A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

I have been busy sewing knitted panels together for the nine patch baby blankets that are to go to the local Newborns In Need.  This week I will work on knitting their borders.
Outside the sun is shining so brightly and there is a pleasant breeze.  City Utilities trimmed our pin oak last week when our pink climbing roses were in full bloom.  I am hoping our hydrangias will bloom better than last year.  I need to get some flower pots planted very soon.  Again the time seems to be going by so much faster than last year.  I suppose if you are busy doing things you love time just zooooms by!
Michael is enjoying summer school.  Daniel will be 20(!) years old this Friday and got a dog named Violet.  She is so sweet!  Eric is busy doing his own thing.  It is nice he works as close to us as he does.
We won again at our church picnic!  I shared with a man and his two young children.  Made the hearty cheese dip this time.  Everything was delish!  We even had nice weather.
I have been enjoying watching videos on YouTube made by Tim Tracker, Justin Scarred (Randomland Adventures), and Adam The Woo.  Vertual traveling with these guys is good clean fun and informative.  Michael will even watch with us.
Hope you all have your own wonderful day in your neighborhood!

PRAYER FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY

O gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on them.
Be not severe in Your judgements, but let some drops of Your Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames.
And, Merciful Saviour, send Your angels to conduct them to a place of refreshment, light and peace.
Amen.

GOLDEN ARROW PRAYER

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most mysterious and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in heaven on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the alter.
~~~
Our Lord told a Carmelite Nun, "This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully, and heal the wounds inflicted by blasphemy."

Thinking About The Dash Between Dates...

As I sit and watch the funeral of George H. W. Bush I think back to the many funerals this year has brought: Danny Thompson, Marcia Thompson, Virginia Fry Pratt.  These are people I have sat at table with.  Many people will be born today and many will also die.  The relationship we have with Jesus will determine where we end up in eternity.  I pray we all will be in heaven when our time comes! May God have mercy on us all!
