7 Quick Takes Friday

Back again with another 7 Quick Takes Friday thanks to Conversion Diary.


Today's O Antiphon is:
O Radix Jesse
. With this O Antiphon we have come to the time when God was preparing the line of David (about 11oo B.C.)


This quick take is courtesy of a friend of ours. Here is the miraculous story of this picture:

Here are a few pictures from the Blue Knights' pizza party last night. As I told the dads, this first picture of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima somehow managed to be on my camera as we headed to the Pizza Party. Only thing is, we had this travelling statue at our house in May of 2007. I did take a picture of it, but it was with our old, $20 camera, which had built-in memory. No memory stick. I downloaded it on our computer a year and a half ago. We got our new camera last Christmas, and the memory stick a short time later. Needless to say I was dumbfounded when I saw this picture, that I took a year and a half ago, on our new camera. I asked my wife and the kids if they somehow brought the picture up on our computer, and took a picture of the computer. They looked at me as if I lost my marbles. My son and I asked Our Lady to be with all of us at the pizza party, since this is Her group. I guess she wanted Her picture to be included, along with all the other pictures of Her brave little knights. She certainly must love and appreciate these little guys and their prayers more than we know. Pretty cool, huh?


I really can't stand blogger sometimes. As soon as you copy something in, the rest of your post immediately takes on the font and boldness of the copied matter how many times you try to change it!!!!!!!!!!


As I mentioned yesterday, here are some photos from the Little Flowers Catholic Dance and Theatre Troupe's performance of "A Silent Nativity". This first picture shows Mary and Joseph preparing for the birth of Jesus.


Here are the angels announcing the birth of Jesus.


The evil King Herod....(don't ask me why the font changed again. See #3)


Everyone rejoicing over the birth of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior!

Try not to notice the change in venue too much. We did two performances in two different places and I really liked this picture! Hope you enjoyed them, too!

God Bless!


  1. The whole font thing drives me nuts, as well, and I try to combat that by... well a whole lot of things, some I'm not really too proud of. :)

    By the way, I LOVE your new header photo - it's AWESOME!!

  2. #3 drives me crazy too. And when the published post doesn't reflect or obey the spaces that I put between paragraphs!

    Thanks for sharing your quick takes!

  3. I so agree with you about #3! I worry sometimes that people will think I'm computer illiterate because of blogger's quirks. Your play looks like it was beautiful.
