Looking into the Divine Mercy

Good Morning my dear friends ~

It has been long time coming that I talk with you about the Divine Mercy.  I am learning along with you.  I have been introduced to Saint Faustina many times over the years and have decided to take a longer look into her diary –

DIVINE MERCY 1 DIVINE MERCY

The Diary chronicles the message that Jesus, the Divine Mercy, gave to the world through this humble nun. It reminds us to trust in His forgiveness — and as Christ is merciful, so, too, are we instructed to be merciful to others. This message exemplifies God’s love toward mankind and to this day remains a source of hope and renewal. Keep the Diary next to your Bible for constant insight and inspiration for your spiritual growth!

I would love to share with you a few lines from her diary every week.  This is the perfect time to reflect on our lives.  During the rest of the lenten season I would love  you to follow along with me as we see why Jesus pick this wonderful nun to send His message to the world.

Here is the first of the Diary ~

Saint Maria Faustina was born Helena Kowalska in a small village west of Lodz, Poland. When she was almost twenty, she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, whose members devote themselves to the care and education of troubled young women. In the 1930’s, Sister Faustina received from the Lord a message of mercy that she was told to spread throughout the world. She was asked to become the apostle and secretary of God’s mercy, a model of how to be merciful to others, and an instrument for reemphasizing God’s plan of mercy for the world. She wrote and suffered in secret, with only her spiritual director and some of her superiors aware that anything special was taking place in her life. After her death from tuberculosis in 1938, even her closest associates were amazed as they began to discover what great sufferings and deep mystical experiences had been given to this Sister of theirs. The message of mercy that Sister Faustina received is now being spread throughout the world; her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul, has become the handbook for devotion to the Divine Mercy.

Thank you for following along with me as I continue to learn more about the wonderful Saint.

Have a wonderful day.

Much love,

Rose

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.

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.

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.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

 

Hi Friends ~

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

I saw these breakfast cookies on Pinterest, and knew I wanted to make them for our upcoming sisters weekend.   Every year one of the sisters hosts a sisters weekend.  Its the best time.

This year it will be hosted by Lori.  She lives on Long Island so it will be 2 trains to get to her, but so worth it to spend time with my beautiful sisters.

I have decided to make these breakfast cookies as a little fall gift for each of them.   They all like to work out so this will be a perfect breakfast treat for them.

I packaged them in small cellophane bags, and attached the recipe to the package.

Fall the best season

Good morning to you all ~

Today I would like to share a few things I love about the fall season.

As many of you speak of fall ~ we are saying good-bye to summer, and the carefree days.

I remember moving into September as a young mother, and having to start that “routine” again.  Getting the girls use to going to bed early for their early morning wake up.  It was a bit of a hassle, but we always seem to come around by October.

Anyway……….

Here are some of my favorites ~
