Prayer To The Wound Of Jesus' Shoulder

~~~*+*~~~
O most loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God,
I, a miserable sinner, salute and worship
the most sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder
on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy cross,
which so tore Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy Bones
as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater
than any other wound of Thy most blessed Body.

I adore Thee, O Jesus most sorrowful;
I praise and glorify Thee, and give Thee thanks
for this most sacred and painful Wound,
beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain,
and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy cross,
to be merciful to me, a sinner,
to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins,
and to lead me on toward heaven
along the Way of the Cross.
Amen.

Making Progress One Purr At A Time

Michael, being on the autism spectrum, has had a difficult time feeling comfortable around animals.  This is a picture of the first time he allowed Bobby on his lap.  Since then Michael's had no trouble opening the door to let Bobby out if he wants to go.  He even volunteers a pat or two.  Our baby is growing up and making great progress!  Thanks be to God!!!

A Little Something For Teacher

Daniel and I worked on this little gift for his ROC teacher.

Growing


Peas, beans and corn are coming up in our little experimental garden.

This Year For Lent...

Things are a changing around here.  For Lent this year I am deep cleaning my house.  I keep thinking of the Bible verse of thou art dust and dust thou shall return.  Why do we have so much stuff?!!  I'm getting quite a workout as well.  Almost to the point of exhaustion.  What exhaustion our dear savior suffered in the desert and while carrying the cross!!!  Dear God forgive us for we know not what we do!!! 
I finally got rid of my baby's crib.  We have a large pile of goods that will be going to our local DAV (Disabled American Veterans).  We have three medium bags full of pull tabs that will go to our local Ronald McDonald House.  There are many bags full of books that will go to our local library for their bi-annual book sale.  I have some craft supplies that are going to another good home. 
This past Saturday my husband and I watched the movie "Mary of Nazareth" at the Cine 16.  It was full of priests, nuns and other lay people, mostly of the older variety.(Having recently turned the big 5-0 I include myself in that variety;~P)  It felt very holy.  Many tears were shed.  It was a movie worth having and sharing.
I've still so much to do but must pace myself as well.  I'm praying for all who visit this humble blog.  May you all feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in a mighty way my dear brothers and sisters!!!   Amen!

Looking Forward To 2014


Happy New Year!  Looking forward to an awesome year.  Looking forward to finishing up: a round blanket, more burial buntings/hat sets, preemie hats, other miscellaneous knitting projects and some cross stitch projects.  Looking forward to planting a nice bigger raised-bed garden.  Looking forward to turning 50.  Looking forward to making the most of the days God has given me to do good deeds and praise His Holy name.  So grateful for many many blessings He provides each and every day!  Hope you all have a year long celebration and make 2014 a happy and holy one!!!

Meowy Christmas!


Bobby the cat sure does love his human man.  When he's not being cuddled he's usually laying between his human's knees and having a good nap.  Such is the life of one spoiled kitty;~)
