‼️Must Read‼️ I was speechless while reading this.
– “I have to admit, I always wondered what this part of Psalm 23 meant. I thought “He anoints my head with oil” was figurative language for God keeping the Psalmist healthy. I never knew this parallel.
Anoint my head with oil “Sheep can get their head caught in briers and die trying to get untangled. There are horrid little flies that like to torment sheep by laying eggs in their nostrils which turn into worms and drive the sheep to beat their head against a rock, sometimes to death. Their ears and eyes are also susceptible to tormenting insects. So the shepherd anoints their whole head with oil. Then there is peace. That oil forms a barrier of protection against the evil that tries to destroy the sheep. Do you have times of mental torment? Do the worrisome thoughts invade your mind over and over? Do you beat your head against a wall trying to stop them? Have you ever asked God to anoint your head with oil? He has an endless supply! His oil protects and makes it possible for you to fix your heart, mind, and eyes on Him today and always! There is peace in the valley! May our good good Father anoint your head with oil today so that your cup overflows with blessings! God is good and He is faithful!!”’

“The reason for our existence is to quench the thirst of Jesus. When He asked for water, the soldier gave Him vinegar to drink—but His thirst was for love, for souls, for you and me.” -St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Driving Thoughts;
Authority.
Who has authority in your life?
Are you under authority?
Can you be tamed?
Is there any outside law or rule that governs you?

“Once the Lord said to me, Act like a beggar who does not back away when he gets more alms [than he asked for], but offers thanks the more fervently. You too, should not back away and say that you are not worthy of receiving greater graces when I give them to you. I know you are unworthy, but rejoice all the more and take as many treasures from My Heart as you can carry, for then you will please Me more. And I will tell you one more thing — take these graces not only for yourself, but also for others; that is, encourage the souls with whom you come in contact to trust in My infinite mercy. Oh, how I love those souls who have complete confidence in Me — I will do everything for them.” —St. Faustina, Diary, 294

It’s been a LONG time since Steve has been able to move his right hand. He has had a couple of major surgeries, set-backs, and long recoveries these last couple of months! All these changes prevented him from functioning as he did when we left California, back in May. But I guess It’s like they say with Brain Injury,- ‘One step forward a couple steps back’. I’m happy to say that Steve FINALLY started moving his right hand again! (Maybe it’s because he knows we are heading back to Ca. 😉 ) Or maybe it’s because God is hearing and answering our prayers! ❤️
Over the past 2 weeks he has been practicing, getting stronger and re-learning some pretty cool ‘tricks’. He isn’t super consistent, yet, and asking him to ‘follow a command’ at the right time of day, is key. (Like when he is most awake and alert, he does better, then when he is tired) We are working on it and he continues to SLOWLY improve. He has come from ZERO movement to all these fun things!
So far this week-
He’s been able to give a thumbs up on command. 👍🏼 He signed “I love you” to his boys, when I asked him to tell them ‘I love you’ before bed time!!!! 🤟🏼 (which is a really hard one for him to do, we have been practicing a lot, but he was motived by his boys to get it done!)❤️ Steve is still in there!
He voluntarily will slowly reach his hand up to his face & bring his face to his hand to wipe his nose or mouth.
He even figured out how to use his middle finger! 😂. (Not to be mean just to be funny)😂 Steve is still in there!
I’ve even seen him nudge stuff with his toes and move his legs ever so slightly, on purpose.
Oh ya and he is REALLY good at thumb wars!
The fact that he can occasionally follow those commands and make his hand do what he wants is super impressive to me! Baby steps! But he is getting there!
Proud is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!!

The Great Apostles of the nations all performed miracles to authenticate the Truth of the Gospel.
Our Lord went so far as to promise His disciples that they would perform greater miracles than He. “Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do, And greater than these shall he do.” (John 14:12).
Saint Patrick was sent as bishop to Ireland in 433 and the whole island converted. This would not have happened had not this holy man performed astounding miracles. The battles with the Druids were like Moses conquering the magicians of pharao. I know of no saint who raised so many people from the dead, thirty-three says Jocelyn his biographer, to give them Faith and baptism.

Other nations converted by holy miracle workers were: the East Indies by Saint Francis Xavier, whose ten years on his mission were filled with miracles and millions of converts, and Mexico by the great miracle of Our Lady in 1531, a miracle that abides still in the holy tilma of Saint Juan Diego. By 1541, there were ten million Aztecs who had entered the Church.
Now it’s your turn, believe, trust God, and miracles will happen.
