The Feast of St. Joseph

Today is the feast of St. Joseph.  He is the patron of  fathers, carpenters, those seeking employment, the Church and a peaceful death.  (And probably a lot more.)

Long ago, when I was waffling between boyfriends, I begged St. Joseph to intercede on my behalf and send me my Joseph.

His prayers worked.

I have a wonderful husband, a man who loves me and wants to spend time with me.  And a man who is open to life and has showered me with children.  I am forever grateful.  Thank you, God, and Thank you, St. Joseph for all your prayers.

Today, my prayer is different.  I pray that my daughter will find her St. Joseph.

In honor of today, these two built a birdhouse together and then had a treat to celebrate.

St. Joseph, pray for us and for all families, especially those who are suffering right now.

  1. From Jenn:

    I love this post! And I’ll add praying for M’s St. Joseph to my list as well. And may your boys be the best St. Joseph they can be to their future spouses!

    • From Nicole:

      Thank you! I read somewhere a long time ago about praying for your children’s spouses. With recent events, the sooner we start, the better. So sad that I missed the dates for the St. Joseph novena! I will praying for W’s wife too.

  2. From Chelsea:

    I’m going to have to say a little prayer to St. Joseph for myself…once I find my man, i’ll move onto Marianna 🙂

    • From Nicole:

      Sweetie, you know I am praying for your St. Joseph to come into your life every day. I’m just thankful he doesn’t live in Alabama! I’m pretty pleased that you haven’t followed in my footsteps with some of my dating choices.
