Another Update on the Run for the Little Flowers Virtual 5K



Please excuse the numerous updates, but I need to make sure that everyone sees this.  I will be cross posting, so that people know where we are at.  First, we are at 193 runners/walkers!  We have far surpassed the goal of having 147 runners/walkers; one runner for every 1 MILLION orphans.  I am amazed by your generosity! And, although I do not have an official total yet, we will have reached our goal of covering a Nanny's salary for 6 months! Praise God!

Now, to the "business" end of this email.  And this makes me both happy and sad. Happy, because it means we are reaching our goals. Sad, because we will not be able to accommodate many more runners/walkers who want shirts.

First, the medals are gone!!  So anyone who has registered starting mid-day October 4, 2012, will NOT receive a medal.  I only ordered 150.

Second, there are only a limited amount of shirts left.  I am trying to keep these numbers up to date. As of tonight, this is what I have left:

Youth small- 1
Youth Medium - 0
Youth Large - 1
Adult small -0
Adult Medium - 11
Adult Large - 1
Adult X-L - 0

If you try to register and do not see your size on the side bar PayPal link, that means that that size is no longer available.

Once all the shirts are gone, I will close registration, BUT I WILL STILL ACCEPT DONATIONS for Little Flower Projects up until October 20, 2012.

If you still really want a shirt, but your size is gone, please email me (katiepetko at yahoo do com), comment below, or contact me via our Facebook page.  If there is enough interest, I can order more shirts. Just note that you would not get one until after the run is over.

Thank you all for your patience with me and this fundraiser.  This is the first time I have taken a fundraiser like this on and I am learning the ropes as I go!

Thank you, especially, for your generosity to the precious "Little Flowers" with Little Flower Projects!









Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …
