We seem to have a little birdie in a nest on one of the pillars outside our front door… The bird flies off every time we open the door, but I left it open for a little while and was able to take a picture with my zoom lens from my living room. I know very little about birds, so can one of you tell me why it keeps pushing it’s eggs out of the nest? You can see one sitting on the ledge about to fall, and another was on the deck the other day and, being just after Easter, was mistaken for a Cadbury Mini Egg and almost eaten by one of my children! :S
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.
