Please Pray…

by | Nov 6, 2010 | Prayer Request | 4 comments

I came home from town this evening to an email from my friend Shelly asking for prayers for Liz.
“This sweet family is awaiting the inevitable. Liz has made it to 41 weeks carrying her 7th child. She is so thankful for the extra time with her son, Jedidiah Joseph. You see, Jedi has Trisomy 13…”
We have recently been praying for Liz’s brother, Father Kevin Peek, and will most definitely be adding Liz and her family to our prayers as well. . .  Will you please join me?
I just visited Liz’s blog and saw the beautiful picture of her with her precious little one, who was indeed born today!! 
“Please drop by Liz’s blog
Leave her some words of comfort and peace.
Let her know you’re praying.”

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.

Our Family

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.
