Lent begins Tomorrow

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!

How can we complain when He Himself was considered ‘as one struck by God and afflicted’ (Isa. 53:4) ~ St. Therese of Lisieux

    You have really great ideas. I wish I had the energy to make these crafts : ) I think your Lenten calendar is wonderful! I’m glad you like the candles. Thanks for putting a link on your post. Have a 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.

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.
