I didn't realize it, but I had treated God like an equal.
My praying and fasting presumed a kind of quid pro quo.
"If I do this Jesus, then You fix that...I do my part and You do yours."
Prayer and fasting aren't bargaining chips...they are to be acts of love.
We can't "bribe" God...
He listens, He knows, He will answer in His way (which we may or may not like)
Remember, He is God...we are not!
Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...Wendy, Walt and the entire Cukierski family

In celebration of my first grand-daughter Eliana Marion's birth day (born yesterday on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!) we are giving away silver coins to those who help with the Pediatric Giving Mission
-----From a physician we help...he sees to the medical needs of children no one else seems to be able to help -----
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!
