Christmas Giveaway Reminder & Prayer Request

by | Dec 3, 2015 | Advent and Christmas, Christmas 2015, Giveaway, Prayer Request | 19 comments

I hope your Advent is off to a beautiful and blessed beginning as we prepare for Christmas!

Have you entered the “Sleighful of Giveaways” I am currently hosting here at Shower of Roses? I have 31 PRIZES to giveaway with a combined value of over $1,200! The giveaway will remain open through December 7th and the winners will be announced in the giveaway post on December 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception!

For some reason Facebook has blocked the direct link to my Christmas Gift Ideas {Plus a Sleighful of Giveaways}… With the countless hours that post took to create, and Facebook usually being the most effective way I have to share posts, it’s been a little frustrating that they are not allowing the link to be shared. I have tried to contact Facebook many times over the past couple days without any success. Oh well. I’m hoping that those of you who would like to share the link over at Facebook can share the link to this post instead? Thank you for your help and I apologize for the inconvenience!

UPDATE: Facebook has finally unblocked the link! Thank you all for your help! 🙂

May God reward you all for all the prayers for my mom! We appreciate them so much! Can I ask you for one more favor? Yesterday my mother-in-law was hospitalized and my father-in-law received his results from some recent tests. They both have serious medical conditions and are in need of urgent prayers. We are offering our St. Andrew Christmas Novena for my mom and my husband’s parents. Could you please offer a prayer for Sean’s parents too? Thank you!

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.

Our Family

Sean & Jessica, Captain-23, Ranger-22, Twinkle Toes-20, Chiquita-19, Snuggles-16, Rose-14, Bud-12, Grace-6 and Joy-4 (blog nicknames)

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.
