Cocoa Pebbles Grotto

 On the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes
Saint Bernadette and the Miracle of Lourdes • Cocoa Pebbles Grotto
Our grotto was made by Chiquita this year and (quite appropriately) turned out hard as rock.
I just helped break it apart and pile it up!

O Lady of Bernadette, with the stars of heaven in your hair and the roses of earth at your feet, look with compassion upon us today as you did so long ago on Bernadette in the Grotto of Lourdes. 
Our Lady of Lourdes, ora pro nobis!

    Jessica, you and your blog have truly been such an inspiration to me over the many years of raising my family! My children and I love to look at the pictures in your blog and see the beautiful way your family celebrates the many Feast Days of the liturgical year. May God Bless you and your beautiful family with His Abundant Love, Joy, Grace, and Peace. Thank you for continuing to be a Light in this world!

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.
