An Irish Blessing

by | Mar 17, 2012 | St. Patrick's Day | 7 comments

May you always have work for your hands to do,

May your pockets hold always a coin or two,

May the sun shine bright on your windowpane,

May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain,

May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

On this St. Patrick’s Day, 
may you all be richly blessed!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! My beloved Grandpa Mack's parents came to America from Ireland shortly before he was born… so St. Patrick's Day is a special feast for us! We did the exact same with the hot cocoa… it was in the 80's today, but it was still yummy, especially the white chocolate around the rim! +JMJ+

    Can you share what you did with the hot cocoa or is it like your V-day one?

    It's pretty much the same as our St. Valentine's Day Cocoa. 🙂

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.
