One Thousand Words

A picture is worth...
One Thousand Words...and then some.

Over the summer the hens stopped laying eggs.  There are several reasons why hens stop laying in the summer.  In our area, the heat can get pretty extreme.

In early July, my daughters built a new (and improved) chicken coop and we added a few more hens to the brood.  

The moratorium on eggs has been lifted.
Happy hens, happy mama.

Are they not beautiful!?!

This one's for you...

Little Lamb.

A week or so ago, you asked me why I don't journal on my blog anymore...

I am so glad you asked and I am SO thrilled that you enjoy reading and remembering a few of our family highlights.

There are about 20+ posts that are waiting to tell of some of the adventures and blessings that we have experienced over the paste several months (and years).  I promise to work on them so that you can have a place to reminisce.

I really miss sharing some of the family times here on the blog.  Now that things have settled down a bit, I hope to start posting again.

To help get things going...let's begin sharing about my very favorite season of all,..


Thank you, Little Lamb, for helping me put up all the Autumn decor!

It was fun!  Any you were Oh, So, helpful.

First Communion Candles

The month of May is filled with so many beautiful Marian Devotions and it is typically the month when the Sacraments are celebrated.

Just popping in quickly to post a picture of this beautiful First Holy Communion Candle that was definitely Hand-Made With LOVE.

Thank you to my dear friend that is so incredibly talented and giving...from the kindness of her heart, the First Communion Children will process with these gorgeous keepsake candles.

May the Light of Christ shine brightly on this day and always.

"Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness but will have the Light of life.
 ~ John 8:12

Easter Blessings 2016

Our family has so much to be thankful for, and these past few weeks are no exception.  The days continue to pass so quickly!  My desire to journal here about our days of celebrations and family joys is enormous...but the time to do so, is limited.  There simply is no time to journal and share about all the happenings...
