  1. LOVE LOVE it Nan! Beautiful..... what a lovely prayer.

    Be Blessed....


  2. I remember going to a church service in Sydney once for this feast and parishioners were asked to bring their pets to be blessed. It was a beautiful Mass and one that I will never forget.

    Best wishes for a lovely week, Nan,

  3. Hi Nan!
    Thank you for sharing this image and prayer...tomorrow is, as you know, the Feast of St. Francis and a "high holy day" for those of us who follow in the way of the little man of Assisi! He is still one of my most inspirational people...any ideas about how I could spend the day?

  5. My Church had a lovely display of Saint Francis of Assisi and they are Franciscans. I love the prayer above. thanks.

  6. This is one of my very favorite prayers!

  7. I love Saint Francis and this blessing; thank you for posting it.

  8. This is such a beautiful prayer. I love the way your pictures can be clicked and saved. You are very generous and I'm glad you share with us.

  9. This is beautiful! I love the picture, like Charlotte said that was very generous of you. For me it is very time consuming to make something like this.
    God Bless,

  10. Hi Nan, My very favorite Saint. What a lovely way to celebrate Sunday. I was so happy to see your comment on Pretty Little Things blog. Wow, embarrassing but fun to see my own blog there! Amazing Race, hmmm... I am beginning to really like the Shopping Girls, the Volleyball Girls, and of course the Father/Son team. I was a little uncomfortable with the Birth Mother/Daughter team as it seemed they weren't really there for the race but to see each other for the first time. Why would they choose such a public venue. They mentioned several times this may be an only opportunity to see each other. I have a special spot in my heart for Ghana as my childhood pen pal was from there. I enjoy so much seeing your smiling face when I am out and about visiting. Have a great week! E

  11. This is so beautiful! One of my very favorite prayers... Please come and visit me at my blog - It's about St. Nicholas and Christmas. I'd love to have you follow along too!
    Many blessings!


I appreciate each and every one of your comments! Thank you for taking the time to leave such nice words!
