|Mary, queen of hearts,|
the model of faithfulness
to her Divine Son.
She understands those
who deal with uncertainty
and aids them with hope.
may you be blessed to seek Rebecca's
Morning with Mary
|Even with Mary, I like playing with PicMonkey's editing tools.|
As you can see, I have switched old crumbling pots to new tubs
to hold flowers for Mary. My daughter also bought some new
kinds of flowers for my Mother's Day yearly gift.
saves babies' lives, mothers' souls
a mission for God.
|For my journal pages, |
I used the following materials:top half of a reminder to hand
in Gabriel Project cans filled with money
for the Project's needs to help new mothers;
(we handed out cans to the parish on Mother's Day
and had them brought back on Father's Day-
fitting days, don't you think?)
photo of youngest son when he was a toddler;
remnants of a graduation announcement envelope;
bear from a thank you card;
water color wash
merrily I make my way
to Mornings with Mary
|Happy Father's Day,|
Dad! May you be wrapped in the
arms of our Savior.
I took all three of these photos
in the early 1960s.
I inserted the heart with an arrow
to signify my broken heart
because all three pictured here are gone.
At left is my younger brother Charlie, then Daddy
and my Momma.
This one photo was taken in my hubby's and my home.
The other two were taken in my parents' home.
|Pictured with Daddy is Little Bit. |
A warm memory I cherish
is of my Momma calling me
after my three babies (aged 1, 2 & 3)
were asleep. She told me to bring
them over so that they could
witness Little Bit's babies being born.
So I wrapped them up,
and off we went!
|Here with Daddy |
are his older brother Elbert
and younger brother George.
|A friend from my parish allowed me to|
use her photo of a church she visited
in Corey, Ohio.
It's the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation.
I find this shrine breathtaking!
I admire Lisa for her talents;
she's an artist, singer, musician, teacher
and not least of all, a great Catholic wife and mother!
Thank you, Lisa, for allowing me to
share this exquisite shrine

violas they are
experience cheer at Rebecca's
Postcard from Paradise
Kay G. commented that
her husband called these violas.
I checked on Google,
and it seems to be
the correct name.
Here is the site
that was the most helpful
to see the difference
between violas and pansies.
They both are members
of the viola species.
Nothing like learning more,
even from one's mistake!
So I repost these delightful
little gems via ABC Wednesday!
|Both these images|
were taken last year
on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

|The peonies came from |
the twins' oldest sister's yard,
a lovely addition to the table.
|happy birthday, twins!|
CJ and Alex turn 12
thank you, Lord, for them!
|I guess I was enjoying myself too much.|
Thus, this is from Christmas, 2012.
It's not a great shot of me,
but my grandchildren are very photogenic.
The twins are fraternal, as you
might infer. The lovely ladies
are their older sisters.
What a joy to this grandmother.
