The ever changing story of dealing with auto insurance adjustors, mechanics, rental car agencies is enough to drive a person to madness!! Today will go down in my personal history post car crash as a day I am happy to forget. Countless phone calls and so many messages saying "Please press one for .....Please press 8 for...." Hey what happened to numbers 2-7 huh???
I am lucky though and I need to recognize that fact! It could have easily been a situation where I was laying in a hospital bed or worse right now. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that what prevented a very worse case senerio was The Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Someday it will be my number that comes up on the center row of this blog just as it will be yours. Today, rather than lamenting over dealing with countless phone calls I need rather to rejoice that I am here and be thankful for this day- as frustrating as it was- for today is truly a gift. Today I get to proclaim the Mercy of God one more time to you. Tomorrow I place in the Loving hands of Divine Providence and in Our Lady who leads me further to Her Divine Son.
Thanks be to God for days like this for His Mercy endures forever!!
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

Psalm 90
"Lord, you have been our refuge
from generation to generation.
Before the mountains were born,
before earth and heaven were conceived,
from all time to all time, you are God.

You turn men into dust,
you say to them "go back, children of men".
A thousand years in your sight
are like yesterday, that has passed;
like a short watch in the night.

When you take them away, they will be nothing but a dream;
like the grass that sprouts in the morning:
in the morning it grows and flowers,
in the evening it withers and dries.

For we are made weak by your anger,
thrown into confusion by your wrath.
You have gazed upon our transgressions;
the light of your face illuminates our secrets.

All our days vanish in your anger,
we use up our years in a single breath.
Seventy years are what we have,
or eighty for the stronger ones;
and most of that is labour and sadness –
quickly they pass, and we are gone.
Who can comprehend the power of your wrath?
Who can behold the violence of your anger?
Teach us to reckon our days like this,
so that our hearts may be led at last to wisdom.

Turn to us, Lord, how long must we wait?
Let your servants call on you and be answered.
Fill us with your kindness in the morning,
and we shall rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
Give us joy for as long as you afflicted us,
for all the years when we suffered.

Let your servants see your great works,
and let their children see your glory.
Let the glory of the Lord God be upon us:
make firm the work of your hands.
Make firm the work of your hands."
