With all of our imperfections, we begin and end each day at the foot of the cross. It is here where our story begins and we pray it is where it will end. "Jesus said: Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." ~Matthew 11:28-30~
Listen to God's voice at the foot of the crucifix." ~St. Gaspar del Bufaro~

Highlighting The Final Week of Advent
~Parish Christmas Party~
The final week of Advent had us enjoying moments of celebration and anticipation!
We began the week with our Parish Christmas Party
to honor the babe in the manger, Christ Our Lord, who came to save the world.
If you can find a group near you, I highly recommend it!
A trip to "The City" with my Mom
was a fun addition to our week.
This is my Mom and my youngest sister,
who works in the City.
It was fun to see where she worked and have lunch together,
a rare treat in our busy lives!
Grandma Judy and her Oldest Grandson
And me with my Oldest Son...
We did a small amount of shopping but mostly enjoyed quality family time and enjoyed the sites and sounds of Christmas in the City. At the day's end it was a bonus to enjoy dinner with another sister! (I have 3, so getting to see 2 in one day was a treasure)
~We found a Catholic gift shop connected to
Old St. Mary's Cathedral so this was my favorite purchase~
Now it's time to finish the baking and wrapping.....
