Weekend Reflections: Parish Grounds

stunningly blue sky background for trees and building lovely view to glimpse other reflections can be found at James' Weekend Reflections

I viewed this scene and others as I walked St. Mary’s beautiful campus    reciting the Rosary,  feeling uplifted by not only the familiar words  but the beauty of our parish grounds.

Signs, Signs: Marsh Grocery

MARSH Did your brain fill in the parts of the letters that your eyes cannot see? PHARMACY I find it odd that this sign  is on the far left side of the grocery's entrance whereas the pharmacy is located on the right side of the entrance. The Marketplace is where freshcut flowers are sold.

ABC Wednesday: Trays & Teachers

two teachers’ retirement party fond adieu!  

I put school supplies over the teacher's name to retain her privacy. A sheet cake was made  for each of the two teachers. They were each also gifted with a vase of flowers, personal gifts and a scrapbook filled with students' photos  and other memorabilia.
Plus the students of each grade, K-8,
greeted each teacher during the course 
of the party.
I wish both teachers the joy of retirement with time to read all the books they’ve wanted to read, 
to spend more time with their families,
to pursue any hobbies they like,
but had little time to do so,  and, selfishly, time to spend with me!
Happy Retirement, ladies!

Mondays with Mary: The Magnificat

The Magnificat
also known as
Canticle of Mary

My soul proclaims the greatness of the lord, 
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior 
for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant. 
From this day all generations will call me blessed: 
the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him in every generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm, 
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, 
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, 
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of His servant Israel 
for He has remembered His promise of mercy,  
the promise He made to our fathers, 
to Abraham and his children for ever.
