Yesterday, knowing that we're trying to sell our house, a co-worker asked me if I had buried a statue of St. Joseph in my yard yet. I hadn't the slightest clue what she was talking about! Then she handed me some print-outs telling about why you should bury a statue of St. Joseph to help sell your house.
I called the local Christian bookstore and lo and behold - the cashier knew exactly what I was talking about and told me to come on in. So last night I picked up my own St. Joseph statue for the front yard. She instructed me on what to do with it - bury him upside down, near the for sale sign, facing the street. Easy as pie! So tonight I'll be digging a small hole and doing just that.
Now - granted - I am not Catholic. I was raised Baptist and am a practicing Methodist, so I don't know all that much about Saints. However, my good friend Kim shed some light on it all for me yesterday, as she probably picked up on the fact that I was a little hesitant and leary of praying to a Saint rather than praying to God about selling my house. However I apparently shouldn't have any concerns, as I am not to pray to the Saint. She told me that a Saint is believed to be able to intercede on your behalf - and also plead your needs to God. So you aren't praying to them ... you're asking them for help as well as you continue to pray to God, which I do all the time anyhow, but have reeeeally been praying for this house to sell! God knows where we're going to be and when ... this is all His plan and only He knows! We have faith!
So with that said, good ol' St. Joe is going in my front yard tonight. Why not, right?
I'm back with HUGE NEWS!!
