Silkies Enriche - SCAM!!!

This is a Public Service Announcement! I am writing it in hopes that it will show up in internet search engines.

A while back I received a package from the company "Silkies Enriche". They said I ordered the "free" sample they were sending me - but I NEVER ORDERED the sample. I'd never even heard of the company!! Furthermore, I am very picky about my beauty products and would never have ordered something like what they sell!! They are NOT my cup of tea.

I assumed the package was some kind of scam and set it aside to deal with it later. Soon they started sending me bills and threatening to send my bill to a collection agency. I have done an internet search that shows this is their standard operating procedure and that it is in fact a SCAM! I will post more of the information I found soon.

Have you ever saved and waited for something? Wanted it so badly but couldn't afford it right away? And then when you finally got it you were soooo excited! Well, imagine soon after getting your cherished item.... it broke!!!!!!

That has happened to my dear friend Esther. She is a very talented photographer. She saved and waited to get the perfect camera. She didn't have it very long when disaster struck!!! While on a photo-taking trek, she tripped and smashed her camera!! She can't afford to replace it, or even fix it at this point.

This is where you come in. Would you please consider donating just a buck or two so she can fix her camera? Please use the link below to make a secure, on-line donation! Thanks so much!!!

Prayers for Studying

As some of you know, I've been taking some grad. classes. Although I LOVE them, I'm finding it quite hard to sit down and study or write papers, etc. In desperation, I googled, "prayer for studying" and below is what I found!!!

Come, Holy Spirit, Divine Creator,
true source of light and fountain of wisdom!
Pour forth your brilliance upon my dense intellect,
dissipate the darkness which covers me,
that of sin and of ignorance.
Grant me a penetrating mind to understand,
a retentive memory,
method and ease in learning,
the lucidity to comprehend,
and abundant grace in expressing myself.
Guide the beginning of my work,
direct its progress,
and bring it to successful completion.
This I ask through Jesus Christ,
true God and true man,
living and reigning with You
and the Father, forever and ever.
~ St. Thomas Aquinas

Most blessed Lord, send the grace of Your Holy Spirit on me to strengthen me that I may learn well the subject I am about to study and by it become a better person for Your glory, the comfort of my family and the benefit of Your Church and our Nation. Amen.
~ Unknown

Christ, the true light, who enlightens and sanctifies every person coming into the world, let the light of Your countenance shine upon me (us) that I (we) may see Your unapproachable light; and guide my (our) steps in the way of Your commandments, through the intercessions of Your all-holy Mother and of all the Saints. Amen.
~ Unknown

Open my mind to your grace, O Lord, as I begin my study today.
You are the source of all wisdom and truth:
so guide me along the right path
that I may persevere in my studies and scholarship.

May I learn well what I need to know;
may I understand what I need to learn;
may I remember what I need to explain.

Give to my efforts the success you would have for them, O Lord,
so that I may use wisely the knowledge I acquire
and thus live contentedly in your love and the service of my neighbour;
and in due time, may I receive by your grace,
the eternal reward you have prepared for me.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.
~ Unknown


I guess there was an earthquake in Illinois last night and we felt the tremors here!! I woke up to them! Will post more when I have time.

I rock!!!

Show me a completely smooth operation
and I'll show you someone who's covering mistakes.
Real boats rock.

Service & Joy

I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy,
I woke and I saw that life is all service.
I served and I saw that service is joy.

- Mother Teresa

Look at my Mommy's art!!!

This is her first attempt at a water color! Isn't she good!?

Experimenting w/ Stamp Carving


Little Sparrow

By Helen Keller

I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

Instead of comparing our lot
with that of those who are more fortunate than we are,
we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men.
It then appears that we are among the privileged.

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence,
and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.


I like your Christ.
I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.

~ Gandhi

Good for Laughs!

These crack me up!!

When you come to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen to you: either there will be something solid for you to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.
