Summer Garden



One of the benefits of gardening is having a ready supply of cut flowers to place around the house.

One of the Eight Best

I am happy to share that Lilla Rose has been named one of the eight best direct sales companies by Woman's Day,
I became an independent Lilla Rose stylist in 2014. When I first signed up, I thought that I was doing so for the 30% discount, but I soon realized that selling beautiful, comfortable, durable hair accessories is a great way to earn a little extra money. For a one time fee of $49.95, plus shipping and tax, Lilla Rose provides a free website and commissions of 30% to 45%. There are no quotas to meet. This means that I can focus on my family. I am thankful that I found Lilla Rose, as the extra income really does help my family. I am also thankful to have made some wonderful friends. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Lilla Rose consultant, please let me know. I would love to have more people join my growing team.

Lego Cake

Cecilia knew exactly what cake she wanted to make for Kieran. The day before his birthday she busied herself making the cake. The finished product took my breath away.

Cecilia tells me that the cakes are labors of love for her younger brothers. May God bless her for using her talent to please her brothers!

The joy of blowing out the birthday candles is too funny not to share.

Dinosaur Cake

As our little boy's birthday approached, I knew that I wanted to make a dinosaur cake for him. However, when it was time to make it, our youngest was extra fussy and wanted to be in my arms. Cecilia readily volunteered to make the cake. I told her what I wanted and she got to work. The finished cake looked much better than I had envisioned. My children are blessed to have a sister who enjoys making fancy birthday cakes for them.

The Lamb Suffered for Us

"The Lamb who was slaughtered for the sake of our salvation still thirsts – His desire for our salvation is greater than could be shown by His suffering – for His suffering is without end, as is His love."

Words to Remember

"He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the cross, and you will find yourself entirely."
~ St. Catherine of Siena ~

St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!

Lent is Just Around the Corner

Our garden is starting to clothe itself in purple, reminding me that Lent starts next week.


The appearance of the crocuses also reminds me that it's time for me to start focusing on cleaning up the garden of my soul and to help my children to want to do the same with their souls. 


God is good!
