The Oregon Coast ~ Heceta Head Lighthouse

by | Oct 6, 2009 | Lighthouses, Pacific Ocean, Tenth Anniversary, Travel | 4 comments

From where we were watching the Sea Lions, we also had a beautiful view of the Heceta Head Lighthouse. We wanted to hike up to the lighthouse and take a tour, but since it was over a 1/2 mile from the trail head and we had dinner reservations, we decided to move on. We will have to come back and visit this one with the children sometime!

    Hi, I just love your blog. My hunny and I really didn't have a honeymoon–so wish I could go on one. We were thinking about it this year, but finanaces are a mess–maybe we will do something belated this year–however, we have our own "Twinkle Toes" baby (13 months going on 14 months now)–so not sure how to really go anywhere with a small fry around! 🙂

    It's said the house at Heceta Head is haunted. The caretaker would often put his hat upside down on the table so blessings could be poured into it. When he came back to get his hat, it was upside down.

    That's the story I was told but I don't think I believe such stories.

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.
