I am currently in a point of my life that I never expected to be.  God has opened a door to my life that I never intended on going through, however, I would not change it for anything... not for one of the 6 babies I have lost since 10/2003, not for a healthy body, not for, well, ANYTHING!  I thank God for being with me during this time, for sending His Holy Spirit to me to help me and guide me to Him, His Blessed Mother, the saints that are in communion with Our Lord in Heaven right now, and finally leading me closer to His one, true, and apostolic Church... the Roman Catholic Church!
May these verses help you, and provide you hope in times of need, despair, and the wonder of how to live when a new and unexpected cross arrives in your life.
All of the following verses were taken from the Douay-Rheims Bible.
"Then Jesus said to his disciples: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it."
Matthew 16:24-25
"And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation.  And he was withdrawn away from them a stone's cast: and kneeling down, he prayed, saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done."
St. Luke 22:40-42
"And behold thy cousin, Elizabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: Because no word shall be impossible with God.  And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to thy word."
Luke 1:36-38
"I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercy of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, your resonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be reformed in the newness of your mind: that you may prove what is the good, and the acceptable, and the perfect will of God."
Romans 12:1-2
"And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do...  And Jesus crying with a loud voice, said: Father, into they hands I commend my spirit.  And saying this, he gave up the ghost."
St. Luke 23:34,46
The Magnificat
"And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God, my Savior.  Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.  For he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name.  And his mercy is from generation to generations, to them that fear him.  He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.  He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exhalted the humble.  He hath filled the hungry with good things and the rich he hath sent away empty.  He hath received Israel, his servant, being mindful of his mercy.  As he spoke to our father, to Abraham, and to his seed, forever."
Luke 1:46-55
Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live: and that thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and obey his voice, and adhere to him (for he is thy life, and the length of thy days)...
Deuteronomy 30: 19-20
I will continue to add more as these are not the only verses that lead my life.

As a result of feeling the call to fully honor our Blessed Mother, on December 13, 2003, I began a new discussion board.  This board is for every devoted Catholic woman.  She may be married or single; she may already have a family or just starting one; she may be trying to conceive or using natural family planning to avoid for now; she may be pregnant or facing the cross of infertility.  We may look very different, or we may look oddly familiar.  However, no matter what our lives look like, the one thread that binds us together is our devotion to the Roman Catholic's faith and doctrines.  Please stop by.  We would love for you to be a part of our family at "Handmaidens of the Lord".  You may access our home by clicking the following blinkie...
