Watching the Solar Eclipse
6:34 pm  (Wishing my camera would capture the full “Ring of Fire” and not just the bottom edge)
6:35 pm – Another attempt…
6:36 pm – Looks more like an eyeball, instead of an eclipse! 
7 shots taken locally by a friend –  This is what we saw through the special glasses.
Made me wish I had a better lens and filter for taking pictures of the sun! It was awesome!!

    So cool Jessica. We were bummed that we were too far east to see it. Another time!

    Thanks for sharing these pictures. We missed it because we didn't have glasses. It certainly is beautiful!

    We almost missed it as well. Hubby had forgotten the glasses at work, and just as the eclipse was about to begin he went to pick them up! He arrived home just in time. 🙂

    I didn't hear anything about it here in Indiana. I wonder if we could see it here? HUM. The pictures are great though!

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.
