On the subject of Iamschist herself, I'll add this in:
I am missing my cat, Pumpkin. He's been missing now for three days. Yesterday, I literally walked through the woods for hours on end, searching for
him, and he has not come back. Today, I am closing the shop early to go search for him again. I have become quite discouraged.
I, too, have been looking at her old posts this afternoon, and one of them was on the subject of St. Anthony, patron saint of lost souls (lost
anything, really). I invoked St. Anthony last night while searching for my little guy, begged him to please find my beloved and bring him back to me
safe and sound. I have felt all day long this horrible depression because I miss him so very much. He is my familiar, and anyone who is a Witch will
immediately understand...our bond is deeper than family. I feel like a part of myself is gone.
I am not sure if I was directed to that old thread by design or if it was serendipity, but lo and behold, there are her words, jumping out at me:
Today is the Saint day of Saint Anthony of Padua. Better know perhaps as the Patron Saint of Lost Things. I have experience with this, and can say
for over 30yrs I have petitioned him when I was unable to find something. Only one time have I not found it, and that was something it turned out, had
been stolen. It may be a day, it may be much much longer, but this guy is the real deal. You don't have to take my word. Test him for yourself.
I don't know if it will prove to be true, but I plan on being out in the woods, in the pouring rain, until I find my little dude or it gets too dark
to look anymore today. And that post gives me hope that I have not had all day. We will see if she's right, in due time, but I thought I'd share
that with you all just the same. Blessed Be Iamschist, wherever you may be. )O(
