Last weekend was the State Road 38 yard sale. I found a few items including this wood pen craft kit......and a bottle of Lourdes Water. Actually I didn't pay for these items. I bought some other little things and the owners threw these in. I guess they thought I should have them. I've already started to make the wooden pen and I think I'll sprinkle some Lourdes water around the farm. . . . . .
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Lourdes water is water which flows from a spring in the Grotto of Massabielle in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, France. The location of the spring was described to Bernadette Soubirous by an apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes on 25 February 1858. Since that time many thousands of pilgrims to Lourdes have followed the instruction of Our Lady of Lourdes to "drink at the spring and wash in it".
Although never formally encouraged by the Church, Lourdes water has become a focus of devotion to the Virgin Mary at Lourdes. Since the apparitions, many people have claimed to have been cured by drinking or bathing in it, and the Lourdes authorities provide it free of charge to any who ask for it. - I'm hoping for some miracles here on the farm.
Sieze the day.
