Happy Feast Day!

Happy Feast day of Saint Therese!

(wahhoooo! I finally posted a video! um..I have no idea what those other stuff at the end of the video are. so it's prabably not good to click on them)

For more to read on this lovely day, Mrs. Esther, Mrs. Micki, CT, Joey, and Mom have some wonderful (and funny) posts.

ETWN has some quotes and prayers

...and here is a link for her poems. (it's working this time!)

"Jesus set the book of nature before me and I saw that all the flowers he has created are lovely. The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. I realized that if every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness and there would be no wildflowers to make the meadows gay. It is just the same in the world of souls - which is the garden of Jesus. He has created the great saints who are like the lilies and the roses, but he has also created much lesser saints and they must be content to be the daisies or the violets which rejoice his eyes whenever he glances down. Perfection consists in doing his will, in being that which he wants us to be.
Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be - and becoming that person. "
- Saint Therese of Lisieux, from Story of a Soul

Cy - Congratulations on adding a video. Your way ahead of me technically. I never saw the film "Therese" so this was such a treat. Thank you so much for getting it up for us to enjoy. What a blessing.
