One Carmelite's Viewpoint of the World
I love all the pictures! She is absolutely gorgeous. Thank God she is well and home for good.P.S. I found your blog through Conversion Diary and I think this is my first comment. So hello!
What a beauty!I'm so glad she's home at last.
She is gorgeous. I'd never guess by looking at her all the trauma she's endured! You are blessed! As is she!
I just spent the last couple of hours reading through the posts from the last several weeks, ever since the birth of your precious little Tess. You have all been through so much and your faith and trust in God is amazing. I found your blog through Conversion Diary and had to come check out a Catholic blog from a fellow Smithie. Glad I did!!
So so happy!
To look at her, you would never guess she had been through so much! May God bless you all! +JMJ+ (P.S. Your blog caught my attention right before Tess was born, because I have a daughter named Abigail, and I am so glad that I visited!)
So beautiful. So thankful all has worked out.
Oh sweet angel baby! Welcome Home!
She looks wonderful. Hope everyone is enjoying having her home.Susan
Does your organization follow the Scriptures and the "Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition" - which is the authentic text on Catholic Faith and Morals ?
i just discovered your blog when Jen from conversion diary linked here as you were giving birth and have been following and praying ever since. I am so glad for your family that little Tess is home. She looks so big and bright-eyed! In my mind while reading your story, I kept thinking of a little tiny baby, but it is good to see that she has grown well throughout her ordeal. :) God BlessAmy :)
So happy for all of you! I don't know you personally, but I found your blog recently, it really touched me and we have been praying for you all! I can't imagine what a terrifying ordeal that must have been to live through. She is so precious - what a blessing!Elizabeth
What a long month September has been for you! I know Jesus and Mary have been with you all, upholding you. Little Miss Teresa has certainly been worth the trouble, but I pray for a season of peace for you all, to just settle in and enjoy being a family.
I have not checked your blog since last Thursday, and I am amazed at what your family has been through since then! Thank God Tess came through the surgery successfully!A thought that came to my mind after I read about Tess's latest trial: I read in St. Teresa of Avila's book about her life that she had an experience in prayer during which she felt she had been pierced through the heart with love for Jesus. Someone in my prayer group told me that after she died, St. Teresa was found to have an actual hole in her heart...Not sure if this is true or not, but it's interesting.I hope Tess continues to do well!
Oh, praise God!!Thanks so much for the pictures. I can't wait to show them to my kids - they've all gotten involved in praying for little Tess.
