A Virgin A Day - Day 12

Twelve Mornings With Mary - Final Morning

My dear friends, I have enjoyed each and every day I have been blessed to have been a part of your mornings with Mary...thank you.  This is our final post but I hope that we stay connected as sisters in Christ and lovers of Mary, Our Blessed Mother.  

I am sharing this image of Our Lady of Guadalupe painted on wood.  It was a gift from my last living aunt, who still lives in Mexico.  She is my fathers cousin and we all love her dearly.  She sent all of us girls (I have 5 sisters), one each and they are just beautiful.  As you can see from the size of the 9 foot Christmas tree that I used to prop her up for pictures, that she is quite large.









She permanently reside in our breakfasts nook and radiantly looks at us as we have our meals.  

This 12 day journey was a retreat for me.  It was about faith, religion, meditation, prayer, acceptance, and unconditional love.  And so I end with a very familiar prayer...the Hail Mary.

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

Join us at Rebecca's  Recuerda Mi Corazon see view more and thank you Rebecca for hosting this retreat.  

Stay prayerful.  Your sister in Christ.

I hadn't thought about it, but these 12 days have been a form of retreat for me, too. What an extraordinary Guadalupe and how thoughtful of your aunt to send one to each of you sisters. One shouldn't have envy about another's Marys, but this one really speaks to me.

She's dressed in blue, my favorite color! Heavenly, simply heavenly!

May your journey to year's end and beyond be blessed!

What an amazing gift of spirit your aunt bestowed on you. It makes my heart happy that the Virgin presides over your table, sending her love into your hearts as you begin each day. What a send off! Peace.
