I don’t think I have mentioned it, but my hubby has been gone all week, and won’t be home till tonight. It has made for a challenging week, not to mention the fact that I am once again without a washing machine…

Last Sunday, before he left, he and Rascal worked on carving Rascal’s pumpkin. Rascal was determined to carve “The Ascension” which proved to be rather challenging…

Anyway, Rascal did a great job. I kind of think it looks like an Angel… But either way, it turned out pretty good, don’t you think?

Captain is working on his right now. He is carving “The Sacred Heart of Jesus!” I probably won’t have time to post before we leave for out All Saints’ Party… But I promise I will soon! 🙂

I hope you all have a very blessed All Hallows’ Eve!!

    What neat pumpkins! I’m in your corner for the husband gone thing. It’s hard! Glad that he’ll be home soon; mine just came home last night after a month of absence (with weekends home). Hope you are feeling well!
    God bless you!

    Your pumpkins are beautiful. What a wonderful idea to carve religious reminders into pumpkins. While out last night with the children, we saw a pumpkin carved with an image of Barak Obama!
    Hope you feel well.
    God Bless!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
