On this Beautiful Feast of the Immaculate Conception

by | Dec 8, 2010 | Baby "Rose", Prayer Request, Roses from St. Therese | 24 comments

We were just given a wonderful Christmas gift!  

The doctors office just called with the results from Rose’s echocardiogram yesterday (she did wonderfully, by the way) and her little heart is completely NORMAL!!!   

Her PDA has healed and she will not need surgery after all!   I was so happy and relieved that I started crying and really scared my husband when I called to tell him the good news.  ðŸ™‚  
God is so Good!   Thank you Dear Blessed Mother and St. Therese for interceding for our family! And thank you to everyone who offered prayers for our family and particularly our little Rose!    Our Dear Lord sure listens to you all!  May God reward you for your kindness and prayers for our family!

Deo Gratias!!!

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.
