I just missed capturing the Air Tanker in this photo… 
Sean left early this morning for his first fire assignment this year.
Please keep him, and all firefighters, in your prayers!

    I did not realize your husband was a fireman. Praying for him and all the other firefighters.

  2. AM

    I will keep you all in prayers, Jessica.

    I pray for your family every week at Mass, but I will add Sean to my daily intentions! Peace +JMJ+

    So Scary. We have only had a forest fire once near our home and I can still remember it even though I was very young. Praying for you and Sean, and all the other firemen who work so hard.

  5. Jessica Gordon

    Most of the time he is a "Forester" but he does fight wildfires in the summer. 🙂 Thank you for the prayers!

  6. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you so very much, for all the prayers! God bless you and your family!

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.
