Deo Grátias!

Thanks be to God!

Today my hubby had his follow up appointment, and, for now, everything is fine!!! I was so happy to hear that the biopsy came back benign! There is one spot that the doctor wants to watch, so he will need to go back, next year, for yet another colonoscopy. At least they will be keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t turn into anything serious.

Thank you all for your prayers!

O Lord my Savior and my Master, I, Thine unprofitable servant, with fear and trembling give thanks unto Thy loving goodness for all Thy benefits which Thou hast poured so abundantly upon me, Thy servant. I fall down in adoration before Thee and offer Thee, O god, my praises; with fervor I cry to Thee: O God,deliver me henceforth from all adversities and mercifully fulfill in me such of my desires as may be expedient for me. Hear me, I entreat Thee, and have mercy, for Thou art the Hope of all the ends of the earth, and unto Thee, with the Father, and the Holy Spirit, be ascribed glory, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

    Also know we are praying for a safe (and fun!) trip to NE and also for your sweet son’s 1st Holy Communion. So many fantastic Sacraments! The Graces will be flowing. Just make sure you take lots of pictures and lots of tissues. 🙂
    Thanks for all that you post about keeping the Faith alive through your beautiful family and all you do to inspire so many of us to keep striving for more! (or less, if you’re talking weight or clutter! 🙂
    God bless you, dearheart, and keep up the wonderful work you do everyday!
    PS Noelle was wearing one of your sister’s outfits yesterday! It was a blue and yellow-green shirt and skirt set with dainty little flowers. SO CUTE! Thank your sisters for me! 🙂

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.
