Does your blog have a patron saint for 2013 yet? Mine does! Mine does! (I have another saint for my private life because I don’t want to exasperate the poor saint more than necessary.)
The Archangel Raphael picked my little ole blog through conversion diary’s patron saint uh, picker. I know, right? It’s not enough that this archangel and I always had a connection but to have it emphasized for this year just feels special. Like this could be the year he grants those three favors I begged for or a turning point for something.

So I’m taking nine days off to do a novena and regroup with the patron saint of my writing hands. Before my one year blog anniversary comes on the last day of the novena, I need to discern if I should continue, slow down, take a break or end blogging. My third novel’s been on the backburner far too long because blogging and meeting bloggers/readers has just been way more fun than having dialogues with characters from a book. I’m also considering if writing articles needs to be the focus of my hand. Or if I should just simply maintain status quo –which is: write as the Spirit leads.
Frankly, the status quo seems disorganized. (Sorry, Holy Spirit). What I mean is: this harried year has left me feeling spread out too thin, short-changing my family life and wishing I could multiply myself to four people or bi-locate here and there. Hence, I am pleading with heaven through the intercession of Archangel Raphael: I need a plan of action here, Lord. I would appreciate if you my beloved friends could utter a prayer for me. All you have to do is repeat: “Anabelle Hazard needs a plan of action, Lord.” Easy peasy. (By the way, your input is also welcome. Feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or fill up the combox)
I’ll see you on my anniversary. Get ready with your party hats, blowers and frosted-sprinkled cupcakes but meanwhile don’t forget: “Anabelle Hazard needs a plan of action Lord. Hail Mary…”
