Things had been kind of hairy around here the past couple of days.
With a LOT going on... David out of town hunting for 36 hours ... finals week (1st quarter) ... it was a perfect storm.
But our guardian angels watched over us.
We regrouped...cancelled TKD and swim team practice....gave Clementine the naps she was needing...and started our day with 2 art projects to honor (and thank) our guardian angels.
Project #1 -
Guardian Angel prayer cards.
The backside held the guardian angel prayer.
Project #2 -
Simple, little, standing guardian angels.
Aren't they cute?!
The two kids who made these...well...let's just say these guardian angels should be a reminder how to behave during school, especially since my little "angels" share the same work table.
(The ideas came from Art 1 for Young Catholics - Seton Press)
A thing about Guardian Angels....
Angels and men are the chief creatures of God. They are created spirits without bodies. Some remained faithful to God and those angels entered into eternal happiness with God. The "good" angels help us by praying for us, acting as messengers from God to us, and by being our guardian angels. ~ The New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism No. 1.
Happy feast of the Holy Guardian Angels!
