Beautiful, Janis!
I will go and fill these in now. Then, you can check them and see if they are all right, and how you would like them.

Some are similar to some we have down already (like the addictions one), I will add your specific parts to the ones already there.

Maybe some day cj, I will get the hang of it and not make it harder for you, DEE or whoever else helps with the petitions. Here are mine. And, I will be looking to see if one of you placed them where they should be. I'm sorry that I don't know how.

Janis's Petitions: (Please enter them how you see fit, and if some were written up like mine, then it's already there, and if a few mor words be added to another, that is suffici
Thient enough for me. God knows our prayer.
1( For the many I've promised to pray for, all Family, Relatives, Friends & Acquaintances for their healing & blessings in mind, body & spirit, that they will draw closer to God.

2) For those who are recovering alcoholics & addicts, that they will find peace & harmony in recovery.

3) For those who do not see the horrific sin in abortion, that their eyes will be opened & they will develop a conscience to the sin.

4) That God will be overlooking the upcoming election next month and that He will guide the minds & consciences of our elected Leaders.

5) For those we know who suffer with depression, alcohol and/or drugs that God will give them the Grace, courage & strength to learn to face and deal with them.

6) Forthose who have fallen away from their Catholic faith, or even their faith in God that they will find their way back to Him.

7) For the people who are very liberal ( I know quite a few Catholics who are, and they don't pay any attention to the abortion issue) for the Religious, Priests and other hierarchy as well as anyone who is very liberal, that God will touch their soul to help them see the deep evil of abortion and that they will stand up against abortion.

8) For those struggling & suffering with a terminal illness that God will bless them in mind, body & spirit.

9) For those who don't see the sin in using God's name in vain, that they will come to see the sin and change their way in respecting the name of God and His Son, Jesus.

These are my petitions.
Sincerely, Janis emoticon

What a cool idea! Sometimes, I pray, "Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to CHOOSE to not eat something right now, and bless those who do not have the choice to be hungry, but who endure it all too often."


cj
edited to add (eta) - I was just reading something about emotional eating today, and apparently (I am going to check this out for me), when we imagine ourselves having a snack, our body thinks we have had some of it already. So, we can combine prayer with a bit of imagination, and perhaps we will have a fighting chance against cravings or temptations to binge eat.

anyone out there have "prayer snacks"? We eat a snack when we get physically hungry or have a hunger for something else.

A lot of us eat for mental or emotional reasons. what we are really hungry for is for comfort or stress relief. so instead of something sugary or fatty we should instead be maybe having a "prayer snack". even if we think we are hungry, maybe a quick prayer might be a better idea.

Don't forget to be awesome.

edited to add - I forgot to mention that with the rosary novena, for the mysteries, we go in the order of Jesus' life, so we begin with the Joyful, then Luminous, then Sorrowful, and end with the Glorious.

We then repeat those 4 over and over until the 54 days are up.

It doesn't matter what the mysteries are for that "day" (ie. Monday or whatever), we continue to go in the order of J, L, S, G. I hope that answers your question.

And the actual novena thread will be added by myself or Leah (CATHOLICCORGI) before Sunday.

To all you very dear sweet Women who do so many beautiful things to help us grow in our Catholic faith, I do not have my list together yet. I've been gone these last two days, and did not get home until evening. I hope to get my intentions list together between tomorrow and early Saturday.

We had another beautiful day in Upper Michigan. It's 47 degrees as I write this. It was somewhere in the 70's today. It felt very warm, but a comfortable warm for us Northerners. It was foggy when I left home shortly after 10 this morning.
I had one of my very favorite salads at Culvers today. I had the Grilled Chicken-cranberry bleu (some bacon in the salad as well) with the sesame ginger dressing. I'm very happy that I've been able to cut back on sodium. I never use the whole packet of dressing anymore. I probably used 70 -75%. That's a big change for me. Do you have the impression that I love food? I do, but I have managed by the Grace of God to use the nutrition tracker every day and most days I exercise 20-30 minutes. I just love Spark People and what it has done for me. The last time I weighed what I weigh now was in January of 1998. In all the time I spent with TOPS, from June 2007 to November of 2011, my lowest weight was 130, and I started at 146. I also started at 146 in February of this year. I never had the motivation with TOPS that I've had with SP. I'm so grateful to God. I really feel I've had a spiritual awakening here. It all came about because of a Team Leader from "I Can't Do This On My Own". On February 4th of this year she called me and taught me how to use the food tracker. She's taught me other things too. It motivated me on that day that I began exercising, and I actually love to exercise now. It has taken away my arthritic discomfort. God has blest me in abundance!
I feel so blest to have this Team to pray with. All that is good that has happened to me has come through God in His goodness & Grace.
I just wanted to share these good things with you, as I realize I would not be doing this well if I had not been introduced to SP. It took over a year and 5 months before I really got serious on SP.
emoticon , God!
I know a number of Catholic Critters or their Family members have serious health issues, and I pray for all the Team. I'm grateful for your prayers too.
I will get my intentions together (hopefully before this Novena starts up on the 7th. I will have to have someone put it in its proper spot. This girl does not know how to copy & paste.
I hope each of you are having a good evening. I'm hoping and praying this Presidential Debate goes well. God help us we pray emoticon Janis

How the thread this morning reminds me of Friday's Scripture reading... a time for everything under the heavens...
I will remember the Giroux family. I also will give thanks for the pregnancy's and births.
Life ebbs and flows, all the while under the watchful care of our guardian angels, and everything under God's love and protection. We ARE loved.
May we have a day full of grace, and may we be aware and thankful for our guardian angels on their day to be remembered.
Peace be with you!

CHPRBYTHEDOZN - Congratulations on your pregnancy! I wish you all the best, and pray that it continues to progress well. My good friend is expecting again. We figured out that this is her 11th pregnancy, when we count her children and her miscarriages.

And I, too, will pray for the Giroux family. Shall I add them to the next Rosary Novena?

Dear CHEPRBYTHEDOZN,
I will definitely keep the Giroux Family in my prayers. How horrible what they're going through. I think CPS does many things wrong, and that is one of them. When they should be helping someone, many times they aren't. I really feel in my heart & soul for this Family. They are in my prayers and will be kept there, and so are you and your Family.
With many emoticon prayers, Janis

Hi!! haven't been here in awhile...
all is well at our house. We have been blessed again with another (so far ) healthy pregnancy. I"m nearly 12 weeks ,feeling nauseous thru the day/night and THRILLED to be so honored by our God that I should be a part of another new life. This is our 12th baby(not counting the 2 who are already at Jesus' feet) so I had to change my username. (was 11 sprouts).
PLEASE keep the Giroux family in your prayers. She was the 5th grade teacher for my now 8th grader. In August, she and her hubby woke to find their 4 yr old daughter had died in her sleep. Two weeks later, with not any time to grieve, CPS showed up at their door saying that their daughter's death was ruled suspicious or something(cannot remember the word) and they were taking their 8 yr old son. He's still out of the house-they're fighting this, obviously but they need our prayers. I cannot imagine their pain! Like she said(in a tv interview) it's really bad to be called a murderer, but having your child taken from you and knowing that you cannot see him or go to his soccer games but you watch his bus going by each day is worse than that.

Was up at 6am. Have done 15 minutes on Wii. Went to Speech Therapist with DH... he agreed to 6 more weeks with Celeste. emoticon He IS making progress!
Stopped at McD's so he could have his breakfast "treat". I got coffee and the fruit & maple oatmeal. Wasn't bad... not my favorite, but I DID choose wisely and tracked it!
Updated my ticker and SPage.
Have consult w/neurologist today at 3pm, to go over DH's prognosis. Feel good about that, and offered prayers about it in morning Rosary. Remembered all of you, too. emoticon
OK. Off to do some salon management and bookwork.
emoticon to October! emoticon Rosary Month!

The HS made me get up and go to 11am Mass... it was awesome! I was just careful to not breathe on anyone and did not touch anyone...LOL!
The Eucharist provides us with inner AND physical strength. I do not feel all wonderful and well, but I DO feel so blessed and at peace! Thank you for the "kick" in the jammies, HS!
NOW I'll go back to bed! emoticon

I thought it was my PC, too! But I am used to FB doing weird things anyway, so I figured it could just be my PC. I went for several months without spellcheck, then it started working again when SP made the new changes. Perhaps they are upgrading the site again?
Anyhoo... have a respiratory bug. UGH!
Corgis are fed and been out. I am going back to bed...
Hope everyone has a good Sunday! Renew your spirit!

I'll be looking for your pictures, cj!

Happy to see your message Leah and thank you for sharing an opportunity of spiritual growth for us all. I think we can all use motivation at one time or another.
When I type up the Ministry Schedule for a two month period, I always write a paragraph following it. One of the most important things I say to the group on the schedule is, " May God bless each one of you, for all you do in serving Him". It is an honor and a priviledge to read God's Holy Word at Mass, and it is such a blessing to be an Extraordinary Minister. I'm sure each one of you who is involved in Church, feels the same way.
I hope each of you has a lovely weekend.

That is so true about joy. I have a sign in my office at work about attitude, that has a similar message. There are so many things out of our control, but our attitude is most definitely something we *can* control.

I don't own dogs, so this may be a dumb question, but do you ever trim their belly fur?

That's wonderful about time with your priest, Leah. And opportunity for confession too - bonus! I remember years ago, I had so many questions about the Church and her teachings. My very good priest and confessor at the time reminded me to attend Mass frequently (as many daily times as I could), as well as frequenting the sacrament of confession. Over a matter of months, the questions just faded away. I had my answers; they were in my heart.

So I can can understand how uplifting it can be just "getting into the groove" again.

Just got back from an hour long bike ride with my dh. He took some fall colour pics. Beautiful!
I'll see if I can upload some to my page.

Leah, I love the Daily Motivator. There is so much truth to it. I will choose to be full of joy today!

I know what you mean about the Corgi belly. We have had rain here since yesterday, and Abby's belly hair is so long (and her belly hangs down, too) that I have to wipe off her underneath before I let her back in the house. Fortunately she isn't too crazy about getting wet and muddy, so she does her best not to get too messed up. The things we do for our dogs!

It's a bit rainy and chilly here in NC this morning.
Was able to spend some time with my wonderful priest on Thursday afternoon, and he heard my confession, too. He understands how overwhelmed I have been the past four months. I feel stronger now, and recognize my strength lies in the Eucharist and my Faith. I've always known this, but sometimes life gets in the way and we fall aside for awhile.
It is a great gift to be able to feel you have a new beginning. The Sacraments offer us such renewal and hope! I am very grateful to have a priest who is "traditional", and always willing to encourage and guide in our Faith. He practices what he preaches! LOL!
I was so happy to Lector yesterday morning... one of my favorite readings from Ecclesiastes.
Guess I should get moving on blessing my house(in other words... cleaning! LOL!) and rotating the Corgis in and out between rain drops... nothing worse than a wet Corgi belly! Those short legs and long fur make me keep towels at every doorway.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
Remember the Year of Faith begins October 11th, and our Novena on October 7th!
Peace be with you!
Leah

Good Morning!
Just had to share with you the Daily Motivator for today:
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Joy is a choice

There is nothing that can make you happy if you choose not to be. And there is nothing that can prevent you from being happy when happiness is your choice.

There is no need to delay the joy of living until some future, imagined, ideal time when conditions are perfect. Now is when you are living your life, and now is your opportunity to live with genuine joy.

No position or possession or experience or set of circumstances will make your life good. Your life already is filled with magnificent goodness thatís yours to be experienced to whatever degree you allow.

Worrying about the future achieves nothing other than to rob you of joy in the present. Feel the wonder of your being, right here, right now, and fill your awareness with its richness.

Instead of looking for reasons to be envious or resentful, see in each moment all the opportunities for joy. Instead of avoiding or delaying what must be done, step enthusiastically forward each time you have a chance to make a difference.

Joy is a beautiful, life-affirming choice that you can always make no matter what. Choose to live with joy, and give yourself a life thatís truly rich.

ó Ralph Marston

I don't know if you saw the three picturesI posted from Easter. It took me a little while to get them to my spark page as I had to locate them from my many photo files, but I did, and then in the mean time, I made our ministry schedule for October & November. I love using the word processor to make it. It makes it so easy. emoticon Goodnight! Janis

That's a good word - "serving"!
Thank you!

I agree about ensuring that Mass is attended first, then other things fall into place after that. But we, too, sometimes attend a different Mass time if we have something else on as well.

CJ, I always say "serving" in a ministry because I see it as a way of serving God. It is also participating, but to me serving sounds a little more committed. But that's just my terminology.

We are in our first really big church ever, and it's the smallest parish we could find in this area with about 4000 families. I don't know how many Extraordinary Ministers of Communion we use every week, but last Sunday Communion took a long, long time. The Houston Texans were playing Sunday afternoon, so the 10:45 Mass was packed. I can't criticize, because that's the reason we went to 10:45 instead of the 5:00 Mass we usually go to. I figure that as long as going to Mass is our first priority of the weekend that God doesn't care if we schedule it around a football game; I hope He sees it that way, too! After all, this is Texas!

I know - we end up doubling more than we'd like because of that.

Actually, we have a circular arrangement at our church:
I tried to find a pic but couldn't find one.

Anyway, we have a circular platform on which the regular shaped altar sits. We then have four sections of pews that spread out from the altar so it is shaped like a "t" or cross shape.

During the "regular season" (not summer), we usually have four sets of Extraordinary ministers (with the priest in one of them). During the summer, we only have two sets of Ministers, and after their sections are finished Communion, they switch to their left, and distribute Communion to the other sections. We haven't switched back to our regular 4 sets yet. We must not have enough Ministers to serve everyone.

Hello all!

You are so sweet about saying you would love to hear me sing. Trust me, at other times, the Spirit is not so moving, and I just croak along sometimes!

I usually have trouble with the first notes, I hesitate, and either miss the beat, or sing it so timidly as I am nervous. Once, I nailed the first note, then messed something else up further along, so I learned pretty quickly not to get too "cocky" if I get something right. I think it works better the days I am most nervous, and feel that God is the one that has to guide me. It's all His words anyway, right?

I only hold hands with my family (when we sit together and I am not in the choir). Otherwise, I hold my hands with palm up.

We usually try to only have people what's the word, executing one ministry at a time? No. Participating? No. Carrying out? No. Darn. what is the verb I'm looking for? Anyway, if we lector, we don't cantor, if we serve communion, we don't lector, etc. However, when necessary, if someone is ill, or there aren't enough people to serve, we double up.

cj

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Dee, you would think it would be one way or the other. Our previous Priest who went to another Parish last summer, and the Priest we have now have said we are not suppose to hold hands during the "Our Father". We are not suppose to raise our hands up like the Priest does during Mass. I've never felt comfortable doing that as I do feel that is the Priest's part during the Mass. I see in different Parishes they do the things we no longer do. Our Priest does not allow us to open the Tabernacle or finish drinking from the Chalice. If their is any Precious Blood of Christ left over, our Priest finishes it. We have had Priests fill in for our Priest when he has been on vacation or on a Mission, and that Priest said we could finish it. I still hear people say Eucharistic Minister but our new Priest says we cannot say that, we say Extraordinary. I think I'm doing very well at remembering now. Yes, not all Priests are on the same page. We have under 20 families who regularly attend Church. Only one of the families have (3) children. Their oldest is a senior and I believe she just turned 17. Their Son is a sophmore and their youngest, a daughter is I believe is 11 years old. We are blest to still have our Mission open. We have had 3 Priest and 2 Sisters come from our Parish.
I hope each of you have a beautiful day. It's a gorgeous day here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The leaves are turning beautiful colors. I'm going to snap some pictures!

CJ, I would have loved to hear you cantor. I'll bet you did an inspiring job of it!

Janis, our priest in New Mexico didn't want people to lector and be EMCs (Extraordinary Ministers of Communion is what we called them). The lector did a lot: both readings, sometimes the Psalm if there wasn't a cantor, the Prayers of the Faithful, and helping the priest bring up the gifts. Now we live in Katy, TX, and there are 2 lectors, one for each reading and then they don't do anything else.

I have a question about the Our Father. Are we not supposed to be holding hands anymore? I noticed that people here in Katy are less likely to hold hands, but back in NM people were holding hands with people across the aisle or behind them or in front of them! It got to be kind of crazy, like one day I saw this poor woman who was holding hands with people in front of her and behind her, and she looked like a pretzel!!! emoticon

I like hearing about what other parishes do. Isn't it amazing that even with the differences we are all still part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church!!!

Goodmorning Dee, and to all!
Dee, our Priest prefers for us to be doing the one Ministry also, because he wants the Lector to recite the Communion antiphon. I make up the Ministry schedule in our St. Joseph Mission for two months at a time (I need to try and get it typed up today, as over the weekend I wrote it out on a rough draft.), and I never put a Lector down for both anymore. Sunday morning before Mass, the gal married to the man I had put down as Extraordinary Minister, approached me to tell me that she would recite the antiphon for me because her Husband had to go out of town, and asked if I'd be the Extraordinary Minister. She's a Lector, but her Husband along with their 3 children is an Altar Server, Lector & Minister of Holy Communion. We have such a small group. We have 5 Extraordinary Ministers, 7 Lectors & in the one Family 4 Altar Servers. We have one guy who will help as an Altar Server but he is feeling a bit uncomfortable doing it because he feels he's has dementia (he believes, or alzheimers). We use to say Eucharistic Ministers. Our Priest corrects us if we say that and to say Extraordinary Ministers. I still say it by mistake from time to time. When you've been saying it for at least 20 or more years, it's hard to break the habit. I still catch myself. I notice some people still hold hands at the Our Father. We stopped doing that over a few years ago. I still see that when visiters come to our Church or when I'm visiting another. Yes, I still see differences going on in other Parishes. Do any of you see that to?
I hope everyone has a lovely & blessed day.
And, oh yes! I love my Catholic Faith!

You, too!

I had a fabulous Sunday yesterday. I was very nervous as I was cantor for the psalm. However, the Lord allowed me to proclaim His Word worthily, and it went quite well. I just felt the words, you know? It was all about how God uplifts us, and it is sooooo true!

Father then had a wonderful homily, that really touched my heart.

My dh and I then went out in our boat to see the changing colours on the trees down the river. It was beautiful, and we had such a good time together!

Praying that each of you has had a precious day with the Lord! Smile. What a joy it is to be in a country that still protects our ability to publicly worship God! We are so blessed... I cannot wait till Mass tomorrow. It is my favorite place to be. Love to each of you. emoticon

A smile can make it all feel a little better. So, I go and smile at myself in the mirror. Shallow or what? But it works... My name is Kathy and I'm Pennsylvania.

I know the feeling of stepping away from sparks (or at least the tracking part of it - I usually end up staying for the chatting features, lol).

That's wonderful news about the study group, and your dh cantoring. Wonderful!

Sorry you are having trouble with your back. I pray that it will get better for you.

Guess what happens when I skip my activities with SparkPeople for a couple of months... Give up? Here it is. I gain 15 pounds. I'm so happy to begin today getting back on track. Each of your positive notes below is so happy and encouraging.

Quick update on DH and my journey as new Catholics... Father W. asked me to lead a Bible study for the church. Over 60 people came Thursday night to begin a study on the Gospel of John, and my husband has his first experience as cantor at the 11am Mass tomorrow. We LOVE this Church!

I was diagnosed yesterday with such bad stenosis of the lumbar spine that decompression and possibly fusion will be needed. I meet with the surgeon this coming Tuesday. I wonder if one can lead a Bible study from a stretcher... LOL. Life can get interesting!

I begin the Ideal Protein diet today, after a 6 month break and am so excited!

Praying that each of you has a precious experience this weekend in Him.

A smile can make it all feel a little better. So, I go and smile at myself in the mirror. Shallow or what? But it works... My name is Kathy and I'm Pennsylvania.

Someone on another sparkteam just said that her A/C broke, and she was sweltering as she baked cupcakes for a bake sale or something. I was a bit jealous! It is definitely a cool fall here right now.

A wonderful weekend to you as well, Janis.

Hi Dee,
The day was okay for me as far as being with good friends, and getting my hair done. We've been getting alot of rain since Monday and today was alot of the same. I used my umbrella some. I really don't like dreary days, Dee! I love sunshine. Wouldn't it be nice if it only rained at night? emoticon It doesn't work like that though. Is that the kind of weather you're getting too?
I can't recall if you've mentioned what State you live in. I live in Upper Michigan. The fall colors are beginning to show on the leaves on the trees. It's starting to look very pretty.
I hope all is going well for you.
With Love, emoticon & Prayers emoticon Janis

Nothing Is Impossible with God.
Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Our world is in such a mess. All we can do is hope & pray for the best. I thank the Lord, my God for my Rosary. We certainly have to remember to vote.
Love & prayers to all!
God bless you & your weekend.
