As I'm sitting here, doing school. I watch as my sister Esther gently spoons hot tea to Rachel. Praise God Rachel slept all night. She is still feeling sick, but I think she is on the mend. The sickness is a bit strange. High fever and headache and a feeling of being very weak. Esther has been an absolute angle to Rachel, reading to her, giving her tea and making her comfortable. I could certainly learn a thing or two from her!
I have to do a picture post!

Sickness strikes again!

While Esther feels much better, she even played soccer with us today, now Rachel (the 8 year old) is in bed with a dreadful headache. Again I ask for all of your prayers! As far as I know it is not much more than a headache, but I worry that it will turn into more. All is in God's hands!

Thanks for the prayers! Esther is doing a lot better. This morning she said the morning prayers with us and even had some crackers. :)

Hey all, I just want to post and ask for your prayers. This morning Esther came down with a fever, last I heard it was 100.5. She has been resting in bed all day. Thanks for the prayers! I'm sure she will fine in a few days, I just hope it isn't catching. I would hate for the little kids to get sick.

Saint Agatha

Today is the feast day of Saint Agatha, but it is also the day we remember our little baby in heaven. Since she (we don't know what sex the baby was. We just that it was a girl) went to heaven this day, we names her Agatha. She would be 8 years old today. I'm glad to have a little angle in heaven praying for us, but it also makes me sad. So here is a little bit about Saint Agatha and a prayer.

Saint Agatha was very beautiful. People looked at her and said "Oh, she is the fairest girl alive." But Agatha was also very pure and good. She loved Jesus Christ very much. She promised God she would never marry. "All my love is Yours," she said. "I will live and die for You."

Now it happened that the Governor of Sicily where Agatha lived heard of her beauty. So he sent for her. Soldiers came and arrested her. "You are a Christian," they said. "So you must go to jail." "Dear Lord Jesus," she prayed, "I belong to You. Do not let this tyrant have power over me." He made love to her. But she refused him. So he threw her into prison.

The governor was sure Agatha would be so afraid of prison that she would consent to love him. Instead, she made the wicked woman who was her jailer love God too. So the Governor ordered her to be tortured. She was not afraid. Then he ordered her to be beaten. "Dear Jesus," she cried, "come and take me." And Jesus came and took her home to heaven. Her Feast is on February 5th. (I got this off of google since the book I had didn't have her in it.)

Now here is the prayer:

Lord, let your forgiveness be won for us by the pleading of Saint Agatha, who found favor with you by her chastity and by her courage in suffering death for the Holy Gospel. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Name change?

Some of you might be wondering at the name change, instead of Elizabeth it now says Abigail. Well that's because its been changed to my real name. One, now that I'm no longer living in America Dad does not see it as a big problem to put my real name out on the Internet. And the other reason now my blog is linked to the FMC website, I would rather not confuse people about my name.
Hope that clears things up!
Abi (my nickname)
