Mary Dearest Mother..........August 11



"Mary, my dearest mother,
give me your heart so beautiful,
so pure,
so immaculate,
so full of love and humility,
that I may receive Jesus as you did--
and go in haste to give him to others."

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Simply awesome! I experience Mary in my little routines such as when I am hanging clothes on the clothespins. I discovered that by saying the Hail Mary repeatedly and consciously thinking of her, I am embraced by her motherly peace and love.

Love to all. Thanks dear Micki!

Easter - What a wonderful idea..to pray while hanging clothes. Did you ever see that holy card where Mary is hanging up clothes on the clothesline? It is so sweet.

Wendybirde - So glad you like it. Kay googled the artist or church and found the site that way.

Yes, I did. That is one of the cards Sr. Pat features in her blog as well. :-)

Thanks, Micki!
