Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son

The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported.

Works for Me Wednesday - iPiccy free photo editing.

Last April I wrote that I had found a photo editor online to replace Piknik, which was bought up and discontinued by Google. That editor is iPiccy.

  • Easily allows me to crop my photos.
  • I can edit the exposure, light and dark effortlessly.
  • Enlarging is no problem.

  • And it's still free!
So here are some of my creations over the year via iPiccy as saved to my Flickr account.
