If you look real close, you can see the tumbleweeds stacked up like a snowdrift in the corner (left picture). On the right picture, see the horse trailer full of them! Maybe we'll get some real snow soon!
We pray that the Blessed Mother bless you in this new year! May she protect you under her mantle! We will remember you all in our Holy Hour tonight on New Years' Eve!

Praying that you all have a very Merry Christmas!
Lord, enlighten the darkness of my heart,
Give me right faith, fervent hope, and perfect charity.
Lord, give me insight and wisdom,
so that I may know your Holy and True Will.
(a prayer of St. Francis)

Wow! We are very happy how our first FUN Raiser turned out! The gym was packed with people. One of the best things about it was watching everyone else have fun -- there were lots of people there who knew each other, enjoying each other's company, etc.
As Advent is getting close to the end, please take time to be with God this week. Pray about what God is asking you to do now, invite Him into your heart even more than ever.
God bless you all! We're praying for you!

This pic is from the Catholic High School retreat....
I (Sr. Mary Michael on the left) put all that on over my habit and veil! We did a skit called "No Control" demonstrating what a person looks like that has no self-mastery. It was fun! I was the mom with no control . . . . I had 2 cell phones (one for texting and one for talking), an ipod in an ear, no time to cook supper for the kids, etc.
Pictured with me are 2 members of my retreat team! They did a GREAT job!
