I Am Glad

I am glad that God is in charge of the world. That its not up to me to fix all the broken pieces, to bind all the broken wounds, to lift up all the troubled souls.

What is up to me is to give all to God and be quick to obey in whatever He asks - in this way - perhaps in some small way I can be his smile, his hand, his aid.

But its not up to me to carry the weight of the world. I can be sad for every broken heart and wounded spirit. I can ache for every troubled soul and every lonely child - but only God can reach down and save his precious world.

So - its only up to me - to love the moment that is before me. To accept the beauty of this moment - in whatever wrapping it comes… sometimes tears and sometimes laughter.

I don’t have to appear to be bigger than I am - holier or humbler than I am or anything but who I am - as I am - at this moment.

I can be as holy as I want - and not care if I get labeled as conservative or overly pious or sickening sweet. I can pray when I want or not - and be content that God is content with me.

I do not have to wriggle myself into some saintly  image that someone else has made for me and squirm because it does not fit nor do I have to deny my faith, my devotion my Catholicism because it makes someone else uncomfortable, or angry or annoyed.

I can be me - wholly Catholic - wholly a sinner - and wholly forgiven.

Yep, just me.

Thank you God - for letting me be who I am today. Who I will be tomorrow is yet to be explored.

That’s my thought for the day.

Blessings of Peace and All Good,
Sister Patricia

Updating Holyecards site

I have been working to update the card site with lots of Easter cards, Mother’s Day cards and new saints cards, such as St. Peter Gonzales, St. Peter Chanel, St. Catherine Sienna any many more.  I plan to keep adding more cards for the next month or so.

New Christmas cards

Only four days till Christmas! Sort of late for me to be adding new Christmas cards.. but that is the way it is. I started by trying to add the Christmas music. Woe upon woe. I cannot find the page to edit… this new language the card site is written in very difficult for me to find anything. Yesterday I spent at least an hour just looking for the page to edit. Today I finally sent a message to Luke and Chris (designer and programmer) to help me out. When all else fails.. ask….

In the meantime as I wait for the response I have been adding a few new cards. Some animated ones! A lovely little lamb with the baby Jesus from the Catholic Tradition site… Just love it.. and then one that I had done several years ago on the old site.  Animated Christmas Cards

Updates December 10

Barb and I worked on the site this morning and made some great changes on the card template. We moved the image of the card from the middle of the page - to the top. This way you can see right away if this is the card you want to go with rather than scrolling…scrolling….scrolling…

We changed the “Post this Card” to “Send this Card”  ….. just an American thing. Luke our wonderful designer is English.. and there are just a few of these teensy details… that don’t seem to “click” as well for us.

We deleted everything from the “Preview” page except for the image and envelope. The other stuff like send this card, print this card, etc… just seemed to be stuff you don’t really need on a preview page.

Oh! And of course - we just added this blog so that we can let you know (if you possibly are interested) just what we have been doing.

You are also welcome to leave comments, suggestions… complaints, whatever. I have made the comments so that you have to register though… because otherwise it will be spam city.
