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

streaming...(7/6) whoops, now it's the 7th!

I am incredibly busy with a really, really big project right now...a monumental project which I am not going to talk about yet, but it is taking a lot of time. And it's not the floors, which, thank goodness, are finished.

In the meantime, all week long, from the last Saturday of June until the first Saturday of July we were enthroning the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our home. It was a wonderful experience, one which I hope will bring us many graces, much peace, trust in the Lord...all good things, and the fortitude to handle the things that are not so good, but quite possibly are good for us in the end (on the last page, right Mags?). When I consecrated my life to Our Blessed Mother over two years ago, I knew that she would guide me to her Son. I had no idea how, but I have been trying to be a willing follower. I give her my time, sewing scapulars and making rosaries. With each new bridge I find I need to cross, I tell Our Blessed Mother, please just help me find me way, and she always does. When we were approached about Enthroning the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our home, I felt Mary had led me to this bridge. He is King! He is The King now in our home, and I am grateful, so grateful for my faith that I can experience bringing my family closer to Him.

I can't chat now for long but I was listening to some music I downloaded recently for Faith, music from her dance recital, and I heard this song she danced to and thought how this song really says what it's like to make Christ the center of our home.


  1. Can't wait to hear more about the enthronement...I've heard of it, but no more that the words, not what is done...I didn't know it was a process...I'm interested. I want to do it.

    I'm easy that way.

    I'm not reading many blogs, but miss you and had to check in!

  2. What a beautiful, faith-filled, peaceful post, Barbara! Your heart is overflowing with JOY! Thanks be to God! Mary is such a good Mother, isn't she?!

    I'd like to know more about the enthronement, too. I was given a bit of info. about it awhile ago ... But I'd like to know more. We need this in our family!

    God bless you!

  3. This is a beautiful post, Barbara. We had an Enthronement ceremony just last month as well. I like how you describe the experience - it is wonderful indeed and we are so thankful for this blessing! I would love to see a picture of your Image(s) if you feel so inclined. God bless you for encouraging this beautiful and powerful devotion. Recourse to Our Lady is always fruitful!

  4. Holy yippeeee - another home where Jesus is enthroned as King! Be prepared for an avalanche of grace upon grace. People now crossing the threshold of the door into your home will in a more interior way then before -'know'. I love being Catholic - and the marvelous ways of the Church.


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