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

Sweet Results of the Weekend
Arrived at MIL's yesterday afternoon to find the daughter of one of my son's friends making us some peanut butter cookies. These were absolutely wonderful. I loved these just like this and then found out there would be peanut butter frosting and chocolate. Oh my!
The frosting was delicious. Guess who licked the bowl. She initially printed out a recipe and then adapted it to her liking. This is a 17 year old who loves baking, I think she will go far. I could picture a wonderful bakery, with a side room of yarn ... now that would be some time of joy ... wonderful, delectable sweets, cup of tea and crochet.
And while she was busy baking I was busy crocheting. A very simple hotpad. Just seven rows of cotton, 10 inches from point to point. Pattern to be posted shortly.
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.
