Rose Petals

Dear Friends, I wish you a blessed Feast of Saint Dominic. For visitors who are not familiar with his story, check it out on the Saint of the Day link on my sidebar. She also used him as an instrument to promote the devotion of the Rosary, a set of biblically based prayers that rise to heaven like a bouquet of roses to Our Lord.

Yesterday, Nora, Bridget, Larry, and I drove up to Hershey Park for the day (to celebrate Nora's birthday). On the way up, it began to rain--a lot. So we prayed the rosary, entrusted our day to the Lord (come on Jesus, you're not really going to ruin a cute little 9 year olds' special day are you? puppy eyes towards heaven . . . ), and He was kind and held off the rain from the moment we entered the park until the second we left. Thank you! I know that makes the rosary sound like a lucky charm, but honestly, it's a powerful prayer (especially on the lips of a beautiful child like Nori.) Lovely day!

Another note on roses . . . Heather & Mike's wedding on Saturday was gorgeous! Vocally, I wish I hadn't been so rusty, but it was lovely to sing with that small choir again.

Speaking of roses . . . Larry wins the Sweetest Boyfriend award. (Enjoy your time at home!)
Sorry Adrienne, no more public details. ;)

this is the part where Larry looks down, shuffles his feet, and says "aw shucks"
