The Week in Pictures:
John turned 1 today!!! Where did the year go?
It's also only 9 days until Miriam's 1st Holy Communion & 8th Birthday! This weekend, among other preparations for this special day, I made a white garment for her to wear next Saturday. This week, through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Miriam will be on retreat Thursday evening(4-6), Friday (9-4) and Saturday(9-4). When she goes to Confession as part of a retreat with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in preparation for her First Holy Communion, she'll be clothed in a white garment and renew her baptismal vows.
We now have a "new to us" piano! Miriam is excited to begin piano lessons again!
Father Henry Furman, our pastor, came to bless our new home. We enjoyed a wonderful evening with him here for dinner - what a blessing!
This is the beautiful view from our front porch.
Highlights from the week:
My head is spinning :-) Life is joyfully busy and each day if full, praise God! I am so grateful for the many blessings and the joys of settling into our new home. We are mostly out of boxes and the house is slowly becoming home. We're looking forward to celebrating Miriam's First Communion next week and having friends join us for this special occasion. Our prayers continue to be with each of you during this blessed Easter Season - please pray for us!
