Choices and Roses

I have been faced with the difficult situation of choosing a school when I didn't want to leave the one we were attending to begin with. To keep a positive attitude while touring these schools was so hard for me. I didn't want to be there. I had it narrowed down to two schools, but I could barely deal with choosing one. 

A friend suggested I pray and ask St. Therese to give me roses as a sign of which school to choose. So, since I stink at novenas, I resorted to basically talking to St. Therese off and on for the past week and a half and begging her and Jesus to give me a sign. I threw in a more formal prayer here and there, but nothing big. I never really got my sign, but I asked for clarity, and I chose a school.  

I registered them today with tears in my eyes. And on the way home I stopped to get the kids burritos for lunch and this was in front of me in the drive thru. 

Thank you Jesus, for reassuring my broken heart by allowing St. Therese to bless me with these roses. I'm in awe.



  1. YES! And that is exactly how she answers! Very amazing ways that only you would recognize ;) I wish I could tell you how many times she's given me answers like that - through various people, instances, several OMGosh! moments. You got your roses :) I am very glad to hear it. She is an incredible sister in Christ. Thanks Be To God. And God Bless you for your awesomeness.

  2. that is so great! (I suck at novenas, too.)

  3. I'm glad you got your reassurance. *hugs*
