Happy Birthday!

Today,

SoldierBoy turns 24

and The Queen of Hearts turns 16!

Where has the time gone?!

Happy birthday, kids.

I love you both so very much!!!!

It is also the feast of St. Faustina, a Polish nun who received the Message of Divine Mercy from Our Lord. You can read more about St. Faustina and the revelations made to her in her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul. I highly recommend this book. (The amazon link above is to a leatherbound edition.  There is a mass market” paperback version available as well, but it “usually ships in 1 to 3 weeks”… and the print is too small for these eyes!)

Charlotte’s Divine Mercy Icon would be an appropriate coloring sheet for today.

St Fautina, pray for us!

O Blood and Water,

which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus

as a fountain of mercy for us,

I trust in You.

    Josh nearly had Heleyna as an 18th birthday pressie-but she decided to play up badly and got delivered two days before. (Safely thank GOD!)

    It’s my birthday tomorrow!

    How neat! Two birthdays on the same day! Do they enjoy it or…not so much? Hope they both have wonderful days!!!

    I share my birthdate with a cousin and we always celebrated together while our families were camping. Fun memories.

    Oh, I thought of them all day!! How were the shoes??

    • They do not fit! Urgh. but…shhhh… I am keeping them for The Mad Hatter. They are on her Christmas wishlist and will fit her. This weekend we are all heading down to the outlet mall (CarKiller’s idea… he signed off on his pass approval yesterday!) so I will just buy another pair. I will “accidentally forget” to bring the wrong size back and will “plan” to do it later.🙂
