Our Precious New Goddaughter

by | Oct 24, 2011 | Baptisms, Godparents | 4 comments

Lord, surround this child with goodness,
lead her in Your light each day;

Help her walk the path You’ve chosen,
guide her steps along the way.

Teach her, Lord, to trust your wisdom
with a faith forever new;

Keep her from all harm, and bless her;
with Your grace and gladness, too.

 It was such a blessing to be able to attend the beautiful baptism and spend some time with Charlotte and her wonderful family.   I am sure going to miss them all when I fly home tonight… Hopefully it won’t be too long before Cupcake gets to meet her Godfather and the rest of my family!
You can visit Charlotte’s blog to see a few more pictures!

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.
