Happy Feast day of St. Vincent de Paul

Wisdom from a wonderful saint:

"Let us be submissive to Providence, He will see to our affairs in His own time and in His own way"

"If after so much effort and prayer, the matter is not successful, it will be a clear sign that God does not will it."

"God often delays the conclusion of a holy endeavor so that those involved in it might merit its grace by the length of the work, their patience, and their prayers. This is why I beg you not to grow weary in yours. Although He may delay, He will reveal that it is pleasing to Him, if it is done, nevertheless, in a spirit of resignation regarding the outcome."

"I beg Our Lord, Monsieur, that we may be able to die to ourselves in order to rise with Him, that he may be the joy of your heart, the end and soul of your actions, and your glory in heaven. This will come to pass if, from now on, we humble ourselves as He humbled Himself, if we renounce our own satisfaction to follow Him by carrying our little crosses, and if we give our lives willingly, as He gave His, for our neighbor whom He loves so much and whom He wants us to love as ourselves."

"Be acted upon rather than active. In this way, God will do through you alone what all men put together could not do without Him. "

St. Vincent de Paul, pray for us.

Sweet Moments

Sweet P,

Tonight, after a long day, you decided it was a good night to make Mama's belly pop and move to Daddy's voice. It was the first time he saw you moving around in my belly.

We love you and are praying for you, our sweet little one.

Mama and Dada

Quick note

It's been awhile since I've been consistently keeping up with our family blog. Lots has gone on these past three months and I think I am just now starting to catch up with life. This summer was one thing after another - some great, and some not so great.

I do want to blog about our eventful last three months, and pray I put it all down in a way that does it all justice. So, please bear with me as I, once again, play some catch-up on our family blog.

All our love,
Our little family

So many reasons to celebrate Grandparent's Day!

Grandparent's day was yesterday! We love all of our wonderful and beautiful grandparent's that our little Seph and Sweet P have been blessed with. So much love, goodness, sacrifice, effort, joy, laughter, and presence have been shared with our little.

We love you all so much and are so grateful for all of you! Thank you for blessing our family so abundantly!
