These next few weeks find me busier than most except maybe those weeks of Advent leading up to our Savior's birth. With two children's birthdays in 5 days,"back to school" preparations to be made, and out of town guests that visit to celebrate the birthday children, the last week of July and first weeks of August become a whirlwind of activity.
So, today, on the feast of St. Anne, it seems especially appropriate to stop, slow down, and offer up my household chores to the grandchild of St. Anne...Jesus. Although I often think about what it would be like to be Mother to Jesus...I tend to forget he had a grandmother too! Good St. Anne...chosen to carry and bear the Mother of Jesus. Did she know the significance of her daughter's birth...
Looking for inspiration to help you celebrate St. Anne's Feast Day? Why not visit Elizabeth Foss' "In the Heart of My Home"? She never fails to touch my heart with her words. And Charlotte from Waltzing Matilda has a sweet treat of a post, too.

Oh, dear St. Anne...full of GRACE...pray for us.
