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

Friday's Fancy ...
Its a working Friday and shortly will be heading out the door to begin the day but had to let you know that I finally finished a blanket. All it needs now is a spin in the dryer and a sweet little one to wrap itself around. It was good to be crocheting again after a bit of a break, due in part to my new found cross stitch fascination as well as the heat wave of the past week. The break in weather was just enough to happily spend the past few days with hook moving!
Having said that, the weather break is about to be broken and another heat wave is on the way (so they say). So looks like my autumn cross stitch will be reappearing and maybe get completed over the weekend. This will be my third Fall design. I would like to have a few more and then start on Christmas and winter charts.
In true addiction fashion I am building my cross stitch stash. I pick up a handful of floss each week, the goal to have each color available. I figure this way I'll have whatever I may need for a new design readily available.
Time to get moving here ... ya all have a great day, ya hear!
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.
