Illness, hurricane, destruction

I am sorry, dear readers, that I have not kept up with this blog. I have been very ill, and it looks like I will finally need surgery to remove a cyst from within my spinal cord and to remove a cyst at the back of my brain.

Additionally, my home was submerged under 6 feet of water by Hurricane Ike, and I have lost most of my possessions.

Such times teach one that no matter how treasured some object may be the real treasure in life is to be found in the bonds of family and friends within the eternal friendship of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Please keep us in your prayers, and please ask Our Lady, Star of the Sea, to intercede for Galveston Island and her people.
