my photos, my thoughts
There are so many different Mary images and all are equally beautiful.
Beautiful traditional prayer, Norma.
She's simple and elegant.
I immediately recognized the candles. Would give anything to have a holder like yours. It is beautiful. The Madonna is so beautiful. I am a non-Catholic, but was educated by Dominican nuns and a boarder. My children were educated by Religious of Christian Education through the 9th grade. That order came come from France. Now I have started reading book after book written by women who were nuns but later left their orders and now living married or single lives. I am fascinated by and blued to their stories. They are all different while at the same time having many things in common. Right now I am reading about a sister from Ireland who is "a begging nun" in India. I am learning so much. Hope you are well. Finally I am back on my blog again. genie
Lovely statue of Mary and child.
I bought this metal wreath at a Family Christian store. Here is the web site: http://www.familychristian.com Since it is a national store, you might be able to find one near you. However, if our parish has a wreath workshop next year, I plan to go. This year I had already volunteered to read The Polar Express for children at our local walking trails depot.
Beautiful photo of 'Our Lady' ~ your comments amazed me ~ not only did the Sisters of Notre Dame influence me ~ the special Sister was Sister Agnes of the Sacred Heart ~ It was quite a divine intervention for me through her ~ blessings to you ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^ps. thanks so much for coming by and sharing your comments ` I am elated and blessed.
I like that we are all sharing our thoughts. Beautiful Mary. Thank you.
I am always in awe of these incredible statues and never tire of taking in their loving essence, fueled by all who visit and adore them...
the gesturing of the arms...both mary's and baby jesus takes my breath away.
Thank you for visiting Nonnie. I to am admiring your advent wreath and I actually attended a craft workshop in my parish last week and made one for my household. I do enjoy seeking everyones beautiful Mary's. Jenny
