Hello!  Sorry I have been neglecting articles for a couple of weeks!  We are getting into a summer routine and I was able to get a couple of articles written!

This weekend is the Feast of Corpus Christi – the Sacred Body and Blood of Christ.  We are so blessed that Christ sustains us with his own body and blood!

shepherd2Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!   This week I have finally written the article that has been rolling around in my head and my heart for about a year!  It is regarding stay-at-home vs. employed moms and the perceived wall we have put between us.  Having now been on both sides of the wall, I wanted to share my thoughts on how we both are doing the absolute best we can for the children we love and adore.  I apologize for the length of the article but I hope you’ll stick with it to the end!

Teacher Appreciation Prayer

May 3, 2015 Posted by Shannon

With Teacher Appreciation Week this week, I wanted to thank our teachers with a prayer!


We moms are teachers everyday

We hold their handsteachers

We watch them play.

But schooldays come and kids go away.

Our hands empty, we know they can’t stay.

At school they find more hands to hold,

Their little minds their teachers mold.

The love they get makes them bold,

School is fun, so we are told.

With great patience and compassion

Teachers give their lives to their passion

They will never really completely know

How their kindness has affected us so.

Yes, teachers love them everyday

They help them work and watch them play

Their hearts, these teachers, give away,

And in their hearts their students’ love will always stay.

An Easter Blessing

April 4, 2015 Posted by Shannon

As Mary Magdalene rose on that first Easter, may you arise Easter morning full of hope.Easter3

As Peter held the burial cloth, may your disbelief turn to blessed belief.

As the apostles reveled in the news of Christ’s resurrection, may you be awestruck by His sacrifice for you.

As the apostles rejoiced, may you rejoice at Christ’s victory over sin and death.

As the two disciples walked on the road to Emmaus, may you feel the love of Christ burning in your heart.

As Jesus’ friends marveled at Christ’s breath on them, may you feel His peace in this Easter season.

As the disciples who watched Jesus’ ascension, may you trust in the hope of eternal life.

Happy Easter!
