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

Early Quit Today
And quite unusual to be home this early but I certainly will take it! Shortly will start supper and probably supper for the next few nights. I love when I can just pop dinner in the micro or on the stove and be ready to eat in minutes. That's part of what comes with the wonderful Fall weather, so many great things to make that taste even better the next day and with the cooling temps its a pleasure to cook. Stew, casserole, stuffed peppers all over the next few night's dinners.
Will be posting within the next few days (hopefully sooner ...maybe tonight) my scarf from July's road trip. Haven't put out a free pattern in a while so I think its about time especially since I have the cooperation of blogger to post at the moment. This hasn't been tested, but I think it will be easy enough. I did this with Royale Double Strand Crochet Thread (its like using size 3) and I love the feel and weight of this. This one will go perfectly with my brown vest, very appropriate for this time of year. Sadly, I don't have the color name of the thread ... I pulled this from my stash and the wrapper was missing. I do remember though this was a very large ball and I had paid $1.39, quite a bargain!
Time to fire up the stove, start chopping, mixing and cooking! See ya in a bit.
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.
