Garden_detailI can’t believe how fast the weeks have been flying by! We are already starting week six! The theme for this week in The Garden of the Good Shepherd: A Sticker Calendar to Count the Fifty Days of Easter is:

“Oh, What a Beautiful City!”

I haven’t had much time to try and come up with ideas for this coming week… Plus, the weeks just seem to keep getting harder! Just what kind of crafts and activities can you do for bride and groom with little ones?? Well… I wish I had better ideas, but here is what I have come up with just the same:

The City Gate : Read Revelation 21:9-14

The Temple : Read Revelation 21:22-25

Hallelujah! : Read Revelation 19:6-9

The Thrones : Read Revelation 22:1-5

  • I can’t think of ANYTHING!! Hum…. I know… I will take down the kids Puppet Show Tent and pull out the King, Queen, etc, puppets and let them put on a Royal Puppet Show! That should be fun! 🙂 (I’m sorry I can’t think of anything else!)

The Bride : Read Hosea 2:18-20

The Groom : Read Revelation 19:6-9

  • If I was going to be home, I would make Tuxedo Brownie Cups for snack time! But, since I will be gone… I will try to pre-make these for hubby and the kids.

The Crowns : Read Isaiah 62:3-5

  • To keep it simple for hubby… Take the kids out to eat at Burger King!
  • This Crown Cake is really cool though!

Thanks again, Matilda, for getting us started on this!!! If anyone else has any more ideas, I would love to hear them!

Hope you all have a wonderful week! 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.
