the rediscovery of a little witness

In January I lost my Miraculous medal which was pretty special to me (The loss of a little witness) On Monday night I went to get some photos of Lourdes out of my case because the feast day was coming up and there, under them, was my little shiny gold medal. I don't know how it got there. I didn't go into that case in January and I know I had my medal on that morning I left for school because I never took it off. I have thought over and over how it might have got there - I am going to stop thinking now and just be thankful instead. Please don't think I am claiming any great miracle or anything like that- in fact I am not suggesting anything. I am just perplexed so I am throwing it out there; into the Universe. Most of all I am so, so, so grateful to all of you for your prayers to St Anthony who never fails me and Our Lady who is always close to each and every one of us.

Thank you!

I am taking this as proof that we should never give up hope because even the things and causes we think are lost (St Jude) can always be turned around. Things come back to us when we least expect it - as long as we keep up those prayers. This is the beauty of life.

Hmm, maybe I should have kept that in mind when I wrote that little rant yesterday about replacing the lost stuff :)

Love your blog. Thanks for finding mine and directing me here!

Haha - well I sound very calm but I am pretty prone to those rants myself. I had pretty much given up hope- well I guess you never know ;-) Thanks you so much for dropping in at my little blog and for writing yours!

I've had things like that happen before--things of value and things of little consequence to anyone but me.

I love the mysteries of life (after the lost things are found).

Sometimes there is no earthly explanation! I'm delighted for you and remember reading of how the medal was lost/ misplaced.

Thanks to you both! I love the mysteries of life too - never short of surprises - no earthly explanation necessary :-)
