Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Just time for a picture and a song

Many of you asked about the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our home and I will tell you about it after a precious package has been sent on its way to the mama in the post below.

In the meantime, Kimberlee asked to see our image. As part of the Enthronement, the image is to be placed in a prominent place in the home. Ours is above the mantel, in the family room, the center of all the activity (well, maybe second to the kitchen) in our home. I purchased an image from an Etsy artist and had it specially framed with red velvet and white satin matting. We have a spotlight shining on it and I placed a string of white lights and red velvet flower sprays among the candles and statue of Our Blessed Mother across the mantel. It is the best throne I can make for Our Lord at this time.

Pardon my Holstein cowdog. Maggie got a haircut and now she has black spots. (wink)

And because I've been on a Nicole Mullen kick all week, here is just one more. I really love this song.

At the end of every rainbow 
There’s a promise proven true
No matter how you’re feeling now or what you go through
There will be somebody lovin’ you
Deeper than the grandest canyon
And higher than the open sky
Near enough to capture every whisper, every sigh
Strong enough to hold you when you cry

I Am. I was. I am the one who is to come. Yeah
Before and after, I’ll still be what I am and what I was.
All that you need. All that you want.
I Am.



  1. I stopped by to thank you for your kind condolences regarding my sister. We buried her yesterday. She was awesome, and I miss her terribly.

    This was a wonderful post to come to -- the song lyrics really spoke to me.


    1. Eileen,
      You should listen to her "Holy Experience." I think it would really speak to you. I think it's in one of the links a few posts down.

  2. Lovely! What a unique image, and velvet and satin sound beautiful. How nice to have a spotlight shining right there!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
