I shot the Albatross.

I guess I owe the blog, and my readers, a few words, lest they languish.

My longsuffering thesis is still suffering. I am agonizing over it. I need to just push through and do it. I think, at least, some pieces are coming together, and I am ready for another valiant push.

I’ve been struggling. Please pray for me.

  1. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?? Miss you heaps, but praying for your thesis and more importantly, for YOU. I absolutely know that you will do a fantastic job of this thesis, and that in God’s strength, you can overcome every barrier. I will be calling down the prayers of the saints for you, dear brother.

    Jesus, have mercy on us. Mother, pray for us. St Joseph, pray for us. St Paul, pray for us. St Thomas Aquinas, pray for us. St Bede, pray for us.

    • Thank you so much, dear sister and friend. It’s comforting to know I’m thought of and missed. I miss you and all of y’all heaps, too, but I felt I should do my best to step away from distractions and try to get some work done. I will try to peek in again before it’s been another month. I pray I will have a finished draft within the next couple of weeks. Thank you so much for your prayers.

  2. Keep at it, Joseph. Whoever said that when things are at their darkest, that’s when the light is right around the corner was right. So keep going, one word at a time if you have to. We’ll be praying for you in your darkest time and cheering for you on the other side.
