I got to do this with #SmallSuccess columnist - Sherry Antonetti
<<~~~~ THIS KID ... aka Ian
Began college this week!! Yeah !!!
I am so incredibly proud of him. He has begun his studies in Deaf Studies and American Sign Language Interpretation. HE will be amazing in this field - and I AM so thrilled he has finally discovered that is his call as well!!
PRAYERS please as he adjusts to school again!!!
While this is not exactly MY success -- I believe it is directly related to a small success of mine --- MAINLY LETTING GO and LETTING GOD!
I wanted to attend the Arise retreat -- who wouldn't with names like Lisa Hendey; Sarah Reinhard; Jennifer Willits; Brooke Taylor; Fr. Nathan Cromly, CSJ; Ben Walther; and Andrea Singarella being tossed about!
Yet anyone following me this last year knows Church Mice have more available funds than I Do presently!!! I brought it to prayer -- in Mass Tuesday morning, asked a few friends to through up a prayer (a know at least ONE Hail Mary was tossed heavenward) ... and then I let it be. Trusting GOD to either bless it or block it...
WHAT I NEVER ever could have expected was the incredibly generous, out of the blue, offer of remarkable donor to purchase my ticket for me!! YES... someone blew me away by paying for me to attend!! God's surprises never cease to knock my 'hole in the heel' socks off every time!!
THERE ARE 7 SPOTS left ... I will pray you too are blessed to spend this "Grace Well" filling retreat too!!
