We have a very special guest in our home during the month of July. The statue of the Virgin Mary stayed with us for four weeks and left on Simon's birthday. The statue moves from house to house in our subdivision every other two Saturdays, where prayers are offered during the transfer from one's house to the next. The statue of the Virgin Mary overextended her stay in our home because the neighbors were not available to receive her and we deem it best for her to stay until Simon's birthday.
Every Saturday, I buy flowers for her. White flowers is what she came in with, yellow flowers on the second week, roses on the third week, and this gorgeous bouquet of I don't know what before her departure.
During her stay, I taught the kids the Lord's Prayer in Tagalog and they were able to memorize it before she left. Now, they recite the Ama Namin every night before they go to bed just after their "Angel of God..." prayer.
