Continuing with the Divine Mercy

Dear Friends ~

Being that today is Good Friday, I thought I would continue on with my search into the Divine Mercy.

I started a novena to the Divine Mercy today –

Here is the link if you are interested

http://www.praymorenovenas.com/

I hope you will join me and saying this amazing novena.

I also receive daily inspiration from the Divine Mercy Daily –

I will be reading these little meditations every day, and with that I am hoping to help you and me understand all about Saint Faustina.  It is a daily reflection from the diary of St Faustina.

 

Here is one quote from St Faustina  ~  It is one I sometimes struggle with ~

I hope I can make these readings enjoyable for you.

Have a wonderful Easter.

Who knew

Good morning friends ~

I know it’s been a very long time since I have posted anything.

I have had lots of personal things happening in my life, but hope to be back now.

So this seems to be where my eye goes it’s called “Modern Farmhouse”  WHO KNEW

I will be taking a look at this through Pinterest and sharing it with you.

First up is the kitchen – of course what else would it be…..

What I like about this picture:

  1. The white cabinets
  2. The hardwood floors
  3. The dining space next to the kitchen
  4. The touches of blue
  5. The huge window

This is a great accessory for Modern Farmhouse.

I do bake quite often and having glass canisters are perfect, and they look clean and tidy.

 

modern farmhouse 4 What I like about this pantry:

  1. The pull out draws
  2. The open shelving ~ you can see everything, this is especially good for me since I do tend to purchase things I already have.
  3. Space to put larger appliances ~
  4. I believe the door to the pantry is glass – I like that.

I love the coziness of this room.

The kitchen table and chairs are beautiful.

The dough bowl is perfect for Modern Farmhouse –  you can change it out seasonally

This picture reminds me of my Grandma kitchen – I love it.

 

I hope you have enjoyed the first room of our series of “Modern Farmhouse”

Have a wonderful day.

Merry Christmas

christmas 2017-1

 

Tis the season for all merry & holly jolly, but sometimes we are not so merry and jolly are we.  So much to do, so much preparation for that special Christmas day.

We all have special feelings for Christmas weather it be holly jolly or not so holly jolly & merry.

There is so much going on in the world these day,   I wish it could all be perfect, but we do NOT live in a perfect world.

So that being said, when Christmas Day comes to your home remember to wish Little Baby Jesus a Happy Birthday & thank Him for everything He has given you.

christmas 2017

And you know what – The world will be a better place just by saying Thank you.

So from our home to your we wish you an amazing and blessed Christmas Season.

Much love,

Small Fall Wreath

Good morning to you all ~

I saw this on Pinterest and thought I could do that.   Went to Michael’s and purchase a few things I needed to make this beautiful wreath.   My version is a bit different.  I hope you like what I have created.

The inspiration was the ribbon – I love the color and, found a flower similar to that shade of rose.

I love the end result.

Mary did you know

Dear Friends ~

When shopping in a little store in PA “The Potting Shed” I came across this small wooden sign ~ I know this is a beautiful song ~ and needed to have this to remind me what Christmas is all about.

2016-christmas-44

 

 

Mary Did You Know

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know

Just needed to share this beautiful song with you all ~

My gift to you this beautiful Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you all my dear Friends.

Much love,

Rose

I love this little angel – This was a gift many years ago and I love her so much she stays out all year.

My sister gave me this red & white striped material when I visited her in California, I will be using it to redo a quilt for our bed, but I did use a piece for a runner for the Dining Room table.

This mirror hangs in a space between the Dining Room and Family Room ~  It was so pretty I had to share.
