☦ Orthodox Christian giving God Glory for His Saint, Anthony of Padua!

I went bonkers looking for a receipt to return something. Not with the other receipts I had together from same store.

I asked the Saint to please help me find the receipt. Immediately I looked in the bottom of the bag and there it was! A bird feeder that was tight in the bag and I didn't want to pull it out.

Every, every time I've called on him, he has come through for me and thus I vow to give witness.

God is Glorified in His Saints••Orthodox AND Catholic!

4. Please forgive this belated response from me.

I couldn't find this by a search. So I reviewed all 'my' posts and did find it.

You show such lovingkindness to ask about my state of being.

It's not good. I don't know what to do. It may be mostly physical that leads to my state of mind being affected. I don't feature spiraling down into a depression. My Faith is being put to a gigantic test.

Stuff just keeps coming at me that I alone can correct. Not having my husband to rely on stinks. We got on pretty well. Didn't see things the same at times, but he at least was my sounding board.

People that I sorta expected to bother with me at least occasionally are silent.

I've been a strong person up till this. I give them a pass bc they could be having it rougher than I got it.

Sick up to here and beyond of much in the world. How could people not be?

I should be doing better than this.

I sleep for 10-11 hours and wake up like I worked all night. I'm so tired all the time.

I was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr antibodies in '85. I've felt crappy since the mid 70's. All doc visit printouts: "Extreme fatigue." "Extreme fatigue." Doc said back then, "It's academic." Now it's a valid disorder that DSSI considers for benefits. Stress, infections, over activity brings it out again.

Now I'm so sorry for over shooting the runway here.

Thanx for listening,
sprink ♥️

7. Pardon my eavesdropping here, but thinking about your situation...

Go easy on yourself.
As I recall, you were widowed without any notice, a very rough twist of fate.
Take credit for what you contribute to us DUers here - much appreciated.
I for one appreciate the classical music choices - that all takes time and thought.
Pace your self, and tell yourself that this is what you, Sprink, need to do operate.

Meantime, thanks for all you do.

8. I receive your lovingkindness. Yes, I 'try' to pace myself, but stuff keeps coming at me.

I expected some sort of a respite from much of it, but no.

Singlehandedly contending with it all.

The US and world situations are part of my distress.

Safety, health and peace be unto you and yours. ♥️

2. When my daughter was in Catholic HS

they had this little prayer when they lost something. It sounds silly but the kids were very sincere about it.
"St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please come around.
Something's lost that can't be found."

I've even used it a time or two and it does work. I don't know how he got to be the patron of lost things, but he's good at it.

3. Shorter version....

Tony, Tony, look around-
Something's lost and can't be found.

And, yes, I think he kind off likes this version as well.

5. An Orthodox sister who was raised Roman Catholic shared with me this Saint

and what wonder working virtue he is known for.
