Dyeing Dresses Purple

It just so happens that I dyed dresses and other oddities purple on Good Friday. Earlier we had taken part in a Pro-Life Stations of the Cross through the city near us. Just the other day I finished painting them. This is a good paint called Jacquard textile paints that is set with an iron. The paint and the two older girls' dresses I purchased from Dharma Trading Company. You can find them on the internet. Kids can even help though I am not ready for that yet. Perhaps in a few years!!

St. Gianna and her husband are now reunited.
St. Gianna's husband died on Holy Saturday at the age of 98! What a beautiful day to die ~ I only hope I am so lucky! It seems tragic that St. Gianna left her children motherless but only God can see the whole picture. It was reported that when he died he was surrounded by their children. What a testimony to parenthood!! We must remember that our efforts ~ as long as we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Church ~ will bear great fruit. We must trust in God!
