The Annunciation of the Lord March 25th

Here is what our family will be doing for the Annunciation of the Lord (also known as
'Our Lady's Day")

  • Attended Mass at 8:15am
  • Breakfast at home where we will have Annunciation Waffles topped with Lingonberry jam. You can find the Recipe from catholic cuisine
  • We will have a afternoon snack & do a craft in honor of the Annunciation.
  • We will Pray and read books and may even do a craft.
We found some great recipes for today at catholic cuisine
 Lamb (of God) Cupcakes these look so cute.
Lily Sandwiches which we also got from catholic cuisine.

We will color "The Annunciation" from Fenestrae Fidei

Our Prayers for the day will be  The Angelus, The Magnificat, and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin.

 There's a great book we will read called The Annunciation from Mary, The Mother of Jesus. This will be the first year we will read this it looks wonderful.

We are so new to the Church that most of our ideas come from other blogs. I would be so lost without these strong Catholic Women Thank You.

I just wanted to share

An Irish Prayer

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

A day of learning for Mom

I woke up upset about everything and nothing seemed to be going right. I had myself a little pity party and I invited my whole house at least I thought I was going to.

 Now I know better and I know what to do when these days happen just go back to bed and try again. Instead today I decided to try it another way and that was to beat the Devil at this game I was going to win. I did everything I could to put myself in a happy place and it worked well it worked great for the first try. I read my new Above Rubies Magazine, Snuggled with my girls, watched a movie with my family, took a walk with my kids and read the bible with my oldest daughters. Then I felt bad that I felt angry upon waking up and decided that I needed to work on this much more. I had the kind of day today I wish I could just forget.

Next time you wake up and just feel that the world is out to get you Pray, Pray, Pray. That's my new way I will just laugh at the devil and say not today and put the best smile I can on my face.
