Sacred Heart Bead

This bead is finished a few days late due to the flu that has knocked us all off our feet.  I am now convinced that having to take care of sick children and a sick husband while being sick myself finishes second among the great sacrifices of motherhood- right after childbirth. You can bet I was saying, "Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!" 

Here is the process of making the Sacred Heart bead.

Some day I would like to make an Immaculate Heart of Mary bead to complete the devotion. Speaking of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, this website is an excellent resource to learn more. 

"Consume me in the burning fire of thy holy Love, so that I may be so absorbed and transformed into Thee that I may no longer be but one with Thee. Amen. "
taken from, The Prayer To The wounded heart of Jesus.

Mrs. Harkins:

We are concerned because you are not reading the memos we have been sending you. Let us reiterate: Under NO condition are you allowed to get sick. You are a mom, after all,
This rule applies until your little ones are grown and gone.
You will be in Serious Trouble if we discover you are violating this rule again.

The Powers That Be

LOL! Those memos must have gotten lost in cyberspace. I'll try harder next time ;)

awesome bead! Hope you guys are feeling better soon. Being sick really stinks, especially when we have so much to do already as moms of little ones! Take care!
