On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Picture Books, Precious Dolls and “Roses from Heaven” Punch! 
Our family had such a fun JOY filled day today!  After Mass, we ended up spending most of the day at a couple Christmas Events in town.  It was so nice to come home to shredded-beef for burritos, which had slowly cooked in the crock pot all day.  Yum!    After dinner the boys helped their Daddy put lights on this year’s Christmas Tree (which they cut down last night!) while the girls helped prepare for Santa Lucia Day in the morning!   Before bed, Hubby read the children the wonderful picture book The Story of Our Lady of Guadalupe Empress of the Americas.  After reading it, Hubby pointed out that it was written in 1948 and the gorgeous illustrations are from 1926.  It really is such a great book!   I purchased it for our History course this year, and am very pleased to have it in our collection.  
Happy Gaudete Sunday and Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!

    Hello Jessica,

    Beautiful celebration! We have the very same book, purchased years ago. It's been one of the best 'book' purchases I've ever made.

    Have a wonderful week!

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.
