Patriotic Berry Pie

by | Jul 2, 2021 | Happy Birthday, July 4th, Precious Moments: 01, Summer | 1 comment

Can you believe it’s July already?!? I just don’t know where the months go anymore… They are flying by faster than ever! I’m really trying to slow down and enjoy these summer days with everyone home. I’ve had a little help from the weather this week… With temps reaching ridiculously hot up here in the North Idaho, most of our scheduled plans and activities have been canceled due to the dangerous heat wave! We are just praying that this isn’t followed by more wildfires and smoke… 

We just celebrated a couple birthdays in June! I’m hoping to share pictures sometime, but I happened to run across these from our America loving oldest son’s 20th birthday last year and thought they are perfect to share now, with the 4th of July coming up this weekend!  

He had requested “Berry Pie!” instead of birthday cake, after an afternoon rafting with friends, and I ended up surprising him with a couple Patriotic Berry Pies! It was quick and easy to make with the help of Red Hills Fruit Company Tart Cherry Filling, Blueberry Filling and some refrigerated pie crusts. 

After assembling the pies, I brushed the crust with an egg wash and sprinkled on some sugar before popping them in the oven. 
The berries bubbled over a bit, so it didn’t turn out as pretty as it looked before going in the oven, but the birthday boy loved them just the same! 
If you are looking for other ideas for the 4th of July you can find many more in the archives

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.
