   Iacta alea est  MeiDei, my most profound thanks forshowing me the link you did. I have been applying the things written in the excerpt, everyday and it is making a daily difference and improvement to my life. And I'm sure if I keep the praise going my life will keep getting better. It (and you ) have made a difference. Much, much love. Hallelujah!

   Iacta alea est  Thanks for caring Mei....myself, not terrible, I go to cardiac rehab 3 times a week, but quitting smoking is more difficult than imagined....Mom is not doing great, sis & I are investigating nursing homes....please keep praying for me & I will do the same for you.

   BirdsNest  lacta, trying to quit smoking proved to be something Hagar just could not do. He quit the day he went in for surgery because he never did get out of a hospital or a nursing home. Keep at it. As for nursing homes, find one where you can visit your mother that's close by. The staff is more efficient when the loved ones are close to watch over the resident. I was with Hagar every minute while he was here locally and I saw the difference in his care. Best of luck. You have a lot on your plate.

   Iacta alea est  Thank you Bird. Had my own bout with kidney stones over the weekend. Was hospitalized and they went in and removed this one. I'm back home and feeling much better. Let's all keep each other in each others' prayers. Much love to all.

   MeiDei  Keeping you in thought & prayers - trusting you & your sister can be of one-mind regarding your Mom so that neither of you have regrets. Quitting smoking when so much is up in the air is daunting, don't get discouraged.

   Iacta alea est  Unfortunately my sister -the lawyer- has decided to turn this into an adversarial circus. Years ago, my parents added her name to the deed of thier house, so now she is trying to get mom into a nursing home, toss me out and sell the house. My Dad recently sold a commercial property -she handled the closing- and now she refuses to turn the money over to them, deciding when and how much to give them at intervals.....and accuses me of stealing from them to boot. My parents refuse to get another lawyer for fear of never seeing their daughter again. Only God can quiet this situation down, but as of now He has been silent toward my prayers.

   MeiDei  If it will make you feel better, it seems your parents know your constancy regardless of the circumstances whereas they fear your sister will ignore them - take heart in that. Prayers continue. I first read "Power in Praise" in the early 70's - made a big difference in my life. Check out: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=pow

   MeiDei  BTW - I needed to read the above chapter as a refresher for this years continuing challenges & would not have brought it back to mind if not for your post Iacta - so good on both of us.

   Iacta alea est  Thank you so very much Mei. That short chapter has helped me already, in that I have a better, much better grasp on what REAL praise is. I could easily be described as a "manipulator" as pictured in the chapter. But now I know better, and my spiritual heart feels so much more in tune with our loving God. Thanks again.

   Suejeanne  Hi, everyone - In the comment below, you will find the prayer to St. Michael. I saw this comment this morning over in a must reads article, about how the Obama administration observed Hannukah - I thought I would paste it in here so I could find it really quickly - as I recall, Mother Angelica on EWTN would say this prayer in that segment after the rosary (when she said the rosary ) - they also have "The Rosary in the Holy Land" with Father Mitch Pacwa at 4:30 AM (Pacific Time ) if it doesn't get interrupted by something like the Pope visiting - they used to also have the rosary on at 12:30 pm - it was a different one, showing people around the world praying the rosary in different languages - that was beautiful. There is a website - sancta.org - where you can learn how to say the rosary (and also learn about Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose image shows her crushing the serpent ). I know some people don't go for this but for me, I have found it to be helpful.

#4 I believe in the power of prayer, which is why I pray to St. Michael several times a day:

"Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls."
