Run for Life

I am not one who typically attempts to raise money with my athletic endeavors, however I have made an exception for this cause.

Houston Coalition for Life seeks to provide medical care to those who can not afford it by way of a mobile pregnancy assistance center.  They are adamant about providing life giving care in a peaceful, loving way. 

Even if one is Pro Choice, I ask you to consider donating to this cause, because Life is one of the choices that can be made and having access to pregnancy care for those most in need of that care could be the only factor that makes a mother decide one way or another.

Please keep this cause and all who do this work in your prayers. And if you can help, even in some small way, I will be forever grateful!

Mary, Untier of Knots

I found this prayer on a blog that I visit and felt compelled to share it here.  May it bring comfort to whomever prays it.

Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exists in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exist in my life. 
You know very well how desperate I am, my pain, and how I am bound by these knots. 
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of his children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life. 
No one, not even the Evil One himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone. 
Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot.
[Mention your request here]
I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all. You are my hope. 
O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution, and, with Christ, the freedom from my chains. 
Hear my plea. 
Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.
