Everyday (Negan One shot)

I definitely recommend giving “Everyday” by Ariana Grande a listen while reading this! Afterall it was the inspiration! lol Enjoy!


“Anytime I’m alone, I can’t help thinking about you
All I want, all I need, all I see, it’s just me and you”

Chelsea gazed out the window anxiously awaited his return to get back from yet another supply run. She couldn’t help but continue to think back to an earlier conversation between her and Sherry.

When she took up Negans proposal of being his wife, she politely demanded that she’d still be allowed to do her own laundry. Even before the apocalypse, she wasn’t comfortable with someone else handling her clothes. Call it a quirk. And now as she folded the last of her dry garments, she felt someone sit down next to her, Sherry. Chelsea and Sherry had an oddly endearing relationship. Looking over at the lovely brunette, she waited for her to speak.

Christian prayer, similarly [to Jewish prayer], is steeped in a magic that honors, rather than subverts, the power of God. A remarkable ninth-century Old Saxon alliterative poem called the Heliand (Song of the Savior) illustrates this in high dramatic fashion. Recasting the gospel in language comprehensible to Saxon warrior culture, the Heliand tells of four heroes who inscribe in a “bright-shining book” the spells by which the Creator made and redeemed the world. The heroes sing of a Great One born in a humble hill fort, who in infancy narrowly escapes death at the hands of a “slime-hearted” king, flees into exile, and then returns to be proclaimed son of the Chieftain and lord of the middle world. Immersed in sacred waters by a soothsayer, he emerges in shining strength to do single combat with a supernatural enemy. He gathers twelve thanes, warrior companions, with whom he travels the countryside, healing the sick, turning water into apple wine, magically increasing bread to feed a hungry crowd, and performing other miracles. As his enemies draw near, he bestows upon his thanes a gift of bread and wine transformed: “‘Believe me clearly,’ He said, 'that this is My body and also My blood…. This body and blood is a thing which possesses power: with it you will give honor to your Chieftain.’” The next day, the son of the Chieftain is captured, tortured, and hanged from a criminal tree. But in the morning his holy breath returns to his body, the doors of the underworld burst open, the road to heaven shines forth in brilliant sunlight, and he rises from the dead.

To see Jesus and his disciples transported into a world of thanes and soothsayers, where magic and holiness coincide, is extraordinary enough. Yet more remarkable is how little the essential Christian message is lost in the process. The Heliand’s version of the Lord’s Prayer, for example, while saturated with magic, remains faithful to the New Testament account. It begins with one of the twelve asking Jesus to teach them how to pray: “'Our good Lord,’ he said, "we need Your gracious help in order to carry out Your will and we also need Your own words, Best of all born, to teach us, Your followers, how to pray – just as John, the good baptist, teaches his people with words every day how they are to speak to the ruling God. Do this for Your own followers – teach us the secret runes.’” And so he teaches them this prayer:

Father of us, the sons of men,
You are in the high heavenly kingdom,
blessed be Your name in every word.
May Your mighty kingdom come.
May Your will be done all over this world –
just the same as it is up there
in the high heavenly kingdom.
Give us support each day, good Chieftain,
Your holy help, and pardon us, Protector of Heaven,
our many crimes, just as we do to other human beings,
Do not let evil little creatures lead us off
to do their will, as we deserve,
but help us against all evil deeds.

No prayer is more familiar, yet a mere twist of poetic diction makes it strange again, and in this strangeness a magical potency stands revealed…

To turn from the Heliand to a fresh reading of the New Testament us to have the scales fall from our eyes. Instantly we recognize that the early Christians must have seen Jesus, in part, as a warrior engaged in combat with satanic powers, using as his weapon prayer infused with divine magic.

  • McCoy [shocked]: Jesus Christ
  • Kirk [innocent]: Are you referring to me, Bones-y?
  • McCoy: What? N-
  • Kirk [astonished]: Could it be, the Great Bones-y McCoy has bestowed upon me a nickname?
  • McCoy: Now wait a god damn corn-fed minute-
  • Kirk [fans face with hand]: I knew this would happen eventually. I told myself I wouldn't cry-
  • McCoy: JIM-
  • Kirk: Now, now, Bones-y. It's Jesus now.

Today’s service was nothing if not completely enlightening.

The love and grace that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, bestows upon us on the daily is a greater mic drop than what even Beyonce could do. I’m totes feeling the groove from Big Daddy God and it’s telling me that today is a day to give back to the community even more so than I already do by breathing.

Thus, feel free to stop by my room if the humidity is making you crazier than bath salts, and I’ll scoop you some bomb-ass, self-made nice cream – flavor of your choosing as long as it’s not disgusting.

You’re welcome.

St ANTHONY of PADUA NOVENA for all our needs – DAY FIVE – 8 JUNE

DAY FIVE

I salute you, St. Anthony,
lily of purity, ornament and glory of Christianity.
I salute you, great Saint, cherub of wisdom and seraph of divine love.
I rejoice at the favours our Lord has so liberally bestowed upon you.
In humility and confidence I entreat you to help me,
for I know that God has given you charity and pity,
as well as power.
I ask you by the love you did feel toward the Infant Jesus
as you held Him in your arms to tell Him now of the favour I seek
through your intercession in this novena
(State your intention).

One Our Father, one Hail Mary, and Glory Be to the Father, in honour of Saint Anthony.

Saint Anthony, pray for us!

Visit to the Blessed Sacrament by St. Alphonsus

Lord Jesus Christ, who through the love which thou bearest to man, dost remain with them day and night in this sacrament, full of mercy and love, expecting, inviting, and receiving all who come to visit Thee; I believe that Thou art present in the Sacrament of the Altar. From the abyss of my nothingness I adore Thee, and I thank Thee for all the favors wich Thou hast bestowed upon me, particularly for having given me Thyself in this sacrament, for having given me for my advocate Thy most Holy Mother Mary, and for having called me to visit Thee in this Church.

I this day salute Thy most loving Heart, and I wish to salute it for three ends: first, in thanksgiving for this great gift; second, in compensation for all the injuries Thou hast received from Thy enemies in this sacrament; third, I wish by this visit to adore Thee in all places in which Thou art least honored and most abandoned in this Holy sacrament. My Jesus, I love Thee with my whole heart. I am sorry for having hitherto offended Thy infinite goodness. I purpose, with the assistance of Thy grace, nevermore to offend Thee; and at this moment, miserable as I am I consecrate my whole being to Thee. I give Thee my entire will, all my affections and desires, and all that I have. From this day forward, do what thou wilt with me and with whatsoever belongs to me. I ask and desire only Thy holy love, the gift of final perseverance, and the perfect accomplishment of Thy will. I recommend to Thee the souls in purgatory, particularly those who were most devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and to most Holy Mary; and I also recommend to Thee all poor sinners. Finally, my dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with the affections of Thy most loving Heart; and thus united I offer them to Thy eternal Father, and I entreat Him, in Thy name and for Thy sake, to accept them. Amen.

  • Me: I’m so blessed I would just like to thank God for this blessing that has been bestowed upon me and I am just so thankful to the heavens for this gift I have received and also thank you Jesus for giving me this honor and I’d also like to tha——

 One Minute Reflection – September 14 

He who does not take up his cross and come after me is not worthy of me…………Mt 10:38

REFLECTION – The Cross is the greatest gift God could bestow on His elect on earth. There is nothing so necessary, so beneficial, so sweet or so glorious as to suffer for Jesus.
If you suffer as you ought, the cross will become a precious yoke that Jesus will carry with you…………………St Louis Grignion de Montfort

PRAYER – Lord Jesus, impress upon me that without a cross on earth there will be no crown in heaven. Help me to bear my cross daily for You as You bore Your Cross for me and for all human beings. Amen

My most loving Jesus, Who, although thou didst foresee my ingratitude, hast never ceased to bestow upon me an abundance of graces, above all, the grace of the Faith — ah, of Thy mercy enkindle such a flame within my heart, that my daily life may be always conformable to my Faith. O Divine, true and only Lover of my soul, when will the day at length arrive on which I shall begin to love Thee with my whole heart?
