A Grotto for Our Lady

A few friends will be arriving shortly to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, and I still need to bake some muffins… But, I just had to jump online real quick and post a picture of our Fruity Pebbles Grotto with you all! Didn’t it turn out cute?! We had so much fun putting it together!

I hope you are all having a very blessed feast of Our Lady of Lourdes!

    Oh it is so cute! And Mary turned out great as well. I’m going to ask again: How tall are your wooden saints?

    Sara ~ I am sorry! I must have missed your question… The Wooden Dolls I’ve used are: 7/8″x2 3/8″. I purchased them from “A Child’s Dream Come True.”

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.
