Shower of Photos 2009 :: Day 8

by | Apr 9, 2009 | Kids Artwork, Lent, Shower of Photos, Stations of the Cross | 2 comments

*I never did have a chance to take any photos yesterday… At least I uploaded one to my Daybook. Does that count? Even though I didn’t take the picture, it does make me smile! 😉

Here are a few (more) pictures I took of Chiquita today. The lighting is awful in our school room, but these were taken at the best time of day (late morning). I also ventured out of my comfort zone and played around with the manual settings some more. I also shut the flash off, and it really did improve the colors! (Thanks Jen!)

    I have to stand much stiller without the flash and sometimes actually prop the camera (I don’t have a tripod) but the colors are soooo much better, aren’t they?

    For the longest time I couldn’t even get my non-flash pictures to not be totally blurry, but I changed the ISO (shutter speed) to 1600 and it helped so much! And yes, it really does help the colors and captures so much more natural light!

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.
