Celebrating Epiphany

by | Jan 29, 2018 | Advent and Christmas, Christmas 2017, Epiphany | 1 comment

Out of the Orient they came ariding
Three noble kings, of humble heart and mild;
They came to see the Blessed Lord of Heaven
Descend to earth, to be a little child. 
Precious gifts of gold and myrrh and incense,
Bringing God the gifts which God had made;
Low the kings in homage bowing,
At the feet of Mary laid.
–  The Kings, The Christmas Book

January 6th:  I haven’t been baking much this Christmas, at least not since recommitting to 100% AIP on the 1st, but there will be a crown shaped king’s cake for Epiphany! #thanksforthehelpgirls

Happy Epiphany! 👑✨ {we are saving the cake for after Mass tomorrow since one of the boys had a high school basketball game over at the coast and didn’t get home until really late tonight – but we still had plenty of Christmas treats and a family movie night}


Stacks of gifts from the Wise Men – also saved for after Mass

    How nice that your daughters are such a big help to you in the kitchen. The Epiphany King's Cake looks so delicious as does the scrumptious Christmas cookie tree! Yummy! You captured such sweet photos of Baby Grace celebrating her very first Epiphany. Darling outfit…

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.
