The Sacred Heart And Me

Today is the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (just FYI, it's a movable feast day that always occurs 19 days after Pentecost and is always on a Friday).

While growing up, I recall many litanies to the Sacred Heart and prayers to the Sacred Heart during the month of June (the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart)  at our local parishes. I wouldn't say that I had a devotion to the Sacred Heart, but was drawn a bit to it.

But now, the devotions and prayers have a bit more sentimental meaning and have generated a new-found love for Him. Why?

Two years ago, on the feast of the Sacred Heart we found out we were expecting her:

One year later, on the exact same feast day, we found out we were expecting her:

Should it come as no surprise then that Miss Margaret's patron saint is St. Margaret Mary Alacoque who established the devotion to the Sacred Heart? God totally had that one planned.

Isn't it amazing how God works?

I couldn't agree more.

Happy Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus!

*Just so you know, we are not planning a Three-peat. There are no positive pregnancy tests this time around, in case you were wondering. You're all so darn predictable, you know.


  1. Thanks for clearing that up, because you KNOW I would be asking!!!

    And that is amazing that you found out two times on the same date. Love that miracle :)

    1. Ha! I figured as much, Colleen. Thought I better clarify before everyone starts to get ideas.

  2. God's plan is beautiful isn't it? And His plan for your family is so great!! I love hearing about God moments. David had to work with an elderly, Baptist lady a couple of years ago. She would refer to these moments as giving her Holy bumps (instead of goose bumps :)

  3. Beautiful:) And both girls are too:)


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
