DAY 227 of NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: The Assumption of Our Blessed Mother

our blessed Mother…
  her Son… together again
at her assumption

Prayer to Our Lady, Assumed in Heaven
Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, we believe in your triumphant assumption into heaven 
where the angels and saints acclaim you as Queen.
We join them in praising you and bless the Lord 
who raised you above all creatures.
With them we offer you our devotion and love.
We are confident that you watch 
over our daily efforts and needs, 
and we take comfort from the faith in the coming resurrection.
We look to you, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
After this earthly life, show us Jesus, the blest fruit of your womb, O kind, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary.

you are so welcome, dear Rebecca! Since my becoming a member of the Legion of Mary, my love for Mary has made me aware of how she suffered and suffers with us today.

What a beautiful and soul moving supplication, Nonnie. I am Presbyterian, but my husband is a Catholic and on occasion I follow him to his church.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
