Prayer For The Fruits Of The Holy Spirit

Oh bounteous Spirit, I ask you to bring forth in my life your fruits the fruit of love, so I may love you above all things and all others for your sake, the fruit of joy, that I may find my delight in your service, the fruit of peace, that I may be pardoned through your mercy and may rest in your love, the fruit of long suffering so that I may bear, with patience, all afflictions, the fruit of gentleness, that I may subdue all anger and take calmly and sweetly all trials and provocations, the fruit of meekness, that I may forgive freely all who have hurt me and endure with patience all burdens that are laid upon me, the fruit of temperance that I may restrain all my desires and bring them into the subjection of your holy will. Amen.

Working On...

Wish I could show you what I am currently working on. Maybe someday. Imagine if you will then Caron Simply Soft in its many colors knit on US5 needles cast on 20 stitches k1 row, p1 row for 52 rows before casting off. These will be woven together to make balls for Relief Share. I am also knitting  some small stretchy hats for preemies for our local Newborns In Need. Also there are some supercute Barbie dresses that have been knit up.
For Lent this year I finished embroidering the monthly flowers panels along with some cute fairytale characters to be made into baby quilts for Newborns In Need. After finishing those I worked on some burial buntings and then the strips for the balls.
I began reading about the lives of the Doctors of the Catholic church and got through about half before the end of Lent. There was some sorting of items and donated things. Prayers have been said and much pondering about Gods will for our lives. God is so good! May you all be blessed and be a blessing!

God Is Good

There are so many things that are going on in the world today.  What we focus on can make or brake our spirits.  Just like weeds in a garden we can let the negatives get the better of us.  Thank our good and loving heavenly Father he cares for us.  Remember to cast your cares upon Him. You are loved!  This too shall pass.  He leads us by the still waters and restores our souls.  Remember to visit our Saviour in the Blessed sacrament and thank Him for all that He has done and continues to do.

Groundhog Day 2016

Here in Springfield, Missouri the groundhog did NOT see his shadow.  I am certainly ready for spring.  Got a seed catalog and am dreaming of a small container garden.  Am currently working on a granny square baby blanket to be sent to our local Newborns In Need.  For Lent which will begin February 10 this year I intend to finish the embroidered squares for a baby blanket to go to Newborns In Need. Also am cleaning and purging to get things more in order and rediscover items I forgot I had.
Daniel was confirmed January 23! Saint Vincent de Paul please pray for him! Thanks be to God!
Am going to read about one Doctor of the church each day of Lent as well.  May Lent 2016 in the year of Mercy be our best Lent ever!
