…till daddy’s return.

My hubby was dispatched to a wildfire assignment earlier this afternoon, just as we were getting ready for a relaxing weekend!! He just arrived at the fire and it looks like they have him scheduled on the night shift for the next couple weeks. Any prayers you can spare for his safety (and my sanity!) would be very much appreciated.

    Oh, Jessica! I can’t bear it when my husband goes to a fire call, right here in town — I can only imagine what it must be like to have to experience that for “the next couple weeks!”

    You are absolutely assured of my prayers, for both him and for you!!

  2. Christine

    Your husband, you, and your whole family are in my prayers.

  3. Jamie Jo

    Oh, you are all in my prayers too.

  4. Marci

    Prayers said, even before he left (when I got off the phone with you.) His safety, and your sanity in my prayers until he returns.

  5. Renee

    Praying for your husband’s safety, your solo time with the children and the whole family. God Bless!

  6. Sara

    I’ll remember your family in my daily rosary. I can’t imagine having my husband out there fighting wildfires! God bless him.

    Thank you all for your prayers!!! They are very much appreciated. In fact, I think they have already helped! At least for now, my hubby has been assigned to a very safe position in communications. He is also only about 1 1/2 hours away from home, and we will probably be able to head up there and visit him often!! 🙂

    you got it! 🙂

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.
