Courage, dear heart :: Narnia vaLENTines
“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, “Courage, dear heart,” and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan’s, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
With St. Valentine’s Day falling on Ash Wednesday this year, Chiquita decided to pass out a quote from her favorite book series
, along with a pre-lenten treat and promises to pray for each of her vaLENT
ines. She picked two of our Rycraft Cookie Stamps and a gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe.

While she had the cookie stamps out, she also made a batch of Cream Cheese Candy.
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.
