We are indeed tested when the cruelty of life touches us our hearts so deeply - may our vulnerability always be our rudder in life and may we remember to tread gently on this earth and all her beings, dear and near and stranger. courage and strength to you in these difficult and painful time


Who can help but stagger, confronted with a tragedy of such magnitude? Thankfully, there is divine assistance to help us in our staggering, and in in our weakness.

I can feel the enormity of your pain through your words. I hope some of our sharing and caring brings some moments of solace for you ♥


Thank you for these gifts of petals... falling from stone, promising life when there is nothing but tears... promising with this gesture and these words... XO


each time I encounter a reference to the firefighters, I feel my throat tighten and my eyes well up. I've even thought of "the last days" with tragedy being so far-flung. your post and images are so touching, sweet Rebecca!


my dear Rebecca,
Sorry to disappoint about the heart. It was a card in my momma's papers. I loved it so much that I scanned it and included it in one of the monthly missives I send the housebound members of our parish. Then in a clean-out, I found the frame so I decided to make the shrine with my own created prayer.
Here it is: May the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary bring blessings to you each day.
If you'd like a copy of the card with the prayer, I would love to send you one.
