A Letter From Satan

A LETTER TO YOU FROM SATAN I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores. You awoke without kneeling to pray. As a matter of fact, you Didn’t even bless your meals, or Pray before going to bed last night. You are so Unthankful, I like that about you. I cannot tell you how glad I am That you have not changed your Way of living, you are mine. Remember, you and I have been Going steady for years. And I still Don’t love you yet. He kicked me out of heaven, And I'm going to use you as long as Possible to pay him back. You see, Fool, GOD LOVES YOU and HE has great plans in store for you. But you have yielded your life to me, And I'm going to make your life a Living hell. That way, we'll be together twice. This will really hurt God. Thanks to you, I'm really Showing Him who's boss in your life with All of the good times we've had. We have been cursing people out, Stealing, lying, being hypocritical, fornicating, overeating, Telling dirty jokes, gossiping, being judgmental, Back stabbing people, disrespecting adults, And those in leadership positions, No respect for the Church, bad attitudes. SURELY you don't want to give All this up. Come on, let's burn together forever. I've got some hot plans for us. This is just a letter of appreciation from me To you. I'd like to say "THANKS" for letting me use You for most of your foolish life. You are so gullible, I laugh at you. When you are tempted to sin, You give in HA, you make me sick. Sin is beginning to take it's toll on your life. You look 20 years older, and now, I need new blood. So go ahead and teach some children how to sin. All you have to do is smoke, Get drunk or drink while underage, cheat, gamble, Gossip, fornicate, and live being as selfish as possible. Do all of this in the presence of children and They will do it too. Kids are like that. Well, I have to let you Go for now. I'll be back in a couple of Seconds to tempt you again. If you were smart, You would run somewhere, Confess you sins, Live for God with what little bit of life that You have left. It's not my nature to warn anyone, But to be your age and still sinning, It’s becoming a bit ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I still hate you. P.S. If you really love me, you won't share this letter with anyone. Written by Unknown

It's Coming....

*JMJ* Yep, it's true. Lent is coming! Like I said in last years post, Lent is my favorite time in the church. To me it's a time when you want to shout out...(pointing) I'm Catholic! I'm...I'm...I'm a Catholic!!!! Me...I'm Catholic (Lol). Oh I'm fasting because...I'm a Catholic! Oh I can't eat meat on Friday because...I'm Catholic! Be proud to have those ashes on your forehead because...I'm a Catholic! And the list goes on and on. I think I get this from the fact that I didn't grow up in the Catholic faith until almost 11 years now. So I'm excited to see that I am still excited about my Catholic faith. Does it get boring? Heck no! With each year, I become a better Catholic. And let me tell you, it's going to take me a lot of Lenten seasons, probably all of my life, to get myself to were God wants me to be! I know I always say this, but when I first became Catholic, I use to pray and asked the Lord why he chose me to become a Catholic. I use to say, "Jesus, I'm such a terrible Catholic (Lol)." I really was. I use to tell the Lord that he made a big mistake calling me to the church. The Lord had no problem pointing out all of my faults. And trust me, there were and still is quite a bit. With more Lenten seasons, I trust that the Lord will iron out all of my wrinkles. And I'm not kidding. It will probably take my whole life time for that! But I've come to learn that our faith is a journey. It will take my whole life to walk through my journey of faith.
Over the past years, I have really liked the Stations of the Cross prayer. So this year, I went out hunting around at different Catholic stores to find the Stations of the Cross prayer beads. I was so happy to finally have one for my own. I've always wanted these prayer beads. They have the 15 pictures for each station. And I real big crucifix. The crucifix has the trinity on it. Father, Son & Holy Spirit. I've never seen a crucifix like that, I like it.
So I'm going to really enjoy using these for the Stations of the Cross prayer this Lenten season. So all I have to do is dust off the ole' bible and grab my rosary beads out of the bottom of that drawer and I'm good to go for this Lenten season. Oh yeah I gotta get me one of those little black books to.
I hope that you all are preparing for Lent. Because it's coming!!
God bless all of my readers. I hope that you all have a very spiritual Lenten season that brings you closer to God. Don't forget that Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. It's not a day of Holy Obligation. But please go to mass. It's a wonderful way to kick off the Lenten season.
Peace & Love, Anne
P.S. I'm giving up coffee for Lent!
