My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

My Dearest Daughter

In 1958 my mother got married and moved across the country. These are the letters written to her, mainly by her mother, between 1958 and 1960. Others in the series are in my file.

February 4, 1959

Dearest Maryrose:

Happy Birthday Darling. We couldn't find a sewing basket like the one you saw with Calvin, but we saw a lovely singer portable, so we bought that. It is going out today and you may not get it before your birthday, but it is supposed to come right to your house as singer said they would send it by truck. Now it may come from Santa Fe or Espaniola and therefore be delivered by their regular truck. Of course we are anxious about how and when it gets there. You'll let us know eh?

It is a brand new machine not one with a log of stuff on it, but it does have attachments and does sew back and forth. It also sews over pins. One thing I liked especially, the bobbin is reached from the top instead of having to get it after lifting the head. I'm hoping you like it.

I looked at used ones and there was only one that looked good for $159.95 but it was so big and heavy. This one was $40 chaper and brand new and so neat! Hope you like it.

How are you feeling? Mrs. Lang called this morning asking about you. Everything is fine here. Dad has about two more weeks of work. Out of paper so I" close and write more a little later.

God love you both.


The delightful thing about this letter is that I don't remember my mother ever ever ever sewing a stitch when I was growing up! Grandma was the sewer!!?? Funny thing that.
