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

What's Doing Wednesday
In my small world of yarn and thread and hooks I'm still working on my Christmas afghan. Do I dare say this has been going on for over a year now (having been packed away for a significant amount of time)? In other words ... slow pokin' it. I have managed to get 4 strips together with another two to be joined leaving 4 more strips, 28 squares to go. I really liked this afghan at the beginning but some of my enthusiasm has seemed to wane, however, I will persevere. I think once its all together and the border put on I'll be quite pleased.
Now enter my usual fickleness ... look what I saw at Debi'sHooks and Yarns ... ohhhhh, it has me distracted. And you know what that means ... this could be on the hook before week's end ... another project! And how I love projects. The way I figure, the more the merrier! Thanks Debi for sharing another wonderful pattern, you're keeping me happy.
Oh by the way ... I'm looking for a pumpkin type crochet wearable for our little grandpumpkin ... any suggestions?
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.
