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
Crafting plans ... that's what. Since the wool festival last Saturday and some recent knitting web surfing the I want to try the knitting needles ... again itch is returning. Not to mention a new itch for rug hooking. Goodness, it seems like everything I see I want to make or learn to make. Just one of those people I guess who enjoy creating things. Oh, I do enjoy shopping, but, in my opinion, the ready made doesn't really hold a candle to the handmade. I still have a few "seasonal" blankies that I want to do for my little pumpkin (crochet) but putting knitting back on the to do list. We have a wonderful yarn shop not to far from here and they hold Saturday morning classes. Their Fall class is currently underway but will check and see what the Winter project is going to be. I think maybe it best to do something like that then I will have someone to oversee and assist.
And yes, a small rug project. Something for a nice wall hanging. Now to look for some supplies and a pattern.
The only problem ... not enough time! We'll get there, I'm sure.
Enjoy your day with whatever medium you are using.
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.
