As long as we are on the topic: The Carmelite Sisters have a home very near us. My mother often donated to them and asked them for prayers. Carmelites take a vow of silence. Only the Mother Superior talks. They are not allowed to ask for anything. God fulfills their needs. So once, after the Carmelites had prayed for my Mom, I wanted to thank them. I asked if they needed anything and the Mother Superior said no, nothing. She said they want for nothing. So then I asked if they had a garden. Mother Superior was excited and said yes ! I asked if I could bring them something for the garden, and she chuckled and said, "Miracle Grow!". The irony still makes me smile. I think I better bring them some Miracle Grow today.....it's been awhile.
So school is ending. My Life is Good Shawlette should end today too. My beautiful poppy ended after ONE day of blooming, due to a wind storm. The Queen's Celebration has ended. But, my contest has not ended yet.
I am so enjoying reading the blogs you are all sharing with me. I promise the prize will suit the winner. I am waiting to see who wins to customize the prize package.
I love a happy ending. DOn't you?
