July Highlights


Flowers from dear friends on the passing of my Dad.  Thankful he's at peace.
First son turned 21 on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and got married last Sunday at Phelps Grove Park(please pray for them to enter into a more holy union).
So far I've made 159 strips for the comfort balls to be sent to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd, Houston, MO 65483-2225.  May your days be blessed!!!

Strips For Comfort Balls


On this first day of summer 2014 look what I "caught" in my son's butterfly net.  Four strips for comfort balls.  These strips are to be my summer knitting project to be sent to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd., Houston, MO 65483-2225.  It's a wonderful way to use up my stash odd balls, keep heavy knitting off my lap, and do something worthwhile.
Daniel just got back yesterday from a week long mission trip to Oklahoma City with the youth group from church.  It was a success according to him.  It sure was quiet with him gone.  We all missed him.
Hope you can find a way to help someone this summer.  A little something every day even if it's a prayer is a wonderful way to use the many gifts God gives us:~)

Civil War Reenactment

Daniel was playing the part of Lee H. Mckinley b. unknown d. Aug 10, 1863 Philadelphia National Cemetery.  The top shirt was one we had in the closet and the buttons and stripes were made using yellow Duck Tape.  His school has an annual Civil War reenactment.  It was a wonderful experience for him.

Praying For Your Children


I was inspired today by Aunt Ruthie at Sugar Pie Farm House about
praying for my children.  I hope you are inspired by her as well.

Easter Greetings

It's a beautiful sunny day here today.  I've been working on some preemie hats using this pattern.  The yarn is Lion Brand Yarns Babysoft in pastel print colorway.  We've also been busy with track meets and concerts.  It seems like all activities are busting out like spring flowers.  I pray that everyone is enjoying a most blessed Easter time.

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.
