    Dear flowerlady.....peace & blessings to you and the family! I have checked with Canon (Church) Law re.the role of godparents in the sacrament of Baptism.Canons 872 874 lay down the requirements for a godparent. 1 The Church teaches the godparent can be man or woman or both, 2.They are to present the child for Baptism with the parents and support the child in their future faith life, 2.The godparent should haver completed their 16th birhday,unless the diocesan bishop decrees another age or it seems to the parish prriest that a just cause an exception should be allowed, 3.Be a Catholic who has been confirmed and already has received the most Holy Sacramemnt of the Eucharist. 4 must not be bound by a canonical penalty (excommunicated ) 5.A godparent is not be the father or mother of the candidate. To answer your question after this legal ramble,the answer is YES. Lucky child to have such a good godparent as you! Best wishes, Adrian

    flower lady - I don't know if there are any rules about who can be a Godmother but my Godfather is my uncle and my Godmother is my cousin.

    A little hymn for you today my friends!

    To do Your will is my desire,
    To live in You, Lord, is my life,
    To spread Your love through all the earth,
    To find in You the joy of life.

    All of my days, I sing Your praise.
    Through all my days, You are my light.
    You will shine forth through all my years,
    And joyously will bring me home.

    Well, it looks like I'll be joining you G.H.W. popcorn and t.v. might just end up what I do this evening which isn't a bad idea. I haven't been able to find my children and they won't call me back. Jazz just called and wanted me to babysit while they went to the movies. I told her ok did she think she could take me to get some shoes and she called me back in 2 minutes and said never mind the baby's godmother will keep her. AHAAA! They tickle me to death. Why didn't she just say NO, I would have still kept the baby. They are so full of stuff! That's ok I will catch them another day. Maybe tomorrow. Well enjoy your movie. Where is everybody today? Bless you, have fun. Brenda

    Hi friends! I hope you're all enjoying the weekend!
    "This is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad!!!"

    flower lady - I'm happy because you sound really good and with a great attitude! God bless you my friend! I hope you got done some of the stuff you wanted to get done today! New dresses and a pair of shoes sounds fun! I'll be looking for a good movie on TV tonight!
    P.S. I like the shirt you got Jazz!

    G.H.W. God is climbing that mountain with you. There was this funny shirt that I bought Jazz one time. She was aways pretty sure she was defeated in life. It said: it's not the dog in the fight it's the fight in the dog. No fear! That tickled her pink, and me too. She wore that tee shirt out.
    I started to join this group: Catholics Surviving Abuse, but I thought about it and decided that I don't feel like bringing all that stuff from the past back up, as far as I am concerned it's thrown in the river! I have written one poem that makes me angry every time I read it. But I will say every time I read it I feel better so it must be doing some good. Writing is good therapy enough for me. I'm still praying for all of us. I've got a lot of things I'd like to do today, hope I get it all done. It looks like it is going to be another bright and sunny day here. I really enjoyed my friend yesterday. We talked and laughed about a lot of things in the past. We have both been in the neighborhood for about 25 yrs. She lives about 5 blocks away, so we see each other all of the time. We are both silly old ladies.I like silly, silly is fun. I hope I find a ride today I want to shop. I want some new dresses and a pair of shoes, and I need to put my suits in the cleaners.I gave them to my son last week and I asked him yesterday did he get them out, come to find out he never put them in. He's still riding around with them in the back of his car. Well, they say, if you want something done do it yourself. (He makes me sick, LOL!) Have a great day! Brenda

    G.H.W, Second day so far not smoking. If you could go once you could go twice. Just take baby steps and you will be fine, I'm sure through the grace of God. In time. Our Lord will be patient with the both of us, I pray. Thank you so much for praying the Divine Mercy for me. I rested well last night too, and thank you for the jokes, we needed a good laugh.
    Horgan, No I did not know that. All that I can remember is I think his name was Bill. (Don't remember the last name) You live and you learn. I love your story about the canannite woman. Oh, by the way my little great, great, niece is a little over a yr. old, she is a living doll! Her mom and her moms parents are from Australian. Now here is the thing about the woman in your story, I do as she did; I ask God for the same thing over and over again, I never give up, and yes He has taken and long time sometimes to answer my prayers and He has even shown me a few miracles in my life, but isn't that kind of persistence a sin sometimes? I worry about that. Aren't we suppose to ask Him once or twice and let it go and assume that if you don't get what you ask for, he does not will it for you? I get afraid that I worry God and therefore he thinks that I don't trust him or am trying to force him to say yes to my prayers and that I might anger Him. What do you think? Is there a point where a line should be drawn? I feel like he's looking down on me saying," Don't you know what NO means". LOL! Is that stubborness or great faith? I do know that about me from a kid, I do not want to take no for an answer when there is something serious that I think I want or need. I'm not talking about sinful things. Well, I guess God knows how he made me to be. I don't know I get confused about how God wants me to be sometimes.
    Hi Hecares and S.K. and all, hope you are enjoing this beautiful day! I don't know what the weather is like there but it is sunny and bright here. My girlfriend just called and is on her way over, so I will chat with you guys later. Going to see what kind of snacks I can set out for her. Have a blessed day all. Brenda
