Make yourself familiar
with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen they are present with you.

...and the hook lost.
Can you believe that there was no crocheting done today! I really was going to try and work on my December Doily but got puttering with Christmas decorations and lost track of time ... here is a bit of the results.
See this angel, she really is beautiful. I have had her for about 15 years. One morning when I arrived at work I found this box, beautifully wrapped, sitting in the hallway at the door to my office. This angel is what was inside. There was a card addressed to me and a nice sentiment for a happy holiday but without a name. It certainly was a lovely jesture and I always thought I knew who may have left her but she wouldn't say she did. Each Christmas that I take her out I silently thank her giver for this treasure she gave me.
The snowmen have taken their place in bay window. I saw in a magazine a large white cup and saucer with greens in it ... the cup and saucer was $195 ... I had these cups and dishes and stuck my dollar store trees in them ... far cry from
The lighted angel is new this year ... a gift from my son, a treasure.
That's just a peek ... will get better pictures another time. Time for some rest, hopefully will finish tomorrow ... maybe the decorating and the doily.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's Prayer for Spiritual Adoption
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the preborn child that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.
Glory of The Season
Almighty God, Father of all nations, For freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus. We praise you and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, The foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good. Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties; By your grace may we have the courage to defend them, For ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land. We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, And in the name of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, In the unity of the Holy Spirit, With whom you live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is special ...
Today is God's gift to you, how you use it is your gift to God
Before the Threshold of My Day
I've much to do today, dear Lord, But let me kneel a bit Before the threshold of my day That I may enter it With mind serene and heart made fresh with fragrant heavenly dew. That every moment of the day I'll be reflecting you.
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way
Let this knowledge settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance,
praise and love. It is there for each and
every one of us.
