Another Friday another Five Minute Friday post. This week is bittersweet as Lisa Jo announces she will be handing off the linkup to Kate. I know all good things must come to an end and I’m glad the link-up will continue on a different blog. I have a link-up addiction and attachment that some weeks if I don’t participate I feel weird. I also have a bad habit of just blogging link-ups all week…oops.
FINISH. This weekend the St. Anne Novena ends. It’s been an interesting 9 days if I can say the least. I started saying the novena in person with 7 other single bloggers at a blogger meetup I was at last weekend. Then I came home and had to finish the novena alone which was kind of sad.
For those of you that have never heard of a novena it is a set of prayers you say for 9 days with a special prayer intention. Many times they revolve around a saints feast day. St. Anne’s feast day is Saturday so the 9 days before her feast day you pray to her for a special intention. Every saint is a patron of something and St. Anne is the patron of relationships (new and old). You also can pray to her if you have trouble conceiving as she was very old when she had Mary [She is also Jesus’ grandmother]. Oh yeah and I’m named after her.
As her novena and my prayers for my future spouse come to a FINISH I’m just confused. Confused about what it all means. Confused about life in general. Confused about where god wants me in life. Confused about who the heck my future husband is and where he is and uh why isn’t he here yet?!!? Confused about when I will ever have children. I guess this weeks word should be CONFUSED and not FINISH.
But I will Finish the prayers and the novena and whatever outcome happens I know in my heart I’ll be ready for it!
