Are you ready? I think I’m getting there…
Elizabeth Foss wrote a beautiful article, for the Arlington Catholic Herald:
If you have a second, hop on over and read it! She has some great points worth reflecting on.
As far as our family activities… I have been busy cutting felt, in my free moments, for our Jesus Tree. It is alot of cutting! 🙂 Hopefully I will have week 3 completed soon!
Also… if you are looking for a few more ideas of things to do with your children, don’t miss Amy’s beautiful Lenten Calendar, and all the wonderful ideas over at Ruth’s blog. I LOVE Ruth’s stations of the cross candles. If we didn’t go to church for the Stations each week, I would be making them!!!
Wishing you all a very blessed Lent!

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.
