In the Woods Today. . .

The past few weeks I have been receiving afternoon emails from my husband with more pictures of what he has been seeing while working.

Some days I just love the pictures he sends. . . 

Taken on June 20th
I just love seeing pictures of baby deer!

… other days, not so much! 

Taken on June 27th
Yep… He was only 2 feet away from this guy before hearing the rattle.  Scary!

    Scary—he's looking straight at the camera (your husband!)!!!

  2. Maggie, ofs

    Oh MY! That picture made my blood run cold. How scary!

    I know! I couldn't believe he stopped long enough to take a picture before picking up a rock. . . There was no way he was going to leave that snake there to get him on the way back (there was just one way in and out of where he was headed). He wears his boots in the forest, but that was a BIG snake!

    I was thinking what a joy it would be to work in the woods watching mama deer and their babies… then the snake and thought, well, maybe not.

    Be careful!!!

    Oh my. My hubby was in beach water once when he saw a baby shark swimming around. I think a rattle snake would be a bit more frightening.

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.
