9 Days for Life Novena - Day 3

Intercession:  May all people embrace the truth that every life is a good and perfect gift, and is worth living.

Prayers:  Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be

Reflection:  Our culture is obsessed with perfection—a superficial perfection. Photos are airbrushed, and social media sites depict seemingly perfect lives. God calls us to seek perfection, too. He does not call us, however, to perfection of appearance or abilities, but to perfection in love.

In “A Perfect Gift,” one parent shares about the experience of raising a child with Down syndrome, contrasting it with what onlookers might perceive: “It’s like looking at a stained-glass window from the outside: The colors look dark, and you can’t quite make out the figures. From the inside, however, with the sun shining through it, the effect can be brilliant. From inside our family, love illuminates our life with Charlie.* What may seem dreary to others, perhaps even unbearable, is actually filled with beauty and color.”

May each of us experience the power of God’s transforming love, that our eyes may be opened to the incredible beauty of the people the Lord places in our lives.

Act of Reparation:  Spend some time in prayer for all those who are considering aborting their child with special needs that they will be overwhelmed with love for their baby and the need to protect and nurture him/her.

reason 10001 why I wouldn’t survive a horror movie

so here’s the thing with my house, we got a lot of motion detection lights ‘cause we have three dogs that roam around at night and they need to be able to see, and it’s nice for me ‘cause then I don’t trip on the stairs coming down for my 3 AM cup of coffee

anyway, point is, I just finished making my coffee and shut off the kitchen lights and made my way to the living room when the motion detector light went on.  Now this one is one is my least fave because while it’s pretty effective, it shines light on the stairs that makes it look like a scene straight out of poltergeist, and I always end up running up the stairs.

So just now, I had my coffee in hand, the light went on, I turned to the stairs, AND THEN I DROPPED THE CUP AND SCREAMED SO LOUD I’M SURPRISED THE COPS HAVEN’T SHOWN UP BECAUSE STANDING RIGHT SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STAIRS I SHIT YOU NOT IS THAT BITCH FROM THE RING 

turned out to be my mom who was laughing so hard she almost fell down and I just spent ten minutes trying to stop my heart from stroking out
