Praying for Matthew Karol

Prayer During Hurricane Season

  • Prayer for Hurricane Season
    O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. Amen. Originally dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Audrey in 1957. - Fr. Al Volpe, Cameron Parish, LA

Prayer to End Abortion

  • Prayer to End Abortion
    Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself Never to be silent, Never to be passive, Never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, And never to stop defending life Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, And our nation once again becomes A nation with liberty and justice Not just for some, but for all, Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Great job! I'm jealous... you should see how packed my counters are at the moment...

Mary Ellen Barrett

How did you do that? I can't keep the piles off!

It looks homey and inviting and very pretty.


Well, to be honest, that spot next to the microwave where the cookbook is now, is my biggest "catch-all" spot. My countertop and my tables are horrible, horrible, horrible.

The beginning of my clean-up project began as I was mopping the floors which were horrible, horrible, horrible.

Kayleigh use to do all this. She's too busy with college and work now so I took to mopping and, once I get started, I can't seem to stop. I work from the ground up...literally.

Just don't ask to see my bedroom at the moment. But that is soon to be remedied as well. I have three new bookshelves and once Garrett gets them all up I'll be able to organize my books and get the "piles" off my bedroom floor...none of which, let me say, came from the kitchen countertops. I did "not" transfer. Ha! I took care of those papers as I went.

But my glory is short-lived, I know. Starting with tomorrow's mail, the paper clutter will begin to take over...again. :(


I think it looks great, Cay.

I have to say, your counter tops look great,but the most beautiful thing is that dishwasher.LOL what I wouldn't give to have one of those.

I am enjoying your blog so much!!

Earlier today, as I sat in soap suds scrubbing the bathtub (it was taking too much elbow grease to stay crouching so I simply sat down), I reflected briefly about how I have chosen to be at home. I may not be using my training and practice as an attorney, but let me tell you, I am VERY proud of that shining tub. I am so blessed to be in a position to stay at home. And I, too, have dinner in the slow cooker. Life is good.


Feels good doesn't it?
I'm a working mom (and love my job!), but nothing brings me more pride and fulfilment a than making a good home for my family.
