Okay...so as not to look a fool two days in a row.....I went back and double checked what Thursday's are in June. They are "shout outs" and "prayer requests!" Mmmmkay....got this covered! So here we go!
Today's Shout Outs:
A shout out to our parish priest Father Mike for all he has done for St. Michael's and for all the thousands of jokes he has told since he has been here. Congratulations on 25 years of exceptional service to God!
A tearful shout out to all those who have rolled up their shirt sleeves and have dived in to help the tornado victims all over the country this storm season. You make peoples lives easier in such a difficult time and help to bring hope to a struggling community. Thank you!
And finally....a huge shout out to whoever thought up Blogger Idol! Just reading up on it and hearing some of the buzz around it makes it a fun and exciting challenge to see if you make it to the final 12. Make it or not though....it is great fun to be a part of and a tremendous way to get the creativity flowing. Thanks guys!
Again I ask prayers and good thoughts for all of those recovering from this seasons tornadoes. Finding their way back to any kind of normal will be hard fought, so please keep them close in your prayers.
Prayers for Eric Love who is on his way to Ohio to find out if he needs heart surgery.
Prayers for a mother and father who lost their 23 year old son this week.
Prayers for a family who lost a member to suicide on Saturday.
Prayers for the farmers who are in the middle of harvest. May they stay safe and have profitable yields.
Finally....prayers for my Aunts grand baby who underwent heart surgery yesterday. He is right at a week old and last I heard was doing well.
Don't forget....if you have a shout out or prayer request that you would like me to mention....just let me know and I will be glad to include it.
Well....I guess I should get this day started. The child in me actually wants to go back to bed.....however, the adult in my wants to eat, and food always trumps sleep....so there you have it. Work it is! Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday. Be good, be safe....and most of all......be happy!
