Congratulations JOY{filled} Family

by | May 9, 2017 | Godparents | 8 comments

All is well! Our sweet baby was born on May 8 at 2:01pm. 
I‘m recovering now that I’m over the major nausea hurdle (8hrs). 
So much gratitude goes out to my spiritual benefactors. 
Deo gratias! 

Thank you to everyone who has been praying. You all are amazing! 
Together we were able to send a spiritual bouquet including (at least!)…
1,089 Our Fathers
9,659 Hail Marys
1,087 Glory Be’s
… plus a couple extra Mass intentions and a few candles lit at churches! 
May God reward you all for your prayers and kindness!  
There is still time to contribute to the virtual shower gift (a new DockATot) for the baby as well.

    No, I don't, but I'm thinking about ordering one for this baby. For our last two we used a combination of a Moses Basket (all around the house) and a First Year's Close and Secure Sleeper (similar to this) in our bed for at night, but we don't have them anymore.

    I know I'm late in commenting on this glorious occasion, but it's never too late to add some prayers for this blessed family! The grandkids and I will say some prayers today to add to this sweet Spiritual Bouquet.

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.
