and come back to me. Please don’t let him marry her. I am asking this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen”

Joanna writes…

“I am going to pray for you because you have a beautiful blog site. I am Catholic too, but I don’t often see someone proclaim that openly on their website. And I’ll join in and pray for your other readers who have left a prayer request. Pray for me too, please. I need to find work. Thank you and God Bless”

Donna writes…

“I pray that Robert Paul  comes back to me and we put the past and all past hurts behind us and go forward anew. I want to spend the rest of my life with him, I love him so much. Let him be as open and honest with me as I am with him. Please, please fulfill the promises given, I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”

Dennis writes…

“Please Pray that my wife Marina Will come home before Xmas 2009.  Please Pray that she will change her mind and not ask to divoce or spreate but united with me forgeting all misunderstanding and what people has said lies about me. May her heart grow in Love for Jesus and Love in Me.”

    Dear Ukok,

    Feliz Navidad.

    If we had the Charity that is in your heart, and in your mind, and in the actions of your hands, we could steer clear of the fires of Hell.

    God be with you.

    I would like your permission to link your blog to my site, if you allow. It would be good for our viewers to find your treasures, that their souls be edified.

    With the assurance of my Holy Rosary prayers for all your good work in the vineyard of the Divine Master, I remain yours truly in Jesus and Mary Immaculate.
