Deepa's Estate Sale

I am having an estate sale to get rid of almost all of my stuff.  I move out of my apartment in late October, and I'm perfectly capable of sleeping on a cot.  

Deepa's Estate Sale photo album

The album contains just a few of my items.  I'm taking the rest of the photos tonight.

If you're interested in purchasing an item, email me about picking the item up, and whether its still available.

Here's a preview.

St. Deepa

Background to the following story:  I was at my 2nd family's house, where I go at least once a week.  And, B and I were having a conversation about saints and feast days.  She and her brothers, D and J are named for saints (as it should be).

my 7-year-old sister: "Is there a St. Deepa?"
me: "I don't think so, no."
B: "One day there will be."

That little conversation has been on my mind and running in my head for 5 days now.

Deo Gratias

Jesus, My Savior, My God, Our Sweet Christ in heaven, thank you for sending me wonderful benefactors.  Please watch over them and guide them in their life.  May their lives be blessed because you are truly living within them.  May they always know the Love You have for them.  Lord, I also pray for all of their intentions, great and small.  I beg you to hear them and answer them.  
Jesus, you are Holy and Mighty.  Your Wonder truly is on and all over this earth.  For without You, I would be nothing.  Allow me to see myself for who You have created me to be.  I want nothing but You.  Nothing but to do Your Will.  I am so unworthy of your Love.  And, yet You lavish your Love upon me.  I wonder if I will ever truly know the mystery of your Love. In Your Sweet Name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.

we're making a dent.

I'm actually getting there.
After returning from my Summit visit, I'll start posting the items I am selling.  You can feel free to purchase if you want.  The more I sell, the closer I'll get and the less I have to place in storage.

Also, my 9 novena to be debt free might be over, but we're still praying.  Thanking the saints and Mary for praying for me.  I'm praying one rosary daily for that intention.  Will you join me?

Matthew 20:28

Just so, Jesus came not to be served, but to serve, and give His life as a ransom for many. ~ Matthew 20:28

This weekend, I, along with 7 other CORE (adult leaders) took our 22 mini CORE on a peer leadership retreat.

The team's verse for the year is Matthew 20:28.

the Good Shepherd

I've been reading a lot of journal entries and old talks I've written.  One that strikes me over and over is the one I want to share with you now.  I gave this talk somewhere between 2005-2007 at an XLT (Eucharistic Adoration with a witness talk for teens).

Novena to be Debt Free - part 9

ST. CATHERINE, glorious Virgin and Martyr, resplendent in the luster of wisdom and purity; thy wisdom refuted the adversaries of Divine truth and covered them with confusion; thy immaculate purity made thee a spouse of Christ, so that after thy glorious Martyrdom Angels carried thy body to Mount Sinai. Implore for me progress in the science of the Saints and the virtue of holy purity, that vanquishing the enemies of my soul, I may be victorious in my last combat and after death be conducted by the angels into the eternal beatitude of Heaven. Amen.

My Lord and God! I offer up to Thee my petition in union with the bitter passion and death of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, together with the merits of His immaculate and blessed Mother, Mary ever virgin, and of all the Saints, particularly with those of the holy Helper in whose honor I make this novena.

Look down upon me, merciful Lord! Grant me Thy grace and Thy love, and graciously hear
my prayer. Amen.

Please join me in prayer to pay down my debt as soon as possible. And for others like me.
