    Oh, my, what a find this is!!! I was doing a google search to find pictures for our Good Friday dinner (based on Alice at Cottage Blessings’ Liturgical Tea for Good Friday) when I happened on your site.

    You have a new fan!!!

    I had left our Jesse Tree up for Lent, and put little pictures from the stations of the Cross on it, but what a wonderful idea this is–I will definitely save this series of posts for next year! How talented you are, your symbols are beautiful. I wish I had seen your site 6 weeks ago!! 🙂

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.
