Weekly Devotion - January 1stHappy New Year!

Sunday we recognized the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as they took Jesus to the Temple. There they encountered Simeon and Anna who had awaited the coming of the Lord for the duration of their long lives. They were able to see beyond the plain appearances of the Holy Family because they never ceased to worship God.

We pray together: St. Jude, together we seek happiness and peace. Walk with me and my family in the New Year, always protecting us from sin and harm.

    i live in cape town s africa with elderly parents.there is a lot of psycho problems & abuses . we now are having an intense drought & possibly all the taps will be dry before april . this already happened in smaller towns but not a big city like this . this drought is not just climate change -it is also political & corruption & the dreaded terrifying african PHAROAH DROUGHT DISEASE – & very soon south africa could easily become a dry sahara desert forever.many people here reject water . there is not love for animals so they do not care so the drought increases & the sand is dry powder & any water somehow is unearthly .& there are water psych vandals everywhere . the spirit of water is gone & hurt.they allow grey water for the evil golf course but not for the police horses who do not even have shade & are traumatised . they feel drought encourages tourism & hunting & perversion . do you think any prayers could ever teach them to grow thousands millions of trees ? why do they not even plant trees?

    at home again my father just
    abused me . twice over xmas new year he said he will let me have 8 weeks holiday this year . but tonight he shouted & said i am a liar he never said that . it is too difficult for me to manage in this difficult household & no-one ever realised how much of a problem there is & just more abuses.as well , my father can put up a large or 2 smaller water tanks & buy the grey water for at least some tasks . maybe our house is awkward but still somehow the tanks could be delivered . to but 1 or 2 tanks to have purchased water delivered -is not as expensive as getting the whole irrigation system where your own grey water from washing machine is piped with pump to the garden etc.& as well , if all the taps close soon this will not work anyway .
    i am worried about my father’s words tonight about my holiday . now i have to tell my friends where i was going . unless he changes his mind again . there are so many spies. he can be deadly dangerous. i never demanded anything . the issue arose when he asked me to find a boat cruise for them & i could stay overseas if i went half way with them & they come home by boat. & this was generalised & he said i can go because there was now no sick dogs at home , & i used to go every year anyway . he never said he is too old or sick etc. he is just feeding off people & harming them & has many dangerous friends . i can not go to the police for help about my father any more. these days they are themselves the same.it is absolute emergency here on many issues.

    Father, I pray for the conversion of my friend . There is definitely interest in it. A nudging in the right direction. I pray that I will grow stronger in that special someone’s heart. I cannot believe those who want to escape the life I want. There must be something wrong deep within. I pray in the name of Christ, Amen
