A Jesse Tree Ornament Swap!

by | Nov 15, 2012 | Jesse Tree Ornament Swap | 2 comments

Speaking of Jesse Trees, I forgot to mention Jesse Tree Ornament Swaps! And guess what, Charlotte’s other friend Jessica is hosting one this year based on the symbols suggested in The Jesse Tree: A Family Craft for Advent by Catherine Fournier!  I was about to sign up, but then remembered that I have a baby shower to co-host on the 27th, two birthdays coming up in December to start planning for, and a whole bunch of Christmas gifts that I am hoping to make… I could squeeze one more thing in, right?  Maybe not… It’s not like I don’t have a Jesse Tree (or two) already!  ðŸ˜‰

Anyhow I wanted to share the link in case some of you would like to join the fun. It’s filling up fast, so click on over and sign up while you still can!

    Jessica, with all the talk about the Jesse tree I wanted to share this idea with you. Last year on esty my son found clay Jesse tree ornaments for sale. While they were beautiful they were out of our price range. My son who is 13 loves working with clay so he has been making our Jesse tree ornaments for our tree. They are made from bakeable clay and then we spray glaze when finished. They are an amazing work of art and best of all he made them so they mean more to us all. I wish I knew how to send you a photo, but I don't know how to load them to your blog? Anyway just wanted to share that thought with your readers.
    Blessings, Michelle

    I think I've seen the set you are talking about. I would love to see a picture of the set that your son is making! If you'd still like to send it you can either email it to jessica(dot)showerofroses(at)gmail(dot)com or you can actually post it on my Shower of Roses Facebook page!

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.
