Christ and Kids Triumphant!

~This week we have celebrated Christ and Kids Triumphant~

First of all, I am grateful for all the prayers this week...Thank you all!

We had no idea that we'd start the week with my Grandfather passing away on Monday...
 I was so thankful that I was able to pay him one last visit on Sunday.
He was alert and I was able to tell him that I loved him...despite the gaps in our family relationships.
I have come to realize that those are 3 mighty words.
He was a WWII Veteran and a man of "his own way."
It wasn't a tragic loss for our family but a sad one, in many ways, including the spiritual sense...
Lets just say we have a new soul to dedicate our prayers to.
I am trusting in God's love, peace, and mercy.

Moving on to our triumphs!
We survived a week without Dad...
well, kind of .
We had moments like these!
Gotta love this expression...
"Is Mom gonna laugh, scream, or cry?"
My jaw dropped wide open...
The silent scream "AAaaaaaack!" never came out.
Just a surrender to my sanity with a good hearty belly-laugh...gotta love it.
And Praise God, we are all healthy again!

The trophies rained down this week, as we wrapped up a season of sports.
After a few awards ceremonies, we've had our fair share of pizza for awhile!

Celebrating the end of the week was
Christ Triumphant,
the best part of the week!

We made these fun 
Christ The King Krispy Crown Treats!
We put yellow food coloring in our Rice Krispy mix...
Then used a crown cookie cutter to make the kingly treats!
Mini M&M's were used for the crown jewels
and red gel icing for the cross and trim...Easy peasy!
This weekend, we celebrate the last Sunday of our Church year,
The Solemnity of Christ the King.
Jesus is Christ the King, triumpant over sin and death.  He came to lead us into His kingdom, the kingdom of God.  He rules over all of us with love and mercy, and His kingdom will last forever.
Now if that isn't reason to celebrate, I don't know what is!

~Prayer to Christ The King~
Christ Jesus, I asknowledge You as the King of the Universe.  All that has been made has been created for You.  Make full use of Your rights over me.  I renew the promise I made in Baptism, when I renounced Satan and all his works.  I promise to live a Christian life.  I, with fervent love, undertake to help to the extent of my means to secure the triumph of the rights of God and his Church.  Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer You my poor efforts so that all hearts may acknowledge Your sacred royalty.  May the Kingdom of Your peace be established throughout the entire universe.

I also wanted to share this easy and Awesome Christ the King craft from

If you print and color on cardstock paper,
it makes a quick and easy center piece for your tables this weekend!
