I must share some of my newest discoveries on Pinterset- absolutely stunning images of Mary, churches and other Catholic Art and spirituality. Images really do speak a thousand words, especially when painted, carved or crafted under the inspiration of the Creator
FIRST, A QUICK OVERVIEW OF MY NEW LIFE
For the last couple of weeks, I have stayed with a daughter who is on bedrest to prevent a premature delivery, helped daughter-in-law and my newborn grandson and babysat for another daughter while she and her husband finalized buying a beautiful country home. I have kept busy by writing articles,blogging and asking advice about publishing a book. I have crocheted babyshower gifts and Easter gifts.SO….
My new title is the Travelling, Crocheting Grandma.
I have just discovered baby booties and I am having a lot of fun creating something with a mere steel hook and some wool.

5. quote for the week
‘Everything is possible for one who believe, still more for one who hopes, even more for one who loves, and most of all for one who practices and perseveres in these three virtues. All the baptized who are true believers have taken the first step along the way of perfection and will become perfect as long as they persevere in the practice of the following maxims. Brother Lawrence
