Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Our Little Flowers-- May Crowning Tea

Yesterday, we had our Little Flower May Crowning Tea.

We set the table for 15 girls, ages from 4 to 18 years old.

I was very bless to have a tree bloom these beautiful pinkish flowers.

One of the moms brought a few St. Therese's goodies, such as bookmark with her medal, a very small statue, a rose petal with a virtue, rose stickers and St. Therese's prayer card.

You can't have a tea party with out tea sandwiches, devil eggs, mini cheesecakes and many more delicious treats.

Sweet girls enjoying a wonderful afternoon with dear friends.
As she crowns Our Lady, (which her crown was made out of flowers from one of the families), the girls sang a beautiful song, Mary of Grace.

Well, while the girls were inside, a dad and his boys cut down a dead tree (my husband help some) and then cut the tree into pieces for wood burning for the winter. It sure was a sight to see the tree fall!
The girls and the moms had a very sweet time.
Our Lady must be proud of these young ladies taking the time and pleasure in honoring her!

May you have a Blessed Month of May!
