Looking Down…

… 110 feet, from the top of a lookout tower.  Apparently it doesn’t look like there is much work left to do (at least at the fire complex where my husband has been working – we have smoky skies here at home) and he will be heading home tomorrow!

    St. Anthony, ora pro nobis! (he's the patron of folks in high places, which Mary Rose tells me – she learned that he is the patron of paratroopers!) Did he look out and quote Saruman while he was up there? 😉 SO glad to hear he will be coming home soon! Deo Gratias, and hooray for all of you!

    I asked him that when he called home yesterday morning, Kimberlee, and his reply was "Who asked that?!" 🙂 (Knowing that it most likely wasn't me.) We are all so thankful that he is safely home again!

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.
