I have encountered quite a few trials, lately.
I have to remind myself that we are strengthened by our trials...God works through trials!
I must admit, I don't always exactly take comfort in them...I thought about how I could possibly benefit from the trials...because honestly, my thoughts weren't holy or charitable.
Let me put it this way... when difficult times come into our lives and we are unable to understand why.... the enemy is quick to throw doubts and questions into our minds, that's just what he does.
Then we end up questioning God in His goodness and His wisdom. We may even encounter a bit of bitterness and anger...but this is the work of the evil one.
God does understand and He allows this for a reason... nothing happens haphazardly.
God is in control...He knows what's going on.
In the Book of James it reminds us that God wants us to trust Him in the trials in life for a reason. The trials are molding us.
One of my adult sons said..."Hey mom, it is like a diamond... you've got to go through a little heat and pressure!" Wow, I taught that boy right!
Trials make us stronger, my friends ♡
Pray, hope & don't worry...be at peace♡
Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...Wendy, Walt and the entire Cukierski family

Masses celebrated for the release of a loved one possibly in Purgatory... as recommended by Pope Saint Gregory the Great!
What if I told you that your loved ones soul would be prayed for by a devout Catholic family...DAILY.
What if I told you that we have a Nun praying for these souls?
How is this possible? See THIS page
I am begging for your help with The Pediatric Giving Mission.
---HELP IF YOU CAN----
Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.
L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!
From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
Kindly, head HERE. We always send a nice gift for your help
