Wonderful day!

Today was family day at my church. After Mass, we took Michaela through the Stations of the Cross and then there was a beautiful Lenten presentation at the center. There was a talk on the 40 days of Lent and after that a live Stations of the Cross. The kids and parents dressed up in costumes and "Jesus" carried his cross from station to station. We were station six where Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. It was very touching and a great way to help children understand The Stations of the Cross. Kids are very visual, it helped get Jesus' great sacrifice for them across in a powerful way. The narrator did a wonderful job speaking to the young children in a way they could understand and relate to. Just beautiful!

In the afternoon, I met with my mother and a friend to do the Mercy Chaplet and the Rosary. It was so gorgeous outside that we could have done it outdoors! It was in the fifties today :)

Tonight I was very excited because I managed to get utterlythine.com for a domain name. Years ago I had the domain name heavenlyhand.com but lost it because I forgot to keep up the payments on it [and it was only $10 dollars]. When I remembered and tried to get it again someone had already grabbed it. Anyway, I was pleased to get utterlythine.com since it is  the name of one of my blogs. I called the new website Utterly Thine, also. [I bet that comes as no surprise.] I am already working on a template for it but it won't show up for 48 hours. Since I am computer illiterate, [ as I'm sure you all know :) ]  I am using the prayer and push random buttons method on my site. Hey! It worked for blogger! It would be nice to have a website along with my blogs. I was thinking that I could make an official blogroll  and prayer site [among other things] out of it. We'll see...the Lord may have other plans for it :)
